Question:

When the cycle finishes my dryer will not automatically turn off anymore. Is there a problem with my timer knob or something? Never had this happen before!

Marge
Answer:

Hello Marge, if the timer motor has power and the timer is still not turning off, you may need to replace the timer on your dryer WE4M353. This can be tested using a multi-meter tool. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Question:

How do I know if I should replace the knob or the whole timer assembly. My wife said last time she used the dryer when she turned the timer it felt “weird” and now the machine is not starting. I read that usually it is bc of a faulty timer or timer knob but who can I determine which it is?

Raymond
Answer:

Hi Raymond, this problem could be caused by the knob or the timer on your dryer. I would start with the knob. Pull it off the shaft and check it for visible damage. If the knob is not the problem then you will need to inspect your dryer timer. I hope this helps.

Timer knob and shaft had stripped

Replaced switch by taking out top 3 screws in back of control panel. Hold new switch in one hand and took out wire(female discount) one by one as they matched old switch. Put back in holding slot, screwed back together, DONE. If I had someone help it wouldn't have taken 10 minutes

Timer knobs broken, timer hard to turn

UNPLUG APPLIANCE PREVIOUS DAY.removed metal panel(six screws) behind knobs.compare new switch to old. transfer wires to new switch one at a time. gently turn switch counter clockwise while lifting just enough on plastic that prevents switch from turning. install new switch opposite manner.I added one very small wood screw in whole provided to stabilize switch. must be short and skinny1/8x #2 so as not to break or protrude plastic.Maybe GE left out of mine and others have screw?Knobs just pull off and push on except the timer on washer has a clip between knob and bezel (see video on website.)

This is the 2nd replacement timer knob

So simple....just put it on! Sure beats paying a $65 service charge (which we did the 1st time). Have a feeling that I'll be ordering another one.

Broken timer knob

The fact that the knob on a 3yr old dryer broke was harder to deal with than the repair. It was lift the old knob off (it was very loose) and snugly slide the new knob on. I can get back to reading my book and my wife thinks I'm a hero win-win!
