I inherited a dryer with a weekend lake house purchased 4 years ago. The previous owners had a nice washer/dryer set that was old but worked well. However the dryer looked quite sad because the handle had broken and they had duct- taped the handle back onto the dryer door. What a designer look that was! With so many other things that needed attention around the place, I ignored the dryer handle because the washer and dryer were tucked away in a small closet and only visible when in use. When we decided to do a small remodel last month, the washer and dryer were given a new space that was part of a backdoor entry way. Now the dryer handle was an eyesore that greeted us every time we entered the house. That's when I decided to see if it was possible to replace a part on such an old appliance. That turned out to be a breeze with PartSelect! I went on their web site, entered the model number of the dryer and bingo! A dryer handle was in stock, I ordered it, and it was on my doorstep within 3 days! I pulled off the old dryer handle, used some goop to remove the sticky residue from the duct tape and snapped the new handle in place. Instantly the dryer went from sadsack to smiley face! Thank you, PartSelect!
