Broken door switch

I took out the 2 screws that are located on the top of dryer under the lint filter door. Popped up the whole top of dryer. Opened the dryer door to unscrew the 2 door switch screws. Took off the old broken door switch through the open dryer top and before replacing the new door switch completely I tested it by turning the dryer on and pressing the new switch against the button activator 2 find out if it works. When it did, I carefully put the door switch back so the dryer door can activate it properly and screwed in the 2 screws. Finally, I put the dryer top back down & fastened the last 2 screws under the lint filter door.

Received part in 3 days from ordering. I was surprised when it showed up at my front door so quickly. Less than 1/2 hour later we were drying laundry again. Very impressed with the speed of service and the price.

First removed 2 screws on lint remover vent. Used a screw driver to force up top of dryer from out front. These will require pressure to pop the top off the dryer. Once the top was up I could reach the actuator and remove the 2 screws holding it. Once removed just replaced with new actuator and bam, done. Snapped top of dryer back on and reinstalled 2 screws on lint vent and Done. Easy, no problem....Thank you PartSelect!!.

Dryer wouldn't turn on

I removed the two screws on the top by the lint catcher. Then, per information from this website, I pried up the top. I reached down into the dryer and removed the two screws on the broken door switch and replaced it with the new part. I am a recently widowed, 55 year old and was thrilled to find good advice, information and instructions on your website!! Simple as could be!

Broken door actuator spring -interposer for motor control

Followed previous comments and took 5 minutes to replace. Be careful to hold spring and switch together because easy to separate and drop. Two screws to remove for switch, two to remove for lint trap, pop the lid up and switch / spring is easy to access.

Door switch lever/latch broke

You can buy the switch AND lever/latch, but partselect had lever by itself which is all I needed. Pay attention to orienation of lever around switch when you take old latch off and attach new. Also, be careful to not drop new lever behind/beneath clothes dryer drum. Took my wife and I a while to fish it out. I have replaced heating element, and other parts. At some point it will be time for a new dryer...
