Removed the two screws fromt he lint track on the top of the dryer. Inserted putty knife between the top of the fromt panel and the dryer top and pushed in to release the two catches for the front panel. I rested the top panel against the wall to get it out of the way of the front panel . Next I removed the two nuts at the top of the front panel . Removed the electrical safety connector for the door using a very small screwdriver to release the catch. Pull up on the front panel to detach it from the bottom catches. I rested the drum on a couple of 2x4s to support it while the front panel was off. Locate the housing for the coils which is on the front of the dryer left side. Remove the cover fromt he coil housing by using a stubby phillips screwdriver and remove the top two screws. Remove the wiring connectors from each of the coils. Replace the coils being careful to align the coils with the "keys" in the housing cover. Reverse the process to complete the job taking care to ensure the felt around the drum does not bind.

This is a straightforward repair that you can do in an hour or less. Open the lint trap and remove the two screws. Use a screwdriver to pop up the top of the dryer. Remove two screws that attach the front panel. Now you can lift out the drum and then lift off the front panel. Clean out all the lint. Make sure the motor pulley turns smoothly. Tilt back the dryer diagonally to make the rest go easier. Loop the new belt around the drum (rubber side down) and reinstall the drum against the back wall of the dryer. Make sure the cloth liner fits perfectly around the ridge, with no folds so the drum rotates easily. Make sure the drum fits smoothly against the two rubber positioning wheels on the back wall. Position the new belt around the center of the drum. On the dryer floor, stand up the tensioner bracket. Tricky part -- thread the belt so it runs through the bracket and loops around the drive pulley on the motor, rubber side against the pulley. The belt should be tight, held by the tensioner. Reinstall the front panel so the opening aligns with the drum opening. Drop the top down, snap into place.and reattach the screws in the lint trap. Done!

not getting hot

Checked the resistor to confirm it was good. Removed the two screws that are accessible after you pull the lint screen out. Use puddy knife to release the two plastic clips that hold the top on. The top will pop up like car hood. You have to pull up on it with steady pressure. I used a plastic puddy knife to prevent scratching anything. Prop top up so it does not fall back down and strike your head or fingers. On each side inside the housing there is a sheet metal screw that holds the front of the dryer on. Before you remove them unplug the door switch wire. As you get these off you will notice that the whole front is loose and the drum looks like it will fall out. It may if you mess with it. Gently tip the front away from the dryer housing and drum assembly. After the front is out about 5 inches pull up and the bottom can be moved away out of the small hook clips. Set it aside. The burner assembly is on the lower left. The coils are there remove the sheet metal screws and lift it up. Remove them one at a time. Notice the small locate pin and position the coil in the same orientation assemble in reverse. The door is tricky to get back on. Don't forget to unplug before doing any work. This can be done without disconnecting the gas service.

The dual cil gas valves were out of resistance range. The new coils were easy to install with a screw driver, sockets set and multi-meter.I checked the coil resistance and one of the new coils were a little high, but I installed them and they have been working fine.

Loud rattling noise and very little heat in dryer

First I unplugged the dryer and shut off the gas. I popped the top loose at the front and raised it up on its rear hinges. I removed the two retaining screws near the top of the front panel, unclipped the door switch and removed the front panel. I rotated the drum by hand to cause it to rattle and noticed the blower impeller was barely turning. I then removed the panel in front of the blower and found part of the shaft that clamps to the motor shaft had broken off. This explained why no heat was reaching the dryer drum and why the ratttle was so bad and continued for a few seconds after I turned the dryer off. I removed the clamp and the retaining clip and the blower impeller and replaced all three parts with new ones. This is the second appliance I have repaired in the past month and I cannot believe how quickly I received the parts from PartSelect.com. In both cases replacement parts arrived within one day of ordering them and the operator was very helpful and patient helping me order the correct parts. NOTE: The original impeller had a round hole and was held in place on a "D" shaped motor drive shaft by a clamp and retaining clip. The new impeller had a "D" shaped hole and was very dificult to install on the shaft. Before reassembling all the panels on the dryer, I made sure the impeller was on straight and turned freely without striking any panels. I also spent a considerable effort cleaning a huge amount of lint and dust out of the dryer. My dryer now works perfectly and quitely. It is nice to have it back.

Disconnect power source remove front panel, lift drum off mounts, push old belt off the rear of the drum and remove drum from dryer cabinet. release tension on idler ass. and remove assembly idler was wrong depth so I had to remove the wheel from new assembly and replace it on the old mount (not a big deal, easier than returning it for a replacement 5 min. job)don't forget to vacuum out all the lint that accumalates in dry cabinet ( big fire hazard if left in there) lay new belt over drum, sneak it pass all obsticles and route it around idler which is the hardest part because of limited room for arms and hands. Make sure drum is snapped back into the rear seal and spin by hand to check proper belt alignment. Replace front panel and run.

Stumbled across this websites video on how to open the dryer lid and replace 2 parts. Went and did it the same way and wala.. done. Before going wild and just unscrewing everthing take a moment to look over how everything is positioned it will help out later. I got a little confused on how to wedge the little fuse bracket back on, that took most of the 30min of the operation.

Dryer would not start

I'm a woman over 50 with little experience in appliance repair, but I didn't want to buy a new dryer. Landlord's Electrician ruled out house circuit. Viewed the expert videos. Opened top with putty knife, front with screw driver,cleaned out front lint areas then removed, tested and ruled out door switch and heater. Then removed the thermal switch, which tested to be dead. All parts were tough to remove, but saw fellow on video having trouble pulling off wires so it gave me confidence to use a little force and plyers. Since I knew if I didn't damage parts I could return them I gambled and spent under $30 to save my old dryer. It runs better than it has in years, so now I can save money on the electric bills and know how to maintain more than just the vent out. Thank you part select, because without the videos I would not have tried this by myself.
