The front door panel clicks off with the help of a butter knife! then you are able to unscrew 2 fixings with a 5sided star star-shaped key (or in the absence of this specialist a 2.0mm 6-sided hex allen key will do). the broken hook can then be removed backwards out of the door and the new one put in.

You will need to get inside the housing to change the switch. The top typically hinges back then you can get to the front panel.

It sounds like you have a three wire door switch on that dryer and you have hooked the wires up incorrectly on the door switch or the switch is just bad one of the two.

I just purchased a Whirlpool Duel Dryer (Model #WED9150WW1) and hooked it up to an existing three-wire cord. The only thing that works is the light inside the dryer when you open the door. No lights on...

here is a diagram of how a three/four wire plug hooks up:

if it is hooked up correctly, then you will need to have a multimeter and check for the 220volts on the terminal. I do not think its the door as the panel is not getting power, if you have the 220 volts on the terminal then you will need to remove the back top panel and find the wiring diagram and check for voltage to the control board. Since you did just purchase it, then they should have a repair guy that can come out and fix it. Basically, if you can verify that the machine is getting the correct voltage then there is a problem with the machine, more then likely the control board. I hope this helped Tim

I turned on the dryer, shut the door, it briefly started then died. already checked the fuse box. please advise...

Hi the chances are the switch needs replacing the switch im going on about is the switch on the door, have you tried pushing the door shut further and then see if it works, if it dont and the fuse in the plug is ok then this switch will need replacing and then it should be working again.

it might be worth changing the fuse just to make sure its not that make sure you change it with one of the same type else the fuse will blow

try pushing the door shut further and you may find it will come back on.

let me know how you get on ok

I have wtmc 3300 and I am trying to change which way the door swings. I am having a hard time removing the plastic latch without breaking it. Is there a trick?

There is a metal clip which is what gives the plastic latch the strength to hold the door clip when pushed in - this is what the hangup is.
There are plastic tabs on the top and bottom which pop out easily, but the metal tabs on the sides have wings that stop the clip from pulling out - so you either have to use a small flat screwdriver to hook the wings to pull past the metal hole it's pushed into (slowly toggling between sides) - or remove the control panel and squeeze the clip with pliers from the rear (inside).
I've just done this moments ago - however, I was stopped when I now realize the hinge doesn't mirror and thus I guess a "reverse" kit is needed - unfortunately nobody seems to have knowledge of such a kit... does anyone else know if a reverse kit is available?

Rhow to hook up a ge dryer change from a THREE

Put the green wire to the frame of the machine

White to nutral, red to a hot terminal, black to a hot terminal and make a place for the green.

You need a white wire in this case because the timer and light bulb are 110 V while the heater is 220 V. The green is for your safety.

Let me know if this works for you
