I ordered both control knob ($6.46) and timer knob ($22.61).I didn't need/use the timer knob, so I returned it. I switched out the control knob by removing plastic pin and replaced w/ new control knob & pin. My 3-yr old grandson sat on the dryer and held the flashlight. I certainly saved mucho by not calling "repair-man"..Total repair was $6.46 + S & H.Now, if we can just keep this baby (family of 6)going til it's time to downsize.
