I removed the two screws on the front of the dryer and pulled out the bottom of the dryer front until the clips on the top came loose. Next I removed the two screws that hold the thermostat in place and then switched the wires from the old one to the new one. I did them one at a time to ensure that they didn't get mixed up. After that I reinstalled the thermostat and then replaced the front of the dryer. The timer now advances when it is in auto mode.

This is a gas dryer. I was able to access the thermostat through the small front access panel. Not easy to see but with a short nut driver I could take out the two screws. I was able to pull the thermostat to the front panel hole and switch the wires. Putting it back in was a challange since I had to do it by feel since I could not look and get my arm in at the same time. Suggest anyone that does this put a small piece of paper around the screw to hold it in the driver

Firts replaced a thermostate - did not fix the proble. ( had a glow from the starter but no flame.)

checked igniter sensor OK (got no resistance) so replaced the two coils that sit on top of the gas burner. With new coils noticed a much brighter glow from the igniter and the gas line opened up to produce a flame

Dryer has workd successfully for the last 5 loads.

Able to run dryer with the front removed by holding in the microswitch activated when door is closed.

Dryer would not run

I assumed it was an electrical issue, checked the circuit breaker, and power at the outlet and both were good. I then tested the start switch, which was also good. I did some reading and learned that the thermal fuses often are at fault when the dryer won't run. As it turns out there was a dead bird stuck in the exhaust, which had clogged up with lint and caused the thermal fuse to blow. I tested continuity and found none, so I knew the fuse was bad. Replacement was pretty straightforward, just remove the front panel, the wiring shield, and the front drum support. Two screws to remove the fuse. Installation is the reverse of removal. The dryer runs great now, and no more musty odor to the clothes,

The gas heat was inconsistent

I first change out a temperature sensor, but it didn't resolve the issue so I purchased a multi-meter (for $7 at Menard's) to test the electronic components and found the gas valve coils to be defective. I replaced them and it has worked perfectly since! Good Luck, you can do it too!
