The dryer wouldn't start

I noticed the door switch handle was flopping back and forth--no longer was tight. I popped the top up and took out the screws holding the dryer vent to the top of the dryer, so I could put the top back out of the way. I disconnected the switch wiring harness which was on the top, right of the dryer sticking through to the dryer door. I pushed down on the tab that was holding the switch tight to the wiring harness. I wrote down the model number of the dryer and the part number. I ordered the part from partselect.com--this was the easiest part of the whole process! I thought initially I would not be able to find the identical switch I needed for the old dryer that I have. It took a couple of days to get the switch in the mail. I put the new switch in the same position as the old one was. I put the screws back in the dryer vent, popped down the top of the dryer, and plugged it back in. (I had already cleaned the dryer duct work--thought that might be why the dryer didn't start. Glad I cleaned the duct, but the cleaning did not fix the problem of getting the dryer started.

Dryer stopped running

My dryer had been continuing to run when I opened the door for a couple of months. Then one day after drying 3 loads it refused to start again for the fourth. I googled the problem and found some you tube videos for replacing the door switch. I was having trouble popping the top of the dryer open and one video had the key information to push the top forward from the back. Unplugging the old switch was a bit difficult, but plugging the new on in is easy. Put everything back together and my dryer works again.

I followed the instructions just like in the YouTube video. The video was awesome! Well lighted, good audio quality, and perfectly illustrated all the steps involved. I had already tried taking the switch out, but I couldn't figure out how to release the clips on the front. The putty knife was just right. I'll definitely be using you guys for any future appliance repairs!

We usedthe instructions that PartsSelect offered. Unscrewed the top in the back of the dryer lifted it up and replaced the part. A Lot cheaper than calling a repairman...

I googled the main reasons why a dryer wont start. Ordered the suggested parts and went through them one by one. Replaced thermal fuse as it was said this was a main reason it wont turn on. Kept the new fuse in as I believe it was the original. Then I went to the door switch when I compared them I knew I had found the cause. I replace the door switch then plugged it back in and success. I took it a step a time. .

Power off by removing plug from wall outlet. Remove two Phillips screws under lint screen filter door. (careful you don't drop them down the filter housing) Pry upper lid loose at both front corners and elevate and retain the lid vertically. Separate old 3 wire switch connector splice halves at upper right housing corner. Remove two Phillips screws at upper right corner of outer front doorway which hold switch. Install new switch with those two screws. Re-connect the connector splice halves; they are keyed for one direction. Close down lid. Plug in power cord.
