I looked in my appliance paperwork, found the model number, keyed it in, located and ordered the knob. It arrived in a few days and voila, pushed new knob on and dryer is back in great working order. Thanks!

The job was very easy, I just unscrewed the back of the unit (6 screws) and the two screws securing the timer in the front. I then disconnected the timer. All I had to do was reverse the process and I was done. It took less than 15 minutes.
First I located the two clips holding the top of the machine on and opened the top of the dryer. I then disconnected the two wires on the door switch and removed the two screws holding the front panel on. After removing the front panel, I vacuumed all the loose lint and as far into the lint trap as possible. I then removed the back vent panel and released the drum belt from the pulley. I pulled the drum out of the support bearing. Then I removed two screws holding the drum support bearing, bracket, and grounding ball clip. I replaced the grounding ball and drum support bearing with new parts, (as the drum support bearing was damaged without the grounding ball). Then I reversed the order and put the dryer back together. Overall I felt the job was easy and I'm happy to be able to use a quiet machine again!!!
Used screw driver to pop out old switch, detached wires, attached new switch to wires and popped switch back in to positionl. Done.
I popped the knobs on without tools. Easy! I saved $36.00 buying directly from you instead of my local repair man
only needed to attach knob with one hand.
I unplugged the dryer from the wall and removed the back panel to replace the switch. It only had two wires on the switch I pulled then off and placed them on the new switch and put the unit back together and replaced all the knobs with new ones and it looks new again. Thanks to Parts Select.
I know that the knobs on the Gibson dryers break as they are plastic and the back cracks so it won't turn. I have had to get several new ones over the years. I went to Google put in Gibson dryer knob and found it, I had the model number so that helped. I had the part within 24 hrs, awesome service from PartSelect.Emma W
I removed the cracked knob and attempted to replace with the new knob. Unfortunately my new knob did not fit. The internal diameter of the replacement knob was 2mm too small. I did not want to go through the hassle of returning and requesting another knob. So I just made it work. Thanks
Opened the plastic bag, took out the new knob, slid it on and DONE I'm not using pliers anymore!!
Remove the two scews that held it in place. Pulled the element out far enough to replace it. I left the old part on so as not to get confused by which wire went where, and just replaced the part. Very easy.
Replaced the knob
Pushed the new timer knob on the dryer. No tools were necessary.
Sooooo Easy. A no brainer. Just line up the knob and push it back on!
Slid on new knob. The turn around time on receiving the part was amazing. We were back in business within 2 days.
