Kenmore 11087572110 gas dryer coil replacement.

I watched the video below about replacement of the gas valve coils. The video claimed there was an important spacer for one of the coils. When I disassembled the coils on my dryer I was careful to look for the spacer but I did not find any spacer. Is it possible that my dryer does not need one? Why was it designed with a spacer, maybe some valves do not need a spacer? I already ordered the suggested replacement parts but was wondering if y'all think it will work or is it hopeless.

At 4:10 He shows a spacer that I do not think was on my Dryer.

This is the coil kit I ordered.

The spacer is on the coil closest to the front of the machine if I remember correctly. Sometimes it comes off with the old coil.

I got a spacer, still doesn't work.

I bought a used valve figuring I could use that spacer. The gas valve does not appear to have opened.

I waved an iron knife over the coils. The coils appear to be activated. The igniter lights up. But then the igniter turns off. I do hear a click, but no gas.

Is there a way to 'jump' the heat sensor and force it to let gas through just to see if it is the sensor?

Otherwise, I may try to either replace the valve or the entire assembly ($40 + 1 week). Maybe it is time to throw in the towel?
