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 suddenly stopped running as if no power.

After reading on line that the door switch fixed the described problem 48% of the time I decided to order a door switch first. Very easy to follow the video instructions that were on line. In less than 15 minutes my dryer was working again.

Door switch was not working. Knocking noise when drying.

I had never tackled a job of this kind. It took me a little longer than it should because I was being very careful. Next time it will be easier and faster. The instructions that came with the parts was fantastic. I will be ordering from this site any time I have an appliance to repair. In the past I would have bought a new one. Saved a bunch of Bucks and works like new.

Dryer will not shut off when the door was open and light did not work.

Disconnect Dryer. Remove Screws of lint trap (2). Slide Dryer Top (Cover) and push up to disengage the plastic clamps. Remove the two screws of the old switch (located inside the door panel - upper right side). Disengage the old switch and fasten the new one. Repeat steps backwards to tight new switch and place the dryer cover.

The dryer light didn't work and the dryer wouldn't stop when I opened the door during a cycle.

I followed Steve's instructions from the video. 1. Unplug dryer. 2. Remove lint catcher. 3. Unscrew the two screws there and put screws to one side. 4. Release catches holding top of dryer and put top of dryer back against the wall. 5. Open dryer door and remove two screws holding the door switch that needed replacing, putting screws into the dryer. Remove switch. 6. Put in new dryer switch and put two screws back in to hold it. 7. Replace top of dryer, making sure catches are secure. 8. Put two screws back into lint filter area. 9. Replace lint filter. 10. Put plug back into the wall. Voila! The dryer light works and the dryer stops when I open the door during the cycle.

When the dryer door was opened the drum would not stop and the light inside was out.

First I diconnected the power to the dryer and removed the plug from the wall outlet. I then removed the two screws holding the lint vent on the top of the dryer. I used a putty knife to lift up the top. Then I opened the door and removed the two screws which held the door switch in place on the front of the dryer. After disconnecting the 3wire switch with two pliers (one for holding the switch and the other for holding the connector) I connected the new door switch. Finally, I put the screw back on the front, lowered the dryer top and reinserted the two screws for the lint vent. I plugged the dryer in, turned on the power and tested it for function.

Important if your dryer has the lint filter inside the drum...

then the video will not show you how to get the top off. It's very easy once you know where the clips and or screws are located. On my model, I used a putty knife on the bottom of the control panel edges. The panel will then rotate up. Then remove the 3 screws that hold on the top panel. Then slide the top panel out and up. Then you can follow the video to separate the electrical connector and 2 screws to remove the switch. Watch a video that show different techniques for different models.
