Question about Dryers
I'm not familiar with your particular combo, however I am versed when it comes to dryers and they all work pretty much the same, but with only slight variations, the problem that you describe sounds like a defective element. As far as getting to it, I don't have a manual, but do a lot of repairs without one. Locate your element and see if it is burned, or broken. One thing is sure, it is not heating up. Good Luck. I hope you find this very helpful!

if it's not heating then your thermostats are bad. The most likely cause is that either your vent is clogged (just disconnect the vent to check and see if this fixes the problem). If it doesn't fix the problem, which it probably won't then it means that your dryer gas coils are wearing out. Here are what the dryer coils look like and a place and part number so that you can purchase them if you like.
If the coils are bad it will heat slightly in the beginning of the cycle and it will slowly open less and less and eventually won't heat anymore. The igniter will still glow and turn on and off but the gas will stop releasing. The gas coils are located in the front of the machine on the base attached tot he burner assembly.
when the unit is running the igniter will come on and off.
take the top off, then you take the front panel off. The gas valve assembly is located in the front bottom of the dryer under the drum .
