Use a putty knife to separate the smaller bottom panel from the upper front panel.
About 2 inches in from each side there is a spring clip. Press the spring clip with the putty knife while pulling out on the edges of the smaller lower panel. It hinges down once it is free from the clips.

How to remove the lower front panel on a two panel whirlpool dryer model number LG7801xsw2 gas dryer

Disconnect power then pry the lower access panel off with a flat-head screwdriver as shown.

You may need to pry on the sides of the bottom panel to completely release it.

Dryer wont stay hot

Assuming you have removed the lower access panel (two or three scres all the way at the bottom of the lower front panel) to view the glow plug (ignitor), if you see the ignitor cycle on but the gas does not ignite after the machine initially heated in the beginning of the cycle you will want to replace your gas valve coils. They are the round black things mounted to the top of your gas valve.
This should solve your problem.
Good luck to you!!

How do I get at the valve coil when the dryer does not have a front access panel. Whirlpool LGR4634JQ2

Ok, this dryer actually does have a front service panel, the entire front to be precise.
You will need to remove your lint screen first.

Now remove the two phillips head screws located at the lint screen inlet.

Next while standing in front of the dryer place a hand on the back of the control panel and pull the panel towards you. The entire top of the dryer should slide forward slightly and as it does use your fingertips to lift the top on the side you are pulling on at the front of the top where it meets the front panel. Now switch to the other side and repeat this until the entire front edge of the top is loose from the front panel.

Now lift the front of the top up and allow it to swing up like the hood on a car, let it lean against the wall.

Inside the front of the dryer you will see two screws that hold the top of the front panel to the sides of the unit. Remove these two screws and allow the top of the front panel to come forward slightly so that the felt support for the front of the drum is exposed on the top of the door opening. You may have to push the top of the drum towards the rear of the dryer.

Now pull up on first one side of the front panel and then the other side to disengage the lower portion of the front from the clips on the face of the side panels (they are like little hooks the front panel slips onto).

Once the front panel is loose you can usually swing it 90 degrees out to provide the access you need to your gas valve located in the bottom of the dryer (without disconnecting the door switch.

The drum should remain stationary as it will suspend on the two rear drum rollers while you work.

The gas valve coils are held to the gas valve by one steel cover plate that has two phillips head screws holding it to the valve.

Remove cover plate and wire connections, replace coils and reverse these instructions for re-assembly.

Good luck to you!

Hi, You will need to change the coils on top ogf the gas valve. If this is a Whirlpool model with rear panel access here is how: 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 two black coils on the gas valve. When you remove the three wire coil, make sure the sleeve inside it gets put back on the post the coils slides onto.
If this model is a front access model, just remove the lower front panle and the valve is on the right side
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

I have a whirlpool duet gas dryer. how do I open

1. Unplug the unit while servicing inside.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.

hi how-to-repair-a-dryer-1.jpg Except for the power cord and the exhaust vent, the components that make up the dryer are contained in a sheet metal box. Each component acts independently of the others, but all are interrelated in some way. There are several different ways to disassemble the cabinet for tests and repairs, depending on the manufacturer and model of the machine. Basic disassembly procedures are simple.

Some knobs may be held to their shafts with setscrews. Unscrew the fasteners and pull the knobs straight out. To get at most parts, however, only remove the back panel. Don't disassemble the rest of the cabinet until you're sure you can't make the tests, replacements, or repairs from the back. If the light in the dryer burns out, remove it from the dryer. You may need to remove retaining screws and panels to access it. Replace the burned-out bulb with a new one of the same type and wattage; check the ends of the 

Step 2: To remove the lower front panel, pull it away from the bottom of the cabinet. Lift the lower panel up and away. Remove the springs under each side of the lower panel.

Step 3: To remove the top panel, wedge a stiff-bladed putty knife under the rim of the top and pry the top off. The putty knife helps release several spring fasteners at the top of the cabinet sides and front.

Step 4: To remove the dryer's control panel, remove the screws that hold it to the cabinet top or front. These screws may be under a piece of metal or plastic trim; pry off or unscrew the trim. Most knobs are friction-fit; pull them straight out.

Caution: When testing or repairing the electrical parts of a gas dryer, remember that the dryer is hooked to a gas pipe. Turn off the shutoff valve on the supply pipe before disconnecting the gas supply line or moving the dryer and before doing any electrical work.
