I have a GFDS355EL1MS GE front loading dryer. Today when I went to turn it on, I pressed the power button and heard a loud snap. Now the power button hangs loosely in the socket and I cannot turn on my dryer. I am attempting to remove the front plastic panel so I can try to fix the button myself, but I cannot remove it. There is a single screw on the back of the front panel and removing this screw does not free the front panel. There are plastic clips somewhere I cannot see but I cannot undo. I am afraid to force it in fear of the plastic shattering like the cheaply made power button.
The diagrams I can find online show three screws on the back of the panel. My dryer only has one single screw with none other visible from the front, sides, or underneath the control panel.
Any advice would be swell. This housewife is about ready to set every GE appliance on fire -- They're nothing but trouble.
