The door switch on my dryer is broken (the rocker part of the switch just hangs loose) and the dryer won't start. I have the part number, but I won't be able to get one for several days. Is this switch really just a switch? Or does it serve some other function. I'm wondering if it's relatively safe to just cut off the switch and short the wires together behind the molex connector for the next couple days until I can get the part.
