No heat in the dryer at our Summer Cabin in Manila Utah

There was no heat, the dryer worked in all respects but the flame did not come on to dry the clothes. I suspected the ignighter so I disconected the wire leading to the ignighter and tested the electrical connection with a regular tester used for testing 120 v AC circuits in a normal residential house outlet. I turned the dryer on and used the tester on the incoming electrical line that I disconnected from the ignighter there was power so I determined that the trouble was with the ignighter,it took about ten minutes to replace the ignighter after I received the part from Partselect. The Dryer worked fine with the new part. a fairly simple job to take the burner out and install the ignighter.

no instructions or videos were of this particular unit but the parts appeared to be quite similar across all dryers. Could not find all parts described as potential fails, but found the ignitor to have no continuity. Also replaced ignition coils as they have a high probability of failure. Cleaned everything as well as possible and put dryer back together in reverse of disassembly.

Unplugged dryer power. Pry up the upper cover using a puttyknife along the front left an right corners. Lift cover up and out of the way. Removed the front panel by removing two philips screws, located inside the drum area and pry panel away from unit. Besure to unplug the wires to the door switch before removing the front panel. Know the Drum is exposed. Undo the drum drive belt by reaching in under the drum and pushing the spring loaded idler pulley to the left and remove the belt from the drive motor shaft. Lift the drum straight up, this removes the drum from the rear support bearging. slide the drum out of the unit. Remove rear drum support bearing. and install new brg., being careful not to loose the small ball brearing (thrust Brg.), this proceedure requires two people. Lubricate the support Brg. with a HIGH temp grease. Place new belt on drum and install drum and drive belt reversing the proceedure. Remove old Drum glide and sand paper the old adhesive. Apply adhesive provided liberally to both surfaces, allow adhesive to cure for 10 to 15 min. Allign Drum glide and press and hold in place. Allow adhesive to dry for 2-3 hrs. before installing front panel. Install panel, plugin door wiring close cover. Your Back In Business.....

Drum stopped spinning with any kind of load

I suspected a worn belt and that's what it was. I watched 2 videos on belt replacement and it was not a hard fix. The only "problems" I could foresee would be moving the drum around if you are not that strong. Its not terribly heavy, just a little awkward. I also sliced the top of my hand a little on the underside of the cabinet when moving the drum. Being a little more careful that wouldn't have happened. Part plus shipping was less then $20, and we now have a great working dryer again. I also got a zap when I forgot I had plugged it back in and was putting the inside screws back and the screwdriver crossed some wires. Nothing bad, just a quick jolt. Remember to unplug it until you're all done!

Clothes were getting stuck between machine body and drying drum, also there was a squeeking and a noise that sounded as if something was clanking around, like a coin.

I watched the great easy to follow video from PartSelect. Absolutely nothing unclear. I was able to open the top and disconnect the front panel in less than 10 minutes! Removed the old felt drum glide, scraped off any stuck felt and loose glue. Then glued the new pad in place, using 3 small clamps, like clothes pins. Let it set for about 15 minutes then put it all back together! I did forget to reattach the ground wire, so I had to open the lid back up for that. About 50 minutes total. Also I took the opportunity of having the front panel off to give the inside a good vacuuming, not a ton of lint but enough to go ahead and clean it out! Thanks for the help!

Removed the panel between the dryer and washer. The gas valve was right in front. The wires were in a plug and easy to remove from old part. The solinoid held in place by a clamp with two screws.

Dryer not heating up consistently

My dryer was heating up very briefly blowing hot air initially then cool. I have a stacking washer/dryer set (2002). I initially turned off the gas valve at the wall, ran the dry for several minutes to clear the gas line, then unplugged the power. I was then able to pop the top using a flathead screw driver, securely prop it open, unhook the wiring harness to the front panel, unscrew the two front panel screws, and remove the entire front without having to unstack the units. From there, you remove the two screws holding the bracket over the coils (2 of them), remove the electrical connectors attached to both coils and replaced them with the new ones. I then replaced all brackets, screws, and such (you'll need to lift the drum when putting the front back on and make sure it is lined up), plugged it back into power and turned on the gas to test the unit which worked perfectly. The 62% of the time seems to be an accurate figure as nothing else had to be done to the unit. Pretty easy stuff...good luck.
