Dryer wouldn't heat

First I unplugged the dryer. I shut off the gas line to the dryer. I opened the access door on the lower front of the dryer. I illuminated the interior of the dryer with a small flashlight that was mounted on two legs with magnets on the end to allow the light to be specifically directed. I took few digital pictures of the electrical connections to the dryer gas valve and the various sensors attached to the unit. I shut off the gas line valve to which the dryer gas valve was attached. I removed the two screws holding the dryer gas valve an lifted the unit out of the dryer. I vacuumed the inside of the dryer with an electric vacuum and also vacuumed the lint and dust off the gas valve I took out of the dryer. The flat style igniter was mounted on the front of the gas value. I removed two screws and took off the old flat style igniter. I reattached the new flat style igniter (carefully holding it by the ceramic mounting area to avoid breaking the igniter itself). I reinserted the gas valve into the dryer and reattached the two screws holding the gas valve into the dryer. I reattached the gas valve to the gas line in the dryer. I reattached the electrical connectors to the gas line and the sensors in the dryer. I turned the gas line in the house to the dryer back on. I plugged in the dryer and started it. No ignition.! I unplugged the dryer and reached in through the access door. I angled the flashlight to each of the sensors attached to the gas valve and the dryer electrical harness and pushed each one to make sure the electrical contacts were solid. When I checked the flame sensor ( a little box with a window mounted over a rectangle cut in the wall of the cylinder in which the flame burns when the gas is shooting out of the valve) the lower wire was unattached to the sensor. (Because the sensor sits on the side of the cylinder pointing towards the interior of the dryer its connections at the sensor was not visible. I bought a new flame sensor. I detached the old flame sensor from its connector, removed the screw mounting it to the cylinder and lifted it out of the tab holding it to the cylinder. I installed the new flame sensor by putting its tab in the slot for the tab in the cylinder and reattached the screw holding the flame sensor to the cylinder. I reconnected the electrical connection from the flame sensor to the dryer electrical harness. I plugged in the dryer. I turned the dryer on and got ignition of the dryer heater flame. Repair complete!

Thank you for sending the part so quickly

AS it turned out the problem was not the igniter but the timer of which we figured out how to force it to work but now we will be ordering the part from your great company.
Thanks for everything.

CustomerLawrence from Billerica MA

No heat - gas didn't ignite.

Replaced igniter, then the two coils on the gas valve. I'm not sure which actually fixed the problem as I was not testing the repair correctly. I needed to attempt to dry an actual load of wet clothes.

Customermichael from dunnigan CA

Dryer not heating

I removed the front cover by first detaching the door which allowed me to pivot the front cover off the locating legs at the bottom of the dryer. It was then easy access to the igniter assembly which you simply unplug & remove attached to the tube which channels the flame from the burner assembly to the rear of the dryer. Unbolt old one, install new one, reassemble. The one extremely important factor in this repair, other than first unplugging the dryer, is be aware the igniter assembly is very fragile, so use great caution to not drop it or hit it against any other object while installing.

Clothes dryer was not heating up to dry the clothes.

First I unplugged the dryer, and removed the front panel. Then I plugged it back in and had my wife push the start button while I watched. I noticed nothing lighting up. I then went on your website and typed in the model number. I saw what the igniter looked like, and ordered it. When it came I replaced it, and probably saved a couple hundred dollars by doing it myself. Thanks PartSelect.

CustomerBrandon from Tualatin OR

Dryer would not heat.

First I removed the screws holding the front of the dryer and the door in place, then removed the front panel. Next, I simply located where the old igniter had been mounted, mounted the new one on the bracket, tightened it up, and re-attached everything.

For the first time I had ever delved into the guts of a home appliance, this was a remarkably easy repair. 15, 20 minutes tops, and that's accounting for the time spent finding all the necessary screws and mounting points with no guidance.

Dryer would spin with no heat

Typical problem listed on this site. My dryer would spin but there is no heat to dry the load. Simple repair. Remove door and front panel with 4 screws. Check continuity of igniter with my $6.00 voltage meter to determine it is defective. Removal of defective part is straight forward. Unplug wire and loosen screw holding it in place. *** one note... igniter is very fragile. Handle it by the white part only. I noticed that others needed to replace certain solenoids as well. Didn't happen in my case. Next weekend... changing the bearing for the matching washer.

The unit would not fire up-no burner action

I first removed the dryer door with 2 screws holding it and the 2 screws on the oposite side of the doors , then removed the front of the dryer to access the burner under the drum. I unplugged the igniter, removed the igniter with 1/4 inch socket and replaced it with the new unit. That was it!

Igniter failed

Plug & Play

Just that easy, now the cleanup on a 10 year old dryer took a little longer. Lots of dust and lint. But having a like new dryer for the price of a $25.00 part is well worth it.

Dryer not heating up

Using your site to review interior parts and similar problems, I determined the issue was one of 3 parts, the igniter, the gas coil or the heating drum. The igniter information was the most consistent since I had NO heat. My plan was to start with the igniter replacement and continue from see what happened. I disconnected the electric, (no need to shut off gas), removed the front panel of the dryer, and replaced the igniter. It took 5 minutes. NOTE that the filament part of the igniter is fragile and must be handled with care. It can break and fall away with little pressure. I learned that the hard way.

Igniter quit working

Remove the front panel of the dryer using appropriate tools. Unplug wires to light. Take care to remember how it was dissemble. A good time to remove the vent catcher and clean it out. Remove the one screw on the igniter and replace igniter. Test to make sure it is working before putting the front panel back on.
