Dryer did not put out heat the dryer worked other than no heat.

Unplug the dryer first. The igniter was located behind the front panel. On My gas dryer I had to remove 2 screws locacted by the lint screen to lift the top up then 2 screws were removed to lift and remove front panel. Note carefully disconect safety switch wire connecter first. After that there is 1 wire connecter and 2 screws to remove and replace ignitor. Note My ignitor was not bad just old. The thermal fuse on this model requires a little work to replace it. The back panel has to be removed. At least 9 screws hold it on and the vent hose is attached inside of the panel with a hose clamp. Once all that is clear all that remains is to unplug wires and remove 1 screw to replace thermal fuse. Note fuse failed because of lint droping from lint screen to the fan then geting stuck on the fuse screw to overheat and burn out fuse. I vacumed out all lint and dust front to back and also removed the fan cover to clean fan out There was alot of lint packed behind the cover. Then carefully assemble the fan cover - vent tube and back cover. Note this dryer has run for 16 years with no cleaning at all other than lint screen after drying clothes and no other problems so far.

No heat

It was very simple, I followed the instructions from your video. It also gave me the opportunity to vac out the unit which had not been done for some time. I plan on changing the igniter at a future date, making things new in that area. To be able to do it myself saved me a lot of money.

No heat from gas clothes dryer

Symptoms: No heat from clothes dryer. It would run continuously, and the dryer burner would not light. A little reading and I found out the timer doesn't start until heat is detected. That's why it will run forever without heat.
Ordered a Thermal Fuse, Cycling Thermostat, and Igniter Kit. Turns out it was the thermal fuse. Confirmed with my multimeter continuity check. No idea why it went, it was only 13 years old. No clogs in dyer vent but cleaned it to be sure. Possibly the thermostat was going a bit high over time, so I replaced it too. Only need to remove the back panel to replace these. Dryer works great now. 1 week later the washer broke, so I'll be ordering more parts.
