Kenmore gas dryer

Can I run a jumper wire across the flame sensor wires to see if the burner lights. If it does that would show the flame sensor is bad.

Welcome to the forums.

Unfortunately the flame sensor is dead shorted at rest.
It's best to disconnect it and see if it is normally shorted or open.

Welcome to the forums.

That's a Whirlpool/Canada manufactured appliance for Sears/Kenmore.
As near as I can tell 1993-1994.
