You will need to disassemble this to some degree. Having a voltmeter or test light will be beneficial too. If capable, reply with model# XXXXX I know what you have. I can tell you what to check and do as well as what part(s) need replacing. Part#s are your job to find out; any supply house can look up the parts by your model# XXXXX the name of what you need-that is what they get paid to do.

Get front off by popping up top-there are 2 spring clips a few inches in from each end-push in slightly and they will release top. Remove screws that hold front to cabinet.

I am a plumber with gas heat control experience. This is my dryer and it may be under warranty so I don't want to open it up just yet. I am familiar with 24 volt gas valves, igniters regulators etc. I would appreciate it if you could give me the troubleshooting procedures even though I don't have time to get to this until Sat. morning. To be honest, I wasn't even sure if I would get an answer back tonight.

I would do this step-by-step. No point in telling you 15 things to check when it may be #1. Also, if under wty why would want to pay me anyway?

Wife is busting my balls, thanks anyway, now I have to take her out for dinner. I'd rather stay home and tear into the machine. Have a good weekend.
