Question about Whirlpool LGV4634JQ Gas Dryer
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!
