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.

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.
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
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.
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!
Unplugged igniter. Removed screw holding igniter. Replaced igniter and plugged in.
Plug & PlayJust 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.
replace igniter by unpuging and installing new
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.
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.
Took two screws off loser front of dryer. Removed screw that holds in igniter switch, disconnected the two leads. Replaced with new one and that was it, simple. Anyone can do this with little experience.
I checked to see if the fire of the gas dryer would start, but nothing. Changed the ignitor coil with kit, used the same socket screw, unplugged the cable and removed old ignitor. New one was placed in and reconnected and finished in less than 5 mins.
I removed the front panel from the dryer and observed that the glow plug was not getting hot when the dryer was turned on. I removed the glow plug and verified that power was present using an OHM meter. Power was present. I could also see a hairline crack in the glow plug. The new glow plug took about 2 minutes to install and immediately glows red when the dryer is turned on. Easy fix.
Per instruction found in the internet about the simptoms and recomended parts wich ussualy goes bad in that model I follow the intructions of a tecnitian to replace the igniter and the termal fuse.
I went to a repair website to see what some of the problems could be and tested for them. I checked the power starting at the circuit breaker box and went all the way to the igniter. I discovered that the igniter had a small break in it and determined that that was the cause for dryer heat not coming on.
