Had to lift the top and take the face of the dryer off. Then took the tumbler out and the blower wheel apart. This was all very easy I replaced the belt and cylinder seal since I had it all apart my dryer is about 8 years old so I only want to do this one time. I put it all back pluged it in and the dryer works just like the day we bought it. So for under 80.00 our dryer is fixed. I will use this site again if I need anything I love the diagrams I knew for sure I was ordering the right part.

I UNPLUGGED DRYER AND REMOVED FRONT OF LOWER DRYER UNIT. USED FLASHLIGHT AND INSPECTED. I FOUND BELT AND PULLEY WERE BROKEN. USING A PAIR OF CHANNEL LOCKS I REMOVED THE BROKEN PULLEY. (PULLEY HAS A LEFT HAND THREAD, SO I TURNED IT CLOCKWISE TO REMOVE IT. I CHECKED THIS WEBSITE AND FOUND THE PARTS. THE PULLEY HAS BEEN REDESIGNED AND LOOKED DIFFERENT. I ORDERED THE PARTS AND WAITED 2 DAYS FOR THE PARTS TO ARRIVE. I TURNED THE PULLEY ONTO THE THREADS COUNTER CLOCKWISE AS HARD AS I COULD BY HAND (DON'T OVER TIGHTEN THIS PULLEY, IT WILL BREAK EASILY) I SLID THE BELT OVER THE DRUM AND AROUND PULLEY (MAKING SURE THE BELT WAS LINED UP IN THE SAME LOCATION AROUND DRUM) AND LIFTED TENSIONER INTO PLACE. INSTRUCTIONS COME WITH BELT FOR BELT REPLACEMENT. I RE INSTALLED FRONT AND TESTED, OK.

I followed the instructions supplied with the belt. I've changed the belt before so was familiar with the repair. The toe panel clips for my model had changed so what was supplied was different than the originals. Although they, too, came with instructions, they did not fit my appliance. They were inexpensive so I scrapped them and used some self-adhesive Velcro fasteners I had in a junk box.

Remove the two screws holding the door and lift straight up. Remove the two screws on oppostie side. Face can now be removed by pulling straight out at the top, then lifting face up off of tabs at the bottom. The two coils are at the bottom, held in by a retaining bracket.

The dryer belt was delivered promply, afterwards I lifted the top of the dryer and unscrewed the front panel, so it would lower. Then I watch a 5 minute video and it clearly demonstrated how to install the belt. This was my first time, so it took about 30 minutes.

PartSelect sent the exact right part, and very quickly! YouTube showed me how to install it. The only hard part was the bulkiness of the drum, which is why I marked "a bit difficult" for the repair.

The ignitor would lite, but no gas from the valve, then ignitor would shut off

It was a fairly simple repair to perform with the dryer in place. I simply opened the bottom/front access panel to start, the door removes if you pull up after opening. Then I disconnected the two and three wire connector to the two coils. Next I removed the bracket screws that fasten the coils to the valve assembly. This was a little difficult with the screw closest, because of the small clearance and #1 sized phillips(stubby would work well.) The rear screw I managed to remove by using both a small flathead screwdriver(hex shaped shaft) and an adjustable cresent wrench. At this point, it was a simple matter of installing the new coils and the bracket, and then reconnecting the two plugs. It almost made me want to do laundry.

It woud begin to heat and dry clothes then it would stop heating before the clothe dried.

Parts Select said 27% chance it was the coils and 26% chance it was moisture sensor. I ordered the coils and it did not fix the problem, my luck. I have now ordered moisture sensor and the next possible part, the cycling thermostat. If one of these solve the problem I will still have much less invested than a repairman would charge.

The blower wheel came apart and was rubbing on the housing.

I unplugged the dryer. Lifted the top, removed the two screws to the front and popped the shut off switch out of it's clip. Then removed the housing front. Getting the old hub off was not that hard but getting the new one on was a pain. I filed the motor shaft to get the rust and any burrs off. Then I had to fit the new wheel to the shaft. I used my pocket knife to open the hole in the wheel. After I got the clamp and clip on reassembly went pretty quick. I hope this is enough detail.
