Had no definative directions so kind of had to play it by ear. once I got the top and front off the directions that came with the part were spot on. My biggest problem was I guess I was a little over agressive with the drum and I pulled the tension pulley off the bottom. I had to drill a hole and bolt it back down because I couldnt get the little flanges to bend over enough to hold it. It works now but I havent done a load of clothes yet to make sure it will stay together

Ordered the part, called a friend that is a LP worker. He came over and in less than 15 mins had the new orface and regulator plunger installed and another 10 mins to install new flex pipe and shut off valve and it works great. It was really easy I watched him do it and could of done it myself if I did not have a friend that could do it.

I just followed the instructions provided, after taking a long look as to whether it really applied to our dryer. Just take your time and install the unit as you removed it. We removed the unit by first removing gas line, then two screws on the side and it was out. Put on stopper, followed by switching out the orfice.

No heat or lost the heating cycle

Initially bought a few parts based on past experience without testing first....my mistake. After testing and purchasing the correct parts the dryer works fine. This is by far the best DIY web site I've ever used and recommend it highly. If you can follow online instructions, this is the way to go....it saves $$$ on service calls.

Turned off power and pulled power plug from the wall. Removed the two screws at the lint screen. Raised the top to by depressing the top spring clips. Removed the two 5/16" screws from front top. Removed wiring clips from front panel. Set the front aside while I removed the two broken panel clips. Installed the two new panel clips. reinstalled the front panel by placing the front panel above the sides. Opened the front panel door and supported the drum while allowing the front panel to slide down onto the new front panel clips. Reinstalled the wiring clip. reinstalled the two 5/16 screws. Turned the drum to ensure that the felt seals and drive belt weere installed properly. Lowered the top and reinstalled the two screws at lint screen. Reinstalled power plug and turned on power. No rattles or squeeks!!!

Very easy replacing these 2 parts. Simply unscrew the 2 screws under the lint trap on top and pry open the front top of the dryer (it'll open like a hood on a car). Then just unscrew the 2 screw holding the switch on by opening the dryer door and unscrewing on the switch- unplug the old switch. Installation reverse of removal! For the light, just 1 screw takes the pate off and screw the light in like a night light bulb-- EASY!

pull out lint screen, removed 2 screws. lifted top up. removed 2 screws from the front,disconnected wiring harness. removed the drum and belt. located and removed the igniter, sensor, and coil valves. replaced all with new parts. reassembled. now it heats up. i believe that i only needed the coil valves. coil valves not shown on parts list, i purchased later. everything was very accessible with the drum removed.

Our dryer would not ignite, so I figured it was the radiant flame sensor. Well, I out that in and still nothing. I found out that the Tube Burner was also burned off on the flame end, by the igniter. I also ordered that part. installed it, and it works beautifully.

On the Amana dryer, I had to remove the top panel. then the front panel to access the burner assembly. I also had to remove the gas pipe coming to the burner, because I replaced the tube burner assembly at the same time. There is only one screw that holds that back end of that gas pipe. The thermal flame sensor is on the left side of the burning chamber, with only one small Phillips head screw. just remove the 2 wires, keeping track of which terminal they belong. Just twist the sensor out of the small slot, and out it comes. The tube burner assembly is fastened with 2 screws. The entire burner assembly comes out in one piece, but be real careful not to bang the igniter when removing it. The coil assembly has 2 wires, which you cannot get wrong, because one has 2 prongs, the other has 3 wires.The local repair shop wanted 90 bucks per hour, plus parts, and I installed both the burner tube and radiant flame sensor for around $80.

Flame when out to fast. Dryer did not get hot enough.

Unplugged electrical cord to dryer. removed the front cover 2 screws on the bottom. Lifted front cover off. Unplugged the 2 wires going to the old flame sensor. Used nut driver to remove 1 screw holding the flame sensor in. Removed old sensor replaced with new one. Reattached the 2 wires back on to the new flame sensor. Tested. Flame stayed on longer! Dryer works great dryer is 20 years old and still running like new now. Part was the exact match I needed.
