Dryer would not come on, inside light worked intermittently when door was opened

Unplug dryer. Open door on lint filter, remove two screws. Gently pry top of dryer in the front at each corner up with plastic or wooden wedge or screwdriver covered with cloth or tape. Remove two screws from safety switch, unplug electrical connection and remove old switch. Replace screws in new switch, snap top back in place, replace screws in lint cover, plug dryer in and go!

CustomerRICHARD from NORTH PALM BEACH FL

Broken door switch

The door switch was broken and I had the dryer model number. The part was oredered and it was an easy fix. But documents to instruct you to get the top removed for access to the switch are hard to come by...eventually i figured it out. Each Mfg. has a different way to get at the unit. A basic repair manual would help from the company but it's obvious they don't want the homeowner to do the easy fixes.

Dryer did not start, light did not work

Checked the old part by bypassing it and that verified it was the problem. Opened the front of the dryer, lower panel then mid section screwws to raise the top to expose the switch, remove the old one and replaced it with the new on, put the front panels back together and test run was good

CustomerCARL from PFLUGERVILLE TX

Switch on door fell apart

Finding the obvious was the tough part. Nothing worked, so blamed the power source. Traced the electricity through to the door switch with some help. That took the longest part. Ordered the part on line with ground delivery. It came in less than 24 hrs. Put it in and we were back in business.

Broken shut-off door switch

Hardest part of the job was figuring out how to get access to the broken part for remove and replace. Popped the top up and wa-la, I pounced upon my prey. The knife helped with parting the wire harness connector. Removed two screws, connected the new switch and replaced the two screws. Replaced the top, and done.
