First off, I have to give credit to PartSelect.com for fast delivery. I had the parts two days after I ordered them.

The repair was very quick and easy. There are about 10 Torx head screws holding the inner panel to the door so I decided to use an electric drill to remove and put them back. I put the proper size Torx driver into my portable electric drill and removed all of the screws in less than 2 minutes. The door latch assembly is secured with two of those door screws, so it was already loose when I lifted the panel away from the door. All I had to do was unplug the two wire harness's from the old switch, replace with a new switch and plug them back in. The door panel went back on easily and quickly with the electric drill. My drill has a built-in torque adjuster so I set it to lightly secure the screws which made the job go fast.

The lint filter was just a replacement for an older one on the cloths dryer that had developed holes in it. Perfect fit.
