Question about Dryers
I have a GE DBSR 453 EB 2WW dryer. When the time expires the unit continues to run. I see that the control knob doesn't make that final click to turn off the unit. Does the switch need to be changed or can I lube it or what do you suggest? I am pretty handy and can repair but could use some guidance.
the key is to dismantle the font ofthe knob assy( the small plastic center of knob pulls out) it also acts as a locking ring /clip to hold unto the new timer shaft

If it turns hard, the timer may need replaced. But if you can turn the shaft with a pair of pliers and the dryer works, just get a new knob.

The timer needs replacement.
Visit Repairclinic.com and type in your full model number, and all the parts available will list.
If you own a phillips screwdriver, you can replace it in under an hour.

HI. This will be a combo issue here. There are two components that work together to provide guidance to the timer during a drying cycle. If both components breakdown, this will induce the symptoms that your are experiencing at this time. The two suspect components will be the Moisture sensor bar assembly and the Chime and dryness board. The moisture bar monitors the humidity in the drum during the cycle. When that humidity level drops, this signal will be sent to the chime/dryness board and then to the timer for advancement guidance. If ant communication between these components are disrupted an any way; The cycle will become unstable and the unit may not stop or it may over dry the clothes.
The necessary actions are to replace the chime/dryness board and the moisture bar assembly. The dryness board will be mounted just behind the rear panel on the top control console. Just remove the rear top panel crews to gain full access. The top console will roll forward once the screws(3) are removed Unscrew the small board from the bracket, and unplug the connectors to replace with the new board. The bar assembly will be mounted on the front lower section of the tumbler assembly. It has two external screws. Once the screws are removed, you can unplug the connector and replace with the new bar.
The part numbers are as follows:
1.Moisture bar: 33001809
2.Chime/dryness board: 33002905
