unplugged dryer and removed front panel. removed the screw that holds flame sensor and unplugged electrical wires. then replaced with new. Did not solve problem so I ordered the replacement coil kit and installed them using phillips screw driver and this solved problem. Dryer is working fine now. I found this site very helpful and would recommend it to a friend.

First I replace the Radiant Flame Sensor, but the problem remain. Then replace the two coils and the igniter. Dryer works like it should. If I were to do it over, I would have replaced all 4 components to start with. Thanks for good advice and great service.

Found symptoms on Part Select website and confirmed that the problem was the coils. It was extremely easy to find and the site saved me hundreds of dollars on a repairman, labor costs and marked up parts. It literally took about 5 minutes to repair. Awesome site!!Thank You

The flame periodically came on for 1 second.

Since there were no troubleshooting steps, I had to start replacing the items according to the list that showed the parts that have fixed the problem for others. I ordered one at a time until I got the part that fixed the problem. I went through 4 parts before I replaced the gas solenoids which is what fixed the problem. By the time I was done, I could disassemble that dry in about 5 minutes or less.

Opened up the dryer, to discover the broken belt at the bottom, read model, serial number. Went on line, found sites that gave parts lists and diagrams. Wrote down part no. Used Safari to find the part. PartsSelect was cheapest, had it in stock, and could ship fastest. Sears was more expensive and slower. The part arrived in 3 days as promised.Overall, it was excellent service.

I have never done this before, so I watched the video and also watched a youtube video for this model to repair belt. Used a gallon paint can to hold up the drum, while I secured the belt. whoooo hooo I did it all by myself...59 yr old Female Do it yourself enthusiast! Thanks for all the information.

Dryer would only go through one heat cycle and then after that the dryer would spin with no heat.

I had no idea how to take my dryer apart so it took me a little while to figure out. I hope by me writing this out my experience might help someone else fix their dryer instead of having to buy a new one. 1)I removed the lint screen assy by removing the 2 screws that hold it to the dryer top. 2) I popped up the front of the top of the dryer which is held to the dryer body by 2 spring type clips. Removed by prying up the top using a big screw driver to release it from the clips.3) Reaching through the top of the dryer and feeling down along the front there is one fastner on each side that holds the dryer front to the dryer body. I removed using a nut driver. 4) The dryer front then can be removed by lifting it up to release it from 2 hooks on the bottom that it hangs on. 5) The coils were located at the lower left side of the dryer as part of the gas heat assy. There is a bracket that holds the 2 coils in place using 2 screws. I removed these 2 screws. Then the old coils can be lifted off the valve post. Then unplug the electrical connector from the old coil and plug in the new coils. 6) Reverse the process to reassemble. After this my problem was fixed and my dryer is working great.

I unplugged the dryer from the wall outlet and remove the two screws from the lint filter area, followed the instructions that were in the repair video and put the appliance back together and re=attached the power supply. It worked perfectly. Thanks so much for your service and instruction help.

diognostic suggested thermal fuse or thermistor. Thermistor tested low resistance (<2K olms). Replaced thermistor and dryer heat returned.

Viewed your video on line VERY HELPFUL, problem is the igniter will not stay on long enough to heat up. I just went back on your site and ordered a Thermal Fuse and a Cycling Thermostat for the machine but think it may be to old of a machine to keep trying to repair.

DRYER QUIT HEATING UP..

PROBABLY COULD HAVE WENT FASTER BUT WASN'T SURE ON HOW IT WOULD GO.OVERALL NOT TO BAD.I WISH THE MANUFACTURING COMPANIES WOULD INCLUDE THE BREAKDOWN OF THE APPLICANCES LIKE THEY USE TO,THAT WOULD HAVE HELPED ALOT.ON THE FRONT PANEL THERE ARE 2 CLIPS THAT YOU HAVE TO PAY A LOT OF ATTENTION TO.OTHERWISE YOU WILL BREAK THEM OFF..GAINING ACCESS TO THE IGNITER CLIP WAS SOMEWHAT OF A CHORE BUT IF YOU GO SLOW IT GOES PRETTY GOOD.
