Dryer would not stay off after door was opened and closed. Normally you have to hit the start switch again.

Unscrewed three screws on back and removed the switch and inserted the new one. There are 3 wires that clamp on the switch. Remember to unplug before doing this.

Real easy and great people to work with. Much cheaper than a technician repair.

Washing machine overflows on "cold water" setting

Repair was simple. Initially thought the problem was the Water Level pressure swith, but since water overflow was only happening when selecting cold wash & during the rinse cycle (Always cold water) the Dual Valve Selenoid replacement FIXED the problem. Took 5 minutes to replace.

Dryer would not start

I narrowed the porblem down to the rotary start switch, which is located in the top panel. It takes a hex wrench to remove the four screws holding the fron top panel in place and of course the knobs had to be removed. The switch rotates about a wuarter of a turn to come out. Label and remove the three connectors (3). It took about a week to get the replacement part which was slightly different than the original part. The good thing is it had the three prongs like the old part.. I hooked the connectors in the same configuration as the old switch, plugged the power cord back in to test and it started right up.

Wouldn't shut off

Unplug. Remove 3 knobs at front of panel. Remove 4 screws. Panel pulls forward. Remove green grounding wire to allow panel to come forward more. Pry up locking tab on switch. Turn switch to unlock from panel. Install new switch in reverse order of removal. Pull off each wire one at a time from old switch and attach to new switch. Reinstall panel and insert 4 screws. Done. My wife was so suprised that it actually worked and I fixed it in less than a day! Only took about 20 minutes. Thanks Part Select and the other repair stories that I read on your website.
