Question about Dryers
No heat is being produced by the dryer. I have fixed thois problem previously by replacing the ceramic glow igniter, but that was many years ago. I would like help with directions how I get access to the igniter in the dryer to replace it. Please include instructions how to open the cabinet and location of the igniter.

Hi, UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two
screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in
the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and
remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front
should lift off. You will see the ignitor attached to the burner. There is a harness you can unplug to test it. If the dryer is not heating at all, before you remove the front panel, you can remove the cap on the front lower panel and start the dryer. Look inside the holw and see if the ignitor glows at all.
If it glows and then shut down before the flame lights, you will need to change the coils on top the gas valve, not the ignitor.
If the ignitor does not glow at all, you will want to test the thermo fuse before the ignitor.
Normal 0 UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it. I know this is a lot of info but these are most common problems.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

The ignition coils located on the gas valve or the flame sensor located on the burner assembly is the problem. Both inexpensive repairs.

I have the same model of dryer and the same problem and no experience in fixing any appliances. I took a few screws off the top and the front, opened the dryer by rotating it forward, and found a red button (a fuse or breaker?) close to what I figured would be the heat sink. Pressed the button, it clicked, and decided to put it all back together. First load worked fine, hopefully that was all it needed. Good luck and hope this is all you have to do too.
