Problem to me appeared to be something with the GAS supply - suspect in my book was the Flex Gas Line the Lowe's installed, the problem as I saw it was that the Gas line from the dryer was straight connection and the line from the wall was at a 90 degree. This caused the flex line to bend a bit more than what it should have at the terminal end of the dryer gas inlet on the rear. Lowe's should have used a 45 degree pipe fitting attached to the Dryer Gas Port to allow for some added flexibility.
We had many conversations over the phone and he informed me if this was the problem that he did not do this work, Which means a plumber would have been needed.

But as I have the dryer pulled from the wall and I did get heat this validated my logic. And again in many phone conversations we soon learned that it was still having issues w No Heat (or (Partial Low Heat) . So after more phone conversations we decided to go ahead and have him come out.
Now I am somewhat technical / engineering / mechanical minded person ( I'm retired but don't want to be) I had removed the top of the dryer and was vacuuming up the lint inside when he arrived! So he and I shook hands ( very friendly) and did some testing and discussed my issue. Now I had though about my original premiss and had dismissed it and knew it was something else.
We ran some tests and he removed the exhaust flex tube to see into the exhaust area for any buildup of lint and their was none.
Of course w his 30 years of experience he had a good idea as to what the problem was. And then after informing me the price to which I had the Angie's coupon and also asked for a retired person discount on top he said it would be 140.00 - which was 40 for parts and 100 for labor. I said fine.( maybe I should have haggled a bit more)!
Now It used to be that you when you needed to service the applianced you did it from the rear of these units. Not any more the gas valve was in the front. So after he showed me how to remove the control pannel he then removed the front and set that asside - door is attached. We then cleaned up the area around this and he used him MultiMeter to test the coils on the gas valve. In this situation the coils were turning off prematurely as they have breaks in the coil wire, Which would shut off gas.

So he replaced the Gas Valve Coils to resolve the problem - note that the Coils come in a set and should be replaced as a pair. One is a three terminal and the other is a two terminal - don't mix them up. So after reassembly of the front we tested it again and the Dryer had more heat as a result of this fix. He then closed it up w my help and let me push it back into place to which I said fine.
Over all his fix was spot on and quiet fast not more that an hour w testing and the like. So his labor rate was almost fair but the cost for the parts is about $22.00 from Appliance Parts here in San

whereas he charged me $40.00, this I found out is a bit much for

up of the parts. SO the next time this happens ( in 5 years ) then I have the knowledge and the power to fix this myself. If I can remember it as I have that other

So after this issue and two other problem w heat that are caused by the dryers low static pressure of the dryer blower motors which leave lint etc in the exhaust duct which in my case runs under the house and you need to clean the entire 4 inch duct using a Dryer duct cleaning service (two time in 5 years @ avg cost of $120) . I have decided to add a 2nd lint trap and a additional Dryer vent booster vent motor to push the air out of the vent due to the long duct run under the house and the 3 plus 90 degree turns that it takes. I only say this as my old commercial Electric Dryer made in USA by Whirlpool didn't need this assistance - it blew the lint out the exhaust vent at the side of the house w a vengeance. Oh well that the price for outsourcing!
Over all was impressed with LP Appliance - his degree of service did not need any factory manual to look to for assistance. It was all in his head and overall I would us him again but maybe haggle a bit more on the parts costs.

I scheduled the service on-line using their website providing my email address and cell phone number. I selected today, 12/3/2013 between 3PM and 7PM Pacific time. I received an email with my confirmation number and their commitment that they would call before they arrived.
Well, the service person was a no-show. And they didn't even have the courtesy to call. We were here, waiting, before 3 and after 7PM. As it got closer to 7PM, we kept checking to see if there was an email or a missed call or voice message.
Inexcusable. Next time, I'll get a GE Profile dishwasher. So far, we've had great luck with that brand. I definitely will not go through this again.

The representatives showed up as promised, and attempted to reconnect the dryer. The dryer has steam care feature but the technicians were apparently not made aware of this though the we specifically noted this when we set the appointment. The technicians were unable to connect the water hose necessary to enable steam. I did that myself.

Overall though the technicians were courteous and pleasant to work with.

but the power outlet is losing one 110v out of the 2 (total 220v). He said he can try to work on the electrician part but that's not his expertise. If made it work, he world charge $90 for that; if not, he wouldn't charge a penny. After about 45 minutes, he told me it would be too much for me to crawl in my roof to check the wires/connectors. it would be better to leave it to an electrician. So he left without charging anything.
I felt his honesty and praise his professionalism. I would definitely hire him again if another appliance of mine breaks.

Great. They explained what they were doing, told me how to send a report to my fridge company so that I had more evidence in case it failed in the future. They were prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable.

I called around 11am on a Sunday morning. He was at my door within an hour, diagnosed the issue in a few minutes, gave me a firm price for repair (including the new motor and belt) and openly discussed the tradeoffs of buying a new dryer versus fixing this one. He told me that it would take him about an hour to get the parts, and about 2 hours to fix. I decided to go forwad with the repair. He headed out, was back within about the hour that he said, commenced to repair, and repairs were complete exactly as promised. On-time and perfect.

He is very friendly, clearly knows what he's doing, amazingly prompt and on-time, and cleaned up afterwards. It's outstanding to see this kind of service where on a Sunday morning, you call him, and 4 hours later your 18-year-old dryer is as good as new.

Good estimate and it came out to be that exact amount. Good there. Great and fast service. I got the appliance repaired the day I called. The only small complaint was when I initially called I was told that the visit would be $30 if I didn't use his service, regardless of whether the vendor could fix the appliance. After some push-back, the vendor said that there would be no charge if he determined that he couldn't fix the appliance.
