Hardest part of the job was figuring out how to get access to the broken part for remove and replace. Popped the top up and wa-la, I pounced upon my prey. The knife helped with parting the wire harness connector. Removed two screws, connected the new switch and replaced the two screws. Replaced the top, and done.
plastic broke on door latch so replaced part & dryer works fine...also part came very quickly
Removed lint trap, and unscrewed two phillips screws, the use a flathead screwdriver and separate the top portion of the dryer. . . There are two clips that hold it down, located on both front edges of the dryer. Just pry open and it lifts easily. Prop up the top of the dryer. Unplug the door switch, then open the dryer door remove the two screws holding the switch and replace. Very easy. . . Good luck!
was easy as could be. raise lid un did connection install switch,lower lid and was done.
Very easy repair, the parts diagram made the repair very easy. Saved me allot of money!
I viewed the online repair video and repaired the dryer It was easy
The dryer switch was broken at our cabin and the phillips head screws holing the switch in would not budge! Just then a small gold UFO disc about 30 ft. in diameter landed in the yard and two little green men about 3 feet tall got out and came into the cabin!! Wow! "What is the problem, earthling?" one of the asked. "It's these damn tiny phillips head screws" I replied. "Can't get them loose." One of the aliens pulled a ray gun and blasted the screws and they fell off. I quickly finished the repair as they flew away in their ship!
I simply took 2 screws out that secure the lint screen to the dryer top. I lifted the lid to find the switch right in front. Two screws hold it in place. I removed the screws and unplugged the old switch. Then in reverse order I installed the new switch. Works fine.
Dryer refused to start. Looked at "troubleshooting" section of manual. Several options, but door switch made the most sense since opening the door had not been stopping dryer for some time.Googled for the part. Found part select. Photo looked like my door switch. Uplugged power. Removed the dryer filter screws. Pried up the top panel. Propped it open and removed the door switch (two screws and a plug. Two days later new part arrived. Installed it (two screws and plug. Pressed dryer top back down into place. Replaced two screws in filter unit. Plugged in power.Started up right away. Spent more time figuring out how to lift dryer top than in removing and replacing switch.
I watched the YouTube instructions and did the repair in that order. The repair took a little longer because I dropped one of the screws from the door area. But it didn't take long to get it out and I was successful. Yippee.
Dryer at out Bahama home quit working and with no repair men or service centers on island it had to be a do-it-yourself job. I watched the repair video, which was exptremely helpful. Unscrewed the two lint trap door philips screws, popped open the top of dryer with putty knife blade gently prying at two corners, unscrewed two little screws holding the door switch, unplugged switch carefully, plugged in new switch, put all back together, plugged dryer back in, crossed our fingers and perfect!!Dryer works great. Thanks Partselect!
When the dryer door was open, the light would not come on and the drum would not stop spinning. Eventually, the dryer completly quit functioning. We repaired it exactly as the videos and other posters suggested. It was surprisingly difficult to separate the plastic connectors - it took two people and a small flathead screwdriver to pop it apart. Put it back together, and voila! Thanks so much!
It was very simple. I watched the video on your website which showed me exactly how to remove and install the switch. It was a piece of cake. Thanks for your excellent video.
I saw on your site an email from another person who had the same problem. He identified the location of the two screws that must be removed to lift up the top (under the lid to the lint screen). There also are snap-type fasteners at each of the two front corners of the top; these are released simply by pulling up. Once the top is up, the switch assembly is easily installed by removing the old switch (two small screws on the outside of the unit on either side of the switch trigger, screwing in the new one and snapping the wiring harnesses together. The snap connector only goes together one way.
