I followed the video. Removed two screws by the lint filter, lifted up the 2 sides to the top of the dyer, removed the two screws by the door switch. It was that easy. The hard part came when I tried to remove the old switch that took the most time. I used the butter knife, since it was very flat I was able to lift it off. Put in the new switch, put all the parts back together again and it worked just fine. Thank you, PartSelect, I will come to you first. You saved me at least $150.00....

The dryer would tumble but no heat.

I watched the guy repair it on the video provided when i searched for the part. He made it look very easy and he explained it step by step.

Dryer was here when we moved in. The light never worked and the dryer would not stop when you opened the door. Eventually the dryer would not turn on at all.

Followed the youtube video and it was very helpful. The repair was very simple. Just remove the lint trap, then the two screws under there, then use the putty knife to pop the two front corner clips. Disconnect power before you do anything of course..... once its all disconnected, you will see the switch. 2 Screws hold it in and then it unclips. Reverse to reassemble.

Dryer would not shut down when door is opened.

Removed power (un plugged), removed two screws on back top of cover allow top to lift up on installed holders., used screw driver at right front and left front to push in the locks on the plastic holders and lifted top and held up with board. Removed two screws holding the switch and disconnect it from the connector and installed the new switch, and connected to connector back up, removed board, lowered top aligned with the two alignment clips and pressed down to lock in place. Replaced the two screw removed from back, plugged back in the power and test the repair.

I googled the main reasons why a dryer wont start. Ordered the suggested parts and went through them one by one. Replaced thermal fuse as it was said this was a main reason it wont turn on. Kept the new fuse in as I believe it was the original. Then I went to the door switch when I compared them I knew I had found the cause. I replace the door switch then plugged it back in and success. I took it a step a time. .

Functioning Switch is normally closed in the "light on" with door open and normally open in. the "tumble motor off" position. It failed in the opposite position; (dryer motor would run with door open or shut) but could not switch on the light when door was open. Switch was stuck in the failed posit

Power off by removing plug from wall outlet. Remove two Phillips screws under lint screen filter door. (careful you don't drop them down the filter housing) Pry upper lid loose at both front corners and elevate and retain the lid vertically. Separate old 3 wire switch connector splice halves at upper right housing corner. Remove two Phillips screws at upper right corner of outer front doorway which hold switch. Install new switch with those two screws. Re-connect the connector splice halves; they are keyed for one direction. Close down lid. Plug in power cord.
