I have a Kenmore gas dryer model # 110.77732791. Just yesterday it stopped heating. The drum still turns and when the timed cycle is complete it buzzes and stops. However, it never gets hot. I took it apart and tested thermal fuse for continuity (OK). I don't see the ignitor glow at all. Tested resistance on ignitor(75Ohms) (OK). I tested power to the ignitor and here is where it gets interesting... when I test either leat against the dryer frame (neutral) I get 120V AC when the dryer is running, but when I test across the leads for the ignitor, I get only mV. I can't figure out the cause of this, but I can see where is would be a problem!!! Also, I tested the resistance on the primary and secondary gas coils (solenoids) and they check out with the recommended resistance. the flame sensor is open (reading essentially 0 Ohms as I understand that it should). Has anyone else ever run across this before or have any advice on how to fix it. Thanks for your time, help, and expertise
