If "the door switch sometimes clicks and sometimes feels spongy", odds are it is defective.

I've purchased a 4 wire dryer cord for my Magic Chef dryer, model # YE20HN3. I'm not sure/certain as to where to hook/connect the green wire on my dryer.

Hi, The green wire is simply the "ground" or "earth" wire, it has to be connected to the chassis/cabinet of your dryer. If there is no place to connect the wire which already exists you'll need to find a nut & bolt that will allow you to fasten it to the dryer. Hope that answer's your question. Thanks for coming to fixya. Macmarkus :)

My magic chef dryer just won't start, was working perfectly yesterday, I have checked the breakers, they are fine. What would cause it to just stop?

Check your switch on the door first. Its like a light switch. If you have a volt ohm meter switch it to the ohm setting and test both leads coming from the switch. Have the power cord unplugged first to prevent shoc. No power is needed to test Ohm ratings

Hello dybarra_fami, first suspect is the door switch. Check the little button on the door & the switch it presses when you close the door. Merry Chrismas.
