Dryer start knob broke clean off
I YouTube'd how to repair it. It was super easy. Needed a power drill to get the screwsa off and a flat head screwdriver to pry off the wires but besides that it took about ten minutes and I was finished.

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.

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
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!!!

What is a thermal limiter.
For model number GLER331AS1
PartSelect logo
Hi Phyllis, Thank you for the question.The thermal limiter, also known as a thermal fuse, blows to cut off power to the dryer when the dryer begins to overheat. Once the dryer reached 220 degrees Fahrenheit, the heat cuts out. If the thermal fuse is defective, damaged, or blown. Hope this helps!

The switch you push to start the dryer won't works. I can select the cycle i want.
PartSelect logo
Hi Mary, 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. You may also want to check your start switch itself. 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. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Our dryer overheated and shut off. Cooled down, and it starts to run when you turn the start switch but stops when you release the switch. Is this likely a bad start switch or something else?
For model number GLER331AS2
PartSelect logo
Hi Steve, Thank you for the question. if the appliance over heated the start switch is not the issue. I suggest cleaning out the vents and the vent tubes. Make sure they are sitting flat with no dips or bends. If the air flow is blocked it will cause the appliance to over heat. it is also a good idea to remove the front panel and clean any lint build up from the duct and inside the cabinet. Once everything is cleaned out and if you have the same issues, you will need to test the thermostats and the thermal limiter on the element housing and the blower housing to see if they are defective or where tripped when they over heated. Hope this helps!

Hello, If my switch is bad , would I hear a buzzing noise when I turn the switch, on? Or could it be something else? thanks
For model number GLER341AS1
PartSelect logo
Hi Harry, thank you for contacting us. Based on our understanding of the issue, we would suggest you check the power supply to your dryer. Sometimes, a tripped circuit breaker might stop enough power from getting to the dryer, causing a buzzing noise. If the issue remains, the problem might be with the door switch, part number PS2330880. The door switch tells the main control board that the door is closed, and it can allow the dryer to run. When the switch becomes faulty, your dryer might not start at all, and it will make a buzzing noise. We would recommend checking the door switch for continuity using a multimeter. We hope this information helps!
