I removed the top of the dryer and removed the faulty switch form it's mating connector. The simply removed two Phillips Head round headed screws with a screw driver and replaced the part all within 15 minutes. However, I also heard that it wasn't drying properly so after making sure my dryer vent was free of any lint build up, I removed the back of the dryer. Once removed, I completely cleand any dust from inside the dryer, then checked all of the visable wire connections and then went to PartSelect's fantastic web-site. Her they catagorize the top 7 reasons that could cause the problem (in my case) not drying and thenproceed to give you an idea of the most likely cause by publishing the failure rat in per centage values in decending order, they also provide schematics and the on top of all of that...they provide mini-videos not only showing you wher the parts are located but the step by step instructions on how to remove them and replace them. After all of this, I took my ohm meter and actually removed all of the 7 parts suggested, cleaned them up, ran a continuity check on each part and found them all in working order. Replaced the parts and checked the heat and it was back to normal!! There must have be a lose connection causing the problem. But, I can guarantee that the next time I have an appliance problem...I'll again be calling on PartSelect.com. They are awesom and they will be highly recommended to anyone I know that is experiencing problems. I have not ever seen a web-site that was so complete in excellent service. And there prices and shipping time speaks for itself. They are great!!

I'm a great grandmother. When I realized that the dryer had a problem I went online to find the part. I found it on your site - so easy to find there. I told my husband that I could pay a repairman $75 for a house call and, probably, $25-$40 for the part and labor or I could order from you and have it working in 30 minutes. He took the latter choice. It was a good one! It cost me less than $25 for the part and labor and 13 minutes to have it working like new. We are both pleased with the result. The repair was so easy. I just watched the video on the site and followed it step-by-step. I will recommend your site to all my friends and my 2 sons who are just as handy! Thanks so much.

missing male door catch

  • Customer: Daniel from Lomita CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

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.

  • Difficulty: Really easy

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Disconnected power to the dryer, Opened the top of the dryer by sliding a thin scraper underneath the top on the front of the dryer and the pushed the top of the dryer up. I then disconnected the wire on the switch to isolate the switch from the wire in the dryer. I then removed the switch by unscrewing the two screws on the switch and then replaced it with the new switch. I then reconnected the wire to the wire in the dryer.

According to your site, we purchased the Door Switch and the Thermal Fuse as these two parts had the highest percent of "what could be wrong". Figured we would send one back if we didn't use it. The Door Switch was replaced first and the dryer worked! Two days later, the dryer stopped working again. Still had the Thermal Fuse so we changed that out. The dryer worked again! Both parts arrived sooner than excepted! Both parts were simple to replace! The diagrams were very handy. The picture of the parts assisted greatly and the video's were the icing on the cake! VERY glad that we ordered both! Will recommend to everyone! PartSelect is bookmarked should we ever need your assistance in the future!

Broken Dyrer Door Cut-off Switch

We bought a slightly used dryer, which kept running when the door was open. Trying to get the lid off, I broke one of the clips that held the top on. I gave up, and went to the internet. PartSelect made it easy to find my model and a list of all of the parts. They also had an on-line video that showed me the location of the secret screws that I couldn't find that led me to breaking the clip. After watching the video, the job was insanely easy! I was also surprised that their web site estimated the delivery of the parts at 1.8 days. I figured that this was an average, but the parts actually showed up at my door 1.8 days after I ordered them!

Easy, screw driver (flathead) popped up two clamps on each side of top. maybe 3" from each side. Propped lid up with I think I used a full roll of paper towels, part was inside top left, unscrewed old,used small hook tool to unplug old, put new checked to see if it worked and bang lower top pop in place.NOTE : I am pretty good with fixing little things like this.. PLease UNPLUG for safety first then take time and be happy when you save $ on doing it yourself.
