I’m going to be explaining you how to replace the gas valve coil in your dryer the reason why you might have to do this is because you’re not getting any heat at all in your dryer or because your clothes are taking longer than you go to dry for this repair we’ll be using a Philips head screwdriver and a flat head screwdriver warning before doing any repairs please disconnect your power source so this is the appliance that we’ll be using in this demonstration it’s a GE keep in mind yours at home might look a little bit different than what we’ve got here but the same techniques should still apply make sure you turn your gas off so we’re going to start by turning our dryer around so we’ll need to do is remove these screws up here in order to get the control panel off so now that we’ve got the back unscrewed we can just slide the control panel over and we’re going to lift it up and we’re going to put it back in this space right here now we’re going to open up our dryer door and on either side there are two screws going straight up so we need to remove those screws now and we’re going to be using a Phillips head screwdriver to take these screws out now that we’ve got those screws out we can take the top off all we have to do is just lift up and pull back slightly on the top and we’ll set that off to the side so now that I’ve got these screws out I want to close up our front and dryer door now I’ve got two more screws that screw into the front panel and I’m just going to remove those as well and when you remove them just make sure that when you get close to having them come out catch some because you don’t want to fall down into the dryer there you go now that we’ve got those screws out we can tilt the front panel forward and once we’ve got it tilted forward and separated from the drum we can lift it up over the tabs on the bottom and just turn it like so because we’ve got some wires attached to it as well so now I’m going to do is I’m going to detach some of these wires here first one I want to detach is this black one that’s connected right over here and to do that I’m just going to use a flathead screwdriver and I want to pry up there we go now I’ve got this plastic guard that’s in my way a little bit what I’m going to do just pull it slightly out like that so let’s remove from the frame and now I can move it out of my way again just don’t move it too far you don’t want to break it little bit just enough so that I can use my screwdriver and pry these wires off one and we just need to unplug our white wire and we’ll just pull that straight out there so now I’m just going to move this last wire here and once again just pull that straight out so right on top of the drum here we’ve got this piece which is our belt there so in order to get it off I’m going to reach inside of our dryer here and I’ve got to get my arm in that little hole we’re gonna have to push up on the lever to release the tension and reach in with our other hand and now we can just take that right off so now that we’ve removed the belt from the pulley we can lift up on the belt that’ll help us pick up the drum so the rear coil is the one we’re gonna replace that’s our gas valve coil the other one is the main gas valve coil so you’re gonna make sure that you’re replacing the correct one and ordering the correct part number when you do this but when we replace this one we’re going to unplug it first and these wires will just pull straight out and now we’re going to remove the screws that hold down this bracket and once those screws are off we can simply lift up the bracket and take that off and then we can take our old coil and just put that straight off now you can grab your new OEM replacement gas valve coil if you don’t have one already you can find it on our online store and with our gas valve coils having this nice round hole in the middle of it we’re going to put that over the peg just like that and then we’re gonna line up the little nubs on the top of the valve and those will line up with our bracket here so we’ll set that down and now we’ll screw it into place now that we’ve got the bracket secured on there we can plug the coil back in just like that so you’ll see on the back your drum here there’s a small shaft and when you put the drum back in you’re going to want to make sure that shaft goes into that hole right there there we go so it’s a little bit hard to line it up when you can’t really see it back there but you can do the best you can it might take a couple of tries to get it exactly in place there we go after a couple tries you should be able to get it in there and you’ll see that the rim of the drum is inside the frame of the dryer there now to put the drum back on we’re gonna take the belt we’re going to go on the other side of the wheel here just like this we’re gonna lift it up keeping this all together and then loop the belt around the shaft here make sure everything not straight there we go and then everything should be able to spin freely now just like that we’re gonna reattach that to the middle this is a white wire that goes up along the edge of the door and goes to the light so that’s plugged in now and now with this last one we attach it right there now I’m going to put this plastic piece back into place so right into that slot right there and we’ll plug our last wire in and you’re just going to make sure that these slight bumps there line up with the holes outside that fits in nicely and now I’ll put the front panel back on so now we’re going to line up our front panel with the tabs on the bottom we’re going to set those into those tabs and stand the door up as we do that we’re also going to line up with the drum and the inside of that plastic piece on the washer is going in the drum and we’ve also got these metal tabs on the side that are going into the slots on the frame so once those are all lined up and the panel is flush we can screw it back on so now we’re going to get our screw started in this hole here and then after we get it started screw it down nice and tight same thing on this side start our screw in by hand and use our Philips head screwdriver to finish the job now I’m going to put the top back on and you’ll see there are two tabs sticking out from the top there gonna be two slots that correspond with them so I’m going to line all those up so after I line those up make sure that the tabs going to slots just like that and there’s a couple on the front as well so now we can screw that back in so we’ll put in our screw and with that little tiny hole at the top you should be able to line up the screw with the hole that it belongs to there once you got that started a little bit there screwing it in so now we’re going to put our lint filter back into place since that came out a little while ago now we can close our dryer door now we can line our control panel back up and slide that back over and set that back into place now we can screw it back in now we can turn our dryer back around and then once we do that we’ll plug everything back in and your repair is complete now we can turn our gas back on finally don’t
