Dryer refused to start. Looked at "troubleshooting" section of manual. Several options, but door switch made the most sense since opening the door had not been stopping dryer for some time.
Googled for the part. Found part select. Photo looked like my door switch. Uplugged power. Removed the dryer filter screws. Pried up the top panel. Propped it open and removed the door switch (two screws and a plug. Two days later new part arrived. Installed it (two screws and plug. Pressed dryer top back down into place. Replaced two screws in filter unit. Plugged in power.
Started up right away. Spent more time figuring out how to lift dryer top than in removing and replacing switch.
