Switch sticking in on position

FIRST unplug dryer from electrical source, CAUTION, the top of this dryer does not open with clips, do not pry on top to open! On the front of the dryer look under the lower panel, and find two screws, one on the left side, and one on the right, remove these screws, and pull slightly down on panel to remove. Behind this panel find two screws holding the door panel, one on the left, and one on the right, remove the left, and support the door panel while removing the right side. Gently pull the bottom of door panel outward, and the clips on top of door panel will unhinge from top, carefully rotate left side of door panel to floor, and note the wire connections on switch, and orientation of switch, then unplug wires, and move door panel to a comfortable working positon. Door must be open to remove switch, then depress the two plastic retaining keepers on each side of switch, and push switch through toward door. Replace with new switch, reconnect the wires, and reassymble in reverse order. Remember, door assymbly must be inserted in dryer top at an angle, and then bottom rotated downward, and bottom panel nylon guildes inserted into door panel bottom.

Dryer was not heating

My 20 year old reliable Maytag 512 lgp dryer was not heating anymore. At first the heating element would glow red but not hot enough to ignite the gas. I replaced the element and it worked for a few loads but then stopped reigniting after the first cycle.

After some research and diagnosis (checking connections, amperage flow on each electriical part, etc.) I determined that the two coils were faulty. I ordered parts and replaced them (easy to do) and it worked again, for another few loads. Then nothing worked. The coil did not get hot and I did not hear the clicking sound that initiates current flow to the ignitor through the coils.

I checked the coils and ignitor again, they were fine. Frustrated, I called in a repairman to diagnose the problem. $55 and 15 min later he narrowed it down to the High Limit Thermostat. To demonstrate he bypassed the thermostat by directly connecting the two leads together and the ignitor fired right up.

His price to replace the thermostat? $45 part plus $130 labor. I bought the thermostat online for less than half his parts cost and the labor took me 5 minutes. Simply unscrew the small screws with a small socket set or nutdriver and replace the thermostat. Just two connectors, real simple.

All in all it was very easy to replace the parts, just tricky to diagnose unless you are good with electrical work.

Switch did not turn off dryer when door opened

Switch can be removed from outside of dryer and your video described the repair as having to work from inside dryer. But since wires were still attached to old switch, it could be popped out and wires switched. Since there were three wires on new switch to allow it to turn on and off a circuit, it was useful to check the resistance of the switch compressed or released to be certain I was attaching the two wires to the right two poles of the new switch. But that all required only a couple of minutes. Thank you.

Door safety switch would not close keeping dryer from running

Shut off or unplugged dryer for safety.

Slipped thin blade putty knife up under bezel of switch to unlatch from the panel and pulled forward to remove the swwitch from the dryer. Unplugged the quick connect terminals (3) from the old switch and plugged them onto the new switch. one of the terminals had gotten quite hot and darkened the insulation so it was replaced with one that was supplied with the switch. that was a cut, strip, crimp process. Placed the new switch into the panel and snapped into place.

Dryer no longer shuts off when door opened

All you need for a Maytag is a snub nose Philips screw driver. The screws on the front panel are at the bottom angled down, so a regular length Phillip's won't work. Just unscrew the 2 screws, then lift the panel up and out. Careful not to pull out too far, there are 2 wires attached to the switch. The replacement switch is NOT an exact copy of the old one. My Maytag is over 30 years old and it only had 2 prongs on the switch. The new one has 3. Don't let that throw you. It is the same size. Just attach, 1 wire to the bronze connector & the other to the silver. Push the switch into the door opening, re-attach the door. Total time 20 minutes. Saved well over $100 in a service call. Anyone with an IQ above freezing can do it.

Replaced door switch

Door switch was very easy to replace as it simply snaps in for the outside and you just clip on the two control wires that already have clips on them.

Bad belt, broke swittch taking door off

Basically, your website helped us to make the repair. When I selected the belt, the tips from other customers made it very easy both to take the machine apart and put back together. Putting the belt on was much easier than either my wife or I thought it would be. I have told all my friends about your website. I think it is great.

Thank you.

Loud squeaking, and long drying time

First: I read a lot of repair stories on PartSelect.com, as well as on other sites.
Removed 2 screws and took off lower panel. I turned the drum by hand, and identified the left/rear roller to be the squeaking part. Removed the 2 screws that held the door panel, removed it, and enjoyed the fireworks!!!, because I had neglected to unplug the dryer first. The door switch was ruined, but I was thankful that no bodily injury or severe property damage happened.
While I was shining the flashlight toward the back/underside of the dryer, my dear wife noticed light inside the drum.
Ordered a new new door switch, roller axle, roller and rear felt cylnder seal...all arrived in 3 days.
Decided to replace the front felt seal too, and bought it at a local shop, along with the adhesive, which I couldn't find at PartSelect.com for less than $32.
Took the front drum panel, belt, drum and bulkhead panels off per advice at this site.
Replaced switch, but had to crimp on a new spade connector (included with the switch).
Cleaned off old felt seal adhesive with Goof-Off, and glued on the new seals.
Replaced the real axle and wheel, with a little added lithium grease.
Cleaned out the dirt in the dryer cabinet, and put everything back together with my wife's help and her keen common sense.
The dryer is much quieter, and dries faster thanks to the new seals.
The repair was straightforward, but I rated it "a bit difficult" because of the amount of taking-apart and rebuilding that I decided to do.
