Loop a piece of string behind the "Start" button and pull forward on the string to pop the knob off the switch's post.
Access the interior of the control panel. Depending on your model of dryer, there are several ways to access the interior of the control panel. On older dryers, there will be an access panel along the back of the control panel that can be removed once all of the retaining screws have been removed. On newer dryers, the control panel is held in place by screws in the front or spring clips. Remove the plastic end caps on the control panel and remove the screws underneath. If your dryer has no end caps, slide a putty knife under the corners of the control panel and lift up on the knife to release the clips. Rotate the control panel toward the rear of the dryer to access the interior.
Unplug the wires from the switch by sliding them off the contact terminals on the switch. Make a note which wire connects to which terminal so you can easily connect them to the new switch.
Press the release tab to unlock the switch and slide it out of its socket. If you have an older dryer, remove the retaining screw to remove the switch. Slide a new switch into the socket and press it down until the release tab locks into place. If you removed a retaining screw, replace the screw. Reconnect the wires.
Rotate the control panel back down on the dryer or replace the rear access panel. Replace the knob and reconnect the dryer vent. Plug the dryer back into the electrical outlet.
