dryer not working
After unplugging and removing the back cover from the dryer, locate the push button switch. Slide putty knife around outer cover to unhook catch. Replace with new push button switch. My dryer is still not working, but this was a simple replacement.

When the button was pushed it wouldn't start.
Actually this site also has a video on how to do this repair, which was awesome. Mine was slightly different because the top where the controls were didn't raise up like on the video.I unplugged the dryer. I had to take the nuts off the back metal sections to expose the parts. I popped the Push-To-Start button out, removed the fuse and put the new parts on. Put the metal sections back on and plugged it in. WA LA it worked!! I probably didn't need the push button part but figured I might as well use it since I bought it. I do believe it was the Thermal fuse that was bad. Saved me probably over $100.00 by doing it myself.
