For Whirlpool Dryer Door Switch Assembly (Part Number: AP2976041)

Answer or Comment

View all Questions

I have a dryer door switch assembly that has gone bad. Part # is 3406104. That part has been replaced by Part # 3406105. Looking at the new part online the new part has only one connector pin in the middle whereas the old part had 2 pin one on each side with nothing in the middle. Would the new part work or do I need some kind of connector?

Dan for Model Number red4340sq1

ANSWER Dan, You have the correct part number 3406105 it has been "substituted" by the manufacturer as a cost savings effort. This door switch will work on dryers with or without a drum light. If you have a drum light your internal wire harness will have three wires, if theres no drum light, the harness will have two wires. but the wires will align properly and supply power to the proper circuit, regardless.
