The dryer would not stop running when you open the door

After watching Part Select video. I simply followed the instructions. Make sure when you put the switch, the level on the switch is pointing toward the door. The actual repair time was less than 15 minutes. I did it once, then I did it a second time to show my wife how simple the job was. This really a simple job.

Dryer door not fully engaging

Our lint filter is inside. The hardest was getting the lid off. You have to unscrew the control console from the back then unscrew the remaining piece on the front then slide the top forward to open. Unsscrew the 2 screws inside the door to remove the door latch assembly. Its tough to pull the assembly off, we pried w pliers then quickly attached the new one, put in place, replace the 2 screws, slide the top back on and reattach the control console. Took about 45 min total. Be sure to unplug first!

CustomerKen from Cedar Park TX

Switch no longer had a spring action

The hardest part was deciding how the get the top cover lifted. My 7 year old son, who is in the cub scouts, wanted to give the repair work a try. I helped him unsnap the two lid clips and the switch connector. My son unscrewed the old switch and installed the new switch. We then had to vacuum up the enormous amount of lint, paper, and misplaced socks that were behind the washer and dryer so that Mom would be happy.

Dryer would not stop when door is opened

First I removed the two screws to remove the lid of the dryer. I then detached the 3 wires from the old switch assembly part. I then removed the two screws from inside the dryer which holds the switch assembly. I replaced the old switch with the new one, attached the 3 wires and replaced all screws. It was a simple process.

My dryer would not come on. It worked fine the last time I had used it.

Open the lint door, take out the two screws with a philips screwdriver. Pop up the dryer top with a flat screwdriver. Unscrew the two screws holding the door switch assembly with a philips screwdriver. Unplug old door switch assembly and replace with new one and screw two screws back into place. Push top of dryer back down and replace the two screws inside the lint door. I am a single mom of five, by the way and it was so easy even I could do it all by myself. I have been an office admin/clerk for over twenty years and I am just recently going to college to earn an associates degree in nursing, so I am definitly no mechanic.

CustomerPatricia from Ellabell GA

Wouldn't come on

This was my Mother's dryer. It wouldn't come on. After checking the switch in the breaker box and eliminating that, I went over and jiggled the door switch assembly. It was just loose and didn't click. After figuring out what was wrong with it, came home and ordered the part. I read a couple of the stories others had sent in to my husband. When the part came in, I asked him if he needed the instructions printed out. He said no it sounded pretty simple to him. He and my son went over and they were done in 5 minutes. however, it took another 10 minutes to take the door off to retrieve the screw my son dropped during the repair!

Dreyer wouldn't turn on

I noticed that the switch toggle that the dreyer door engages when the dreyer door is closed was broken off. I took two screws in the upper back area of the dreyer and and two screws where the lint trap cover is located and lifted the top part of the dreyer up and exposed the switch. It had a part number on it so I decided to see if I could find the part online. I googled whirlpool dreyer parts and to my amazement it had a section that said enter part number and I did so. Then came a picture of the part which was exactly the broken part. I ordered the part on a saturday night and the part was at my door on tues. mid-day. Wow how easy it was. Thankssaved me money and headaches.

CustomerMike from La Vergne TN

Door switch had broken off and interior bulb not working

I first checked the owner's manual an on line documentation from the manufacturer on how to change the door switch on the dryer but found nothing. First step: Turn off breaker to dryer. I then popped the lid of the dryer and could see that the switch was accessible from the top. I was pleasantly surprised to see the parts arrive within 2 days with the lowest cost standard shipment. I loosened the 2 screws holding the switch, unplugged the modular clip, replaced switch, resecured with screws and dropped dryer lid back in place. Interior bulb was busted up, I removed cover plate, base and broken glass, seated replacement bulb, reattached cover and turned breaker back on. Dryer switch and bulb are working again. You sent me exactly what I needed and fast. Thanks for the quick turn around!
