D-Shaped Knob Insert Clip Specifications

This clip ensures that the knob is securely fastened to the control shaft, allowing you to properly select the correct time and setting for your dryer. If your dryer will not start or shut off, the timer will not advance, or the dryer shuts off too soon, the issue may be the control knob itself. This clip is sold individually. Although this part fits with some different brands, be sure to check the list of brands below to make sure it fits with your dryer unit. Refer to the manual provided by the manufacturer for further installation instructions.

The control knob on my dryer will move around the different controls but will not stay in place when I choose one. Does this usually mean I need a new knob or the piece inside the knob or both?
Hi Bobbi, if the knob WE01X20374 is damaged then it needs to be replaced. If it is just the insert WE1X980 that is missing/damaged that can be replaced by itself. Best of luck with this repair.

I broke the insert underneath my selector knob and although the knob is fine I need a new insert. How can I take the knob off without breaking it to make this installation?
Hi Shawna, the knob can be removed by using a bent paper clip to reach behind the knob and pull the U-clip out. Then the knob can pop off. Once the knob is off, the insert can be removed the same way, or by using a small screwdriver. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

What is the point of the insert inside the knob? Ive had my dryer over ten years and these are the original knobs and just recently theres been visable damage to the knob so I checked underneith and the insert is damaged and not all there. Will my knob work without this piece or do I need to replace it
Hi Sheldon, the insert is needed to keep the knob secure on the shaft of the switch. If the insert is damaged, the knob will need replacing. I hope this helps!

My control knob feels a little loose when moving to a setting. When i push the start button, it won't start.Could it be that i need a new insert clip, or something else. Thank you.
For model number GTDP301EL1WS
Hi Keri, Thank you for your inquiry. You may need a new insert clip, but I would also take the knob off to see if there are no cracks on the piece the goes on the shaft. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

The stem from the timer keeps 'rounding off' the inside of the selector knob, and as a result the knob will spin freely. I have to take a crescent wrench to turn the stem to the desired setting. The timer then will cycle through to the end. What is the reason the stem is so difficult to turn? Thanks in advance!
For model number GTDP200EF3WS
Hello Kent, Thank you for the question. It sounds like the timer is seizing and may need to be replaced. Thank you for your inquiry, good luck with this repair!

The timer knob broke completely off, so i cannot work the timer any more (or dryer). Do i need a whole new timer? Can i replace just the timer knob? Would a knob insert clip remedy my problem? Finally, is it fix-it a job that i can handle on my own? Thanks!
For model number GTDP490GD2WS
Hi Brian, Thank you for your inquiry. If the shaft the timer knob goes on is broken then you will need to order a new timer. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

The light comes on when the door is open, the dryer will not operate, like there is no power
For model number GTDP490ED0WS
Hi Jeff, Thank you for the question. I suggest replacing the Interlock Switch,This part is a simple on/off mechanism that prohibits the appliance from operating when the door is open. The interlock switch senses the door is shut and the dryer can begin. This part might need to be replaced if your dryer is not starting. Hope this helps!

How do i check cycling thermostat? Thanks in advance
For model number GTDX200EM1WW
Hi Scott, Thank you for your question. When testing your cycling thermostat, test the outer prongs. If the thermostat reads 0 ohms, it is fine. If the needle or display does not change or move, then your thermostat is bad and needs to be replaced. Good luck with your repair.

The shaft to the time knob broke what is that part number? Don't see a pic of it.
For model number HTDX100EM2WW
Hi Sean, Thank you for the great question, The shaft the timer knob slips onto is attached to the timer switch and is not sold separately, in order to order the shaft you will need to order the timer. Good luck with the repair!

Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
Timer knob cracked twice. Found out the timer switch was bad.
Removed the 3 knobs. They just pull off. Removed 6 screws on the back side of the control panel. The front (plastic panel then just separates from the back). Then look at how the switch is mounted on the plastic panel. There should be 2 small pieces of plastic that holds it in. Carefully twist the switch in the appropriate direction so it comes free. Before you remove any wires from the old switch remember what colors go where ! I used needle nose pliers to remove the connections from the switch. Make the new connections, mount the switch, put the screws back in the panel. BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING. UNPLUG THE ELECTRICAL CORD !!!

START knob and plastic underneath broken
It was so incredibly simple! The site made it foolproof to find the right parts - and the actual replacement job itself was easier than we ever could have imagined. Background: I love to do laundry - I mean A LOT! So - I use the washer and dryer every night to wash the familie's clothing and blankets and towels. After heavy use - the outer knob stripped out. We threw it away and were using pliers to turn the small plastic knob underneath. After a few months - that plastic wore down and we could not turn it on at all!

Dryer making grinding noises
We live in a Condominium, space is tight especially in the Utility room where the washer/dryer are located. Turned dryer breaker off at the electical panel.
Removed the top cover and front assembly w/door and front drum support, right where the unit was located. Had to gain rear access to loosen drum drive belt so undid the dryer vent hose to floor connection through a front acess hole. Moved the unit out to the breakfast nook as well as disconnecting the power cable from the wall socket. Removed the rear access panel covers and unhooked the drive belt. At the front removed the top screws off the lower cross member to allow spreading of the side covers to allow the removal of the drum. Removed drum and found the bearing bushing gone, reduced to powder.
Using the supplied instuction sheet, replaced the rear bearing assembly, replaced the drum after vacumming the whole interior and started the reassembly of the unit using the new belt and moved the unit back into place. Reconnected the power cable and dryer vent then lastly replaced the lint filter and selector knob. Closed the breaker and turned on the machine, no noise!!!
Incidently I am 78 years old. Thanks PartSelect.

it would over flow with water
First I removed the 4 screws that held the element in place. I pulled it out, and than I decided to check on the hose that was attached to the water level pressure switch, so I opened the front of the washer and sure enough, all I had to do was clean the hose attached to the water sensor, and as it turned out, I really did not need to change the water sensor, but at least I have a water level pressure switch, water sensor just in case I really do need to change it.

The timer switch on our dryer
The person on the phone was so helpful in locating the exact timer needed. We received the prt 3 days later and it was so easy to install. I would highly recommend this company. A local shop wanted to charge 3x more then what we paid.

Could not adjust timer/switch
I had immediately assumed the problem was the timer/switch, P/N WE4M365 and foolishly ordered that part. Should you ever encounter non-adjustment of the timer/switch, try another knob from the console. That was the only problem here as it turns out. Also, the knob DOES come with the "D" shaped insert clip.

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!

Just followed the installation video. The only issue with the video was that a phillips screwdriver was specified and I actually needed a torx screwdriver.
