CustomerPeter from AMENIA NY

The on/off switch stem broke off

That happened because the on/off selector nob broke, so I instructed my wife to use a small pair pliers to turn the stem as a work around until I could get to it (6 mos). It eventually broke off. I called a repair service that charges $90 to look at it, but cannot estimate the whole job. The dilemma is that the dryer is over five years old, so a repair costing more than a few hundred dollars is not as reasonable as buying a new dryer. What to do? I ordered the parts and diagrams on the internet. They arrived two days later. The dryer is jammed into a narrow space, so to see the two screws in the back, I needed a small mirror on telescoping wand. To get at the broken switch, I needed unscrew two "star" screws and remove the control panel facing. Not Phillips head, not a common slot head. This star screw is hard to find. I finally located it in the fastener section. I bought a bit that fit my stubby ratchet screw driver. I had to use the stubby screw driver because it was such a cramped space. I finally got at the switch, loosened one screw (hex head) and replaced the two wires on clips - no solder needed. Got a kiss and a squeeze from the missus and a load of clean clothes.

Broken handle

Piece of cake. A 10 year old could have done it. Only regret was that I was never asked for a color. The dryer is Tan and the handle I received was White. Personally I don't really care
