This was my first dryer repair, and it was so easy. Simply pull out the lint trap and unscrew the two screws that are exposed. They attach the top deck of the dryer to the drum.
Once it's unscrewed, pull forward while lifting the top of the dryer. The top is attached to the control assembly. They should both lift up, but you'll need something to prop it up like you would the hood of your car.
Next, use the pliers to pinch the connector so that you can separate the two parts of the connector.
Open the dryer door to gain access to the screws that hold the switch in place. Use your screwdriver to unscrew the switch.
Plug the new switch connector in, and close up the dryer.
Word of caution; there are sharp edges inside the dryer so be careful.
