The Door Swith Acuator Spring was broken. I unplugged the dryer. Removed the two screws on the top control panel. Lifted the top of the dryer and propped it up. Then removed the two wires attached to the door switch (remember to label them with tape-one without and one with tape). Then as suggested by a previous "repairman" loosen the two screws that hold the switch just enough to remove the actuator. You do not have to completely remove the screws. Slip in the new actuator and reverse the process. Voila ... you have a new dryer and a very happy better half. I was given a kitchen pass to play golf and savor some "spirit" water.

Advice: Don't slam the dryer door. The actuator will last longer.
