The dryer timer knob won't set, therefore when you push to start, nothing happens

Try to twist the outside ring around the timer knob. The knob could be faulty and freewheeling, so turning the outside ring (I'm assuming you have a mechanical timer, not an electronic one) does the same thing as turning the knob while it is "out". When you've set the timer, then push the knob in to start. Hope this helps - I made some assumptions about your machine that I hope are correct... Good luck.

When i push the push knob the dryer will not start...the electric is there i need to know how to repair the push knob

If you are talking about the starting switch "knob", you will not normally repair that, you will replace it.
If you are talking about the timer switch you normally do not repair the timer switch either...replace it.
If you do decide to replace either switch, remove and replace one wire at a time, this will save you problems with the wiring.

The knob does not pull out on dryers. Turn the timer to the desired setting and push the start button. Eric

GE Dryer bought 08/08/07 First it stop bewfore cloths were finished, if I hit start button it would finish, now it will not start.

The dryer knob on timer was cracked, when removed, therefore it was not actually engaging the
timer proper. Replsaced knob now it is fine.

Dryer just stopped working. Turned knob to desired time and pushed start, nothing happens. When knob is on OFF position and I push the start button, it makes the regular BUZZ sound - times up, clothes...

Remove and inspect the timer knob for a crack or missing tension clamp.
Carefully place it back on the timer shaft while paying attention to the (D) shape in the knob and the shaft.
If they are aligned correctly notice where the position arrow is pointing, ie; off---run--etc.
You may well need a new knob.

Removing Timer knob on Kenmore Electric dryer

Normally, to remove the timer knob, simply push in on the timer knob and turn the knob counter clockwise. it should unscrew itself. If it does not, the shaft inside the timer has broken and the shaft simply free wheels so then you need to take a needle nose pliers to hold the shaft and then you can turn the knob or pull it off

Let me know if you have any further questions
