The information on how to change the door switch is in the image below. It also shows how to access the other components of the dryer so ignore the other instructions.

Remember to unplug the power cord before starting so no voltage is present while servicing the door switch.

I hope this information helps you change the switch but if you have any additional questions the submit another question.

The light staying on inside when the door is closed does indicate a door switch failure. I recommend replacing this component.

You can order a new door switch from the

Sears PartsDirect

website. The part number for the door switch is 8574875.

The procedure for accessing the door switch is shown in the image below. Be sure that you

unplug the dryer

to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

The sound of only a click when there is wet laundry is a terrible feeling. I located a previous expert answer that may get you on the way to dry laundry while you wait for your expert. If you can add the model number of your dryer it may help the expert provide a better answer.

Diagnosing Dryers can be difficult. While you wait for the expert to review your model, you can check a similar question from a previous expert post if you like. I attached the links below. If you do decide to have a technician diagnose and make repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the handy scheduler.
