This was my second time having to fix this dryer and since it was apart previously i figured i would not have an issue remembering all of the screws that held the back of the dryer together. I carefully removed all of the connections (3) to the relay switch and replaced it with the new one and again was careful to handle the soldered connections while reconnecting them , once this was done i plugged in the dryer and low and behold it stayed on and has since been working with no further issues. Thank you Part Select for being there for us as we have a two year old and are expecting another child in april 2010 . Your availability is none surpassed. Thanks , Tim Lansing , Schenectady NY
