The post the dryer start knob rest on broke off flush with the Rotary Start Switch. I had to remove the back of the control panel to get to the RSS. Determining that it could be easily removed, I removed it. I doubted that gluing the post back on would hold since it was all one plastic piece. So I opted to research and find the RSS and replace it.
