I followed watched the part select videos on U-Tube and then made the repair. Anyone mechanically inclined should have no problem making repair. Removed the back panel then removed the front panel and drum. Replaced thermostat in rear of the dryer than moved to the front and replaced the two gas valve coils vacuumed out the lint reassembled tested. Dryer worked fine.. I believe the only thing that needed replaced was the thermostat but, replaced all three.
