If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

JKP86-27 neither heating element (broil or bake) is working. Other controls and microwave work fine.

In my case the problem was the solder around the pins of the DLB relay heated up and melted away from the pin. I found this info on another post. I put more solder on and built it up to the top of the pin to provide more metal there.

Update 8/27/2016
I've found other similar problems, e.g. on a Bosch dishwasher. The symptom is solder is vaporized on relay pins. One poster said if the relay contacts wear and increase their resistance this will cause the pins on the circuit board to overheat and vaporize the solder. So if this is the case just adding more solder may only add additional time. The true fix would be to replace the relay to solve the overheating problem. Nevertheless it's been four years since I added solder and it's still working fine.

I also had a problem like this with my Craftsman garage door opener. It was flaky- it would sometimes just blink and then stop (and it wasn't the obstruction sensor). When I took out the circuit board I found a poor solder joint. Some posters also said the pins on the circuit board connectors could fatigue and stop making good contact (in this case you have to bend them to make good contact again). Likewise the wall button/IR motion sensor started acting up and I found resoldering some pins fixed it. So loose solder or connector issues might be common.

Hotpoint DLB 1550 clothes dryer belt replacement

I don't know of any sites with pictures but, remember just average people assemble these so it's not as hard as it seems. The electrical connectors are one way fit so you don't have to worry about mixing them up. If your worried though use tape to lable where they go. The drum rides on the front of the dryer so when you remove the front the drum will drop down. Remove the old belt and then slide the new belt back to where the old belt rode on the drum. Make sure there are no twists in the belt. Loop the belt on the motor pulley and the loop it over the tensioning wheel. Make sure the tension wheel puts plenty of tension on the belt. Have someone help you hold the drum in place while you put the front on.Before you close the top turn the drum by hand to make sure it turns smoothly. Then close it up and run it empty and listen for squeaks and scraping sounds. Good luck and if you have more questions ask. I can help you through if you need help. Please rate me so I know if I'm helping. Thanks
