    Did you ever find out where this part goes.

    We found the exact same part and can't figure out where it goes.

    This cap goes inside the upper inner section of the facade. It is clipped in place initially tighly, then becomes loose with the heat. Same issue on my GE dryer. If you don't find a way to affix this cap, the opening will continue to trap buttons, thus damaging your clothes. CAUTION : this may be a safety feature allowing young kids to get some air while removing the cap (the only translucent part of the sump when door is closed). If you want to affix the cap to the door, pull opn the top starting from the front side where it is clipped, then install the cap from the inside, then secure the left and right clips with a small piece of 1/4" plywood adjusted between the clips, and eventually secured from the inside with a stainless steel flat head screw for wood. Make sure the screw head is flush with the cap face. I could not find a replacement part. Hope it helps.

    The part sells for $14.87 + $7.49 (S&H) (ouch!) from GE spare parts store under P/N 131870700. This is actually the "Light hole plug"

Thanks for posting, thought it might have been in the sheets before we put them through the wash, but couldn't figure out what the plastic part was. Since a few people also found this part number in their dryer, I stuck my head in and saw where it came from... inside dryer, looking out the door, it is just above the door opening (see replaced cap in photo)I FOUND A SMALL COVER IN MY WASHER/DRYER - 5_13_2012_7_43_32_am.jpg

This cap goes inside the upper inner section of the facade as described in the picture. It is clipped in place initially tighly, then becomes loose with the heat. Same issue with my GE dryer.
If you don't find a way to affix this cap, the opening will continue to trap buttons, thus damaging your clothes.
CAUTION : this may be a safety feature allowing young kids to get some air while removing the cap (the only translucent part of the sump when door is closed).
If you want to affix the cap to the door:
1. Unplug your dryer from the wall outlet.
2. Pull up and remove the top lid of the dryer secured only by two large metal clips in the front.
3. Buy a stainless steel flat head screw for wood 3/4" long in the hardware or decking section of your local DYI store. Torx drives are preferred since they don't offer sharp edges. Bring the cap with you for the associate to select your best fit.
4. Since you are there get a small plywood drop (usually free), in which you cut a rectangular piece of 1/4" plywood about 1 x 2.25-2.30 " that would fit very snuggly lengthwise between the left and right side clips. If you mess up, you can shim with aluminum wrap.
5. Drill a small hole in the center of the cap and chamfer until the screw flat head fits flush with the cap. NO PROTRUSION ALLOWED.
6. Install the cap from the inside of the sump
7. Install the piece of wood to pry open in place the left and right clips in place
8. Secure the assembly in place with the screw.
9. Install the top lid and clip in place
10. Plug your dryer into the wall outlet

NOTE 1: Using duct tape or even aluminum tape to secure the cap from the inside is NOT a good idea, since the glue and the tape will melt on your clothes.

NOTE 2: It would work better with 2 screws, two holes, etc. 1.25 " apart, or using flat head machine screws, washers, self-locking nuts and a tapered end plastic block, but this is for advanced DYI addicts only.

I could not find a replacement part. Hope it helps.

Could you check that model number again?Could you please describe the problem you are having?
Does the dryer run at all?
Check the door switch. When you push and release it you should hear a click. If not, replace with a new switch.

S3470, no keys no combination


To order replacement keys, for small chests and files, you will need to know the key numbers which can be found right around where the key goes in. It should be a stamped number, letters, or both located around the keyhole. For Personal, Home and Home/Office Safes, you will need the model number and serial number. I think that the most economical place to buy keys is from www.SentrySafeShop.com. You can do a search for "lost keys" and it will give you a screen where you can enter your model number and key number. (It is a very easy screen to use. They just need 1.)Model # and 2.)Serial or Key #.)

In Summary:
For Small Chests or Files: A lock reference number is required. It will be a letter, a number, a letter and number, or "blank" (no letter or number), engraved/located on the silver cylinder of the lock. These are model numbers 0500, 1100, 1170, etc...

For Personal, Home and Home/Office Safes: (model numbers will begin with: S0, S3, S4, S5; I0, I3, I4, I5; A3, A4, A5; J3, J4, J5; L0, L3, ,CS,CSW,DA,DS,KS,KSW,MS,MSW,OA,OS,and SC): Indicate your model number and the safe serial number found on the front right-hand side of the door, between the hinges.
Here is the direct link to the key replacement screen: http://www.sentrysafeshop.com/Keys-Sentry-Safe-Replacement-Keys-p/keys.htm
You will need to use the following link for combination retrievals: http://www.sentrysafeshop.com/Lost-Combination-Sentry-Safe-Combination-p/lost%20combination.htm

The age is determined by the SERIAL number. If you post back with each appliance serial number, I can tell you what year they were manufactured. Include any letter designations that are in the serial number too.

Error Code


I don't have a manual on the newest dryer like you have, but one of the models just older than yours has a F23 code that indicates a shorted thermistor.( temp sensor )
Since it is new you need to call for service. They will usually look up the code and tell you if it is anything you need to check but most likely you will need a repairman to repair it in warranty.
Post back if you have any questions.
