Dryer timer operation was restricted causing multiple broken (plastic) knobs.

Turned off the electrical breaker to the dryer.
Removed the three screws holding the control panel. Removed the old knob. Tilted the control panel forward to expose the wiring and controls. Removed the screw holding the old timer and loosened the timer - leaving the wires hooked up. Then I removed one wire at a time and reconnected to the corresponding terminal on the new timer until all of the wires were connected to the new timer. Replaced the timer and re-assembled the control panel on the dryer - turned the electric breaker back on.

Timer would not turn - broke knobs

The hardest part of this repair was determining which parts to buy. The PartSelect website did not list this particular model dryer. But the GE site did. I confirmed that the G2WW and the G3WW models used the same parts on the GE site and then purchased them at the PartSelect site. I saved almost 20% and the parts arrived the next day. The actual repair job was easier than I thought. Replace wire for wire, take the old timer off and snap the new one in place. Works perfectly.

Timer bound up, causing the knob to break.

Disassembled back splash to inspect timer. Ordered parts (at a 50% discount from brick and mortar stores). Parts delivered in two days. Installed new timer and had everything back together in 10 minutes. No-brainer!

Dryer timer did not select proper time setting

Pulled Timer knob off. Realized at that time it was just the knob slipping on the shaft of the dryer timer. Removed six screws on back panel of control knobs. Removed and replaced one wire at a time from old to new dryer timer. Put new dryer time in place and reinstalled back panel. I replaced knob with one of the four that I never use. I replaced timer just because I had it.

Broken dryer timer

I called a repair guy from a well thought of city appliance store. Guy gives me a price of $250 to repair. I let him know I only paid about $350 for the dryer. Guy tells me he can sell me a new dryer. Did my search and found the part with Part Select for around $50. Delivery was quick and installation easy. At around $200 for a 10 min installation, I may start my own service company.

The knob is worn out

Just remove 3 screws at the back and tilt the panel forward and you got access to the timer control and match the corresponding letters to the wires and that's it done.

Internal part in timer broke causing control knob to spin freely, total loss of control.

Unplug power cord. Biggest issue was getting dryer far enough away from wall to get behind it. Once I got behind it, it took about 15 minutes to change out the timer. 6 Phillips head screws and move back-splash top forward, then to the right from behind and lay it down on top of dryer. Remove timer by turning counter clockwise, do not remover wires yet. Install new timer by turning clockwise. Using needle nose pliers remove one wire at a time from old timer and reinstall on new timer at same terminal. Reverse process to reinstall back-splash. Plug in power cord.
