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.

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!

The start button broke in the unit

I unplugged the dryer from the wall and removed the back panel to replace the switch. It only had two wires on the switch I pulled then off and placed them on the new switch and put the unit back together and replaced all the knobs with new ones and it looks new again. Thanks to Parts Select.

Broken start switch

I watched the video that I saw posted on youtube. My dryer did not have a panel on the back to remove, so the part was very easily accessible. I simply took the old switch off and replaced it with the new one. The most impressive part was receiving the part so quickly. That was awesome! It saved me a trip to the laundromat. I really did not expect to receive it so quickly. Thank you!!!

Tenants had stripped the control knob and ruined the switch

Unscrewed the back cover of the control console.
Unscrewed the one screw holding the facia plate to the control console at center of timer switch, then removed the start control knob and the heat selector control knob. Had to use a flat blade screw driver to wedge the heat selector knob off its spindle.
Although all screws removed, unable to remove facia plate due to plastic strip beneath it. Tried to remove the strip, held in by four tension points - one each end and two along the middle. Could not remove it without breaking the securing points off the back of the strip in the middle (plastic also).
After strip came off, easy to remove the facia. Identified the proper location of wiring attached to defunct start switch, and then removed the switch by turning clockwise a short distance.
Inserted the new switch, turned counterclockwise til it snapped into position.
Reversed steps to re-attach facia and back cover of control console. Despite the broken prongs in the middle, the plastic strip under the facia still stays in place by tension and is secured on the ends, so looks unnecessary to replace it. Bad design to not let you see how it is attached before you have to break it to get it loose!
Cleaned all surfaces and tested new start switch, which worked perfectly first try. Re-attached venting duct and repositioned dryer next to washer. Task completed.
