CustomerGreg from Lampasas TX

Knob craked and broke off the start switch

Removed all the knobs but the master washing machine control knob, then the control and cover panels by removing the two screws that held each one. Then removed the end plastic pieces to allow access to screws holding the switch onto control panel. Used pliers to pull wires off the old switch and put them back on new switch. Screwed it back in place and re-attached plastic end pieces. Re-attached the control panel, then the cover panel under the control panel.

Broken knobs on two control switches. The switches needed to be replaced.

Had to trial and error my way to getting the control panel off. The parts diagrams on this site were very helpful, but didn't tell the entire story. Started to pull the entire front dryer panel off then found that only needed to remove two panel screws to gain access to all the screws holding the control panel on. With those removed the panel came off as a unit and was easily disassembled. Screws securing the switches are easlily stripped, so be careful. Rest of job was just pulling off wiring clips and reattaching. Everything went back together easily.

CustomerRobert from Galeton PA

Dryer control switch was broken

I pulled the panel removing 4 screws then removed the switch panel by removing the two screws holding that in place. I pulled the switch panel down and removed the 2 screws holding the switch in place. I then removed the two wires connecting the switch and reinstalled everything. The whole process was less than 15 minutes.
