How do I get the front off my Sears Gas Dryer, Model 11077092600 so I can test and if needed, replace the igniter?
ANSWER Hello James. Here are the steps to take the cabinet off of your dryer.

Use a screwdriver to remove the three retaining screws on the top rear of the dryer. These screws are directly under the area where the control panel sits.

Locate the door switch and disconnect the wiring harness from the switch. The door switch is located inside the front right corner of the dryer cabinet. Press in on the plastic locking tab to disconnect the wiring harness.
Insert a putty knife between the top of the toe panel and the bottom of the front panel and locate the retaining clip. Press in on the clip and pull the toe panel away from the dryer.
