GE DBSR 453 EB 2WW won't turn off

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.

SOURCE: starter knob on GE dryer came off. Dryer won't turn on.

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.

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

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II gas dryer won't turn off.


Dryer Won't Stop Running
  • Ultimate Car II Dryers are fitted with a mechanical timer that sends an impulse to the control circuit board to stop running once the set amount of drying time has elapsed. This is because, should an electronic timer fail, this would necessitate the replacement of the entire circuit board. Confirm that the mechanical timer is indeed broken by opening the dryer's door. If the dryer stops, the circuit board is working fine and is not the problem. Simply slide off the protective faceplate of the dryer, unscrew the control board beneath, and flip it over. Connected to the back of the timer's knob should be a small round device with two wires running to the circuit board within the body of the dryer. Unscrew this device from the back of the knob and disconnect the wires. A replacement timer costs a few dollars and should screw into place without trouble. Reconnect the wires and put the dryer back together. It should work fine now.

The dryer knob won't move while the dryer is on, so it will run for hours and never turn off. What needs to be replaced?

The knob on the right just turns (no clicking) so it does not seem to be selecting a time. now dryer wont start.


Check your timer knob. On these GE dryers I have found a lot of times the knob cracks where the stem of the timer goes in and the resistance of the timer will make ti slip internally rather than turning the knob. If the knob appears to be ok, then I would say you definitely have a bad timer on your hands.
Timer is part number WE4M271 and runs around $100 from marcone's
Knob is
WE1M654 and is around 18$

Good ;uck with this!!

Dryer turns on, gets hot, but knob does not move with timer.


could be your operating thermostat on your heater or your timer if it runs on timed dry but not auto dry then it is a thermostat issue if it just does not run at all then it is a timer issue also make sure your vent is clear check by removing vent hose from back of unit and running a load if it works properly clean your vent.
