I popped opened the top of the dryer and removed the two screws and took off the front of the dryer. Then I removed the two screws to the the cover that holds the drum in place. Then I tested the coils to verify they were bad. I Ordered the parts and replaced the two coils on the gas valve. Reassembled dryer. The door needed to be taken apart to replace the door catch. For ease of repair removr the door from the hinge.
