Dryer would stay on after opening the Door. The switch that turns off the dryer when you open the door was not broken.
You open up the lint filter access door and remove the two small screws that hold it to the top of the dryer. Once they are removed, you insert a flat blade screwdriver under front-top of the unit and the top will pop off. Exerting a little pressure towards you will help lift to top off the mounts. There are no other screws to remove.
The new switch comes attached to a clip. You just pull off the old clip and replace it with the new one and discard the old switch.

Would not start
We were able to look at the diagram of the dryer to figure out how to access the part and then replace it. Fantastic! Your site is wonderful. The suggestion for the repair for not starting was right on the mark. The parts came very quickly, as well.

Dryer on/off door switch broke and needed replaced.
Took the dryer top off and removed the bad part. Looked it up online and found a replacement by looking for whirlpool parts. They didn't have one at the local parts stores so I ordered the part online and had it mailed within three days. I replaced it quite easily. It worked and I put everything back together and my wife took over the tricky part of drying the laundry! The repair was quite easy for a non mechanical person like me.

broken door switch meant dryer was shutting off thinking door was open when it wasn't
pop off the lid, replace the switch. (in meantime, while waiting for replacement switch to arrive, shorted switch wires together to fool dryer into thinking door was closed)

Dryer continued to run non-stop
Found that when the dryer continued to run after the door was opened that the door switch had gone bad. I unpluged the Dryer, opened the top of the dryer to get access to the switch by lifting top up with fingers and a gentle prying of a flat screwdriver to release spring clips holding it down. I then unplugged the wires from the switch and removed the 2 screws that held the switch in. Then reverse this process when you get your new switch from part select (which we received in 2 days) and the total time to fix it took aprox. 10-15 min. total to do. Easy fix for ANY handy person at home!

Dryer would not turn on
I found the door switch in the upper right of the door opening was broken. This will not allow the dryer to turn on. The switch is held in by two phillips screws.I removed the screws holding it in place. Next open the door where the lint filter is and remove the two screws. Now at the front corners of the dryer on each side you will need to insert at tool to pop the clips.I used a door panel trim tool. Once you pop the clips lift up the top of the dryer. Next unplug the switch and remove it. Install the new switch through the hole install the switch screws drop the top back down and clip it, reinstall the screws at the lint filter. If this was your problem the dryer should turn on. This is a 15 min job!!!
