This knob accepts a D-shaped shaft.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
Unplugged and raised the top of the dryer (This allows access to the screws that attach the front of the dryer to the body of the dryer). 2nd- removed the two screws inside the front and down approx 5 inches on each side of the front. Also remove the small plastic tie-wrap that holds the wiring to the top of the dryer. It will be on the right hand side if facing the front of the dryer. Unplug the two plastic wire plugs that attach the wiring to the controls. Use a flat screw driver to pry the front away from the body of the dryer (this will unattach clips that hold the front in place. Remove the felt guide. The factory glue will keep some of the felt attached to the housing. This is where I used the utility blade to remove the rest of the felt. Then I used the soft wire-wheel to remove the rest of the residue of the glue. Probably not necessary. I replaced the top felt first with the teflon guides on it. I used spring loaded clamps to hold it in place. The clamps were probably not necessary either because the glue holds very well. Next I replaced the lower felt. While the front of the dryer was removed this was a good time to use the nozzle on the sweeper to remove the lint that was built up inside of the dryer. Reverse your steps and put your dryer back in service. You may need to reach through the door to align the drum over the felt in order to re-attach the front of the dryer.

I ordered a switch and a knob for a GE dryer.A neighbor had this washer and a dryer sitting in their driveway—getting rid of them because of a broken switch and knobs.A repair man told them it would be $250. My neighbor gave the washer and dryer to me for free and I gave them to a single Mom who was in need.The repair took me 10 min and cost me less than $75 thanks to your web site help.Here’s a tip for owners of a GE Profile washer and dryer—The plastic knobs are weak and split where they connect with the switch. Pull them off and wrap (6-8 times) the outside diameter of the connection part of the knob with electrical tape.Do-it-yourself with partselect.com!Pete HaasCarlsbad CA
