The repair was quite easy. After watching the easy to follow video, I hit the floor running. The only non-standard tool I used was a butter knife to unhook the clips holding down the top. other than that, I just followed the video. As a safety note, anyone installing a gas valve and pipe kit, please remember to spray a little soap water to insure you have a tight gas connection. Anyway, I was drying clothes 40 minutes after starting the project. I estimate I saved $275 with repairing vs buying a new unit. Also, while apart, I put my shop vac to good use and gave the machine a good cleaning. Kurt.
