This part fixes the following symptoms:
The inner piece of the knob cracked so it just spun on the dryer shaft it's suppose to turn. Ordered a new knob, slipped it on and all works great again now.

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.
Snapped the parts right on. Fast service and easy repair.
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.
Pulled old knob off. Used visegrips to turn selector and when new knob arrived. Took off visegrips - pushed on new knob. Bingo! I'm a genius.
Replaced timer knob and timer plas.shaft. Very simple. Pair of needlenose pliers and screwdriver. Removed back plate on dryer control panel unpluged wires from old timer. Replaced wire to new timer replaced back panel job complete.
Just put the new knob on.
Replaced switch by taking out top 3 screws in back of control panel. Hold new switch in one hand and took out wire(female discount) one by one as they matched old switch. Put back in holding slot, screwed back together, DONE. If I had someone help it wouldn't have taken 10 minutes
UNPLUG APPLIANCE PREVIOUS DAY.removed metal panel(six screws) behind knobs.compare new switch to old. transfer wires to new switch one at a time. gently turn switch counter clockwise while lifting just enough on plastic that prevents switch from turning. install new switch opposite manner.I added one very small wood screw in whole provided to stabilize switch. must be short and skinny1/8x #2 so as not to break or protrude plastic.Maybe GE left out of mine and others have screw?Knobs just pull off and push on except the timer on washer has a clip between knob and bezel (see video on website.)
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!!
I ordered a new knob. The new knob was not broken, so it all worked out great.
So simple....just put it on! Sure beats paying a $65 service charge (which we did the 1st time). Have a feeling that I'll be ordering another one.
It just popped into place :)
All I had to do was snap it on and was ready to go. How easy was that. Would order any other parts again.
removed old knob, cleaned surface under knob, sprayed metal knob on dryer with wd-40, put new knob on. useing the wd-40 makes the knob turn a lot easyer.
