Starter switch froze

I removed the back of the panel, unplugged the dryer, removed the two wire connections, removed the one screw that held the part in place, removed the old switch, put the new one in then followed the above procedure in reverse.

Start knob had broken a couple of years ago & used pliers to start dryer & this wore down the start switch

I removed 4 or 5 screws on the back of the compartment that holds the start switch. I removed 1 screw that held the start switch in & pulled off two wires that connected to the old start switch & connected them to the new start switch. I then put all of the screws back in and everything worked fine. Very easy repair.

Rod on rotary start switch broken, couldn't start

Took off console cover (two screws) separated back cover from console cover (4 nutscrews) pulled out two connectors from switch to be replaced and then unscrewed one nut screw. replaced with new unit and reversed processs. 5 minutes. Took another 20 minutes playing with cleaning dust, lint, and having fun restoring console to original shine. Had a lot of fun being my own repairman.

Broken knob and broken knob stem

Using the diagram on this site, I determined which parts I needed to order. The exploded diagram was really helpful, since I normally don't spend much time thinking about how my washing machine is constructed, and we bought the dryer used, so I didn't have any diagrams or manuals for it. After detaching the backsplash from the cabinet, I pulled the wiring out of the old switch unit and popped them into the new unit. I put the screws back in the same place and then put the new knob on the stem. I couldn't believe how easy it was.
