Product Description

Door Switch Kit Specifications

This part replaces two terminal switches in a dryer and prevents the dryer from running when the door is open. This includes two connectors. If your dryer will not shut off, start, or does not tumble, replacing the door switch can solve this appliance problem. The tools needed for replacement are a screw driver and wire strippers. Make sure to attach the two wires to the right two poles of the new switch, to do this you can check the resistance of the switch. Unplug the dryer before installing this part, also refer to the diagram provided by the manufacturer.

Won't Tumble
Removed lower front panel.

Removed door assembly* making note of the wire positions on the door switch
* When removing the door assembly DO NOT LET IT DROP DOWN! Doing so will destroy the door switch. Swing the door assembly upward from the bottom toward you as high as it will go then pull it free.

Removed the drum and belt assembly.

Removed the idler pulley and idler pully spring.

Vacuumed up the interior dryer floor and blew out the motor w/ comp air. Also cleaned the ribbed motor pulley with a nylon brush and brake cleaner sprayed on a shop towel.

Removed the drum tires and cleaned their shafts and internal bearing sleeves with brake cleaner sprayed on a shop towel.

Reinstalled the drum tires after lubricating their shafts with a very light coat of general purpose grease.

Replaced the idler pulley and idler pulley spring after cleaning and lubing shaft and pulley bearing as done on the drum tires.

Reinstalled the drum with the new belt (ribbed side down) roughly in place.

Reinstalled the front door assembly after reconnecting it's wiring making sure to insert it's top locking tabs with the bottom of the door held up high then swung down into place

Tensioned the belt by positioning the flat side of the belt that comes down the right side of the drum over the idler pulley flat side down and then the ribbed side of the belt over the motor shaft. You will have to move the idler pulley arm to apply full tension against the spring in order to have the slack to get it around the motor shaft.

Reinstalled the lower front panel.

Checked dryer operation OK.

This repair was rated a bit difficult because I didn't know the trick for removing/installing the door assembly and destroyed the switch. Furthermore, putting the belt back on is a somewhat difficult challenge because you have to do it mostly by feel

no power, not turn on
I bought all the recommended parts for this trouble, but it turned out to be caused by burt wire on terminal block causing separation from block as all latches, motor, breakers, elements, switches and thermal sensors tested positive continuity, I finally decided to look in rear panel where incoming power meets terminus to motor, etc. and wires were burnt at ends and post on block was separated from base. I got on phone immediately to customer service to order part shown on their very helpful schematic diagram seen on partselect website. The part was unfortunately discontinued but may be available from other sources. She explained how to search based on part # and the words " terminal block" which directed me to a supplier in MI. Repair completed once appropriate part was received. Thanks again for the direction given even though part was not purchased in the end. Will certainly return to partselect in the future if any issues come up in future. Very helpful site for the DIY'er!!

The door switch was defected
The door switch was easy to replace. It is located in the right bottom of the door and I popped out with my fingers. Follow the wire connectors from the old switch and remounted back in.

Washer control unit went out
Removed two front covers, the one with the dials and one between the washer drier which is at an angle. It was mostly plug and play. The tough part was not knowing the large dials do not pull off like the small dials. You need to pop off the end caps to expose the nuts that bolt the dials to their control boxes. Then remove the right screw on the the top front panel and slide the plastic edge to the right and the metal panel will come off exposing the left retaining screw.

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.

If the interior dryer light still works would that mean it’s probbaly not this part?
For model number MDE3757AYW
PartSelect logo
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'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
PartSelect logo
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.

Dryer will stop running when the door opens but the timer still clicking. When i close the door and push start bottom it will continue running and not stop. This is coin operated dryer that won't stop running unless the door is open. Timer is clicking all the time. Is this part broken or is the timer?

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.
