Hi,

That file is 9.66MB and if your on a dial up connection it's going to take sometime to download it all.

I just tried the link and was able to download it in seconds, but I have one hell of a fast internet connection.  8)

once you remove them 2 bottom screws then pull the bottom of the front panel towards you and it will come off easily.
 You will then see the Gas operator in front. The coils just have quick connects. their are 2 phillips screws to remove. Replacing the coils is pretty easy. They can only go on one way. One of them has a 3 prong connection and the other has a 2 prong connection. If the gas assembly works once and then gets hot and quits then them coils are bad.

 O0 Yes you are. It's so simple when you know where to look. Now that I got the cover off, do you recommend that I hook it up to gas etc. (jumping door switch contacts) & test to see if it get warm & cold, or just go ahead & remove them & order new ones. Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it.

You must not run this machine with the panel removed. There will be no airflow and things will spiral downhill real fast :)

Coil kit (gas valve) - 2 coils icon
Check out this set of coils at appliance parts pros online. Coil kit (gas valve) - 2 coils - This popular, newer style coil kit fits most dryers with two-coil gas valve. Brands include Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag, Admiral, Crosley, Frigidaire, Estate, Amana, Kitchen Aid, GE, Hotpoint, Roper, White Westinghouse, Sears and others. The price is right too under 20 bucks I would go for it.

It's a shame I can't get those parts shipped to Canada. So I tried calling Sears  :tickedoff: $45 for one valve & $49 for the other. Looked up a couple mom & pop service center's & found them for $36 for the pair of them (same kit). Thanks for all the help guys  O0

Okay. Is there a plan "B"??? installed new coils. No difference. Is there a way to test them to see if they're defective?
