On and off switch w10117655... when testing with ohm meter mine reads .955 so is that mean it good or not good
Hello Shane, Thank you for your inquiry. It should have close to 0 ohms, so you may want to replace the switch. Hope this helps!

How do i test this switch?
Hi David, Thank you for your question. Disconnect the power to your appliance. Remove the switch. Press it in to the on position. You can test this part with a multi meter. It should read close to 0 ohms when testing. If your meter does not change or move then the switch is bad and needs to be replaced. Good luck with your repair.

Hi need help when dryer timer is turn on dryer seems to activate fine and work how ever when i push start button there is no response timer will continue to run and sometimes after a while it will start and work fine ( dryer works fine and other times takes time to start and work ) very concern
For model number MGD5740TQ0
Hello Ivy, Thank you for your inquiry. We would recommend checking the following parts to fix your issue: door switch, drive motor, push to start switch, internal bias and high limit thermostats, and the thermal fuse. You can test the parts with a multimeter. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, there are YouTube videos available to assist you. Hope this helps!

Hello i used my dryer last night get was getting hot but i tried to turn it on again to dry some jeans and it wouldn’t cone back on. When i turn the timer knob on and try to start you can’t hear the timer either.Can it be a bad start button or something else?
For model number WaeD4800XQ1
Hello and thank you for writing. Have you checked the breaker in your house panel to make sure it did not trip? If this does not fix this problem then your thermal fuse PS11741460 and/or possibly a malfunctioning door switch PS11741701 might be faulty and possibly needs to be replaced. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime.

Dryer doesn’t start when button pushed. Light comes and and goes off when door switch pushed. Turned timer dial to wrinkle free and dryer kicked on for a moment. Is it the push to start switch? Will it work for model mgdc300xwc?
For model number MGDC300XWC
Hello Michael, thank you for your question. There are a couple of things that could cause your dryer not to start. It could be the push to start switch, part number PS11748542. You can test this part with a multi meter. Touch the black meter probe to one metal prong on the switch and the red probe to the other. Press in on the switch pole. If the meter doesn't change, the switch is bad and needs to be replaced. If the meter drops to zero, the switch is good. It could also be the timer part number PS11746606. To test the timer Look for a wiring diagram located on the back of the unit, inside the cabinet or control panel, which tells the correct Ohms range, and what contacts should be open or closed. Move the scale on the multimeter to read Rx1, and zero the multimeter by touching two probes together. Set the dial on the multimeter to read "0". Touch one probe to the terminal where you removed the wire and the second probe to any other contact on the timer. You should get a reading between 2000 and 3000 OHMs or in the range of the suggested reading on the diagram. If contacts open when they should be closed or closed when they should be open based on the diagram, or you get a reading out of range, replace the timer. Open contacts should read OL (Open Loop) and closed contacts should read 0. We hope this helps!

Dryer won’t start. I open the door and the light comes on. I push the door switch in and the light goes off. I checked the continuity of the push to start switch and it shows good. I also bypassed it. I replaced the dial timer also. I also replaced the thermal fuse. Dryer still won’t start. The belt is intact. What’s next to check. There is proper voltage coming from the outlet. Breaker has been reset.
For model number MGDC300XWC
Hello Michael, Thank you for the question. We suggest testing the Switch Box on the Motor. You will need to test the connectors with a multi meter to check for continuity. Hope this helps!

When testing the push to start switch, there are 4 prongs. Which ones do I test with the multi meter to tell if the switch is good?
For model number Kenmore dryer model 11062802101
Hello Shari, thank you for your question. The terminals should be labeled with letters. Touch the one that says "com" with one probe and the one that says "no" with the other. Push down on the switch, if it does not move at all it does not have continuity and needs to be replaced. Repeat the test touching "com" with one probe and "nc" with the other. This test should show continuity (0 ohms) before the button is pressed. If it does not, the switch will need to be replaced. We hope this helps!

    Push to Start switch burned out due to electrical problem
    Unplug from the wall ,remove upper back panel ( watch out for the grounding wire screwed to the panel), pulled off front knob, then twist and pull the switch out. Unplug the burned out switch, plugged in the new one. Re-assembled what I took apart, plugged her up and dried the load that was in the washer. Note: if yours is burned out due to house power surge make sure the timer is working after you replace the switch, you might need one of thoes too.

    Dryer would stop after a very short time when cold, wouldn't keep running at all when hot
    At first I was advised to replace the temperature overload sensors, which I did but didn't fix the problem. After adding the additional information that the dryer would run to full cycle as long as the Start switch was held in I was advised to replace the Start switch.

    It wasn't obvious from the wiring diagram, but if you remove the Start switch and look at the side it shows it contains a solenoid holding circuit that keeps the switch in the "on" mode as long as there is a feedback signal from the temperature overload switches. So if the dryer will run to completion if the switch is held in, replace the Start switch. If it still stops mid-cycle, replace the temperature overload switches.

    The replacement videos were spot on as far as clear and easy to follow instructions for the repair, and all ordered parts were delivered very quickly.

    Thanks for your help PartsSelect!
