Product Description

Control Knob and Clip - White Specifications

This set (Knob and Clip Assembly, Control Knob, Dryer Control Knob) allows you to replace the knob on your timer if it is damaged or missing. The plastic knob can break around its shaft, or the retainer clip inside the knob can fall out and no longer stay securely on the control shaft. If your knob no longer stays in place, it’s time to place it. The knob is attached to the d-shaped shaft of the control mechanism. This model has a 2 inch diameter, 1-1/14 inch depth, and comes in white plastic.

Dryer start knob was cracked inside so you couldn't turn to start the dryer
This was so easy. I used needle nose pliers to reach in and remove the metal clip which had slipped off of the inside of the knob and was on the post the knob was supposed to attach to. Next, I lined up the flat side of the "D" of the inside of the knob to the flat side of the "D" on the post and pushed it in until it snapped into place, and I was done. The dryer now works like new.

The dryer would not turn on.
We took the knob off of the machine and it appeared to be cracked on the inside. We ordered a new one and received it in 2 days. We matched the inside of the new knob to the stem coming out of the machine and placed the knob on the stem. The machine was fixed and we were happy! Thanks Part Select.

The original control knob was made of 100% plastic and broke 3 times
I was using vice grips to turn the control knob (stub) until the new knob arrived. The replacement knob was a redesigned type with a metal backing plate to place on the control knob stub (better than the original plastic knob) however the diameter of the new knob is only half the size of the original knob and the mark on the dial does not line up with the markings on the dryer control panel making it difficult to know what cycle you are using or how far to turn the dial within each cycle before passing to the next cycle.

Both the start switch and timer switch had become old and worn out.
After unplugging the unit, I simply replaced them, matching each replacement connector on the unit. It was actually nothing special and the replacement components being identical left out a lot of guesswork.

Broken control knob
Pulled off the broken control knob (which was really easy, since it was already broken.) Aligned the new knob to the knob shaft which is shaped like a "D", pushed it onto shaft until it was fully seated. Very easy install!!GT

Bad rotary switch and backsplash
Shut off the Electric at the breaker panel. With a Philips head screw driver took off the metal plate, and slide the backsplash out of its holders. Twisted the three switches, twisting to the left to remove them and replace the back splash, controller, timer switch and installed the new rotary switch with a right twist. There are three wires on the rotary switch, just follow the line of the old switch. Replaced the back metal panel, and turn on the breaker. Replacement takes about 30 minutes along with putting the dryer back in place.

knob was loose so pulled it off and the metal insert is broken. What is that called and how do I order the metal part
PartSelect logo
Hi Kathryn, based on your description it sounds like you need to replace the metal clip inside the knob. With that said you need to order a replacement control knob WE01X20378, and it will come with the metal clip. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

I need to order the knob and the clip, does this come with the clip... is it installed or do I need to install it myself
PartSelect logo
Hi Trevor, according to the manufacturer this is a knob and clip assembly, and the clip is already inside the knob. I hope this helps.

The d shaped stem broke on the dryer timer! What part would i have to order?
For model number GTDP180ED1WW

Hi Casey, Thank you for your inquiry. If you are looking for the d shaped stem that the knob slips on to, you would have to replace your timer. Good luck with your repair.

I need to replace the dryer knob as there is a crack in the white plastic d-shaped part that holds the d-shaped metal clip. The know just spins around now and won't actually turn the dryer on. The picture you show of the replacement knob doesn't appear to include the outer plastic ring (the part that has the arrow that shows what setting it's pointed to). I was able to snap that ring off the old knob. Do i just use the old outer ring or do i need to buy that as well? I see you have 2 different part numbers showing for my dryer. I don't understand what the difference is between them: We01x20378 (control knob and clip) and we01x20374 (timer knob). What's the difference between the two parts? Thanks!
For model number GTDP180ED0WW
PartSelect logo
Hello Denise, thank you for your question. The correct timer knob, that has the indicator line on it to show what setting its pointed to, is part number WE01X20374. This is the replacement timer knob and clip that would replace the broken knob on your appliance. I hope this helps!

This model has four control knobs on it. P/n 7 & 41, 19 & 41. Does the latter go on three of them?
For model number DHDSR46EG6WW
PartSelect logo
Hello Julius, thank you for inquiring. Number seven on the diagram is the Timer Knob part PS1482197 that you would require only one of. Number nineteen is the Control Knob and Clip part PS9493075 that you would require three of. Number forty one is the D-Shaped Knob Insert Clip part PS267091. They are included when you purchase the Control Knob and Clip part PS9493075, but must be purchased separate for the Timer Knob part PS1482197. We hope this helps.

My knob was slipping so I ordered a new one a while ago but now the motor is not spinning but the tub is filling with water
PartSelect logo
Hello Jill, we recommend checking that your lid switch is in good condition. A faulty lid switch is the most common cause of your symptoms. If the lid switch is working, you should next check that the motor is receiving power. If the motor is getting the power but not turning then you have a faulty motor. Best of luck with this repair.

On my dryer panel the start and fabric care knobs and the stem they are attached to are off. Is their a part for me to repair dryer with.
For model number DHDSR46EG2WW
PartSelect logo
Hi Bettie, Thank you for your question. If your knobs have broken, this would be the part that you would need to replace. If it is the metal that the knobs slip on to, you would have to replace the switches behind the knobs. Good luck with your repair.

Both the start knob and the temperature knob are broken! Would you tell me the part # for both ? I will replace the switch too while I have it apart. On the temperature knob they is nothing to connect the knob to, so I'm assuming the switch is broke on this.Thanks
For model number DBSR463EGWW
PartSelect logo
Hi Becky, Thank you for the question. The knobs show to be the same knob on this model number, Part Number: PS9493075. The temperature switch is Part Number: PS267990 and will need to be replaced if there is no shaft for the knob. Hope this helps!
