One night my wife could not start the Dryer. I took a look at it and realized that the timer still advances, but it will not start.

I called a repair man to take a look at it and he confirmed that it was the timer. He said the total repair will cost me aroun $270.00 Parts and Labor.

I then came online and found partselect.com. I searched for the model number of the dryer, used the repair man tool and found what I was looking for.

It took me less then 10 minutes to take apart the dryer and replace the new part. I saved over $180.00 on labor.

To install,I unplugged the dryer from the power. I unscrewed the dryer top and pulled it out. I then unscrewed the timer and disconnected the wires and reconnected the wires to the new timer.

Screwed back the timer in place and screwed back the face plate. Plugged in the dryer, selected a timer setting and pressed the start button. My wife thinks I am a hero.

Thank you Partselect for the great service.
