Dryer was not heating

My boyfriend did the repair. He had no previous knowledge about repairing appliances. He broke the first igniter we purchased b/c he did not realize how fragile it was. But, after we got the new one everything went fine. The dryer works great!!

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.

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.

The ingniter broke

Had to remove the door and front panel which was four screws, took out one screw then unplugged the igniter then reversed the process to put back together. The whole job took about 5mins.

There was no heat in the dryer

removed the bottom panel from under the dryer(2 screws). you can see the igniter next to the burner. used a sock wrench to loosen the screw holding the igniter. not easy to get in there with big hands. removed the connector. had to wiggle it to get it loose. screwed new igniter in to place. be sure to use old screw, new one supplied was a little to long. plugged connector together. started dryer to see if was working correctly and it was. closed cover and was done. saved myself $129.00. thanks

Needed new igniter kit

Opened the door where igniter is located. Screwed the part onto where it belongs and connected the plugs. Closed the door. Viola!!! I did it myself. Me, a 61 year old lady. Go me.

Dryer was not heating

Open the front of the dryer. This was the most dificult part of the job, since I did not know her to begin. I found from internet only two scews on the bottom of the front holding panel were the front, and th fornt is hanged by two klips from the top, like hinges. Pulling form the bottom out was all I had to do. Changin the igniter kit was very easy.

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.

Dryer was running but not heating up

First I unplugged the dryer from the electric outlet. I unscrewed the 4 screws on the front cover. Then I disconnected igniter connection and unscrewed the one that held the unit place. I simply fastened the new igniter with the screw, reconnected the wire, put the cover back and plugged the dryer back into the electric outlet. Very simple indeed. Dryer heated right up, problem solved, no headaches. A plus score for partselect.com

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.

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.
