Unplug the dryer before installing this part, also refer to the diagram provided by the manufacturer.

Do i have to remove front panel to check switch?

If the interior dryer light still works would that mean it’s probbaly not this part?
For model number MDE3757AYW
Hello MJ, Thank you for your inquiry. This part prevents the dryer from running when the door is open, so it could still be this part even if the light still works. You can test the switch with a multimeter to see if it has continuity. Hope this helps!

I replaced the door switch but it didn't solve the problem. When the door is open the interior light and touch pad lights up normally. When i close the door everything shuts off as if i unplugged the dryer.
For model number MDE7500AYW
Hi Gene, thank you for your question. It sounds like you may want to check your fuse to see if it is working correctly. Otherwise it may be your control board itself that is the issue. Good luck with your repair.

I've used my dryer without the timer functioning for awhile now. It shuts off only when i open the door and the timer itself doesn't move. I thought it was the timer but it may be the door switch. Can you give me some direction? Thank you.
For model number Maytag DG412 Series 07
Hi Marica, thank you for your question. Looking at your model information there are a few parts that you should take out and test to see which one is giving you the issue. The first parts to check in this case would be all of your thermostats and thermal fuses. You can test those parts with a multi meter and they should be reading 0 ohms to be working correctly. If those parts are fine, you should then go on to testing your heating element as well. You can also test that with a multi meter and it should be reading between 0 - 50 ohms. Something else you should also check would be your filter and ducts. Make sure there is absolutely no blockage that would restrict air flow in your appliance. If those parts are find then you may want to look at your door switch or the timer itself being the issue. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

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 Didnt Turn On
First - I did some research on line as to the possible problem with this dryer.
I had already taken the front apart before, so I knew what was needed to remove the door and front.
Remove the 2 screws that hold the dryer door in place with a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the two screws on the opposite side of the door also. Place the door out of the way. The front panel of the dryer now tilts forward. The front panel sits on two clips, tilt forward and lift out of place. The door switch has two prongs that hold it in place, pinch the prongs and the switch slides out. Disconnect the two wires on the switch and connect the wires to the new switch. The new switch slides into place. I tested the new switch before I put it all back together. Took me no longer than 15 minutes.

Dryer had a high squeal
I removed the back plate on the lower right corner, unfastened the spring on the tension gear, removed the belt from the tension roller and motor pulley. Removed the front panel of the dryer, then removed the drum panel, which holds the drum into place and also the air flow. Removed the drum and belt. Using the snap ring pliers, removed the snap rings from each of the support drum rollers. Removed the rollers and replaced them with new ones, replaced snap rings, replaced drum which was easy along with the belt, replaced the drum panel, went to the back of the dryer and replace the belt on the motor pulley and tension roller, re hooked the spring. Returned to the front of the dryer and replaced the door switch kit. Overall it was very simple operation. The hardest part is to get the belt in the proper place.

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.
