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

CustomerPaul from Wyoming OH

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.

Timer would not shut the dryer off automatically.

Replaceing the timer was very easy. I removed thgree screws from the top panel of the dryer. Unpluged the wires connected to the timer and removed it from the panel. Simply reversed the process to install the new timer. The whole process trook less than five minutes. To think I spent a year fighting with the dryer when the repar only took a few minutes...

Dryer would not stop running

It took me all of 4 minutes to replace the part much easier than I thought it would be. I use a T-15 Torx bit driver for the three screws on the top. VERY EASY.

CustomerBob from Franklin WI

Timer on dryer would not work correctly

I ordered the timer from Part Select (PS2036423)
and read one of the reviews on how to install it.

I just popped out the control knob (three pieces . . . use a flat knife to pop out the rubber face on the knob and then the other two follow), unscrewed the three screws that hold the control panel and pulled the control panel away . . . then I just slid out the old timer and slid in the new one.

Reinstalled the screws and the control knob and Taa Daa, the unit works great . . . I am sure I saved $75-100 by doing it myself.

The timer operation was not reliable.

Removed three screws on top of the panel that provided access to the timer. I then removed the control knob so that the old timer could be removed. The wiring harness was then removed.
The new timer was installed via the reverse operation.
The new timer works great!

Dryer would not start

After disconnecting the power supply I removed the 3 screws holding the face plate to gain access to the timer. I then removed the electrical connector and then the timer from the back of the face plate. Installation of the new part was a simple reverse to the preceding operation.

Bad dryer timer

It was easy to remove top panel with 3 screws. I use a thin knife to pop of the silver knob cover and then replaced timer. PartSelect is great. I first ordered the part from Sears, even though it was priced higher, thinking it was safer to work with them. I was wrong! Sears did not ship part on time, and even after I properly cancelled the order, I still do not have my money back from Sears. PartSelect was great, fast and cheaper. If I had to rely on Sears, I would have ended up buying a new dryer... I guess that may have been their goal.

Dryer timer not working

I removed all knobs, unscrewed top dryer head. Unplugged dryer electrical pack. Ordered part which came ASAP! Inserted dryer pack to large plug. Reinstalled all knobs, and screwed top cover back on. The only hard part was actually pulling to plug section out, and re-inserting new pack in. Dryer working excellent now!!! Thank you so much for making my life easier, with parts available upon ordering. Sincerely, Linda Dianne Frost

When timer knob pulled out the dryer would not start.

Shut off breaker to dryer. Used a small standard flat tip screw driver to remove plastic cover on timer knob. The ring and knob then pulled straight off. Next, removed three torx-head screws on the top of face plate, lifted face plate at a curved angle to gain access to the timer module. Slid timer module off the mount unpluged timer module, replaced timer module and plugger in electrical connector. Re-installed face plate, attached torx-head screws, installed knob and retainer. Works like a champ !! Easy repair Job !!!
