missing male door catch

  • Difficulty: Really easy

After installing the new door catch, the door still wouldn't stay closed; the children had been using the door in the horizontal position as a stepladder, and consequently warped the door. I bent the door back to its original shape more or less and now it stays shut.

Dryer would either not turn on or not turn off. Door switch would not click.

I followed the video instruction found on www.partselect.com. I removed 2 screws from the exhaust filter area. Then used a putty knife and a screwdriver to pop the top off its 2 front (hidden) plastic snaps (see video). Then disconnected the switch and unscrewed it. I replaced it with the new one and closed the unit. This was the easiest repair ever. The video instructions were perfect and showed all the needed tricks. It took 5 minutes (exactly). The only tricky part was unsnapping the electrical connection to the broken switch (take an extra 10 seconds to avoid breaking the connector). Probably saved me between $150 (repair man in our area) and $550 (replacement unit). I love this site. It help me diagnose the problem, identify the defective part, provided a diagram & installation video, and sold the part. Shipping was lightning fast, the part arrived in 36 hours. Thank you Part Select.

The repair on replacing the clothes dryer belt went great. Not only did Part Select send me the correct belt at a great price .. the helpful hints that other people gave was most helpful. The only glitch was when I was pushing the tensioner wheel to get the belt around the pulley it slipped and the spring came off. The instructions/tip of taking the drum out and how to replace it came in handy when I had to get the spring back into place. The belt finally went on but there was a slight twist in it by the tensioner wheel. Again the tip I got with my e-mail helped as I manually turned the drum and was able to right the belt. Kudos to the tips I received and the confidence I could do the job myself!!!!

Had a hard time at first trying to figure out how to place the pulley wheel that you place the belt around, it holds it in place so to speak, was getting very frustrated came upstairs went on line to your web site and lo & behold there was a video on how to do it, I watched that video (thanks Steve) and went back down cellar and had the belt on in less than 5 mins and everything is working fine. Thanks for all your help Dan
