Unplugged dryer. Removed knobs and display panel. Removed bad start switch. This was a bit tricky for a novice. Had to do a bit of twisting. Once the new part was installed, I screwed in the display panel. The dryer worked, but I discovered that the part wasn't securely in place. It took three tries before I finally figured out how to secure the part. Now, everytime I start my dryer, I sing "I am Woman, Hear me Roar!" Woo Hoo!!! Sounds like a little thing to all you Do-It-Yourselfers out there, but to me, this really empowered me. Hmmm, what's next? Maybe the edge of the garage door??? See Ya!
