A:

If I understand the dryer burner will light for a moment but then goes off and never comes back on.

The key question is does the ignitor come back on?

If the ignitor keeps cycling on and off with no flame then most likely the gas coils or valve are the problem. The 279834 coils can be obtained in a kit with both for about $25 dollars.

The 279923 valve is about $135 dollars.

I'd suggest trying the coils first.

If the flame comes on but goes out right away then try removing the vent of and see if the flame stays on.

Any parts you need can be obtained form the following link: Sears PartsDirect .

I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional details for further assistance.
