The number you have listed is for a washer, do you happen to have the model number for the dryer by chance?

This is a washer dryer combo and the number for the whole unit is ***********
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 3 years ago
actually the dryer will have it's own number on a sticker inside the door of the dryer, but you'll need to start a new question for me to help.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I don't see any stickers on the door of the dryer. There are two stickers when I open the dryer. The first number is###-##-####(space) 9711. The second number is###-##-####(space) 0405. If there is no other sticker will I be able to get help to find out what parts I need?
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 3 years ago
Sorry, please start a new question for the dryer but those are not the model numbers. The model will still start with a 417. I will not respond to this question anymore since it's not about the washer. You need to start a new question.
