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!

The door kill switch was not stopping the dryer when the door was opened.

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 would not start

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.

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!

Dryer would not turn on.

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.

Door switch was broken

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.

Dryer would not stop when door is opened

First I removed the two screws to remove the lid of the dryer. I then detached the 3 wires from the old switch assembly part. I then removed the two screws from inside the dryer which holds the switch assembly. I replaced the old switch with the new one, attached the 3 wires and replaced all screws. It was a simple process.

Door switch had broken off and interior bulb not working

I first checked the owner's manual an on line documentation from the manufacturer on how to change the door switch on the dryer but found nothing. First step: Turn off breaker to dryer. I then popped the lid of the dryer and could see that the switch was accessible from the top. I was pleasantly surprised to see the parts arrive within 2 days with the lowest cost standard shipment. I loosened the 2 screws holding the switch, unplugged the modular clip, replaced switch, resecured with screws and dropped dryer lid back in place. Interior bulb was busted up, I removed cover plate, base and broken glass, seated replacement bulb, reattached cover and turned breaker back on. Dryer switch and bulb are working again. You sent me exactly what I needed and fast. Thanks for the quick turn around!

My dryer would not come on. It worked fine the last time I had used it.

Open the lint door, take out the two screws with a philips screwdriver. Pop up the dryer top with a flat screwdriver. Unscrew the two screws holding the door switch assembly with a philips screwdriver. Unplug old door switch assembly and replace with new one and screw two screws back into place. Push top of dryer back down and replace the two screws inside the lint door. I am a single mom of five, by the way and it was so easy even I could do it all by myself. I have been an office admin/clerk for over twenty years and I am just recently going to college to earn an associates degree in nursing, so I am definitly no mechanic.

Wouldn't come on

This was my Mother's dryer. It wouldn't come on. After checking the switch in the breaker box and eliminating that, I went over and jiggled the door switch assembly. It was just loose and didn't click. After figuring out what was wrong with it, came home and ordered the part. I read a couple of the stories others had sent in to my husband. When the part came in, I asked him if he needed the instructions printed out. He said no it sounded pretty simple to him. He and my son went over and they were done in 5 minutes. however, it took another 10 minutes to take the door off to retrieve the screw my son dropped during the repair!
