thank you to customer service for the prompt and kind handling of my order.

when i first tried to do the repair, i couldn't open the front cover of the dryer because the screws needed a special screwdriver that looked like a flower. after i bought one, i was able to open the front cover, take out the old switch(took me some time to figure it out),replace it with the new one, return the front cover, and replace the old know with the new. turned it on and VOILA -- it worked!!
