Your website was very helpful in narrowing down and diaganosing the problem. A continuity tester verified an open solenoid. Ordered Sunday evening, parts arrived Tuesday. Ignition coils drop in place with a holddown bracket and one screw. Wiring harness is reattached. Front of dryer is put in place followed by the top. Plugged in the dryer (it is just commom sense to have the power off). Started dryer, of course it ran WITH heat. The end of the story is HAPPY WIFE, HAPPY LIFE. Happy to do business with you.

removed top removed the front slipped off old belt installed new belt replaced idler pulley assembly. removed 2 screws and replaced lint frame and screen. I would advise if you have an older dryer you open top, remove front and check ,out fan that is on other side of lint screen. my fan was so full of lint im surprised it didn't catch on fire. dryer was very noisy due to bearings being out on idler pulley assembly and built up lint in fan assembly. its works like new since I did repair. you can buy pulley assembly and belt for the same price as the lint screen and frame. less than $50 runs great.

No Heat In The Dryer At Our Summer Cabin In Manila Utah

There was no heat, the dryer worked in all respects but the flame did not come on to dry the clothes. I suspected the ignighter so I disconected the wire leading to the ignighter and tested the electrical connection with a regular tester used for testing 120 v ac circuits in a normal residential house outlet. I turned the dryer on and used the tester on the incoming electrical line that I disconnected from the ignighter there was power so I determined that the trouble was with the ignighter,it took about ten minutes to replace the ignighter after I received the part from partselect. The dryer worked fine with the new part. A fairly simple job to take the burner out and install the ignighter.

no instructions or videos were of this particular unit but the parts appeared to be quite similar across all dryers. Could not find all parts described as potential fails, but found the ignitor to have no continuity. Also replaced ignition coils as they have a high probability of failure. Cleaned everything as well as possible and put dryer back together in reverse of disassembly.

Unplugged dryer power. Pry up the upper cover using a puttyknife along the front left an right corners. Lift cover up and out of the way. Removed the front panel by removing two philips screws, located inside the drum area and pry panel away from unit. Besure to unplug the wires to the door switch before removing the front panel. Know the Drum is exposed. Undo the drum drive belt by reaching in under the drum and pushing the spring loaded idler pulley to the left and remove the belt from the drive motor shaft. Lift the drum straight up, this removes the drum from the rear support bearging. slide the drum out of the unit. Remove rear drum support bearing. and install new brg., being careful not to loose the small ball brearing (thrust Brg.), this proceedure requires two people. Lubricate the support Brg. with a HIGH temp grease. Place new belt on drum and install drum and drive belt reversing the proceedure. Remove old Drum glide and sand paper the old adhesive. Apply adhesive provided liberally to both surfaces, allow adhesive to cure for 10 to 15 min. Allign Drum glide and press and hold in place. Allow adhesive to dry for 2-3 hrs. before installing front panel. Install panel, plugin door wiring close cover. Your Back In Business.....

Drum stopped spinning with any kind of load

I suspected a worn belt and that's what it was. I watched 2 videos on belt replacement and it was not a hard fix. The only "problems" I could foresee would be moving the drum around if you are not that strong. Its not terribly heavy, just a little awkward. I also sliced the top of my hand a little on the underside of the cabinet when moving the drum. Being a little more careful that wouldn't have happened. Part plus shipping was less then $20, and we now have a great working dryer again. I also got a zap when I forgot I had plugged it back in and was putting the inside screws back and the screwdriver crossed some wires. Nothing bad, just a quick jolt. Remember to unplug it until you're all done!
