Question:

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?

Bobbi
Answer:

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.

Question:

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?

Shawna
Answer:

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.

Question:

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

Sheldon
Answer:

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!

Question:

The light comes on when the door is open, the dryer will not operate, like there is no power

Jeff for model number GTDP490ED0WS
Answer:

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!

Question:

How do i check cycling thermostat? Thanks in advance

Scott for model number GTDX200EM1WW
Answer:

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.

Question:

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!

Brian for model number GTDP490GD2WS
Answer:

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 entire knob broke off. The previous GE i had the same thing happened and i would use a tool to turn to correct setting and then start it. This time the entire thing is gone but i can see the d ring in there. Can it be replaced?

Hello Sally, thank you for contacting us. The correct part number for the knob would be PS9493075. Good luck with the repair!

Sean for model number HTDX100EM2WW
Answer:

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!

Question:

The knob seems to be fine but took it off and tried plyers but doesn't seem to want to turn and i'm getting nothing out of dryer

keith for model number htfx100em8ww
Answer:

Hi Keith, Thank you for your inquiry. If you are unable to turn the knob even with the d-shaped clip inserted inside it, there may be an issue with switch in back of the control panel it is attached to. You may have to use a multimeter to check the continuity on it to see if it is working correctly. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

The timer knob was cracked and the metal "d"-ring was broken on my ge cloths dryer

This repair was a no brainer repair. The factory replacement knob that I bought from this site comes with a new "D"-Ring. Some other aftermarket parts houses sell the knob and the "D"-Ring as seperate parts. The knob from this site already has the "D"-Ring ring installed in the knob. My "D"-ring was broken and I simply removed it with my fingers. All I had to do was properly align the new know knob with the timer shaft and press it into place. If your "D"-ring is not broken and not still inside the old knob, you will need to pull it off the shaft with a pair of pliers before pressing the new knob onto the timer shaft.
