Burner will ignite for about 8 seconds then die. Will ignite again after 1 minute for 8 seconds and so on...

First I replaced the thermostat as some of the blogs and forum indicates the thermostat is the problem. After replacing the thermostat and general cleaning inside, problem still exists. Researched again and found out I have to replace the gas valve coils. Replaced both coils. I did find out that you have to put the covers back to test the unit properly. Put the unit in cycle and lo and behold, the dryer is heating again. Thank you to all who blogged their experiences before because it was a big help to all DIY.
