Unplug the dryer. Remove the front of the dryer,(it comes off very easily, just two screws near the bottom). Unplug the wires from the door switch. Find the igniter, unplug the wires, use a 5/16 inch wrench (or pliers or a socket) to remove the one screw that holds it on, then simply fasten the new igniter in place. Make sure that you DONT TOUCH the flat end of the igniter with your fingers or skin,as it will heat up in that spot and burn out early. Plug everything in, put back together. good to go. EASY!!
