CustomerGary from Arlington Heights IL

Knowing how to open the top

I unpluged the machine. Pried out the old switch with the tip of a screw driver. Pried off the connectors, there was not enough extra wire for me to connect the new switch through the front of the machine. I pushed the new switch in place. Using the screw driver I carefully pried open the top front of the machine { there were 2 plastic spring clips securing the top}. I placed a wash bucket on the drum to hold the top open , connected the 2 connectors to the switch and snapped top back in place.

CustomerJames from Los Angeles CA

Dryer ran for about 5 minutes and then shut off completely, washer still worked (stackable unit)

simple fixes, knob broke required a good tug with rocking motion , put on new knob with a push.
dryer switch required a screw dryer to pop out , 2 wires on back required a tug on each to remove from lug ( blade) and a push to place back on new switch,
That was about it.s
