I have a dryer door switch assembly that has gone bad. Part # is 3406104. That part has been replaced by Part # 3406105. Looking at the new part online the new part has only one connector pin in the middle whereas the old part had 2 pin one on each side with nothing in the middle.
Would the new part work or do I need some kind of connector?
Answer Dan, You have the correct part number 3406105 it has been "substituted" by the manufacturer as a cost savings effort. This door switch will work on dryers with or without a drum light. If you have a drum light your internal wire harness will have three wires, if theres no drum light, the harness will have two wires. but the wires will align properly and supply power to the proper circuit, regardless.
Heating element gets hot when timer is set but dryer will not run
Answer Hello Mike. Check and see if the belt is broke or the motor is locked up and replace the part that is bad. The element should get hot unless the motor is running, unless it is shorted out or the belt is broke and the motor runs, but the drum does not turn.
