Kenmore gas dryer model 110.74982301. Igniter does not glow but shows continuity when tested. Drum turns. Thermal fuse is good. Dryer thermistor shows approximately 14k ohms at 67 degrees. Coils have been replaced. High limit thermostat is good. Flame sensor is good. What else could be the problem or would be worth replacing? Thanks

You have pretty much checked everything but there is no mention of the gas valve. If the igniter has continuity and the flame sensor is working, then most likely the gas valve is faulty (assuming you have gas coming in).

I was under the impression that the igniter would still turn on if the gas valve was faulty. Is this false? Is there any way to test the valve other than replacing it? I’m sure I have gas coming in.

The igniter should turn on if the valve was faulty. We are trying to include any and every part that COULD be causing an issue. We would say to be on the safe side, buy a new valve and igniter if it has not been replaced previously.

That’s what leads me to believe that it’s not the valve or at least not only the valve. I know for a fact that the igniter never gets power so nothing is telling it to turn on. Is there any chance you know where I could find a wiring diagram? I can’t seem to find one. Thanks, I appreciate the help.
