    Was getting no heat during run-time, so disassembled dryer to perform ohms tests with one wire unhooked. Results:

    Heating element: thermostat-->passed
    Heating element: fuse-->passed
    Heating element: ground check-->passed
    Blower housing: fuse-->passed
    Door frame: Moisture Sensor Bar-->Failed

    With the dryer disassembled, and electrical power and gas turned on and when depressing the open-door limit switch, pulling out the start button (intellisense, and timed heat as well as gentle, normal temp), there is no flame.

    Question is: would a failed moisture sensor bar prevent needed feedback to the system that's required to ignite a flame?
