The coil kit showed the correct numbers and it worked intermittently. However, when replaced everything worked OK. I also replaced the igniter, however, I do not believed it was a problem. However, I left in the new igniter.
Were these instructions helpful?
Unplugged,disconnected the vent hose. There was no need to take off the back. Removing the screws at the vent/screen and the two in back enabling the top to be opened. Loosening all the screws to get the front panel off. I was able to replace the part in a few minutes, then put the dryer back together. No luck dryer still would not heat.The recommendations from this site have worked once in the past. One can follow the recommendation however there is know way to determine what the problem actually is. It looks like this time it didn't work out and we need to look for a new machine..
I ran a complete electrical system check of every component accessible from the rear or top of the dryer. (this dryer has no front access panel). Every component checked ok. I dreaded the thought of having to remove the drum. I went on your web site and watched your tech remove a drum. Nothing to it !. I had the drum out in 5 minutes. I read one of the customer reports about an "open' coil on the gas valve. I checked the coils. The three wire coil had an open circuit. I ordered new coils from PartSelect. as long as it was apart I replaced the Igniter and the drive belt even though both were still working. The dryer works just like it did 25 years ago.
The repair was quite easy thanks to the right parts. Seriously, I'm not a pro and I appreciated how this site had a scorecard on what the potential problem with my dryer was. I simply bought the parts and replaced them. A good nutdriver set came in handy since the entire back of the machine needed to come off to access the burner. Thanks for saving me $500 for a new machine when $40 worth of parts did the trick!
Just follow the instruction on youtube video discover with the Multimeter what the Igniter doesn't work, I make the order with you(very easy to order because you have the part) wait 4 days my part arrived and I fix it. and my Dryer is working again Gracias.
Searched for problem on internet and found your diagnostic tools and repair videos. I ordered parts... when they arrived I took the machine apart per the video instructions, and replaced the old parts. The dryer works. Ta Da :) Thanks
Unplug the dryer. Remove the lent carver screws, remove catcher. Pop up washer top on front side and fold the top backwards. Remove top 2 nuts that hold front sheet metal of dryer, then pop loose the bottom just as you did the top side. Set aside front cover. Go under the drum and push the belt tensioner forward to release the drum belt and remove tensioner from its slots. Slower pick up drum by belt and move forward out of the back panel and set aside. The coil packs and the igniter are now in plain sight and pretty self explanatory to remove and replace. Just a few screws and plugs for coils, and one screw and plug for igniter. Be very gentle with igniter cause it’s a very brittle and easy cracked component!!! The thermal fuse is onthe backside of the dryer. Remove the screws and take the panel off. Locate the thermal fuse. Remove the one plug and one screw and replace with the new unit. reassemble is reverse of disassembly on back and front.
Removed lint trap from top. Removed two screws by liny trap hole. Pried front edge up with putty knife. Lifted top enough to get to inside front. Disconnect the door switch. Using nut driver, removed two hex head screws that held front on from the inside. Lifted front up and away, Watch out for the drum. Removed two screws from gas valve. Unclipped both coil connections. Changed coils and attached clips. Used socket set to remove hex bolt that holds igniter. Unclipped old one, Reattached igniter. I did not have to replace igniter but chose to since I was opening dryer. Changed the thermal fuse 9 months ago. This is located in the back of the dryer..
I removed the front panel by removing the two screws holding the lint chute pulling out the screen. Pulling the top of the dryer forward a little and lifting to clear the panel clips. removed two 5/16 hex screws on each side of the front panel while holding the drum and lifting up the front panel off the two front clips. Removed the burner assembly, assembled the new parts and reversed assembly. The fuse on the back only had one screw easy to get to. good Idea to vacuum out all the lint inside and around the motor while its apart also good time to remove the lint chute and clean out the inside of that as well.
replaced the thermal fuse and it works great. did not need the igniter or thermostat.
