Dryer timer knob keeps breaking

I have had a Frigidaire stack washer and dryer for 6 years and just ordered my 4th dryer timer knob. It has always been hard to turn and then after about a year, the plastic neck of the knob breaks and I have to get another knob. This scenario keeps repeating. I don't think it is the knob, I think it is the mechanism inside which is very tight and won't turn easily but I don't know how to fix that. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Removal of the timer knob.

you have two different knobs to replace? it the water level knob or the timer knob?
if its the timer knob you need to remove, look underneath the timer and you will find a black plastic pin depressed at the middle. pull it slowly for about 1/4 of an inch.

then you can remove the knob in the front of the timer switch.

in putting it back, install the knob first in the timer and then depressed that black plastic pin to lock the knob.

be carefull not to pull the plastic pin all the way out. it would be very hard to put it back in.

SOURCE: needing to take off old timer knob and replace with new one

We found this on another web site:
This was super easy. If you can screw and unscrew a nut from a bolt, its that easy.
The Knob assembaly comes as a whole. So once you remove the old knob (unscrew to the Left).

Then replace the new knob assy (screw to the Right) till its a snug fit. As you will see this knob is designed to be a clockwise rotation only - normal operation - sort of a self tightening screw.

How to diagnose washer timer not turning?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the washer timer on your Frigidaire laundry center, model# GLEH1642DS, stopped turning and you want to know how you can diagnose this. Typically, this is not be a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step repair instructions. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your appliance and should be able to diagnose it and determine what is causing the timer button to not turn. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Dryer timing button off

Hi - Are you referring to the dryer timer button (located on the far left side on most laundry centers) is broken? If so, you might need to replace the entire button. You can contact the manufacturer directly to get part or go through a part distributor but part numbers can be different.

I am replacing the washer timer and do not unserstand how to remove the front dial knobs FEA831FS

Hello HmKm, You should be able to just pull the knobs straight off the control stems. Once you have them off, there are a couple of screws on the angled section just above the washer lid. Remove them and you will be able to access the washer controls.

Before you go working on the parts, to remove the control timer, please unplug the stacked washer/dryer combo and turn the water offl. Now you can remove the two screws (that are behind the timer knob) to free it from the metal control panel. Depending on your model, there might be another mounting strap inside the unit that holds the timer in place. If so, remove those screws and you shoud be able to drop the timer down and remove the wiring connection plugs and take out the faulty timer. Now simply push the wiring plugs onto the new timer and reinstall.

Close everything up, reversing the procedures above and turn the power back on and the water and you should be able to use the washer/dryer as normal.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

PS: I was one of the folks that was trying to conect with your request for a live chat, but the system wasn't responding, so I aplogize for that technical glitch. Anyway, this is what I would have provided you during the chat session, so best of luck to you in undertaking the repairs.
