Hello,

Yes the baffles could be removed to clean them by removing the lint filter,in the top where the filter goes are 2 phillips head screws,remove them,use medium sized straight blade screwdriver and place it in the seam between the top in and front panel and pop up the top,them pivot back against the wall(dont worry it is hinged in the rear and wont fall off). You will see the drum and can remove the screws that screws that hold the baffles in place,to rotate the drum to get to each baffle rotate it by hand in a counterclockwise direction.

The regulator is built into the top of the gas valve. The picture above
shows what must be done to convert the valve to LP gas usage.

As short as possible with no turns if possible. Ideally it would be short and stright, If possible have someone small that can climb over machine after tighting the clamps. Use a aluminum hose and snips or dikes to cut. Do not use the plastic ones they are a fire hazard and a code violation in many states.

the fuses are usually found at an appliance parts store. You can google "whirlpool dryer parts" and find a parts store near you or one you can order from over the internet. I have replaced many of those, and they cost between 20.00 and 30.00 dollars.

If it has been moved recently or just jostled around the small heater element that prompts the gas valve to open up may have broken, open the front cover and check out the element, it should make a complete circuit from and back to the wire connector.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/gregg_78ecbb34e27be215

There is a thermal fuse and a thermal cut off that can stop the heat entirely.

If you have some heat but not enough these are not the issue, let me know and I can go deeper if needed.

The thermal fuse is located behind the back panel just to the left of the exhaust outlet. It is white with 2 blue wires going to it.

The thermal cut off is behind the back panel on the right side about 1/2 way up the metal box. It also has 2 wires going to it (usually red).
