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.

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.

The replacement that was ordered was a perfect fit for the worn part and merely required placement into the lint screen area. The entire procedure, from ordering the part, to installation was amazingly easy. I would not hesitate to order future parts from PartSelect.
