Dryer Timer Knob not advancing properly.
I thought the dryer timer had gone bad, but was probably just the knob. Exact parts on this site. Pulled dryer out at angle to access back. Removed the three top screws and the front panel easily pulled off. Removed knob to release the part and realized that the knob was probably the problem! Broken plastic.... I still replaced the dryer timer since the dryer is 2014. Took photo to ensure all wires replaced in same spots. Both parts had a letter with the wire color as well. I watched a youtube video and knew I had to rotate the timer counterclockwise to remove it from the panel - two slots hold it onto the panel. I pulled the wires one at a time, some needed pliers to remove. Installed wires on new part, installed timer on panel clockwise, re-attached front panel. When I re-installed the knob, it failed. I ordered the knob from here and used the signal knob temporarily until it arrived. Works great with new knob.

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.

Timer was frozen.
First I unplugged the dryer. Then I removed the back panel and removed the front knob from the timer. Following the instructions provided with the part, I removed the wires one at a time from the old timer and connected them to the new one. After reassembling the dryer ...........it worked perfectly !!!

Timer appeared to be broken. Turned all the way around without contacting anything.
Ordered new timer with overnight delivery and thought all was well. Replaced timer and still didn't work. Am embarrassed to admit all was wrong was that the timer knob was broken and spun around. But am typing this so someone else might check the knob first of all before going to all the trouble of replacing the timer. Although it was an easier job than I thought. About 15 minutes after I got the dryer pulled out. Oh well, have a new timer and knob now and got to clean out behind the washer and dryer which was needed and the dryer vent also. All is well now!

The dryer only provided heat on the timed settings - on other settings, the drum rotated but there was no heat
The repair is straightforward. Three phillips head screws along the top on the backside hold the control panel in place. Once the panel is loosened, the timer can be lifted from its mounting. Holding the new timer in one hand, carefully remove wires one at a time from the old timer and placing them on matching points on the new timer. Once all the wires have been moved from the old timer to the new timer, place the new timer in its mounting and reinstall the control knob. Finally reattach the panel with the three phillip head screws. Job complete.

Plastic Shaft Broke
My husband un-screwed a few screws to take the cover off then just rewired the new timer and put the cover back on. I actually had an easier experience with this website than the actual GE website, which I used prior to partselect, and ordered the wrong part. Thanks and I will definately refer and use this site again. AWESOME!!

replace timer and knob
removed back panel, exchanged wires on old timer to new. Do this one at a time as there is no color chart to follow. Timer clips back in. Used a little screw to lock it in. Not sure if this was on the original but there was a place for it. Re-attached back panel and placed knob on shaft.
Overall saved a bundle as a service visit is $175.

I have a GE dryer and have replaced the knob for the timer due to a crack in the "d"shaped fitting and now it is cracked again and will not turn. The "d" shaped shaft is now more rounded and needs replacing, especially after having to use pliers to turn when knob broken. Please advise on part number for replacing d shaped shaft on timer and another replacement knob. Thanks!
For model number GLDP280ED0WS

Hi Erica, Thank you for the great question. The timer shaft is not sold on its own as it should not disconnect from the timer its self. The part number for the timer is PS9493080. Hope this helps!

The knob that sets drying time and cycle not working in the timed drying cycle
For model number dwsr483eg8ww

Hi Craig, Thank you for your inquiry. If the timer is not advancing you will need to check the timer knob, the timer, the rotary start switch, the timer resistor, and the cycling thermostat. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

The dryer will not start in certain spots on the timed dryer settings and does work in other spots. It will not start in the 40 min and higher
For model number DWSR483EG8WW
PartSelect logo
Hi Craig, Thank you for your inquiry. There are a couple of parts that you should test to see if they are working correctly. Check your rotary start switch, your door switch, and your interlock switch. If all of those parts are just fine, you may have to test your timer as well to see if that part is malfunctioning. Good luck.

I turn the timer knob and it just spins around. There is no clicking like it usually makes. I managed to get the dryer running but the timer did not advance. It stayed in the same spot. I believe my timer is shot. The knob is not broken and still fits onto the timer but the timer just goes around and it does not connect and when i hit start nothing happens.
For model number GTDP280ED2WW

Hello Craig, Thank you for your inquiry. You can remove the timer and try turning the shaft manually to see if it is spinning freely, you can also test it with a multimeter. Hope this helps!

Our GE Dryer shuts off prematurely during a cycle We have called repair in and they have changed everything and to no avail no one can find the problem. However, the only thing they did not replace was the timer mechanism. Could this ve a part of the problem. When this problem happens, it seems the the timer dial continues to run but the dryer does not run. After we let it sit for a few minutes it then restarts and will run for a while before shutting down again. Can you help. The unit is about 4-5 years old.
For model number GTDP280ED2WW

Hi Robert, Thank you for your question. If your dryer shuts off too soon, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the cycling thermostat, the high limit thermostat and the interlock switch. We have included a link that you may reference on how to check these parts. Once you have determined the part you need, please feel free to call customer service. We are open 7 days a week and anyone will be happy to assist you. We look forward to hearing from you!
