Dryer was initially heating up, then ran cold
I did not do a continuity test on the components, I did some research online and just replaced the high probability suspect parts associated with these symptoms. 1. Remove the three screws on top rear face of the plastic housing. 2. Remove the screws holding the top cover. 3. Remove the screws holding the Electronic Controls board. 4. Disconnect the ribbon cable connected to the printed circuit control board. 5. Remove the front control board assembly. 6. Remove the screws of the sheet metal cross brace (on top, front). 7. Remove the front panel (door assembly). 8. Have someone lift the drum up slightly while you undo the drum pulley belt from the spring loaded pulley. 9. Remove the large drum (it will just pull out, you will have to slightly spread the side panels outward). 10. You now have access to the primary / secondary coils and the Igniter. 11. Replace the faulty component. 12. Reassemble.

Our gas dryer would heat up initally & then stop heating.
I viewed the troubleshooting on your website & ordered the suggested parts. Watched a youtube video to familiarize with disassembly. I disassembled the unit & did the electrical checks & found the thermostat tested fine. So I replaced both coils, cleaned everything inside, then reassembled. Started it up and voila, works like a champ aga in. It cost about as much as the service call. I think I save at least $100.00. Thanks

Drier would heat, run but after shutting off hot. Would not reheat.
Use downloadable diagram for number reference. I opened the unit by removing the 2 screws in the front top of door on the inside near #642. Then the two back brackets #452. Took the top off. I secured the whole top unit#13 because it was unnecessary to dissemble. And you would have to open it to take apart the electrical connections. I j ust tied it up to prevent stress on the wires. I took the front off by two screws on #393 the dryer case. You can disconnect the door switch easily. Next below has an access you can reach in and apply pressure to release the tension on the belt. Make a mental note of how the belt goes on as you have to put this on again by feel. Check if its time to replace belt also. Remove belt then drum. All other parts are in good access. I changed part numbers 729,731,550. Both solenoids gave a reading on the multi-tester. I am not sure if it was the solenoids or the heat detector in this case. But changing all three did the job. According to statistics the solenoids fail often for this problem. And changing both is recommended. Your in there so might as well switch them out (Your Call). I was able to reconnect the gas and the electrical and run the dryer to check the repair with the unit open. Reassembly is just the reverse. Wear gloves there are sharp edges, don't loose screws and brackets. Order numbers are WE4X692, WE4X693,WE4X448. I am not too mechanical but once I had the unit apart it made sense to me. Also make sure to clean out accumulated lint. I found much of it inside vacuumed the inside completely.

Dryer would start warm then go cool
I replaced the coils. There are two coils. The GE gas dryer was repaired in this process. Before you begin replacement of coils, unplug your dryer. And understand that the inside of dryer sheet meat is sharp, so use care not to cut yourself. Let's get started.... 1) control panel; remove the screws behind the control panel at the top. 2) open the door. There's two long screws on each side on the inside facing up. Unscrew and remove. 3) Lift the lid, (top of dryer). 4) The control panel is attached to top. slide control panel off hook slides. (control panel does separate from top) Place top on the floor. The control panel stays attached to dryer. 5) Unscrew two screws, one on each inside of the inside front panel, towards the top. Lift dryer drum from front door panel, and Remove front panel. **Note** The front panel is attached to dryer with a wire harness. Either remove, (it clips off), or leave it attached just move front panel out of away. 6) Your coils are at the bottom right. Remove the two bracket screws on the left of bracket. (cramped space) Be patient!!! 7) Remove first coil, Slides up. (the one closest to you!!) Prongs are down. Remember this!!! Attach your new identical coil. 8) Now look at your second coil. Do you see the prongs are on the top end of coil!!!. Unsnap the coil and slide coil up and off. Attach your new coil with coil prongs up. Attach new coil. 9) replace coil bracket and two screws. 10) replace the front panel by lifting drum up, and pushing the front panel in. attach your two screws into front inside top of front panel. 11) attach top lid and insert top sliders into control panel. 12) Attach the The two inside long screws just inside door at the top. 13) attach the screw to the rear top control panel.. Turn and dryer and dry your clothes.

Dryer wasn't heating (or drying)
Our dryer is run 3-4 times a day (8 people in my family) so it is both essential and well used. I have done other repairs so I know my way around the inside. When the heat stopped, I did some research and found it was either the heat detector or the gas valves. As we needed to dry some clothes, I bought both. They are both located in the same area but the dryer has to be put back together to test them. I did the heat detector first. This requires removing the top panel, then front top panel, then the front and finally the side panel (Pro-Tip: when the front is removed the barrel doesn't have support. Shoving a shoe in-between the barrel and the frame will give it what it needs). Replacing the detector was simple. The wires snap on but are easy enough to just pull off. I put it back together and then it would start burning gas and not stay going. This is typical bad valve behavior, so I went back in and replaced those. Now it is drying faster than it has in years. I personally don't enjoy repair work, but I appreciate the fast shipping and accurate information on this site - it is working amazing again...

Replaced both of the thermostats, one is three prong and the other is two prong. Unplug the dryer from the electrical outlet, take off the top of the dryer, take off and unplug the instrument panel, take off the right side of the dryer itself, and the parts are right there in front of you. Actually really really easy, takes longer to ta ke everything apart. Good luck

Remove two vertical screws at top of dryer door opening that secure the top to the front, raise and prop the top half way. Then, from inside of the front of dryer, remove the two hex head sheet metal screws, one on each side, that secure the side panels to the front panel, then lift upward and out to remove the front panel to allow access to parts being replaced on the lower right front. Remove two small Phillips head screws that secure the clamp that holds down the two coils. You'll need a 90 degree bent Phillips or a shorty and small hands to get these out. If you have to use a longer screwdriver, you'll have to raise the front of the dryer tub to gain access. To do that you must open the back (lower) panel where the dryer exhaust exits to gain access to the tub belt spring loaded tensioner. slip the belt off, raize the front of tub, remove the coils and replace everything in reverse order. 30 minutes with the right tools, a little more if not.
