Hello from our service,

My name is***** am so happy to help you today.

I would like to say that we are also on the honors system. I in good faith am going to do my utmost to ensure your satisfaction. Please before rating me, make sure that I have answered all your questions.

This is a very common problem with gas dryers from all brands, the coils on the unit get weak and only work one or 2 times then fail to relight anymore, takes about 20 minutes to replace, If yo click on the blue link below you can order the coils that go on the gas valve to fix this yourself and save yourself $130 in labor.

On the same page as you order the part there should be a video showing how to replace it..

All I ask of you is to please rate me with one of the top 3 ratings. If there is anything else I can help you with today just let me know. You can continue asking questions for as long as you like even after you rate me. Tips are welcome if I have helped you a lot, however they are not mandatory
