I thought I was going to have to buy a new dryer. I thought it was the whole cycling mechanism....I could see $500.00 being spent. When I tried to take off the knob it fell in pieces in my hand. I tried to get by with just turning it with a pliers to to any cycle and just time it till the clothes got dry. Then I thought "I wonder if I could google it and maybe find anothe part. Never have done that before!!" I narrowed my search to Westinghouse dryer knob.. On the back of the knob was a part # ..I included that too. I went to Part Select.Bingo, almost immediately it came up...with pictures and dimensions. There was my part and with the number on it. I ordered it immediately, The cost was $26.00. I was told via e-mail the part was available and it would take 3-5 days. The time was 4:00PM. The next day at 3:00PM the door bell rang and there was my part...in 23 hours.In 15 minutes the knob was on and the dryer was working perfectly.My wife was elated. I was proud of myself for being able to actually do it myself and save us $475.00Twas a great experience and gave me confidence to tackle other jobs around the house.Thank You for allowing me to tell my story.
