I opened up the top back of the dryer by removing 6 screws and removed the switch and tested the dryer without the old switch plugged in. The dryer would stay off when the door is shut like it was supposed too. That is how I figured out I had a bad switch. When I got the new switch, it was just as easy as unplug the old one and plug in the new one. My dryer was this way for many years. It is great to finally have it fixed.
