My dryer is blowing only cold air, so I opened the front cover and did some testing and measurements. When I turn the machine on, it rolls and the igniter gets really bright but no flame or fire on the burner, and then after a few seconds the igniter turns OFF. I removed both solenoids and they measure - the big one 650 ohms and the small one 1.3 kohms - kind of OK. I measure the voltage at the solenoids plugs. After I turn ON the machine, the big solenoid gets 120V untill the igniter turns OFF when the small solenoid gets 120V. I installed them back and checked the sensors. Both measure 0 ohms conductivity. Still the burned does not start. I checked the panel settings, the outside gas valve, all OK.
What else can be wrong?

Thank you,
