Question about Dryers
If the glow bar is cycling off and on the glow bar works and the black box on the side of the vent are working, Either there is no gas to the dryer, doubltful but something to check or, You need a gas valve.
I would check for gas first, do you have other gas appliances? and all are functioning properly? Check the gas line and make sure someone hasnt accidently turned off the gas. If it is none of these you need a gas valve.
Go to repairclinic.com or partselect.com with your Sp Q model number, or the part number off the gas valve, it could be a five digit 58**** or 51***** number. Get you best price. Im guessing 80 to 100 Amercian
When replacing the gas valve, unplug the dryer first, turn off the gas, remove the front panel, two screws lower front panel, you will need a crescent wrench for gas line of side and a 5/16 nut driver remove wires. Now remove the orfice from the old gas valve and make sure you install it on the new valve. Is this a Natural Gas or LP Gas dryer?, If it is LP make sure you make the conversion to LP. Ask if you have more questions on this.
install gas valve, tighten gas line turn gas on check for leaks! with a bubble solution, start dryer and make sure dryer works properly.
best of luck
