I opened the control panel from the back. I held the new switch next to the old switch and changed one wire at a time so that I would be sure they were connected in the same manner. It was simple. I have American Home Shield and I usually call them for repairs. Sometimes they are slow and after 3 days the contractor that they usually call didn't have a work order from them. I was tired of waiting so I ordered the part myself. I got overnight shipping and repaired it myself for about half what the American Home Shield minimum charge would have been. The day I got the dryer working again, the contractor called to scheduyle a time to come to my house. I told him the repair was done and I didn't need him. It made me feel good to take care of it myself and save money too.
