Our dryer will not run. There is power to the dryer. Removed the push to start switch. Read a question from another person who said he replaced the switch and it still doesn't run. You mentioned checking the fuse. Can you tell me where the fuse is located? Thank you.

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?

Latest Questions

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.
