Once I removed the igniter, I new it would be almost be impossible to replace. That igniter is SO Fragile. Be very very careful. I removed the gas tube assembly, where the igniter is supported. I installed the igniter and took a break. The difficulty was trying to put two arms in a small 6x6 cover access. I took another break. This is where the wooden clothes pin comes in. The clothes pin held the gas tube in place. The ice pick help align the screw holes. Carefully, I install the screw to secure to gas tube. Hand tightened and then used a small socket to do the final tightening. I did the smoke test and presto, the igniter glowed and there was a flame and heat. The dryer was fixed.
