once I got dryer top wedged open it took about 5 minutes to unscrew and disconnect broken switch and then connect new switch and screw back into door slot! dryer turned on as soon as I closed door pressed start!!
The door switch was broken and I had the dryer model number. The part was oredered and it was an easy fix. But documents to instruct you to get the top removed for access to the switch are hard to come by...eventually i figured it out. Each Mfg. has a different way to get at the unit. A basic repair manual would help from the company but it's obvious they don't want the homeowner to do the easy fixes.
The repair was very easy after watching the videos.
Checked the old part by bypassing it and that verified it was the problem. Opened the front of the dryer, lower panel then mid section screwws to raise the top to expose the switch, remove the old one and replaced it with the new on, put the front panels back together and test run was good
this repair was very easy. just had to lift the top of the dryer up. removed the wiring harness,removed two screws that held the switch in place.installed the switch ,pluged in the wiring harness,put the top cover of the dryer back down and that was it. everything went very smooth. appox 15 minutes and the dryer was working like it was new. thanks PartSelect.
Watchhed the video offered and followed those instructions. Super easy,
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.
took a screwdriver and pryed the front of the top loose,lifted the top and supported it with a peice of wire, unscrewed two screws that held the old switch on, disconnected old switch then plugged the new one in,screwed that one back on closed the top.
Followed video instructions. Hardest part was separating electrical connectors.
watch the video it's all you need. used screwdriver to take out 4 screws. putty knife to unlock connection locks. put in new part close dryer and tighter screws. 13 mins tops with a glass of wine. love it dusty
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!
