DRYER WOULD ONLY HEAT UP ONCE OR TWICE WHEN FIRST STARTED. AFTER READING OTHER REPORTS ON PARTS SELECT, DEDUCED IT WAS THE COILS NOT OPENING ON GAS VALVE. LIKE CARS, ELECTRICAL COILS BREAK DOWN WHEN THEY GET HOT. REMOVED VENT. UNPLUGGED ELECTRICK PLUG IN. PULLED DRYER AWAY FROM WALL. TILTED DRYER BACK WITH HELP OF SON. TOOK OUT TWO SCREWS FROM LOWER PART OF FRONT PANEL. PICKED BOTTOM OF PANEL UP UNTIL LOCK SPRINGS RELEASED. UNHOOKED ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS. REMOVED TWO SCREWS FROM BRACKET HOLDING COILS IN GAS VALVE. PUT NEW COILS IN, LINDED UP WITH BRACKET NIPPLE HOLE. THEN REVERSED STEPS. WORKING LIKE A CHAMP AGAIN. WATCHED INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS FOR SOME EXTRA HELP. THANKS PART SELECT.
