It was really easy. First we watched a Youtube video about gas dryers that wouldn't heat, and then we did exactly what the guy recommended on the video -- try to see if the igniter lit (it didn't), but then he recommended we check the thermostat and some other fuses. So, like he recommended, we removed the back, checked the thermostat, etc. We initially bought the wrong part, but when we got the right one, it took less than 15 minutes to get it in and working. It was a snap. Just had to remove a few screws, unplug the old igniter, plug in the new igniter, and put in the few screws that held it in place. EASY!!
