Start switch won't start dryer

My wife and I had put up with this silly switch for months where we would continually pull and pull on the switch which used to take only one pull. I found PartSelect on line and chased down the part number I needed. Unfortunately, I misread the correct part number which was different for different serial numbers within the same model number. PartSelect solved this by shipping me the correct one after I discovered my mistake (the part originally sent would now start the dryer as it was supposed to but the timer didn't advance). Anyway, I had reviewed the other "installation instructions" available. It was slightly unclear to me, from reading the other descriptions, of how to remove the timer knob. The knob is in three (3) parts. To remove it, take a pocket knife or other very thin blade and slip under the silver cap and gently pry it off (it's held by four plastic studs which engage into the middle portion of the knob). Once the silver cap is off, remove the middle portion and the inner white portion by lifting straight off. Then, remove the three #10 star screws at the top of the control panel. The control panel then pivots toward you and you can lift it out of the frame to make access to the timer even easier. Next, gently remove the cable harness on the left side of the timer control assembly by depressing the tab in the middle of the connection piece and rocking gently back and forth (it is fairly snug) until you have disconnected the cable. Next, depress the plastic tab on the left side of the timer assembly and gently slide the whole timer assembly to the left (it has a plastic tab on each of the other three sides that slide under plastic holders). Insert the new timer control assembly and simply reverse all of the steps listed above taking care that the plastic feet on the new timer control assembly are engaged under the receiving plastic keepers. This is a really easy repair and took me less than 15 minutes to complete.

Knob pulled off and I had been turning it on with pliers

removed the 3 screws holding the front cover on to the timer, unsnapped the timer, unpluged it and plugged in the new one then snapped it back in place. put the front cover back and placed the timer cap back on it works like new now and saved me $140 dollars. Very happy to not look like I am trying to extract a tooth when turning on the dryer

Dryer difficult to start

When the timer was pulled out to start the dryer it would not consistently start up. I generally had to wiggle it around to get the dryer started.

I replaced the timer. To do this you need to pull off the front cover of the timer knob with a small screw driver I then used a needle nose plier to sqeeze together two pieces of plastic that hold the knob in place. The knob is then removed.
Next, there are three screws at the top of the dryer that need to be removed to take off the front cover to the instrument panel.
Removing the old timer is easy. Take off the wiring harness. In removing the harness, there is a small tab that needs to be pushed down.
To remove the old timer, there is a small tab on the instrument panel that holds the timer in place that needs to be pushed down. From there it is easy to slide out the old timer and replace it.
