Question:

When the cycle finishes my dryer will not automatically turn off anymore. Is there a problem with my timer knob or something? Never had this happen before!

Marge
Answer:

Hello Marge, if the timer motor has power and the timer is still not turning off, you may need to replace the timer on your dryer WE4M353. This can be tested using a multi-meter tool. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Question:

How do I know if I should replace the knob or the whole timer assembly. My wife said last time she used the dryer when she turned the timer it felt “weird” and now the machine is not starting. I read that usually it is bc of a faulty timer or timer knob but who can I determine which it is?

Raymond
Answer:

Hi Raymond, this problem could be caused by the knob or the timer on your dryer. I would start with the knob. Pull it off the shaft and check it for visible damage. If the knob is not the problem then you will need to inspect your dryer timer. I hope this helps.

Dryer knob broke

Pulled off old knob and snapped new one into place. Took about 5 seconds. Must be a lame design cause my dryer's less than 2 years old and the knob snapped on the inside and wouldn't turn. Easy to fix though.

Timer knob skipped everywhere & dryer always ran when timer was on

It turns out the back of my dryer timer knob was cracked, so everytime I would turn it it would just slip to any setting/time. This was just the matter of pulling out the knob & pushing in the new one. The other issue I had was my dryer would always run without having to start it. This is because the rotary "start" switch was bad. It just took a philips screwdriver to take the backsplash off the dryer to replace the switch. So easy my wife or kids could've done this!!

A different knob was broken.

The timer knob was sent, but the part on the dryer that was broken was a different knob. We were able to use the knob, but it was much bigger than the old knob.

I believe the diagram for the dryer showed the timer knob, but not the three other knobs.

I wish we would have received the correct knob, but the supplied knob is working for us.

Needed new start knob and control

The start unit was difficult to install. It kept falling apart after I would install it in place. The new timer unit was easy to install but does not work without using a plyers to turn the dial. The knob just keeps turning because the shaft to the control is very very tight and the knob just keeps turning so I need to use the plyers to set the timer. I am completely dissatisfied with the part and cannot be without the dryer to wait for a new part. This was a bad idea for me to try this without a repair man...... In order to save money Sincerely; James
