Unplugged the dryer from the wall. Removed the front lower cover. Removed the two screws for the bracket that holds down the coils. Unplugged the coils and swapped them out. Reassembled everything in reverse order. Plugged the dryer back in and started it. It's as good as new.

The hardest part is figuring out how to get the unit open. You have to take out the brackets that appear to hold on the timer section and you have to remove the screws under the lint filter. Once you have the top off then you remove the screws that hold the front panel on from the inside. I decided not to remove the drum it seemed like a lot of hassle, instead I went down and got a right angle screwdriver, the terminal valves are in the front of the unit and you only have to remove 2 screws to remove the retainer which holds them both in place. The drum is in the way so you can't use a regular screwdriver and the right angle is a bit slow going but I think it is actually faster than removing and replacing the drum for a novice like myself. Replacing the coils took about 2 minutes and then reassembly another half hour. But the Dryer works great again and for $70 it was well worth it.

burner wouldn't relight after 1st or 2nd heat cycle; in other words heat faded out; solenoids measured correct resistance, but would not open the valves once they heated up

My suggestion is to read all of the items that may result in no heat, or insufficient heat, you will find your problem in one of the reply's and the right part to replace. The repair was made much easier, as I installed a Maintenance kit at the same time. Drum rollers, drive belts and tensioner. With the drum out, the coil retaining clip was a LOT easier to re-instal. If the drum isn't out, you can lift the drum up a little and squeeze a stubby screw driver in to loosen the retaining screws. You have to use the proper size screwdriver so you don't strip the screws, and maybe a pair of gas pliers around the handle of the screwdriver to give it a little torque to help loosen the screws, while keeping downward pressure on the screwdriver.

The dryer does not heat

I just knew it had to be the heat sensor unable to activate the actual ignition. I following the directions and video for the installation of the heat sensor #PS344761. It went very smoothly. Upon completion of the installation, the click, then the flame roared to life and I felt like a real do-it-selfer!! This was short lived. The wetness of the clothes had no effect. Something I did not do and I certainly know better was to check and see what was taking place before I replaced the "damaged" sensor. No, I was just so sure there was no need of that. You say, put the old back in and watch what happens....I recycled the old one immediately. Sigh! We have had two weeks of rain and I'm really tired of damp clothes everywhere. I will read other alternatives and report back. DClark, TX

Replaced the flame sensor since it was believed to be the problem contributing to the lack of flame in this gas dryer. However, this part did not correct the problem.

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.

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.

Lifted top off dryer using a putty knife to release it. Took off front door using a nutdriver, disconnected door switch. Put door to side and reconnected switch. Dryer would turn on but the igniter would not come on. Disconnected gas valve assembly from gas line. One bolt holds the igniter assembly and gas valve. Took out whole assembly and replaced the igniter. Old igniter had a hairline crack. Put it all back together and Works like a charm. Also cleaned out tons of lint from interior.

Dryer time is very long. Lint not collecting.

I removed the old door seal and installed the new one algining the slots with the inserts and the seals. Old filter out, new filter in. Install was successful but dryer still not drying even though it's producing heat. I guess I will need a replacement.
