I followed the repair instruction video from the web site and the repair went just like the video. Before I viewed the video, I didn't even imagine I could make this repair myself. The replacement switch was exactly the same as the original from the factory. Everything went well and it was a pleasant experience. Our dryer is working just fine now.

The door switch was not clicking on & off & I thought that was the problem. Went on line to find out how to get the switch out. I then removed the switch got the part # & ordered the new switch. The switch was sent by Fed Ex & delivered the day after I ordered it, I installed it the same day & the dryer is now operating.

Dryer would not turn off when door was opened. Also the light was not working. The cause, per your website said over 70% of the time, this was due to a broken door switch.

Dryer stayed on when door opened/would not start

My dryer started staying on when I opened the door to check the clothes, which I adapted to. Over the next few weeks, the dryer would not start at all. The website was very helpful in determining the possible parts needed to make the repair. The video shown was spot on and very helpful with its instructions on access to the part and replacing the part. The most time it took for me was cleaning behind the dryer and trying to remove the existing switch. I kept trying to squeeze the tabs on each side to get it past the tab and that wasnt working for me. Finally I took a small flat screwdriver and gently lifted the plastic on the switch up over the tab and that allowed me to pull and remove the switch easily. The whole time from start to finish for me was 45 minutes. Not bad for a 50 year old lady :) I have to say that this whole process has giving me alot of confidence in making basic appiance repairs. I have my partsselect.com magnet proudly displayed on my dryer and will not hesitate to use them again in the future.
