My Repair & Advice
Wasn't sure what the issue was did a simple seach and came across several stories on appliance parts web site. Matched up problem with several of the stories, dryer wouldn't power with the dor closed but would power up with the door open. Thanks to the previous stories I removed the top panel and front top panel. ( needed a t-20 tool bit which I had, suggest a magnetic head screwdriver to disconnect the front top panel didn't want to chance losing the bit ) and noticed the door switch was burnt. I found by Loosing the the front panel I was able to reach the door switch much easier. Hardest part was pulling out the dryer which was stacked, once I had it on the floor didn't take but 15 min. Placed the order on a Mon. afternoon regular shipping had the part on Wed. Morning. This is my second time using appliance parts pro previously replaced the heating element...Thanks guys made the job easy and saved me a pocket full of money.
