Switch on door fell apart

Finding the obvious was the tough part. Nothing worked, so blamed the power source. Traced the electricity through to the door switch with some help. That took the longest part. Ordered the part on line with ground delivery. It came in less than 24 hrs. Put it in and we were back in business.

Broken shut-off door switch

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.

Broken door switch

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!

Door cut off switch was broken

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!

Dryer would not turn on and we discovered that the switch was broken off and too short..

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 would not turn on.

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!

Broken door switch

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!
