    Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
    Dryer would not start - bad door switch
    Removed to top panel - two screws in the back
    Removed the screws from the metal panel holding the electronic board, remove the wire clips and rotated the metal panel up and out of the way.
    Disconnected the three wire connector to the door switch cable - There must be a special tool for this as a basically destroyed the connector on the door switch cable.
    Use a pliers to pull out the door switch from the front. This was not easy and I wound up having to destroy the door switch to get it out.
    Inserted the new door switch cable first from the fron of the dryer and connected the new door switch cable connector to the dryer wiring harness.
    Rotated the main electronic panel back in place, re-inserted the cable harness and re-inserted the bracket screws.
    Re-installed the top panel and screws.

    Dryer would power up. but would not start when start button selected
    I referred to the dryers tech sheet for troubleshooting. The start switch was found bad. However, all other connection looked good and control module board appeared ok until I removed it from the machine. Found bottom of board, directly under the motor relay, scorched and burnt. All other components checked out ok. A new $300.00 board would be needed to fix the problem. Not worth fixing a 10yr. old machine! New dryer on order. Sometimes you just can't make a silk purse out of a sows ear! I returned the start switch that took over 8 days receive it. Lesson learned; electronic control boards have two sides. Always visually inspect both sides. It will save you alot of wasted troubleshooting time.
