You dont want to by-pass the switch ,,,, its on there for safety and if it is by-passed it can cause problems with dryer or worse could start a fire.

How too bypass my tree wire door switch in my frigidaire dryer


Thank you for your inquiry, friend!
I see you would like to bypass your door switch on your Frigidaire dryer. I would not recommend bypassing the door switch this could cause additional issues for your dryer in the future. Are you having an issue with the door switch not latching? If you could provide any additional information I would be happy to assist you further. -Matt

I have fridgidaire dryer and when I push the start button it just makes a buzzing noise but does not start


Unplug the dryer or disconnect power then remove the two screws securing the top panel to the rear and slide the panel backwards and off.

Behind the drum is the thermal limiter which is wired in series with the motor.

Check the continuity of the thermal limiter and if it reads open, replace it including the high-limit thermostat located on the heater housing (also shown in the picture above). Bypass the thermal limiter for troubleshooting purposes by joining the wires together and insulating it properly. If the dryer starts and runs properly with this setup, the thermal limiter is indeed open. If the dryer still does not start, jump a wire between the COM and NO terminals of the door switch. The dryer should start with the thermal limiter and door switch bypassed, otherwise bypass the motor relay on the control board. Replace control board if the dryer starts with the three bypassed, otherwise the motor is the one at fault and needs to be replaced.

Our Whirlpool dryer model #LER7646AQ0 will not start. Door switch checks for power with a power tester. Put new start switch in and still doesn't work. Do I need to use Ohm tester or will power tester...


This problem is commonly caused by a blown thermal fuse located on the blower housing. The thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor and the motor activates a centrifugal switch for the heating element when it runs. These setup makes the dryer fail to start and the heating element not to turn on if the thermal fuse is blown. The dryer seems to no work at all. Verify the condition of the thermal fuse by bypassing it and starting the dryer.

Disconnect power then access and bypass the thermal fuse on the blower housing. The blower housing is located on the rear left bottom of the dryer cabinet. Remove the rear panel to access the blower housing and so the thermal fuse.

Bypass the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and connecting them together. Insulate them properly and plug the dryer back in. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced along with the cycling thermostat if the dryer starts. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards.


The thermal fuse and cycling thermostat are part numbers 3392519 and 3387134, respectively.

Door switch is bad. Need to temporarily bypass it. Need to know which color is the hot wire and which one is the light (door open). And a schematic would help.


To bypass the switch just remove the 2 wires connected to it and connect them together. be sure to insulated them with electrical tape and erplace the switch as soon as you can.

Maytag performa dryer quit working


Check your breaker first and then the wiring. Check power coming from the timer next. With a load and resistance that you had, you could have tripped one of the breakers.Since you have bypassed the thermal fuse, it probably is the timer switch.

How do I bypass a door switch for my Whirlpool dryer-


take the top loose on the dryer to acces the door switch. If it is the old style it should have a metal suround over the black switch. If the metal arm piece has broke, Ttake it off and tape the white button down to make it run.
