Question:

The control knob on my dryer will move around the different controls but will not stay in place when I choose one. Does this usually mean I need a new knob or the piece inside the knob or both?

Bobbi
Answer:

Hi Bobbi, if the knob WE01X20374 is damaged then it needs to be replaced. If it is just the insert WE1X980 that is missing/damaged that can be replaced by itself. Best of luck with this repair.

Question:

I broke the insert underneath my selector knob and although the knob is fine I need a new insert. How can I take the knob off without breaking it to make this installation?

Shawna
Answer:

Hi Shawna, the knob can be removed by using a bent paper clip to reach behind the knob and pull the U-clip out. Then the knob can pop off. Once the knob is off, the insert can be removed the same way, or by using a small screwdriver. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Question:

What is the point of the insert inside the knob? Ive had my dryer over ten years and these are the original knobs and just recently theres been visable damage to the knob so I checked underneith and the insert is damaged and not all there. Will my knob work without this piece or do I need to replace it

Sheldon
Answer:

Hi Sheldon, the insert is needed to keep the knob secure on the shaft of the switch. If the insert is damaged, the knob will need replacing. I hope this helps!

Timer knob cracked twice. Found out the timer switch was bad.

Removed the 3 knobs. They just pull off. Removed 6 screws on the back side of the control panel. The front (plastic panel then just separates from the back). Then look at how the switch is mounted on the plastic panel. There should be 2 small pieces of plastic that holds it in. Carefully twist the switch in the appropriate direction so it comes free. Before you remove any wires from the old switch remember what colors go where ! I used needle nose pliers to remove the connections from the switch. Make the new connections, mount the switch, put the screws back in the panel. BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING. UNPLUG THE ELECTRICAL CORD !!!

Start knob and plastic underneath broken

It was so incredibly simple! The site made it foolproof to find the right parts - and the actual replacement job itself was easier than we ever could have imagined. Background: I love to do laundry - I mean A LOT! So - I use the washer and dryer every night to wash the familie's clothing and blankets and towels. After heavy use - the outer knob stripped out. We threw it away and were using pliers to turn the small plastic knob underneath. After a few months - that plastic wore down and we could not turn it on at all!

Dryer making grinding noises

We live in a Condominium, space is tight especially in the Utility room where the washer/dryer are located. Turned dryer breaker off at the electical panel.
Removed the top cover and front assembly w/door and front drum support, right where the unit was located. Had to gain rear access to loosen drum drive belt so undid the dryer vent hose to floor connection through a front acess hole. Moved the unit out to the breakfast nook as well as disconnecting the power cable from the wall socket. Removed the rear access panel covers and unhooked the drive belt. At the front removed the top screws off the lower cross member to allow spreading of the side covers to allow the removal of the drum. Removed drum and found the bearing bushing gone, reduced to powder.
Using the supplied instuction sheet, replaced the rear bearing assembly, replaced the drum after vacumming the whole interior and started the reassembly of the unit using the new belt and moved the unit back into place. Reconnected the power cable and dryer vent then lastly replaced the lint filter and selector knob. Closed the breaker and turned on the machine, no noise!!!
Incidently I am 78 years old. Thanks PartSelect.

It would over flow with water

First I removed the 4 screws that held the element in place. I pulled it out, and than I decided to check on the hose that was attached to the water level pressure switch, so I opened the front of the washer and sure enough, all I had to do was clean the hose attached to the water sensor, and as it turned out, I really did not need to change the water sensor, but at least I have a water level pressure switch, water sensor just in case I really do need to change it.

Could not adjust timer/switch

I had immediately assumed the problem was the timer/switch, P/N WE4M365 and foolishly ordered that part. Should you ever encounter non-adjustment of the timer/switch, try another knob from the console. That was the only problem here as it turns out. Also, the knob DOES come with the "D" shaped insert clip.

The timer switch on our dryer

The person on the phone was so helpful in locating the exact timer needed. We received the prt 3 days later and it was so easy to install. I would highly recommend this company. A local shop wanted to charge 3x more then what we paid.
