The first thing you need to do is remove the front panel to see if the igniter is glowing or not. Open the door and remove the 2 screws through the door hinge going into the front panel. Then remove the 2 screws on the opposite side of the door way going into the front panel. The front panel will unclip at the top and hinge forward and down.

Now close the door and start a cycle. Look under the drum for 2 minutes with the dryer running and do you see anything glowing? It would be very obvious.
