You need to take the front off the dryer and it will be alongside the gas tube going inside the combustion chamber. The igniter is one of those curly wand types and has a quick disconnect connector on it and is secured with a couple of screws.

Here are some diagrams that might help you:

Our laundry room is in the center of the house and the dryer vent runs underneath the house and every 6 months or so we have to run a plumbing snake all the way through the vent pipe. Once it all the way through the house we then tie a rope to the end of it with a huge knot tied into it, we then snake the rope through the pipe and it pulls out all the lint that has collected inside, someone at each end of the rope (make sure it's long enough) and run it back and forth until no more lint is collected. I hope this might help you.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.

Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical console with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.Now is a good time to replace the front felt seal on the drum if it needs to be replaced. Be sure to use a good grade of weatherproof cement on the seal to glue it to the drum, sometimes the glue is furnished with the seal.
Now is also a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots they will make a thumping type of noise or if there is too much wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3inOne oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

That could be the problem look at how the belt is running thru the tensioner and the shaft of the motor. Then run the belt the opposite way if still the same you might have the wrong belt. Get the model number off the dryer and take new belt back to parts house with model number to make sure its right hope this helps.

Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.
