I received a replacement Push to Start switch 279173 since the dryer will not start or just momentarily sometimes. The replacement seems to be a universal replacement part, but want to be sure to connect the right terminals since the replacement has 3 terminals instead of 2 and a different shape. I'll need to mount with new bracket and create holes to attach to the control panel with metal screws. Neither bracket lines up the holes already in the control panel. Is the Black wire the CO terminal and White wire the NO terminal? 2nd question the rating for these switches is different. Old -1/3 HP 125 VAC 1/3 250 VAC verses New - 3/4 HP VAC 125 1 1/2 HP 250 VAC. Will that cause any problems?

Part 692021 was replaced with part 279173. I have one black wire and one white wire, and three terminals. One marked com, one marked nc and one marked no. The wiring instructions say to disregard terminal # 3. So which terminal gets the black wire and which gets the white wire.

I replaced the timer per your answer to my previous question about the dryer and it still shuts off in the off position and clicks through the off postion and starts back up. I'm guessing that its the start button. Any thoughts?

My dryer keeps running. In that it shuts off while the timer is in the off location but it keeps clicking through the off position and starts back up in the next mode in the dryer dial. The serviceman put in a new timer and the same thing happens, so he removed the new and put the old one back in. And said he'd call me back with a solution, he never called. My guess is the start button shorted out and keeps the timer going. Your thoughts?
