Dryer ignitor lights up. Gas valve opens and the gas kicks on....runs maybe 10-15 seconds and then cuts off.   System resets after a few minutes and the cycle repeats.  Dryer nevers reaches operating temp.  

 

So for I have changed the ignitor (it was bad).  I have checked the flame sensor...good.  I have changed the coil packs...I have changed the operating thermostat (the one with the 230 to 50 written on the back).  Have checked the high limit thermostat (and of course it fine).  Also check the thermister...good.

 

What else could it possibly be?  The only thing that I can think of is that the control panel temp control switch is not putting out the proper voltage and is some how forcing the operating thermostat to close and open improperly.

 

Please help...

Are you sure the thermistor is good? I had one do the exact same thing and the thermistor was bad. Exhaust temps would only reach about 85 degrees. It would fire for just a few seconds and then shut off, then repeat.

How did you test the thermistor?

Try cleaning the moisture sensor bars. They might be gunked over with fabric softener sheet residue.Part number: AP4045518
