Flame igniter would glow and gas would light but only for a couple of minutes, and light again, MAYBE. Clothes might dry after 2 or 3 complete cycles.
Advice. Don't try this repair without a multi-meter. I didn't heed the advice of the reps to whom I spoke over the phone because I was so sure it had to be one of the 3 thermostats that was the problem. I replaced all 3. No luck. So now I'm going to replace the pair of solenoids (coils) and the flame sensor. If that doesn't do it, I'm done. Time for a new dryer. Hint... the high limit thermostat is really 2 items. Buy the kit (both items) to be sure. Moral...I should have bought a multi-meter from the start, and saved myself $ and aggravation.
