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.

I got the parts & a friend did the repair. He removed the "cover" from the top of the dryer to install the new timer. He "plugged" it back in, put the cover back with the screw driver & replaced the knobs & the dryer was good to go. It was much easier than I thought it would be. Getting the parts from you guys was awesome - the delivery was so speedy. If I ever need parts for older appliances that I cannot find at a hardware store, I will most definitely order from you guys.
I ordered a selector knob and it was delivered in a short amount of time. I wasn't sure if it was the right one when I ordered it, but my husband just put it right on the dryer. He said it was perfect. Thank you PartSelect!
Opened panel, bent retainer tab, took off wires. Took out switch, put in new switch, replaced wires and knob and plugged it in. Off she goes. PS, how the hell did you get that part to me in less than 24 hours??? Thanks guys.
That happened because the on/off selector nob broke, so I instructed my wife to use a small pair pliers to turn the stem as a work around until I could get to it (6 mos). It eventually broke off. I called a repair service that charges $90 to look at it, but cannot estimate the whole job. The dilemma is that the dryer is over five years old, so a repair costing more than a few hundred dollars is not as reasonable as buying a new dryer. What to do? I ordered the parts and diagrams on the internet. They arrived two days later. The dryer is jammed into a narrow space, so to see the two screws in the back, I needed a small mirror on telescoping wand. To get at the broken switch, I needed unscrew two "star" screws and remove the control panel facing. Not Phillips head, not a common slot head. This star screw is hard to find. I finally located it in the fastener section. I bought a bit that fit my stubby ratchet screw driver. I had to use the stubby screw driver because it was such a cramped space. I finally got at the switch, loosened one screw (hex head) and replaced the two wires on clips - no solder needed. Got a kiss and a squeeze from the missus and a load of clean clothes.
Removed broken knob. Pushed new knob on shaft. Worked great.
Ordered new knob from you people and simply replaced borken knob.
After finding a matching knob for the broken one on my dryer, I ordered it from this website and within days had my dryer working like new again. Just slipped it on and that was it. No more using pliers to start the dryer. Couldn't have been easier.
removed top panel of dryer, then removed the outer panel where the door is. glued new drum glides on and now it works great
Check on internet on how to use a putty knife to remove the front panel (slip it into the crack between the top lid and front panel). Then you can see the straps that are broke, figure out which screws to remove to gently lift the top lid to get at the pieces holding the straps in. Pretty simple, just remember to unplug the machine before starting.
Removed the screws from the back of the control panel. Unplugged the old timer assembly and the timer knob. Plugged in the new timer assembly and put the timer knob on. Put the back panel back on and screwed it back on. Very simple. The dryer now works like new. It has instant heat right away and everytime it used. The selector knob was also installed by just slidding it on. I absolutely love this website...it's save me so much money in having to pay someone else to fix it. :)
Pull out old, insert new.
Pulled the old knod off and put the new knob on.
