Replacing switch start on GE front loading dryer with control above

I have a stackable washer/dryer, and need to replace the switch start. I received the part today, but cannot figure out how to install. Do I remove the two screws on the front where all of the knobs are or are they they two in the back? Thanks for you help

SOURCE: How to seperate a Kenmore dryer from the washer under it?

This is probably a model that has two access holes at the bottom front of the dryer -about 4-5" from each side- usually closed off with plastic discs. Just an inch up from the washing machine.  Pry out the plastic discs with a flat screwdriver and you should see a screw inside each of the two openings.  Remove the screws and you will be able to tip the dryer up and slide it back a few inches to detatch from the back.

Use two people to lift the dryer down as it is bulky but not too heavy.

If you arer going to replace the washer with a Bosch Axxis model, it will simply plug into the back of the dryer (if it is electric) because normally the dryers are 220 VAC. Works A-OK.

Disconnect power. Turn off gas.

Open the door and look along the front upper edge of the door opening. In the top left and right rounded corner of the door opening you will see screws going upward into the top. Remove both screw and raise the top.

Look down inside the open top dryer from above on each left and right edge there will be a screw holding the front assembly to the case of the dryer. Remove 1 on each side.

The dryer front can now be pulled toward you about 3 inches at the top and then lifted off the bottom clips and swung away to the right from the case. Be careful not to strain any wires connected between the case and the front.

This will expose the underside of the dryer along with motor, Gas valve and venting for checking and vacuuming. Be careful of the ignitor. It is very brittle and can be easily broken

Gas service should should be done by professionals only as improper servicing can cause fires, explosion or death from asphyxiation. TEST for leaks after reassembling gas parts.

Perform thorough vacuuming and reverse the above process for reassembly. Good Luck

No power to washer, dryer has bpower...

Might be a broken wire going down to the washer portion. I found that once on a stack dryer: Remove the control panel and look for a loose quick connect or broken wire.That was what was wrong with this un I think. Drop the splash pannel first then remove the screws to control and drop it out then check quick connects and wires is what I would do. -PawPaw

I have a stackable washer and dryer. Both have worked fine except recently clothes started getting caught between the drum and the front frame of the dryer. My husband pulled it apart checked the screws...

You may have a felt seal in the front that needs replaced. A wire off the pin switch could be off, and you will see the pin switch when you open the door, and make sure it is clicking.

Start Switch Broke

Hello Friend, Its easy to replace the start switch on your dryer. Just remove the four screws at top of control panel. You will need a start tip bit to remove the screws. Once removed just pivot the panel towards front of washer exposing the inner backside of panel. Now you can easily remove the screws that hold on the start switch and replace with new one. Happy to help, Tim. Please rate my help to you. Thanks.

Kenmore stackable washer dryer. Dryer buzzer is

Just solved this problem for a Kenmore stackable washer dyer! Sorry I don't have the model number. I have a baby on the way and a small house. I was pretty sure I would get no sleep between the baby crying and the baby crying because of that darn buzzer!

The buzzer is attached to the timer with a quick connect post. Access the controls by unscrewing the large panel above the washer door. You will need a square screwdriver or a very small flathead and some vice grips to get it started. The panel will fall forward onto the washer. In mine there was a pouch with an electrical diagram of the unit. To release the controls, two more screws must be removed from the sides of the small panel housing the controls. Once again you need a square screwdriver or a very small flathead and some vice grips to get it started. Once these are out you should be able to lift the control panel up and it will fall forward. Get a small box or stand to put on the washer. This will support the panel as the wires are not that long. On the left side of the timer controls you will see a quick connect post marked with an "H". Disconnect this wire and your problems are solved. Beautiful silence! I put electrical tape on the quick connect wire. Not sure if I needed to as I'm not an electrician. Hope this helps.

Dryer trips breaker as soon as i try to start it.

Use or borrow a volt ohm meter and check for a grounded hot wire. You may also be exceeding the start up load on the 20 amp breaker. Test this theory (after you make sure that there are no ground faults) by starting the dryer in a "air fluff" mode without heat. If the dryer starts in the "no heat mode", switch the heat on - if you blow the breaker you know that the 20 amp breaker cannot handle it. Before you do any of the above - check your dryer manual for the service requirments. If you don't have the manual go to the mfg. web site and download it.
