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.

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.

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.

Dryer would not heat.

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.
