good afternoon all  have a whirlpool gas dryer lgt6634aw0 wont flame up.  thermal fuse, hi limit, cycling thermos, flame sensor all work fine.  i am a lil rough on wiring schematics, but im pretty sure i am supposed to bypass the red and black wires on this model to verify if timer is bad.  all i get is a click everytimme i hit the start button.  does this mean timer is bad?  when i start it normally (all wires where they should be) it starts fine ignitor glows and goes out like it should, but never any flames.  help would be appreciated.

I can't find a wiring diagram for that c.1993 model

But it would seem that most everything is OK (including Timer) if the Drum Motor runs

and the Ignitor glows

Has this Dryer worked OK up till now at this location ?

Has it been in storage for any length of time ?

Sounds like a problem with primary or secondary coils on valve.  Check both for continuity.

If the ignitor glows briefly and then clicks off, replace the gas valve coils as Brother PDUff done pernted out:  http://www.repaircli...mber=LGT6634AW0

have replaced coils with 2 new sets still no fire and no has never worked at my location.  was working at last location till this problem arose.  i disconnected it from prior owners house so no chance of stuff getting in gas pipe.  how do i check timer?  i am including a pic of schematics.  sorry not sure how to upload a different way.



guess the picture didnt go through

If ignitor glows and has continuity when checked timer should be good.  Flame sensor should be good.  Ignitor picks up voltage on the same circuit as valve coils and flame sensor.  Do the coils snap/click prior to ignitor going out?
