I noticed the door switch handle was flopping back and forth--no longer was tight. I popped the top up and took out the screws holding the dryer vent to the top of the dryer, so I could put the top back out of the way. I disconnected the switch wiring harness which was on the top, right of the dryer sticking through to the dryer door. I pushed down on the tab that was holding the switch tight to the wiring harness. I wrote down the model number of the dryer and the part number. I ordered the part from partselect.com--this was the easiest part of the whole process! I thought initially I would not be able to find the identical switch I needed for the old dryer that I have. It took a couple of days to get the switch in the mail. I put the new switch in the same position as the old one was. I put the screws back in the dryer vent, popped down the top of the dryer, and plugged it back in. (I had already cleaned the dryer duct work--thought that might be why the dryer didn't start. Glad I cleaned the duct, but the cleaning did not fix the problem of getting the dryer started.

First of all, your operator was patient and courtious and extremely knowlegable. They knew right away what part was required. I watched a video on youtube describing the job. When the part arrived, on time, I just did what the video told me to do and in under 30 minutes the jobwas done and the dryer works perfectly. I'll be back for sure

(pull apart) Then, connect the new switch assembly and align over the two screw holes on the dryer door frame with the switch trip arm in proper position. Insert the screws and tighten carefully.

I came home from work to notice the dryer singing a different tune than usual. I opened the door and noticed that the tub wasnt turning. I popped the top of the dryer up to find a disentigrated belt. Fired up the computer and in a few minutes had ordered the $8 ($15 including shipping) replacement belt. 3 Days later took the shopvac and cleaned up the lint and broken belt pieces. Installed the new belt and was back in business with my 8 year old dryer. ** The only complaint comes from my wife who got her hopes up for a new front load washer and dryer** thanks partselect for saving my wallet in more than one way!

Can't stop laughing about the mistake I almost made, before I even looked on internet I called Sears and scheduled a repair appointment, $80.00 just to have someone come out and tell me what my problem was not to repair it but to tell me whats wrong. And I told them the belt had broken I heard it when it snapped. Long story short version I found your website and entered appliance information, found part for $15.00 but also found on-site video clearly making the needed repair. Clear step by step instructions taking only 8 minutes looked very easy so I took a chance ordered the part two days later part arrived so I went into basement armed with laptop and tools. MAN it was easy.... too easy ....worked out fine video was spot on. Thanks you guys are a great company
