I have a Gas maytag "LDG9316AAE". Its been acting goofey. sometimes it heats up but most times it does not. In a very small screw hole in the back I can see inside. I see an orange glow come on for about 3-4 seconds and then go off. Every once in a while I see the glow, then it goes off but a few seconds later I can see a small flame. Any Idea whats going on. Does anybody think this is something I could fix. Im no pro but im usually ok with fixing things.

Very easy to replace....power off first!....gas can stay on.

A couple of screws and wire plugs to remove.

Repair was a complete success!!!!. The front of the dryer came off by removing two screws
and then lifting and popping it right off. The coils were right in front of my face. removed two
more screws pulled the old coils out dropped the new ones in, bam, Im done!!! put it back together
and were in business. the whole thing took about half an hour. Thanks again. This saved me a lot of money.
