The first thing to do is to remove the plastic plug on the lower left front corner of the dryer. it is just a small square plastic piece. This way you can see if the ignitor is glowing red. But to answer your question, You remove the 2 screws underneth the lint filter. Then the top will just pop up with a screwdriver. Then there is 2 5/16 screws holding the front on. (this is for the most common kenmore. If this sounds all wrong i will tell how the other model comes upart.

Need to convert from natural gas to propane


Take 3 screws out of bottom side of Z shaped metal part on the back of the dryer's top. Stand in front of dryer and use the palms of your hands to sharply push dryer top back about 2 inches and lift top off. Open door and remove screw at 4 and 8 O'Clock position. Remove control panel (ususally 2 screws and a bunch on retaining plastic parts along the top side) and set on top of dryer or unplug electrical plugs and set aside. Remove screws at top of front panel. Unplug light bulb and door switch. Tilt front panel forward and lift off bottom tabs, then unplug moisure sensor wire at bottom, allowing front panel to be set aside. Remove 4 screws at sides of drum support assembly, lift up and off. Release belt, and remove drum. (easier to do if flat metal part originally right behind control panel is removed first) Use belt as a handle and lift drum out of dryer, allowing access to burner assembly. Change burner orfice and regulator blocker. Re-assemble and test.

I have a gas dryer that the igniter plug glows, but does not light the gas. One time when I had the front panel off the gas ignited and the dryer heated, but only burned for a minute then shut off. Now I...


with front off it will short cycle. If ignitor glows and then goes out without lighting, you have bad burner coils. The 2 black round things on burner assembly. Unplug unit then unplug coils and remove bracket with 2 screws. install coils and test.

How do you replace ignitor on maytag mdg2300 dryer


The igniter can be accessed for replacement through the front of the dryer by removing the front panel. Once the front panel is removed, unplug the igniter from the gas valve assembly then remove the screws securing it to the burner assembly. Secure the new igniter in place then plug it to the gas valve assembly. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock. Take extra care in handling the igniter to avoid breaking it into pieces due to its fragility.

The front panel can be removed by removing the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer. Follow these steps in reverse order when reinstalling the front panel.

My dryer is 14 years old and is now leaving dark lines on my clothes. The vent inside the dryer has a dark color around it.What could this be?


If the dryer is gas this could be caused by a restricted burner assembly causing the burner to be yellow and create soot. You will need to pull the bottom front panel off and inspect the burner flame. If there is not bottom front removable panel or burner inspection cap then you will need to remove the back panel on the dryer. The burner chould look blue(not yellow and soft). If you find the burner yellow you will need to clean out the compartment of lint then use compressed air to cler the burner assembly. After you have done this check the burner flame and m,ake sure it is blue. If it is you have fixed the problem.

Dryer doesnt blow hot air.


I find that quite often the ignitor is out of alignment or the glass window is covered with lint.
a gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes.
There are two common styles of ignitors, glow ignitors and spark ignitors. The ignitor ignites the gas either by heating up and glowing, or by sparking. If the ignitor fails, the dryer will not heat.

The easiest way to check the ignitor is to observe it. Remove the small access panel in front, select a high temperature setting and start the dryer. Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow or spark. If you see it glow or spark, then the ignitor is working.

The drier is working but there is no heat. This occured about a month ago and the service man came out, replaced the filter (which was worn down partly due to using drier sheets) and unclogged the vent...


hi..

Open the burner access door and then turn the dryer on. Watch inside the burner compartment for the glow coil to light up and glow. If all the controls are set correctly on the front control panel and the dryer is running, but the glow coil fails to glow, you've located the defective part. The glow coil will need to be replaced.
To remove the coil, turn off the gas first. Unplug the dryer from the electrical wall plug. Then remove the entire gas valve as an assembly. The nut on the gas valve to remove it from the gas supply pipe turns counter clockwise. There will be small sheet metal screws used to secure the plate to which the burner assembly parts are attached. The plate holds the entire assembly and is attached to the bottom of the dryer's cabinet.
Next, remove the glow coil from the burner assembly. Take the entire assembled part to the local appliance retail parts store for a replacement coil. Glow igniters are fragile and they break easily. Handle and install the new igniter carefully. Glow igniters are a non-returnable and non-refundable electric component.
Be advised that some new replacement igniters do not come with quick disconnect ends. In this case, it is OK to cut off the quick, disconnect from the old igniter and attach it to the new igniter. Simply clip off the wires several inches above, disconnect the old igniter, attach to the wires of the new igniter, and wire nut the two ends together. Repeat the process to attach the other set of wires and wire nut them together. There is no positive nor negative polarity to be concerned with.

No heat


there's no fuses on the unit. the cord connects to the control panel, the motor and the gas controller. you may need to remove the door and some screws holding the front panel in place. the panel will come forward and there may be some wires to disconnect for the light. the panel bottom has two tangs and notches they fit into. on the right bottom is the burner - check to see if anything is loose in the burner tube. maybe there's some loose change inside the drum or the blower housing. check the klixon thermostats on the burner and blower housing. the flame sensor may be loose
