CustomerNancy from Burnsville MN

Start knob broken off

I popped the dryer lid open by pressing on two latches with the flat putty knife. I found that I really needed another set of hands, so my son helped me with this project. I had to disassemble the front panel by unscrewing 2 screws on the sides and also 2 screws around the dryer timer knob, after removing all knobs. Also, I had to pry apart 2 of the front pieces because they are clipped together with plastic latches. I unhooked two wires from the starter switch and then gave a half twist to remove it from the opening. Once that was removed, I just replaced it with the new part and put everything back together in reverse order. I did test the dryer before putting back together, but make sure you unplug it again while assembling. I forgot and two wires touched and there was a big spark and popping noise. Fortunately, nothing was blown out and no one was shocked I had absolutely no experience with anything like this but found this website to be a huge help. I figured everything out just be looking at the diagrams and some other notes on-line. Thanks!

CustomerBren from Albuquerque NM

Knob fell off - start switch shaft broken from pliers

Unplug the dryer!! I warned my partner of this at first, but she didn't listen.... got quite a little shock from the wires. Removed the back panel with a phillips head screwdriver, removed the connecting wires from the starter box. One was a bit snug, so I loosened it with some flat-nosed pliers. Twisted the unit and it popped right out! Once the part came in I popped it back in, twisted it until it locked into place, put the connecting wires on and replaced the panel. The knob snapped on easily and it all took about 10 minutes total to do! I'm not much of a repairman or electrician and this was SUPER easy!
