I first removed the two lower screws on front panel. Lift/Angle panel up and off. Coils and Ignitor are on the bottom rightside as you are looking at it. I Turned the machine on and watched the ignitor, it did not glow. After unpluging Dryer from Electrical outlet, I removed the 2 coils by removing a small plate that holds them in place. Checked them both with a ohm meter and got readings similar to what someone else suggested that they should be. I then removed the ignitor which is held in by one screw. I got no reading (infinite) on the ohm meter with the ignitor. I ordered a new coil pack and ignitor since they were both already out and they were not too expensive. I received my shipment in two days, put them in place. with panel still off, I plugged it back into the electrcial outlet and turn it on. The ignitor started to glow within a few seconds and a few secondas later the gas ignited. Shut it off and put front panel back on. Total job less than 30 minutes. More time spent online researching what the problem could be. Ohm meter was used to help identify that the ignitor was the bad part.
