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.

I watched the video supplied at your website which showed, step by step, how to remove the old door switch and install the new one. I followed each step very carefully. The demo was excellent.

Got the info from PartSelect that the door switch might be the problem, which confirmed my suspicions (as the dryer had lately been failing to stop when the door was opened), ordered the door switch (which had arrived in good time, BTW), installed the part after figuring out that the top panel of the dryer is fixed in place with the two screws accessible in the filter door opening. Put it all back together (that is, re-fixed the top panel with the two screws I'd had to remove), plugged it in, fired it up, ascertained that the repair had been successful, expressed appropriate thankfulness to God for an easier-than-imagined repair, cracked a celebratory brewed product, and commenced working through a hefty few piles of neglected laundry.

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.

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.

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.

I used the instruction vedio on this web site. Instruction from this vedio showed; was very helpful and for a first timer took less than twenty minutes.

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 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.

First of all, your operator was patient and courtious and extremely knowlegable. They knew right away what part was required. I watched a video on youtube describing the job. When the part arrived, on time, I just did what the video told me to do and in under 30 minutes the jobwas done and the dryer works perfectly. I'll be back for sure

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!

After I got the top of the dryer open, I simply unscrewed and unplugged the old switch. Replaced it with new switch. Dryer started right up.

The door Switich on our dryer had broke, and we were using something to push the broken swich enough to get the dryer going. We could not find the piece we needed so I went to PartSelect and it was so easy finding what I needed I put in the Model number and looked and there it was. I called and ode

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...
