SOURCE: Remove front of Dryer
go to appliancejunk.com and you can download the service manual. also make sure you don't move the set nut on the change screw.when you turn it in it take a little muscle. stubby screwdrivers are a must. we also removed the tube(2 scews)that was in the way of the oriface.if i had to do it again i could do it again it would be a snap

I would like to thank the ones who responded to giving me a 'hand' in repairing my dryer. I did like you said & changed out the coils & now the dryer is working like it should.

Disconnect power. Turn off gas.
Open the door and look along the front upper edge of the door opening. In the top left and right rounded corner of the door opening you will see screws going upward into the top. Remove both screw and raise the top.
Look down inside the open top dryer from above on each left and right edge there will be a screw holding the front assembly to the case of the dryer. Remove 1 on each side.
The dryer front can now be pulled toward you about 3 inches at the top and then lifted off the bottom clips and swung away to the right from the case. Be careful not to strain any wires connected between the case and the front.
This will expose the underside of the dryer along with motor, Gas valve and venting for checking and vacuuming. Be careful of the ignitor. It is very brittle and can be easily broken
Gas service should should be done by professionals only as improper servicing can cause fires, explosion or death from asphyxiation. TEST for leaks after reassembling gas parts.
Perform thorough vacuuming and reverse the above process for reassembly. Good Luck

Testimonial: "Thank you...looks like great instructions. I'll try it."
The gas coils on the gas valve have gone bad. These are located on the gas valve and will be 2 solenoids. Replace them both and should be able to get as a set. 12001349 should be the number and cost less than 60.00 for the set. Good luck and thank you for using Fix Ya.

More and more, you have to change the gas valve AND the orifice due to the liability issue of changing only the orifice and not doing a complete conversion. If, and this might be a big if, a conversion kit is available, you will need the model # of your dryer to order it. The kit will come with a spring and a tension nut for the gas valve and the orifice you need. Instructions will come with the kit. Follow them to the letter. An improperly installed conversion kit, or just changing the orifice, can be very dangerous. LP operates at a higher pressure than the natural gas the dryer was built to use, and an improper conversion presents a significant fire hazard.
