Are the rotary switches interchangable? What is the difference between the roatart start switch and just a rotary swith (AP2042583)?
Answer Hello Jennie. You can not interchange them. They are a different design for the different model numbers. Rotary start switch is a starting switch, and the rotary switch is a selector switch. Hope this helps.

I turn the knob to start and all I hear is a humming noise but no start up..What do I need to do?
Answer Hello. If you can hold the door switch and press start and turn the tub by hand and it starts running, then the motor WE17X10002 is bad and needs to be replaced. Make sure the drum is not binding in the dryer as well.
I just asked you a question about dryer not shutting off after it runs thru its cycle. I was trying to figure out what the part was that went bad and I didn't ask right. Is it the rotary start switch?
Answer Hello Tony,
If the unit continues to run at the end of the cycle and the timer just cycles on around, the centrifugal switch in the motor has stuck. This switch is part of the motor so if cleaning the motor up and getting all of the lint out of the switch area doesn't correct the issue, the main drive motor will have to be replaced.
