Initial reason for problem was dryer vent became disconnected from opening used for venting hot air. In very tight quarters -- both washer and dryer had to be moved to gain access to make vent repair. In this process there was accidental impact on the knob. Got apartment building super to assist. Fortunately the parts were still in stock for this old machine. The Parts Dispatcher was very knowledgeable and efficient in identifying the needed parts and mail service was very good.
