Hi there and thank you for choosing this service.
i see that the model number calls for a (whirlpool) dryer, is that what you have?
It says hotpoint but that is the exact same model number
Okay, here is what you need to do, Remove the screws from the small access panel at the front of the dryer. Pull out the access panel. the go ahead and
Turn the gas valve at the back of the unit to the "off" position to stop the flow of gas. after that
Unscrew the nut holding the burner system to the gas valve inside the dryer. Remove the two screws holding the burner assembly inside the unit. Pull the burner system out.
Pull on the igniter connector to remove it from the burner assembly. Plug in the new igniter and replace the burner assembly. that is all that needs to be done to replace it. i did not post the diagram only because the model number that you have posted calls for a whirlpool model which is not the same at all. if i have been helpful and if you have no further questions, please leave a positive rating before you go so that i may receive credit. thank you.
Ok so I got home and saw that it's the whirlpool duet. If you are able to show me an instructional video of some type, I will leave a generous tip thank u
Thank you waiting. here is the instructions that are very simple to follow.
the first thing you need to do is
Go to the front of the dryer, and insert a flathead screwdriver between the toe panel and the front panel. Push the screwdriver handle up to pry the top of the toe panel away from the dryer. Move the toe panel away from the work area.
Disconnect the wiring harness that connects to the flame sensor on the burner can. The harness will pull apart with your fingers. Remove the wiring harness from the burner connector on the base of the dryer below the burner.
Remove the two screws that secure the burner assembly bracket to the base of the dryer with a socket wrench. The burner assembly fits inside the burner tube, and the mounting bracket is in front of the burner tube.
Push the burner assembly forward to release the assembly from the bottom tabs. Pull the burner assembly out of the dryer. go ahead and
Disconnect the wire connector from the burner assembly to the igniter with your fingers. The igniter mounts to the front of the burner assembly. Remove the screw securing the igniter to the burner assembly with a Phillips-head screwdriver.
here us a diagram that will also help you just in case you run into any confusions.
Ok I installed the new igniter and where it belongs glows orange and then goes dark. Is that normal. Dryer is completely cold
Yes stays on for about 10. Seconds then stays dark for 57 seconds then lights again
Okaym that sounds like the coils on the gas valve are faulty, which will cause this problem, i would suggest that you replace them.
first remove the vent off the exhaust housing, then run a cycle for about 10 minutes, tell me if it continues to do the same?
Where is gas valve located
