I first disconnected the power by unplugging power cord.

Fixed broken knobs and switch
First, I unplugged the dryer. Then, I removed the back panel from the controls section (6 screws), disconnected the old switch and reconnected the new switch. Positioning the switch in the control panel took some figuring out, but once I realized that the switch slots into place, and then gets locked in by turning 1/8 of a turn, it worked fine.

Replacing the knobs was a cinch, just popped them in place. Now the controls are like new again.

Frigidaire controls are really junk, though. I won't be surprised if I have to do this repair again in two years.

Knob fell off - start switch shaft broken from pliers
Unplug the dryer!! I warned my partner of this at first, but she didn't listen.... got quite a little shock from the wires. Removed the back panel with a phillips head screwdriver, removed the connecting wires from the starter box. One was a bit snug, so I loosened it with some flat-nosed pliers. Twisted the unit and it popped right out! Once the part came in I popped it back in, twisted it until it locked into place, put the connecting wires on and replaced the panel. The knob snapped on easily and it all took about 10 minutes total to do! I'm not much of a repairman or electrician and this was SUPER easy!

Broken start switch and knob
First I removed the existing knobs and then the screws holding the top panel. I then removed the broken switch and replaced it with the new one, replaced the panel and knobs. The process took me approx. 45 minutes. PartsSelect.com saved me the cost of hiring a handyman.

Start Switch stopped working
First I unplugged the dryer. I removed the 3 knobs on the front control panel as well as the 6 screws on the back. The start switch easily removes by turning it 45 degrees and pulls out. I used a pair of needle nose pliers to pull the two connectors loose from the old switch. (They are color coded wires, 1 brown and 1 gray. The switch is marked with the numbers 1 and 2 on the connectors so remember which one goes where) Then i hooked up the new switch in reverse order and was back in business in about 5 minutes.

I broke the turn start switch and had to replace it
This was a Sears Dryer, also know as Kenmore, This dryer can be stacked or side by side. In this case it was stacked. There are no directions on how to replace this part. For this model made in 2005 the lid of the dryer is held in front by two clips. You open the lid simply by prying the two front corners up with a flat head screw driver. The front of the top lid pops right up. You may have to remove the mounts in back if you cant lift the dryer lid enough to be able to get your hands in. UNPLUG THE DRYER I got a nasty shock. There are two wires on the switch, remember how they go and where they are, that's important. Turn the switch (from the front or back) so that it pops out. Remove and replace the wires put it back in (from behind/top) and twist a 1/4 turn into place. Plug, test and simply push the cover back down onto the clips. Done.

Broken knob & selector handle
Replacing the parts was a little difficult because the pacakges did not come with installation instuctions, However, a few minutes spent reviewing how the control bar is set up i was able to figure it out and able to take it apart with little hassle. If you have small hands it will be much easier since theres very little space between the control bar and the dryer its self. Bottom line; it was fun!
