I need to replace the start switch on my GE dryer and have found the part but do not know how to install it. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Answer Hello Connie,
This is not a difficult repair. Unplugging the machine will most likely be the hardest part of the repair. Once it is unplugged, pull the start knob off and remove the screws that hold the control panel cover on. The piece of the switch that protrudes to the side will be lifted with a small flat blade screwdriver so the entire switch assembly can be rotated. At about 1/4 turn, the switch assembly will be free of the control panel. Install the new switch by pushing it down flat and rotating in the opposite direction until it clicks into position. Remove the wires from the old switch and install them onto the new switch. Whether these wires get crossed or not doesn't matter. Re-install the control panel and the start knob, plug the unit back in, and test the unit for normal operation.
