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.

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.

Door switch broken

IMPORTANT: Before you begin the repair, move the dryer to gain access to the power cord and disconnect it. 1. Remove lint screen from top of dryer. 2. Remove the two screws exposed by removing the lint screen. 3. Insert slotted (flat) screwdriver from front of dryer into separation between top and each side and use it to pry the top away from each side clamp. 4. The top will then lift up like the hood of a car. With the "hood" up, you can see the switch that is engaged when the dryer door is closed. It'll look just like the one you bought. 5. Disconnect the switch. You may need a couple of small flat screwdrivers to separate the switch from the wiring. This was the hard part for me. 6. Open the dryer door and use a medium Phillips head screwdriver to remove the two screws that hold the switch in place. 7. Fit the new switch into the bracket on the door and use the old screws to tighten it down. 8. Plug the new switch in to the wiring. 9. Close the "hood." 10. Snap the two sides of the top of the dryer into place. 11. Replace the two screws hat hold the top of the dryer to the vent (don't over-tighten.) 12. Replace dryer vent. 13. Plug in the dryer. 14. Move it back in lace. 15. That's all, folks!

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.

Dryer keeps running and no light when door opened

Watch the video first. 1.) To open dryer top- remove screws, it pulls forward and up, prop up lid. 2.) Unscrew door switch from front, watching which way it inserts. Screw in new switch same way. 3.) Use a tiny screw driver and loosen old switch plug all around edges- it then slips right off. Slide on new one and it will lock on the little lock tab. Make a note which color wire is on the pointed side of plug- mine was white and put new one on the same. 4.) Test and replace dryer top. FOUR EASY STEPS, 15 MINUTES REPAIR TIME, I RECEIVED MY PART FROM PART SELECT IN 2 DAYS= UNBELIEVABLE!!! EASY and YOU SAVE A FORTUNE!

Watched the video but realized my dryer was a little different removed bottom front panel to expose area to remove thermal fuse. Checked for continuity, found that there wasn't any. Ordered part and replaced it, fired right up!!

no heat

pretty simple fix not much to it. If you are familiar with electrical work a dryer is just about as basic as it gets. Thermal fuse was bad, swapped it out and up and running again. It took me longer to get the dryer pulled out and cleaned up, than it did to replace the fuse. Wow was it diry back there!

Replace thermal fuse

This was so easy.On Parts Select I looked through the options of what might be wrong when my dryer stopped working. After ruling out any power problems and checking the door switch I moved onto the next possibility which was the thermal fuse. Although I did not have the equipment to check the old fuse to see if it was still functional, I took a chance and ordered the new thermal fuse for my model # dryer. At a total of around $20 (about 2/3 of that was expedited shipping at my choice) it was worth it to me to give this a try before calling a repairman for what might be a bigger and more expensive problem. The fuse came within 48 hours and I logged back onto Part Select to watch the very simple video of how to install. I removed the six screws from the back panel of my drier,located the old theremal fuse, removed the one screw securing it, disconnected the 2 wires from the old thermal fuse (which looked a little browned around the edges)and reattached the 2 wires to the new thermal fuse in the same manner. I then reattached the new fuse with the one screw and put the back panel back on my dryer. Set the time, and pressed the start button and it fired right up. So happy I didn't have to pay $200 plus for this simple repair. Trust me when I say you can do this yourself. Very straight forward and simple installation. Good Luck!

Dryer stopped drying

We had initially ordered the wrong parts, but I called them to send one of the parts back. While I was on the phone with the rep, we ordered what I thought would be the right part. By this time I had been without a dryer for 5 days. It was about 4 in the afternoon. I asked the rep if we could possibly get the part the next day, and she politely stated that she didn't think so. But, the very next afternoon, the part was sitting at my door! I replaced the part easily while watching the you-tube on their website, and had the dryer running like new again in about 10 minutes! And I am a woman! I saved $300 instead of buying a new dryer. We have ordered from Partsselect before, and will continue in the future. I would recommend them to anyone who has any kind of appliance repair issue.

The dryer would heat up briefly and spin cold endlessly.

I removed the back cover on the dryer using a nutdriver, disconnected and removed the thermal (2 leads that are not-polarity sensitive), unmounted the cycling thermostat and transfered all 3 leads one by one as to not mix them up, installed, replaced cover and done. This did NOT solve the problem as no changes were noted. The only other possibility at this point is replacing the gas coils, or the entire gas assembly. The dryer still ignites but turns off about 20 minutes later and won't reignite unless the machine is left alone for about 30 minutes.
