The video instructions here were exact and very clear. I replaced the door switch but that did not fix the issue. I used the instant repair man tool and found that the next most likely part to have an issue was a the thermal fuse. After replacing that part which took 10 minutes... It works! My part was shipped to my home very very quickly. totally worth it.

Door switch failure prevented drier operation. This could be confirmed by the fact that the interior light was also not working.

Pulled drier away from wall six inches. Pulled the plug for the drier power cord out of the wall socket and hooked it up so it would not fall down behind the drier, thereby knocking loose the vent hose. Removed two screws from front of filter housing opening (right of drier top). Lifted up drier top (lid) from the front and secured it in the up position using a stout strap with hooks on both ends. A prop is not a safe way to hold up the lid. Lid is held down only with mildly stubborn friction catches. Door switch was seen looking down along the inside of the drier front on the right side. There was nothing else in that area to cause confusion. Opened drier door and removed two vertical screws that secure the door switch to the front panel of the drier. Lifted the now-free switch and unplugged it from the wire socket. Plugged in replacement switch securely. Replaced the screws securing the new switch to the front panel. Checked that all wiring was back in place and clear of the drier drum. Lowered the drier top. Replaced the screws into the filter housing. Plugged the drier in. Tested the operation of the drier. Checked out spouse's smile. IMPORTANT - Checked that drier vent hose was still firmly in place. Pushed it back in place.

I watched to replacement video from the website and followed. I did use the tip of a small knife to get the connector to come loose on the old switch. It was a really easy repair.

The Door switch on my dryer broke which stopped the dryer from turning on.

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....

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. I ordered the part from partselect.com and 12 hours later i had the part in my hand and proceeded to replace it. Instructions and delivery were amazing. Thanks to all at partselect!!!

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.

Ancient Kenmore Dryer

  • Difficulty: Difficult

Your customer service was great, but your video wasn't particularly helpful because of the extreme age of my dryer. For one thing, with these really old dryers, you don't have to slide the drum out at all; you just unscrew the front panel and slip the belt in that way. The printed diagram that came with the belt helped me figure how the belt slips through the pulley assembly, but the drawing could have been more clear. In spite of my bickering, I probably saved $50 fixing it myself.

Disconnect electric power, the top & cabinet are connected by 2 reusable locks about 4 inches from each front corner, use a thin flat putty knife or similar object, push inward on a lock while lifting gently on the front of the top piece, then let the top rest against the wall. ( a wire on each end of a safety switch for the dryer door may need disconnected) Remove a screw from each front corner of the cabinet, then pull upward on the loose front panel to access the drive motor, remove old belt. install new belt by lifting the front of the drum just high enough to allow the new belt, place groves of belt against the drum and around the motor pulley and belt tensioner, re-install cabinet front, (re-connect safety switch wires) return top and push down at cabinet locks.

Replace Drive Belt

What a pain in the butt to route the belt thru the tensioner! There's room for only one hand in there. The guys who do this for a living must have some secret. My solution was to drill a 3/16 hole thru the side, make a j-hook from 8-32 threaded rod, use that and a wing nut to pre-load the tensioner, route the belt, then slowly back off the wing nut until the belt was tight. It works. . . .

I followed instructions from video -- although the model used in the video was different, the approach was similar. Really the only difficulty was laying on my back (72 years old) and, with one hand and through feel alone (work area was not visible), getting the belt on the drive sprocket and the spring loaded wheel.
