Question:

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

Kathryn
Answer:

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.

Question:

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

Jill
Answer:

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.

Hi Janice, Thank you for the question, if the appliance is not blowing the air properly I suggest checking the Blower Wheel, PartSelect Number PS11746331. You can also check the Blower housing, PartSelect Number PS11751272 to make sure both are intact and there is nothing preventing the wheel from spinning to distribute the hot air into the dryer. Good luck with the repair!

Dryer wouldn't start

Unplugged dryer. Removed knobs and display panel. Removed bad start switch. This was a bit tricky for a novice. Had to do a bit of twisting. Once the new part was installed, I screwed in the display panel. The dryer worked, but I discovered that the part wasn't securely in place. It took three tries before I finally figured out how to secure the part. Now, everytime I start my dryer, I sing "I am Woman, Hear me Roar!" Woo Hoo!!! Sounds like a little thing to all you Do-It-Yourselfers out there, but to me, this really empowered me. Hmmm, what's next? Maybe the edge of the garage door??? See Ya!

Starter switch was broke.

The repair would have been extremely easy, if only the part was correct. The original starter switch was discontinued-WE4M402, which had 4 prongs to connect to my dryer's 4 electrical wires. The manufacturer substituted a new part-WE4M519, which has only 3 prongs. PartSelect suggested I contact GE and ask what I should do to properly connect the starter switch. The GE help was totally useless, just repeating that the original part was discontinued and a new substitute part was issued; they could not provide any information as to how to install a switch that previously required 4 electrical wires but now only provides for 3 electrical wires. Of course GE would be happy to schedule a service call and have a repairman come out.

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.

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.)
