Title: Frigidaire front loading washer door lock switch
Post by: KJCMaintenance on June 28, 2010, 07:52:56 PM
Can someone post the repair instructions for replacing switch part # 131763202


Also is it possible to make this repair with the dryer stacked on top?  My specific model is: GLTF2940ES0

Thanks in advance.

Hi KJCMaintenance,

Welcome to the forum!

I split your question off into a new topic being you had a different model appliance.

Now we just need to wait for one of our technicians to post a answer for you.

Thanks for taking the time to join our forum.

Pretty easy to change:

Tools needed:
#2 Phillips screwdriver, Small flat blade screwdriver.

1. Unplug the machine.
2. Take your flat blade screwdriver to the bottom of the door gasket on the outside where it meets the cabinet.  Look and feel for the wire band that holds it fast. Then pry that metal band out and away from the machine being careful not to damage the door gasket.
3. Grasp outer edge of the gasket and tuck it inward towards the tub to loosen it from the front of the machine.
4. Remove the screws on the right side that hold the switch.
5. Slide old switch to the opening you just made, and remove the wire harness
6. Install new switch

When re-attaching the gasket back onto the machine, it is nice to have a 3rd or 4th hand.
I use my left knee to hold the gasket and band firmly while using my hands to flip that band around nice and tight.

You do not have to remove the dryer from the top.
