Dryer won't stay hot, gas smell
Pulled unit out from wall to access back panel. Top needs to be removed to get to the screws that hold on the front panel and door. These need to be removed to get to the valve and burner.
Once your in, the sensor, thermostat, and igniter are right up front. Sensor and thermostat were easy, the igniter breaks very easily...how do I know? Cause I broke the one I bought and had to get a new one.
I also replaced the coil set for the gas valve, because I had read that they can go bad and cause a gas fume smell. The coils are cheap, so you may as well as do them at the same time.
Anyway, once the repair was complete, I reassembled the unit and hooked up the vent.
Runs like new, and the clothes dry quickly.
