Part arrived earlier than expected & when replacing the knob I merely lined it up with the timer shaft which was a 1/2 round shaft. It slipped on very easy & I just pushed the knob on as far as it would go. Replacement of the knob makes life much easier in being able to turn the timer on without use of a wrench. Very, very satisified customer.

I thought I was going to have to buy a new dryer. I thought it was the whole cycling mechanism....I could see $500.00 being spent. When I tried to take off the knob it fell in pieces in my hand. I tried to get by with just turning it with a pliers to to any cycle and just time it till the clothes got dry. Then I thought "I wonder if I could google it and maybe find anothe part. Never have done that before!!" I narrowed my search to Westinghouse dryer knob.. On the back of the knob was a part # ..I included that too. I went to Part Select.Bingo, almost immediately it came up...with pictures and dimensions. There was my part and with the number on it. I ordered it immediately, The cost was $26.00. I was told via e-mail the part was available and it would take 3-5 days. The time was 4:00PM. The next day at 3:00PM the door bell rang and there was my part...in 23 hours.In 15 minutes the knob was on and the dryer was working perfectly.My wife was elated. I was proud of myself for being able to actually do it myself and save us $475.00Twas a great experience and gave me confidence to tackle other jobs around the house.Thank You for allowing me to tell my story.
The most simple repair I have ever done! The knob was shattered and no way to glue it or reattach it to the stem. A bit of the knob plastic was still stuck on the metal stem on the dryer to which the knob attaches. I simply pulled that bit of plastic off with a pliers and popped the new knob on - EASY!
First i used pliers to remove old knob from the selecting mount. New knob slid right into place on the selecting mount. Whole job took less then a minute.
Just removed the knob by hand and replaced. I couldn't find the part number on internet but your site showed the knobs for this dryer. The picture was the exact same as mine, eventhough it had a different part number so I ordered it. IT came in one day and was exactly the same. Thanks for the good pictures so I could compare the part.
The part number was easy to find, thanks to the schematics provided on your site. When the package arrived (faster than expected!) I simply had to replace the one which had broken off. It fit perfectly!
Took the broken knob off and put the new one on. Parts select was great and the shipping was fast and product arrived as described.
I was in despair. My dryer knob broke and I had laundry to dry. Boohoo! Alas, after a lengthy internet search, I found Partselect! It was easy to locate my dryer knob and order. I received my order, replaced the knob on my dryer and my life was made easier. Thank you, Partselect!
