My Calypso Dryer has a lower access panel, can igniter be replaced by removing only this lower access panel and if not what all has to be disassembled in addition to the gas line connection?
Thanking you in advance
Answer Hello Ralph,
You might be able to get to it but is going to be a tight fit. It is easier to remove the front and raise the top and remove the drum. This will enable you to look right at it without reaching around the other components. You can try it through the lower front panel and if it seems like you cannot do it, then remove the front, top, and drum.
If igniter ohms good what is next?
Answer Hello Wayne. You will need to test the thermostats and the flame sensor and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter to see if it is glowing. If it is not glowing, test for power. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter for the testing procedures. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
What should the resistance reading be when doing an ohmmeter check of the igniter?
Answer Hello Johngolo. You would check continuity on the ignitor it should show closed or resistance check should be between 50 and 500 ohms. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

Whirlpool ultimate care II - checked the ignitor, it is good, no heat to dryer. What do I check next?
Answer Hello Thomas,
You can check the flame sensor, the coils on the gas valve, the thermal fuse, the thermostats, (high limit and cycling), the centrifugal switch in the motor, and the timer. This is just from memory since no model number was listed.
Ignitor glows but it takes two or more trys before it ignites.
You would check continuity on the ignitor it should show closed or resistance check should be between 50 and 500 ohms. If open then ignitor or outside ohm range then it is bad. Check your flame switch, it should read closed and if open it is bad. Check gas valves for continuity and thermal fuses and thermostats for continuity. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
