There really is not much to explain, the new knob was so simple to replace that my six year old could have done it. No tools were required and it took less than a minute to replace the new knob.
Fairly simple. removed start wwitch by rotating it out of its position. There is realy only one way to remove it and it is intuitive. The new part is simply placed n the only position that the part will fit in the panel. Once the part is locked in placed, the new part is installed. Simply take you time and think it thru.
Unplug dryer from electrical outletunscrew 4 screws back off dryer panelunscrew 2 screws each off sides that hold panelhad to get a wrench set to unscrew rotary start switch from front panel because the two sides would not come off. tilt front panel and unscrewed rotary switch with wrench. Insert and screwed in rotary switch. Place on new knob. Plugged dryer in electical outlet and tested parts. Everything worked. Place screws back in sides and back panel. Done Very easy.
Removed knob and installed the replacement.
I just put the new knob where the old one was and presto it was done. The whole process was much easier than I expected.
Ordered a new knob and replaced the broken one.
Easy. Pulled off old one slipped on new one!
plug new knob.
I simply removed the back of the dryer top and disconnected the old start switch and connected the new part. It honestly took me longer to take out the screws to remove the back plate than it did to replace the rotary start switch. It was very easy and I had a lot of confidence due to watching the Partselect instructional video on YouTube. The Partselect Customer Service woman was great too!
pulled off the old knob and replaced it with the new knob.
ordered replacement. received in two days and voila! Fixed!
Fixed both issues. Go to http://www.do-it-yourself-washing-machine-and-dryer-repair-help.com/ The videos were all the help and information I needed, no log-in is necessary, and it was super helpful to me, found everything I needed. Was hesitant to remove the drum to get to the igniter but the videos show everything and are well done.
The start knob had crack in it that was getting bigger, and we'd begun using pliers to start it. Not only was it unwieldy but I thought it would eventually strip the metal stem. Of course this was a breeze of a repair--we just slid the new knob on. But my husband had been certain that finding a replacement knob--or calling a dealing and ordering the part--would be a big deal. I said: "But let's just try on-line." We quickly found the model # inside the dryer door. We filled in the appliance info, the part popped up. I ordered it. It arrived in 2 days. It's like new.
The pictures really made it possible to determine exactly which knob was what I needed for my dryer. Thanks.
