Q:

Dryer Switch Replacement

A:

I know that it can be difficult to not have all of your appliances working properly. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I have found a link that will provide the instruction for replacing the switch. This can be very easy, just follow the instructions. I would suggest that you take a picture of the old switch before you remove it, this will show you what the new one should look like when it's in. I hope this helps.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the dryer. I should be able to help you with replacing the door switch. First, unplug the dryer from the wall. Then remove the lint filter and take out the two screws below it. Now pull the top forward to clear the front clips and lift. Once it is lifted, you have access to the door switch. Make sure to keep one hand on the switch when removing the screws. You do not want to drop ant parts inside. Install the new switch in the reverse order. If you switch has three terminals but you only have two wires, the wires will connect to the C= common and the NO = normally open terminals. It does not mater witch wire goes on what terminal. Just so you use the NO and C terminals.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the dryer.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.
