First, I unplugged the dryer and removed the screws that held the dial housing. Next, I checked the wires to ensure they were still hooked up to the dryer settng device. Then, I removed the broken portion of the old knob and reassembled the dial housing. Finally, I slipped the new knob onto the shaft and tested the machine. Everything worked like a charm.
