Pulled front panel off, popped off the old switch, popped on the new switch. Good to go.
Actualy finding the square bit driver was the hardest part of the ordeal.. After that simply removed back panel (3 Screws) removed the existing switch, removed the three wires that went to switch, reinstalled them on new switch, reinstalled new switch into housing and replaced bac panel. Couldnt get any easier! Total time 5 minutes. ...No Brainer!
Imagine that!! Move 3000 miles from home to home and after 90 days in storage, we finally get our things. First the washer, then the dryer. Test, no water, okay...Open valves. It's like magic. Hmmm. Plug the dryer in. No sound, not a peep. Turn the start switch one more time, crack-crack, the knob falls in my hand. Ordered the part and got in 2 days. A few star bolts to remove, unplug 3 wires and presto, it works like magic. Thanks!!!
I removed the three screws that hold the front switch cover to the backing plate. I then slid the front cover to the right and pulled it out and forward. I marked all the wires and removed them. Now the front cover is free. starting from the left i removed the knobs and the switches. The switches have a tab on them and they twist out of their socket. The front cover plate was also broken so I replaced it. In the new front cover plate I installed the switches starting from the right. When I got to the start switch I installed a new switch and knob.I then installed the rest of the knobs. then I installed the wires and put the tabs in their place and slid the cover plate to the left and installed the three screws.I then tested it and it worked great .
I pulled the panel off of the dryer, screwed the part back on the correct wires, replaced the panel.
Losened four hex screws to open up control panel assembly, removed and replaced threee wires from switch with new swithch, re-assembled control panel. Removed old bulb and replaced with new one. All worked well.
