Dryer kept running when door was open and dryer light went out

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!

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.

We followed the instructions on the video step by step. The repairs was very easy. I'm glad I did not pay the repair person 4x the amount I spent on just parts and delivery. DIY was the best option especially compared to how much money we saved.

Dryer door would not close and latch on both catches w/o pushing them shut individually.

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.

Dryer stopped working.

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!

This was my first dryer repair. The only difficulty I had was figuring out how the belt tensioner was set up with the belt. The old belt broke so I didn't know how it was suppose to work. Anyway, it took a few minute to figure out that one end of the bracket was a "spring" that allowed it to flex a long ways! Pretty easy job.

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.
