Hi -- my Kenmore 87810100 gas dryer isn't heating.

 

The various fuses in the back all show continuity.

 

There are about 120v reaching the burner assembly, however the igniter is not heating, and it seems that only about 40v are reaching the igniter.  I get continuity at various levels across the coils.

 

I also get no continuity across the radiant sensor.

 

So I gather that the radiant sensor needs to be replaced, but is that the only problem?

 

Thanks!

 

Scott
