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!

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!

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 am a 75 year old woman who always had servicemen do the repairs that needed to be done in my home. However, living on Social Security I needed to reduce my expenses. I watched the video of how to replace the part and determined I could follow them easily. Within a short time the door switch was installed and the clothes dryer started working at the push of the on button.

For the door switch: I watched the supplied video first. Unplugged the dryer from the electrical outlet. Lifted lid to lint filter and removed 2 screws. Then wedged a putty scraper between the top lid and the front of the dryer, about an inch from each edge and pushed the scraper in and then up to loosen the catch. Did this on both ends. Lifted the lid and then opened the dryer door and removed 2 scews to the door switch. Then I pried off the plug from the door switch. There is a small tab in the center on each side you have to press down to get the plug apart. I installed the new door switch by pushing the two plug ends together and then put the door switch in the opening where the old one was and screwed it back on. I closed the lid and screwed the 2 screws back in by the lint filter opening. For the Push to Start Switch: I removed the top rear cover with the 1/4 nut driver. Pulled off the knob on the front side of the dryer. Pushed down on the tab that was at the top of the switch housing from the inside of the dryer and then had to turn it a little so it would fit thru the opening. Then I unplugged it and got the new switch and plugged it together and inserted it in the opening and turned it about a quarter turn and pressed it in a little until the tab was secured. Put the knob back on and then screwed the back cover back on. Good to go. Works like a charm. Was very easy to repair and I am a woman, so now anyone can do it. :)

The dryer would tumble but no heat.

I watched to replacement video from the website and followed. I did use the tip of a small knife to get the connector to come loose on the old switch. It was a really easy repair.
