NOTE: Be very careful to not handle the igniter by its gray part as it's very fragile. Hold it by its white tip only.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First I found and watched three videos on how to open the dryer and replace the igniter.Then I opened the dryer, but I did not remove the belt as suggested in the video, and then I removed the ignitor and flame detecter as the videos had shown. I got on-line and ordered the new parts from PartsSelect in the afternoon and had them in my hands the next morning by 9:30 am.I installed the new parts and everything worked fine again. You must be very careful with the igniter to not touch it with hands or anything else. I practiced puting in the old parts first.

Removed lower front panel and then front including door (need to remove the top to access screws.) Replaced both the ingiter and heat detector. The tricky part was getting access to the long tunnel-like bracket that houses the igniter. Washer and Dryer are in a tight cutout space in very small laundry room.
