First removed the power from the dryer for safety. Removed the back of panel. After testing to see if there was continuity in the heating element and replacing all the thermostats in a previous repair. The switch was the next thing to replace. Removed several screws holding the switch in place then disconnected the cables one at a time and placed onto the new switch. The cables plugs are also unique in the desgin which would enable a person not to mess up if all the wire detached at one time. Then reattached the switch back into the dryer, then attached the back panel.
