How do we remove the door switch to see if it is faulty? Turn knob & panel lites up. Just replaced control board 3wks ago. Now you turn knob, hit start, dryer starts for a second & shuts off. Does it sound like the door switch? I don't want to break it off trying to check it.
Answer Hello Debbie,
This is the manuals' explaination of the door switch removal:
1. Disconnect the dryer from electrical supply, open the door and remove the top.
2. Disconnect the wires from the door switch.
3. Squeeze the release tabs on the ends of the switch and push it out the front.
My dryer will not start because it says the door is open, however the door is closed. How can I fix this problem?
Answer Hello Judd. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the door switch 134813601 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
When I turn the dryer on it will flash (dr) and wont start.
Answer Hello Carter. Dr is a door error code. You need to check and see if the door switch 134813601 is bad and if so, replace the switch so the unit will run properly.
i just change the bearing in my drier and now is not turning on, i think i conneted the switch wires wrong , i have checked everything else and all look okey......after putting the switch wire bad and putting them again,, no turning on,,,,, do i need a new switch???? or may it be something else.
Answer Danny, Are you sure you reset and locked both breaker properly at the breaker box ? at the door switch, the blue wire should attach to the "C" terminal of the switch, and go to the terminal block. The brown wire should attach to the "NC" terminal of the switch and go the the drum light. The gray wire should attach to the "NO" terminal of the switch and go to the start switch and timer. Of course you also want to check and make sure none of the wires got broken or damaged during the repair. If you have a multimeter, you could check the start switch for a "closed" circuit when you press the button, with the wires disconnected, to varify the start switch has not failed. Thanks and Good Luck
