Wavy From New Albany, IN

Turned the dryer circuit breaker off. Removed the console from the dryer and then removed the screws holding the back plate. I then pulled the spade lugs off the terminals of the pushbutton. To remove the pushbutton from the console I had to turn the pushbutton so the square on the pushbutton aligned with the square hole on the mounting base of the console. This allowed me to remove the old pushbutton. I was now ready to install the new pushbutton. I aligned the square on the pushbuuton with the square on the mounting base. Once inserted in the square hole , I rotated the pushbutton securing it to the base. I reinstalled the spade lugs on the terminals of the pushbutton. I then secured the back plate to the console and put the console back onto the dryer. I turned the breaker back on and tested a dryer cycle. It worked!
