My 1st thought was that the valve was bad but after watching a whirlpool video on how to trouble shoot I put an amp probe on the wire to the igniter and discovered that the amp draw was not getting high enough to open the valve. The vale calls for 3 amps but the amps on the igniter only got up to 2.4 amps even though the igniter was glowing red hot. I ordered the new igniter from PartSelect and it was here in less then 2 days. It was a perfect fit and took about 30 mins. to install and it works perfectly. I also ordered a motor and a blower wheel for a Whirlpool Electric Dryer, Model #LEC8858EQO, and it arrived in less than a day and again both items were an exact fit and the dryer now works perfectly. Great service and fast response by PartSelect. I will defiantly use PartSelect again.
