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

I watched the video multiple times until I was comfortable. He made it look so easy. I'm convinced the dryer was using had been "prepped" to come apart and go back together easily. The reality for me: Great difficulty popping the cabinet top. It took every ounce of power to push in the hinges. Disconnecting the existing switch was difficult. I depressed in the catches on each side, but of course one at a time since I only have two hands. I tried various rigs to get both pushed in at once - nothing. Finally I watched a different vendor's video and the technique he used worked for me. Lastly, screwing in the new part is darn near impossible upside down to screw it in straight. The screws also wouldn't go in flush with the surface. I got them in well enough to hold, but that's it. The good news, the choice of part was correct and it fixed the problem. Had it now, I would have gone to Plan B and ordered a different part and paid another $9 shipping on top of the part. In my next life, I'm going to marry a appliance repairman.

I unplugged the dryer from the wall outlet and remove the two screws from the lint filter area, followed the instructions that were in the repair video and put the appliance back together and re=attached the power supply. It worked perfectly. Thanks so much for your service and instruction help.

Easy, screw driver (flathead) popped up two clamps on each side of top. maybe 3" from each side. Propped lid up with I think I used a full roll of paper towels, part was inside top left, unscrewed old,used small hook tool to unplug old, put new checked to see if it worked and bang lower top pop in place.NOTE : I am pretty good with fixing little things like this.. PLease UNPLUG for safety first then take time and be happy when you save $ on doing it yourself.

According to your site, we purchased the Door Switch and the Thermal Fuse as these two parts had the highest percent of "what could be wrong". Figured we would send one back if we didn't use it. The Door Switch was replaced first and the dryer worked! Two days later, the dryer stopped working again. Still had the Thermal Fuse so we changed that out. The dryer worked again! Both parts arrived sooner than excepted! Both parts were simple to replace! The diagrams were very handy. The picture of the parts assisted greatly and the video's were the icing on the cake! VERY glad that we ordered both! Will recommend to everyone! PartSelect is bookmarked should we ever need your assistance in the future!
