Washer quit running when lid was closed

  • Customer: Colleen from Indianapolis IN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

This repair took me longer because I was just giving it a try - I have no experience, although I tend to be "handy." I'm sure anyone with experience would rate this as "easy" and have taken only a short time. I had to watch the video several times to understand what to do - and the comments were helpful too. My washer is an OLD maytag, so I removed the front of the dash and pulled it forward to access the electronics. My switch had only 2 prongs, so I hooked up to the "lid closed" option on the new switch. It works perfectly now. Very pleased I gave it a try.

Followed the instructions and really quite easy to fix. I didn't know why dryer wouldn't turn on but went with the odds that the thermal fuse was the problem-- and it was. Once I got the part it was back together and running in less than 30 minutes!

Removed two small screws on door edge, pop out broken part, insert new part, replace screws. Took 2 minutes 18 seconds. Nice to have various door catches in the Kit. This was a repair on a 1979 Whirlpool Dryer. Great price & service!!

Extremely easy! you can do this too. Just watch the video and have the few basic tools the video suggests. I am not skilled in repair at all. This part was shipped very fast and everything I needed was on the site. The hardest part was cleaning up the lint, seriously. Don't spend $100+ for a repair person to come to your home. This task is simple for anyone, any skill level.

Our make/model was not on the online instruction, but it was similar. Ours had a glass (plastic)front window in the door. To remove the top catch you had to take out the top four screws that hold the door together (philips head screws) allowing you to pull back the gray plastic strip to access the top latch, then replace it like in the online directions using a needle nose pliers. The bottom catch, once the two remaining the screws were out gives you access to the bottom catch. Remove it with the pliers and snap the new ones into place. You can completely take out the window when you replace the bottom latch if you want.

Easy to follow videos on your site made this repair a breeze. I ended up having to replace the high temp cutoff as well but for 60 bux my dryer works like new. The repair man wanted $100 just to come look at it. Could not have done of without the easy to follow video.

Dryer stopped heating

(Always unplug dryer before making any repairs) I opened the dryer and checked the heating element. Making sure that the connection was good and nothing was damaged, I determined the problem was overheated wires. They melted and lots connection. I replaced them with the heating element wire connection kit. Easy to install and simple to get right. I cleaned the dryer again with a vaccum cleaner, removing all the lint, and checked the vents, making sure they were clear...I turned the breaker on (it was tripped when the dryer overheated)and everything worked great.

My daughter threw a heavy wet comforter into the dryer and the tri-ring sheared off.
