does the igniter glow? If not check for 110 volts at igniter .
Check for 110 volts at gas valve if no volts check hi limit thermostat , operating thermostat, safety switch on motor,
the coils on the valve & the timer contacts that feed the voltage to the burner.

This is usually the coil packs that cause this. Replace them and should be fine.

Whirlpool... | Answered on May 02, 2011


Gather your tools and follow directions listed.

First start the machine.
Infront there is a little sqaure plastic cover. pop it off and see if you see a glow. If not then grab a quater inch nut driver and take the big black cover off the back. Of course unplug the unit. There you will see a little skinny white fuse. Take one wire off and test continuity. If yes then go to the igniter and check voltage. If not then then the fuse is bad and needs replaced. You can not reset it. Further assistance I am by the phone 877-293-1739 - 574-232-8040 I have the part instock can ship tomarrow for around 13$

This is usually the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video on replacing the dryer coils. If you need further help try this link for troubleshooting a gas dryer

when it's in auto all it does is the heat comes on,reaches temp. then the heat shuts off,when the heats off then the timer advances,when the heat comes back on the timer stops.pop off the plastic cap on the left hand side of the front panel,put clothes in the dryer and run it,after 15 to 30 minutes look in the hole in the front panel and make sure the flame is still liting,also did you clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into.remove the vent line and if that's a long run blow it out with a leaf blower,i had one guy say his vent line was clear and he used a leaf blower and blew out a birds nest,then unplug the dryer,remove the back panel,on the left side take out the four screws and remove the duct and clean that out and the blower wheel,also remove the thermostat on the blower wheel housing and look at the back of it,if lint is stuck on it clean it off and put it back in and try that.also you said you changed out the gas coils,when you removed the out coils on the large coil there's a spacer that goes on the post and sometimes when you remove the coil it gets stuck inside the old coil or if after running the dryer for like 20 to 30 minutes and the flame doesn't lite you have bad gas coils,when they heat up they fail when they are going bad and that will stop the timer from advancing.let me know what you find and if i can help with any questions let me know

There are quite a few things to check on a gas dryer.
  1. Gas valve coils
  2. Igniter
  3. Flame Sensor
  4. Thermal Fuse
  5. High Limit Thermostat
  6. Cycling Thermostat
Here is a video to walk you thru the process of doing the diagnostics on the dryer to find the failed component.
