This knob accepts a D-shaped shaft.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
I unplugged the dryer and then removed the top sheet metal cover with a nutdriver. I removed old timer with a phillips #2 screwdriver. I drew a diagram showing which color wires were connected to each point on the old timer. I unplugged the wires (a needle nose plier was needed for some of the tighter connectors) from the old timer and then connected the new timer. The whole repair would have been less than 30 minutes, but I dropped a screw into the open dryer. I had to remove the front sheet metal to retrieve the screw. This was the only annoying part and probably doubled the repair time, but even this was not too hard. I hate this dryer and will never buy another Fridigaire appliance, but I am happy with the quick service of PartSelect.com. It was faster and a lot cheaper for me to buy the part and do it myself instead of scheduling a repair.

Opened the package and pushed knob on,took about 2 minutes.
simply replaced both knobs , they were really in need of replacing .Also found electrical panel breaker was faulty , added new panel .Glad both problems are taken care of , and dryer works again .
After opening the lid, I used a can of compressed air to clear out the area of the timer. I transfered as many wires as I could while the timer was in it's original place, then when I could'nt reach any more I removed the old unit and did it one by one. It's quite a simple task if you don't get ahead of yourself, and pay attention. Having a aptitude for this helps also.
Pulled off the old one and put on the new one. It was as simple as that!
ordered part, 4 days delivery, snap on. DONE
Purchased new knob and put in place this company was great received with a day or two
Slid new knob on shaft. Done.
i order the part on line came within 2 day push on knob that easy.
I simply put new knob on the little metal post where it belonged. Simple as pie.
well guys replacing the knob was no big deal, but i initially thought that the timer was bad. i jumped the gun and ordered the timer on a wednesday and discovered on thursday upon further investagation that the back of the dial shaft was cracked creating the whole problem, so i ordered that and everything is fine once installed (& the timer is on the way back). my advice is check thoroughly and order once, you get less laughter from your wife on this one. thanx mcsgt(robert)
Removed the timer know and inserted the new one in its place. less than one minute work.Excellent response and fast delivery from Parts Select. Will use again, if necessary.
Very easy, slipped the old one off and placed the new one onThis was the greatest part ordering experience I think I have ever encountered.No problems with ordering, arrived on time and works beautifully.
Simply pulled the old knobs off & put the new ones on.It is disappointing that the knobs cracked at all. I guess all the repair guys who've come out since our kitchen remodel are right - nothing lasts anymore & expect a repair within 5 yrs.I ordered on a Monday & the knobs were delivered the next day, even though I chose only standard shipping. I was very, very pleased with PartSelect.com.
Ordered the knob, received it immediately, pushed the knob on without the assistance of any tools. I am handyman challenged sothis was a huge accomplishment for me. Thanks!
