Question:

Im replacing the door switch assembly for my dryer and I know I have the right part for my model bc I confirmed it with you first. However when I removed my old switch assembly it has two wires, but this replacement part has three. Whats going on and will this change anything?

Lindsay
Answer:

Hi Lindsay, the third wire will not make a difference. It is for the drum light and will not be in the harness. This part has been redesigned by the manufacturer to work with several different types of dryers, which is why they now include the third wire. I hope this helps!

Dryer would not start

I simply removed the back panel and and took 2 photos showing the wiring I planed on disconnecting. I discovered the door switch was faulty. Ordered that part and the thermal fuse just in case. Both arrived in 2 days as promised. I discovered in my email confirming order the two short videos plainly showing the step by step procedure to replace these 2 items. It took less than 30 minutes to replace, put the panel back, plug in and it started with no problems. I was ready to scrap this machine and buy a new one - spent 30 bucks and saved over 400. Because of the fast delivery and the great online videos, this DIY project was unbelievably east. Thank you All smiles here.

Dryer continued to run when the door was opened.

An online video provided perfect instructions. Unplug the dryer. Remove the Lint filter and see two Phillips screws located on the top of the machine, then remove the screws. Then slide a stiff, thin putty knife under the right front corner between the top and the front panel. The clip inside has small feet holding it in place, so you need to angle the putty knife up slightly, then push in towards the back of the dryer while lifting up on the top. The corner will lift away from the front. Repeat the process on the other front corner. Now lift up the top that is hinged at the rear. I used a 24" 1 x 2 board to keep the top up. Open the front door and remove the two screws that hold the switch in place then unplug the switch on the inside of the dryer and remove. Plug in the new switch (2 or 3 wires may be present, but it doesn't matter). Attach the new switch using the two screws you removed. Lower the lid and tap each front corner to reengage the clips, then put the two screws back in at the lint filter. Replace the filter, plug the dryer back in, and you're done. I honestly think that it took longer to type these instructions than it took to do the actual repair.

Door switch on/off broken

I followed your online video of how to install the new part . I did have an issue getting the top cover off the machine - the video said to pop off at tabs but no such existed- I had to remove 4 screws on the back of the dryer & lift top off - no big deal Then I had some trouble getting the old part unplugged - required two pliers either side to pull apart- VERY securely fastened. Otherwise just so so simple. FIXIT housewife!

Dryer would not run

Once I had determined that the door switch was broken (the black actuating arm was broken) I ordered a replacement. The procedure to replace it is the reverse of removal of the broken part: unplug the appliance to begin. There are 2 screws that hold the filter frame to the top of the dryer; these are removed and set aside for reuse. The top of the dryer can now be pulled up to gain access to the door switch. Make sure you leave enough space behind the dryer to prop the top up without letting it go backwards. Disconnect the wiring harness plug for the door switch and the unscrew the switch. There are 2 screws accessed from the upper right corner of the open door. Replace the switch, guiding the 2 screws into the mounting holes of the part, remembering to not over torque the screws, connect the wiring harness, close the lid, replace the 2 filter housing screws, plug the dryer back in to the electrical outlet and you should be good to go.

Dryer was not heating

Followed the instructions on the video. I unplugged the dryer and pulled it from the wall, I unscrewed the back of the dryer to look for the element that needed to be replaced. Because my dryer is a little older the wire were a little rusty and hard to remove. After removing the the old element I added the new one. Screwed the back back on and did several test runs and sure enough it was working like new again.
