Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The igniter resistance is not provided nor is it important, if the igniter does not glow and it's getting 120 volts, the igniter is broken. 

If the igniter is glowing and the oven safety valve is not opening in order to let gas flow to the burner, the igniter is weak and will need to be replaced. The igniter must pull enough amperage/current before the oven safety valve will open. The oven igniter must pull a minimum of 2.3 - 3 amps in order for the oven gas valve to open. To test to see if the igniter is weak, you will have to use a clamp on amperage meter and clamp the amp meter around one of the wires connected to the igniter.

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

I know that it can be very difficult to have issues with your dryer. Normally this type of repair is completed by a service technician. You should only attempt this repair if you are completely confident that you can safely complete the steps below. I recommend that you read through the entire procedure before beginning any disassembly. If you have any questions, resubmit them with detail for more help with this procedure.

Here are the steps to replace your dryer belt:

Caution: Disconnect electrical power completely to the dryer before accessing any internal component. Internal metal edges may be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended.

  1. Disconnect electrical power completely to the dryer by unplugging it.
  2. With a putty knife, release the two clips that hold the dryer top to the front panel. The top will release from the clips and hinge upward. Just loosen the top. Do not remove it.
  3. Remove the front toe panel. Use a putty knife as above to find and release the clips on each side. Pull the toe panel off and set it aside.
  4. Remove the lint screen.
  5. Hinge the top backward. Release the two door springs.
  6. Remove the two screws attaching the lint duct to the dryer and remove the lint duct.
  7. Remove the two screws at the bottom and the two screws at the top of the front panel.
  8. Pull the wiring harness out of the clips inside the top side of the dryer. Disconnect the wiring harness.
  9. Lift up and remove the front panel.
  10. Remove the old belt from the dryer drum and motor pulley.
  11. Position the new belt around the dryer drum. You may need to lift up slightly on the drum to move the belt over the front support rollers.
  12. Reassemble the front panel in reverse order. Do not replace the toe panel.
  13. Reach under the drum and route the drive belt through the idler pulley and around the motor pulley as illustrated below.
  14. Replace the toe panel and secure the dryer top in the clips.
The images below will also provide these instructions.  I you would like to view a video on how to replace this belt just click on this link:  Dryer Belt Replace.  If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, just click on this link to schedule service: Sears Home Services. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for your question on the pedal arms coming off the disc axles.

I believe that if you remove the place cap off the arms you will see that the retainer bolt and washer are missing or unscrewed from the crank arm.

Check the part key number 40 and 35 for not being threaded into the crank arm. It looks like the bolt is there but not the retainer washer.

Please let me know what you find out after remove the end cap.

Hi Sam, Thank you so much for you response. I removed the cap on both the left and right sides and both pedals arms are missing 76 large wave washer, 35 M10 washer and 40 M10 X 27mm Patch Screw. I will order those parts. Both pedal bushings are there. Should i be concerned that they are over used and should be replaced as well? Thank you again for your prompt response.
