First I turned off the breaker to the dishwasher. I then removed the bolts that held on the inner cover(note the two small bolts go on the bottom one on each side). I lifted the switch up and disconnected the wire clips from each side. I then put the new switch in place with the wires attached. Then replaced the cover and screwed it into place. Closed the door and flipped the breaker back on and turned the dish washer on and it started up. A very easy replaceable part.

Part select made the repair soooo easy. The videos are VERY well done and "Steve" is a great teacher. I loved the fact that on the email confirmation, Part Select had attached the link to a video for each repair. My dryer works perfect now! Not to mention, the parts were much more affordable than buying from other parts providers on line and shipping was very fast.

The only tool used was a phillips head screwdriver. I removed two screws to lift the lid and two more screws to free the front panel, slid off the front panel, and had direct access to all 4 slides, replaced, reassembled, and good as new.

My dryer would run but not heat and the timer would not advance. PartSelect helped me determine that the heating element needed to be replaced. I have very little experience with appliance repair. I found this to be challenging but well worth it.

Low heat

  • Customer: Larry from Naples, FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

I bought the Heating Element and Housing together so that I would not have to stretch and run the coils and to save time!
1. I removed the two screws that hold the top down by opening the dryer door and removing the two screws at the top of the door opening. Then I pulled the top off.
2. Then I removed the two screws on the top inside of the dryer on the left right and took the front off.
3. Next I spread the dryer open a little and pulled the drum out while pushing the belt off the back of the drum.
4. Then I removed the screws to the sensors and removed them from the housing.
5. Then I removed the four screws holding the heating element housing to the back of the dryer and took it out and put in the new peace.
6. Do everything in reverse when putting the dryer back together.

Videos were perfect and job was easy

The repair was performed in the laundry room which was large enough the handle all the parts when disassembled. I followed the video and it was perfect without any errors. The job was simple and even putting on the new belt without having the ability to see what I was doing. You'll understand when you view the video and perform the job. Just follow the instructions including using the newly supplied screw to tap the new holes.

Simply popped the old broken part out and popped the new part into place. I wasn't sure if it was the Latch Door or the Door Strike. Once the parts arrived, it was clear the Door Strike was not the issue.
