Starter switch was broke.

The repair would have been extremely easy, if only the part was correct. The original starter switch was discontinued-WE4M402, which had 4 prongs to connect to my dryer's 4 electrical wires. The manufacturer substituted a new part-WE4M519, which has only 3 prongs. PartSelect suggested I contact GE and ask what I should do to properly connect the starter switch. The GE help was totally useless, just repeating that the original part was discontinued and a new substitute part was issued; they could not provide any information as to how to install a switch that previously required 4 electrical wires but now only provides for 3 electrical wires. Of course GE would be happy to schedule a service call and have a repairman come out.

Start switch was defective

First thing I did was find out the model and serial #'s of the dryer. I went to a major store to see if they had the part, found out that it had to be ordered and mailed to me. I decided to do it myself, I found your website and I ordered the part. I saved $10.00 by doing this. The part was very easy to remove and install. I just had to remove a small clamp that held the part on to the machine and make sure the 3 wires were secured after I installed the new part. Thank you!

Timer knob skipped everywhere & dryer always ran when timer was on

It turns out the back of my dryer timer knob was cracked, so everytime I would turn it it would just slip to any setting/time. This was just the matter of pulling out the knob & pushing in the new one. The other issue I had was my dryer would always run without having to start it. This is because the rotary "start" switch was bad. It just took a philips screwdriver to take the backsplash off the dryer to replace the switch. So easy my wife or kids could've done this!!

Dryer would start automatic without using start switch

Remove top control panel, disconnected wire from old switch to new switch (remover 1 wire at time so it would not get mixed up)twisted old switch out inserted new switch and replaced control panel now works like it should. I thought it might would be a safety issue is why I replaced it
