The start button broke in the unit

I unplugged the dryer from the wall and removed the back panel to replace the switch. It only had two wires on the switch I pulled then off and placed them on the new switch and put the unit back together and replaced all the knobs with new ones and it looks new again. Thanks to Parts Select.

I broke the turn start switch and had to replace it

This was a Sears Dryer, also know as Kenmore, This dryer can be stacked or side by side. In this case it was stacked. There are no directions on how to replace this part. For this model made in 2005 the lid of the dryer is held in front by two clips. You open the lid simply by prying the two front corners up with a flat head screw driver. The front of the top lid pops right up. You may have to remove the mounts in back if you cant lift the dryer lid enough to be able to get your hands in. UNPLUG THE DRYER I got a nasty shock. There are two wires on the switch, remember how they go and where they are, that's important. Turn the switch (from the front or back) so that it pops out. Remove and replace the wires put it back in (from behind/top) and twist a 1/4 turn into place. Plug, test and simply push the cover back down onto the clips. Done.

Broken start switch

I watched the video that I saw posted on youtube. My dryer did not have a panel on the back to remove, so the part was very easily accessible. I simply took the old switch off and replaced it with the new one. The most impressive part was receiving the part so quickly. That was awesome! It saved me a trip to the laundromat. I really did not expect to receive it so quickly. Thank you!!!

Broken knob & selector handle

Replacing the parts was a little difficult because the pacakges did not come with installation instuctions, However, a few minutes spent reviewing how the control bar is set up i was able to figure it out and able to take it apart with little hassle. If you have small hands it will be much easier since theres very little space between the control bar and the dryer its self. Bottom line; it was fun!
