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.
I checked the sensor and other components for continuity and found they all worked ok. I check the Igniter and found no continuity or resistance. That was the problem. Installation was easy. One screw and a two wire plug.
my husband took the old igniter out and put the new one in and it was fix. your websit was very easy and very resonable price. thank for your help
Removed the front cover of the dryer. Unpluged the igniter and then removed srcrew and replaced with new igniter.
Removed the front of dryer and replaced igniter, old igniter was in bad shape, but it did not fix problem. Looks as if I need to replace gas valve assembly also.
It took me about 20 minutes to figure out how to remove the front cover, and 10 minutes to remove and replace the ignitor. Works like a charm. Saved me lots of money. $$$$$$$$$. Thanks for the information.
ordered and replaced igniter. problem fixed
