Easy to install

Took 10 minutes to install. Took a long time for part to come in. Still waiting for the dryer door switch.

Start switch for our dryer.

The switch arrived promptly and worked fine. I am pleased with it. Although it was not the exact version, it fit and operated fine.

good part bad DIY

I was concerned the part was not an exact replica of the part I was replacing but it went in super easy and works. The sad part was that this was not the broken component. almost saved $150.
