Googled dryer start knob, Part Select was second site I clicked on, found within 1 min, part was inexpensive, easy to order, arrived quickly and fit perfectly. Excellent online ordering experience.
It is just a knob that starts the dryer. The knob is rather large, but it turns on the dryer. No tools needed. It took 5 seconds.
Removed all the knobs but the master washing machine control knob, then the control and cover panels by removing the two screws that held each one. Then removed the end plastic pieces to allow access to screws holding the switch onto control panel. Used pliers to pull wires off the old switch and put them back on new switch. Screwed it back in place and re-attached plastic end pieces. Re-attached the control panel, then the cover panel under the control panel.
This is a combo washer/dryer. First, I replaced the Idler Arm pulley but the noise didn't stop - it was easy to replace with two screws holding a access panel door in the back of the unit. Next I had to take off the front of the dryer unit to access the drum bearing and replace the dryer belt. There were many screws and electrical connections to remove. After replacing the drum bearing, there was a plate on the back that had to be held while attaching the screws from the front. Since I was alone, I taped the plate in place to hold it while I attached the screws.
The cat was not used for mechanical advantage. Rather he was present for worker's safety regulations. He is a bit of a tool though.Firstly, I removed the knob from the packaging. Secondly, I stuck it on the peg. I am not a professional repair person and do not condone or recommend any of the methods used during this repair procedure.

Had to trial and error my way to getting the control panel off. The parts diagrams on this site were very helpful, but didn't tell the entire story. Started to pull the entire front dryer panel off then found that only needed to remove two panel screws to gain access to all the screws holding the control panel on. With those removed the panel came off as a unit and was easily disassembled. Screws securing the switches are easlily stripped, so be careful. Rest of job was just pulling off wiring clips and reattaching. Everything went back together easily.
Pulled old knob off and pushed new one on
I pulled the panel removing 4 screws then removed the switch panel by removing the two screws holding that in place. I pulled the switch panel down and removed the 2 screws holding the switch in place. I then removed the two wires connecting the switch and reinstalled everything. The whole process was less than 15 minutes.
Use needle nose pliers to remove small metal piece,that was left from the broken knob.Slip the new knob on.Very easy repair.
Ordered the part with the Model #, it came in the mail; put it on!!!
simple fixes, knob broke required a good tug with rocking motion , put on new knob with a push. dryer switch required a screw dryer to pop out , 2 wires on back required a tug on each to remove from lug ( blade) and a push to place back on new switch, That was about it.s
I opened the package, took out the knob, walked to the machine, checked to make sure the knob matched the rest of the knobs and placed the knob on the correct pin. Rotated the knob to make sure it was in place, it was, and I walked away. Very simple.
threw away the old cracked knob and used pliers to turn on the dryer for a couple of days while I waited for the replacement part. Didn't call the repair man for this one. Got the new part, which appeared to be slightly tougher inside than the original, and popped it on. piece of cake!
used pliers to take off knob.receive new part put on new one.
