First I removed the two screws that hold the front access panel. After taking an ohm reading on the coil I found it was an open coil. I went on line to find out where to get the part. PartSelect web site was very complete when I enter the part number. I was able to make the purchase on line. The part was stock and it arrived in 3 days without any special handling. I then unplugged the solenoid, removed the two screws that hold the coils on. Replaced coil and bracket .Tested the dryer and it was working properly. Installed the front panel. PROJECT COMPLETE!!
I took the front of the dryer off. The two gas valve coils were right in front. Replaced the two terminal gas valve coil and the secondary coil valve three terminal. Cleaned the inside with shop vac and re-installed the front dryer panel.
I took the front dryer panel off by removing 4 screws. I the removed 2 screws from the bracker that secured the 2 valve coils. I unplugged the 2 coils the placed new ones in the exact same position. Fastened the valve coil bracket and replaced the front dryer panel. The dryer worked like new. Thanks!!!
MY issue was the heat would cycle up on a fully cold dryer, but if the Dryer stopped for whatever reason or started a sucessive new load, you'd get no heat. I could leave the dryer unplugged for 30 minutes and it would fire back up with heat but would go out shortly, or if lucky might finsh the load.Most of the repair avenues point towards the cycling thermostat or the flame sensor.But It was the gas Coils.It's Been perfect for couple weeks.Great Site

Unscrewed the front and ran the dryer. The heating coil DID get red hot but the gas DID NOT blow out. Unscrewed the cover over the top of the two coils. Disconected the wire. Replaced coil and cover. SUPER EASY. Its the starting and holding coil which lets the gas shoot out onto the heating filament. $75.00 just for the repair man to come out plus parts, plus labor. Probably saved $200+. All the prints of the parts are on the website so you can see what your changing. TRUST ME....DO IT YOURSELF. You'll be glad you did!!
The first thing to do is to check to be sure the vent is clear. The easiest way to see if this is the problem is to pull the dryed away from the vent and let it vent into the room. Once you have determined that the vent is not the issue, take the front cover off and see what is going on on the inside. To remove the front cover first remove the 4 screws on the inside of the upper cabinet to take off the control panel, I was able to gain access to the screws under the front of the control panel that hold the front cover in place. A couple of electrical connectors later the cover is removed. The coils are easily accessed from in front of the burner by removing the 2 screws that hold the small silver cover over the coil. Once the cover is removed, the coils slide off a short shaft and you can replace the coil by swapping the apporpriate electrical connector for the coil being replaced. The coils are alligned with a small white pin so you can't get it wrong. Replace the covers and fire away. This repair is easy and saves you a lot of money. This is a great web site, easy to identify the parts you need and the delivery is very fast. Nice Job!!!
The diagrams listed online gave me a the information needed to trouble-shoot which part could be broken. It only took two tries to see which part was out but was significantly cheaper than a repairman. The expediant delivery on parts made down-time a minimal. Very pleased with results.
I first confirmed that the ingitor was working (because I could see it glow with the lights off at the bottom of dryer). I read within Parts Select that intermittent heating was likely the coils and that I could test their resistance to confirm that this was the problem. I removed the coils (very easy) and thenI checked their resistance with a tester. The resistance on one of them was reading 600 ohms instead of the required 1300 ohms. So I replaced them both and presto it works fine. I also took the opportunity to thoroughly clean out the lint (accessible with the front panel removed) and I replaced the lint filter which was ripped and the gasket around the door which was missing a piece. All very easy to do and parts select made it a cinch. For safety I made sure that the gas and electric were off before I did any of this work. oh, I also levelled the foot which made my wife happy.
I read previous posts and figured that the Thermal Fuse, Cycling Thermostat, Secondary Coil Gas Valve, and Two Terminal Coil Gas Valve added up to about 74% probability for fixing the problem. Well, bingo!! Problem solved replacing the above parts. Didn't want to waste time starting with the cheapest thing and then moving on. With a family of five we need laundry capacity almost daily.Took barely more than 1 hr. to take it apart and replace the parts and put back together. The instructional video made all the difference in the world. Very very easy. The trickiest part was the clamp holding down the two coils on the gas valve. There was limited space to get the screwdriver on the screws due to the drum being in the way. Put a screwdriver bit from my cordless screwgun in a socket and was able to get the job done. Thank you part select!!! Total repair was barely over $100 including shipping and did it on my own time without having to set up a time for a repair guy.
