I first confirmed that the ingitor was working (because I could see it glow with the lights off at the bottom of dryer). I read within Parts Select that intermittent heating was likely the coils and that I could test their resistance to confirm that this was the problem. I removed the coils (very easy) and thenI checked their resistance with a tester. The resistance on one of them was reading 600 ohms instead of the required 1300 ohms. So I replaced them both and presto it works fine. I also took the opportunity to thoroughly clean out the lint (accessible with the front panel removed) and I replaced the lint filter which was ripped and the gasket around the door which was missing a piece. All very easy to do and parts select made it a cinch. For safety I made sure that the gas and electric were off before I did any of this work. oh, I also levelled the foot which made my wife happy.
