This is a case of not knowing the proper tool to do the job. I went to turn on the machine and the knob broke( common on this machine). The stub of the knob fell into the machine. Thought that the access plate was put on with screws. I saw that the hole was similar to an allen hole. I couldn't get the screws out so called a repairman. He spent 10 minutes, charged me $65 and then told me that most newer appliances need a tool called a robertsons screw driver to get the screws out without stripping them. I felt like a dope, a $4 tool could have saved me $59. A word to the wise, learn what tools do the job and this won't happen to you. JT

No tools was required. Last month the knob broke on my washer. I done a Google search and parts select came up. I felt comfortable ordering online from them because of their reputation. I got the part faster than I expected....my wife was happy too!

After receiving the part, I easily replaced it. I didn't need any tools and it took less than 2 minutes to fix. Also, the dryer seems to be working better altogether. Basically, I just inserted the knob where it was before.

This repair took only about 15 seconds to complete. It just involved pushing the new knob on the selector. The provided video should give you the confidence to complete this task.. I invested $11.00 for the part. I would hate to see the cost to have a repairman come and fix this. Worth every penny

The leveling legs on my Frigidaire stackable washer & dryer were broken. They are made of plastic and while moving the unit one of the legs had broke off. I ordered two replacements from PartSelect and received them within a few days. The old legs were removed by screwing them out and then the new ones were installed. Pretty easy installation for DIY. The new legs work great.
