I am a 75 year old woman who always had servicemen do the repairs that needed to be done in my home. However, living on Social Security I needed to reduce my expenses. I watched the video of how to replace the part and determined I could follow them easily. Within a short time the door switch was installed and the clothes dryer started working at the push of the on button.

I watched the wonderful you tube video, and realized my whirlpool dryer was a bit different than the one used as an example. I first unplugged my dryer. I didn't need the putty knife because I had to take the sides off the top part of dryer that housed all the wires. I just needed a small Phillips head screwdriver for that. There were three screws holding the top of the dryer down, and i took those off with a small socket. Then I just slid the top of the dryer forward, took the top completely off, and there was the door switch on the upper left side. I unscrewed the switch from the dryer because I couldn't get it apart until I did. That was the hardest part of the whole process--pullining the switch apart. I used a flat head screwdriver and pliers to help separate it. At that point, I went online and ordered the door switch from Part Select. I received my part within two days. I put the new switch in, and it worked great--my dryer light also came back on when the new switch was installed. This is the first time I have ever attempted anything like this, but after seeing the video, I felt like I could do it. Just for the record...I am a female and 65!

The video from your website is exactly the steps I followed to remove the old door switch 3 wire and install the new one. Very easy! NOTE: 1 Week before the dryer totally stopped working, my mother opened the dryer door when it finished (sound alert) but, the dryer was still spinning + the light did not come on. I noticed that the small black lever (part of the door switch wire which sticks out & presses against the door when the door is closed) was extremely loose. It seemed as if the lever was broken (perhaps the last time I used the dryer the door slipped from my hand and broke the black piece). Video tutorial was great!

I watched a video from Parts Select and learned that most problems with gas dryers revolve around two things: a broken door switch and a burnt fuse. I knew my door switch was broken. So I figured out how to lift the top of the dryer (unscrew two bolts in the back and two screws under the lint screen) and pry the hood open.) The switch was right there, held in place by two screws in the door frame. I received the part I ordered the next day, on the simple ground delivery. I replaced the door switch, closed the lid, tighten everything down. Problem solved for $15!
