Broken start switch

Screwdriver on right and left of the top to pry it off the top panel spring clips.
rotated the switch assembly by hand from the back to remove it from the front panel.
removed the connectors and connected them to the new switch.
Put the new switch in and rotated it to mount it to the front panel.

Thank you for your help. I ordered a switch and a knob for a GE dryer.

A neighbor had this washer and a dryer sitting in their driveway—getting rid of them because of a broken switch and knobs.

A repair man told them it would be $250.

My neighbor gave the washer and dryer to me for free and I gave them to a single Mom who was in need.

The repair took me 10 min and cost me less than $75 thanks to your web site help.

Here’s a tip for owners of a GE Profile washer and dryer—The plastic knobs are weak and split where they connect with the switch. Pull them off and wrap (6-8 times) the outside diameter of the connection part of the knob with electrical tape.
