Question and Answers

Q:

whirlpool gold ultimate II dryer..........door switch broken

A:

This link for a previous answer has a video that shows how to access and replace that door switch: Replacing Door Switch to Sears Kenmore Electric Dryer . That video shows several types of dryers. You will need to use the procedure that involves these steps:

  1. Unplug the dryer
  2. Release the console
  3. Remove the screws at the back of the front panel
  4. Release and lift the top panel of the dryer

That information should help you complete that repair. If you need more assistance, let us know.

Check the back of the endcap on that console for a screw on each side. The whirlpool models often have the screw on that back side of the endcap instead of the front side. Once you remove the screw on each side that holds the console down on the top panel, you should be able to hinge the console up in the service position.

Q:

Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II dryer need to access door switch

A:

The image below shows how to remove the top panel on that type of dryer. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components. NOTE: The screws that secure the console to the top panel should be on the back side of that console instead of the front side as shown in that image . Once you remove those screws, you can flip that console up into the service position and remove the screws at the back of that top panel. You can then release and lift the top panel to access and replace that door switch. You do not have to use that whole procedure. Just use that top part that shows how to access the door switch.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician replace that door switch, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .
