I removed the front panel from the dryer and observed that the glow plug was not getting hot when the dryer was turned on. I removed the glow plug and verified that power was present using an OHM meter. Power was present. I could also see a hairline crack in the glow plug. The new glow plug took about 2 minutes to install and immediately glows red when the dryer is turned on. Easy fix.
