Defective timer on an electric clothing dryer
It took longer to find the part online than it did to replace it. 6 removed screws w/ a nut driver, 3 electrical quick disconnect plugs and swapping the knob from the old timer. Total time to repair this part myself, under 6 minutes.
The reason I needed to swap the part out was that the dryer would turn on, but the timer portion was broken and the timer would no longer count down and turn off on its own.
I'm very happy with the price and speed of shipping by Parts Select. They were about $55 dollars cheaper than some of their online competitors for this part and the part arrived within two days.

Dryer did not dry clothes due to no heat
First removed the power from the dryer for safety. Removed the back of panel. After testing to see if there was continuity in the heating element and replacing all the thermostats in a previous repair. The switch was the next thing to replace. Removed several screws holding the switch in place then disconnected the cables one at a time and placed onto the new switch. The cables plugs are also unique in the desgin which would enable a person not to mess up if all the wire detached at one time. Then reattached the switch back into the dryer, then attached the back panel.
