Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.


On the front panel on the left side towards the bottom you will see a small plastic square cap. Pop this cap off and set the dryer on high heat and start it, watch through the hole in tell me if you see the igniter glowing (getting orange) give it a few minutes and tell me if it glows,

sorry my computer froze up. are you asking how to get to the cap or the igniter? the cap is # XXXXX on this diagram, this pops off and you can look through the hole to see if the igniter is glowing.
