  1. Hello fryguy14, I'm sorry you are having this problem with the dryer. Make sure that the dryer door is properly closed. A problem with the door switch could be causing this failure. The door switch harness connection can be disconnected from the door switch harness. The door switch can be tested with an Ohm meter after disconnecting the door switch harness connection. You can access the door switch connection after removing the top panel. There are a couple of screws located at the back of the main top to remove. Slide the top back and lift it off. The lid switch harness is located along the top of the left side panel which leads to the door switch. Continuity should be measured with the Ohm meter when connecting the two Ohm meter leads across the blue and white wires when the door is shut. If it does not measure continuity, replace the door switch. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the top panel. If you do not feel confident making this check, I recommend calling for service and have a technician make this check. You can call 1-800-469-4663 to schedule a tech to come out. I hope this will help you.

      It is the door switch because there is not continuity between the white and blue wires. how hard is it replace the door switch and what part or part number would i need to buy?

      The door switch is not difficult to replace. If you have made the resistance check, then you already have access, to the switch harness. Now, to replace the switch, it will pry out. You can use a small screwdriver to pry the switch out. The new switch # W10318609 will come complete with the harness and it will push back in place. I hope this will help you.
