Is the glow bar lighting up? Do you hear the normal click?

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL

Fix it, don't replace it.  There's a small plastic cover on the lower left front panel.  Turn on the dryer.  Remove the cover and look through the hole.  Tell us what you see.

If the ignitor is glowing red replace solenoids. Check fuses for continuity.
