My wife and I bickered for years, until warranty ran out.I tried household repairs, even substituted a vintsge radio dial. Finally, my wife said, "Why don't you search the Internet?
I Googled "Whirlpool Dryer Parts" and selected PartSelect.
Enterimng the part number, I reached a schematic. Clicking on the timer dial skirt, I was treated to a sound video of a repairman replacing the dial skirt. I fired off payement of about $11 for the part with UPS postage, and in about 3-4 days received it. After snapping the dial skirt onto its two companion parts, I pushed it onto the timer shaft, and the job was done.
