Maytag Gas Dryer (DG7600) No Flame

What I know:
1.Drum spins
2.Igniter glows constantly on
3.Radiant Sensor shows 0 ohms
4.Coils on Gas value show proper resistance (as per below)
5.High Temp Switch shows 0 ohms

Not sure what to do next.

Can anyone advise. It's old ... time to get a new one?

Testing the Coils:
If you look closely at the coils, one has three terminals on it and we will test this one first. With the coil out of the dryer and the terminals on top facing you, the first terminal on the left is number one, the middle is two and the right side terminal is number 3. Using your ohm meter, measure the resistance between terminals 1 and 2. You should get a reading of 1365 ohms or - 25 ohms. Next, measure the resistance between terminals 1 and 3. You should get a reading of 560 ohms or - 25 ohms. The next coil only has two terminals and it should have a resistance of 1220 ohms or - 50 ohms. Keep in mind when testing these coils, they should be tested at room temperature. If you have run the dryer and they are warm or hot, the resistance reading will be different.
