Large knob broke

Me again. The large knob that sets the drying mode and the drying time seems to have broken. Do I have to take the top of the dryer off to fix this? Is this something I can fix being half handy and having the tools?

    no, it seems the motor mechanism inside the dryer broke. The shaft now is wobbly and doesn't turn correctly.

    How do I remove the lid? It seems to be easier to remove the back than the lid. I noticed two notches in the front but not sure if they are useful/ Thanks.

    Got it. Had a hard time pushing and pulling the front of the top up. Also, I only had two screws on the back hinges so I kept looking for two more. Any idea where I get the new timer unit?

Dryer will not stop when clothes are dry in auto-sense mode


Try "timed" cycles. If it shuts off on timed it's not the timer. It's more likely it's not cycling on the thermostat due to an airflow problem like the vent. To rule that out (or in) run ONE load through it with the vent disconnected. If it shuts off you'll know where to look

My dryer knob has broken again. Wich direction should I be turning the knob when choosing a drying cycle? I was told I was turning wrong direction.


GE dryers turn in the clockwise direction and if you turn in the counterclockwise direction you could break the stops off the switch.

Dryer taking to long to dry


Overloading
1. One of the simplest problems to remedy could simply be that you are putting too many items inside the machine during the drying cycle. Avoid overloading your dryer, as this might cause your dryer to work extra hard to dry your clothing, extending the length of the dry cycle.
Wrong Heat Setting
2. A common issue with clothes dryers could be the wrong heat setting. Most home dryers feature several settings, from low heat settings to high heat and permanent press. Be sure the setting you choose is right for your needs. Another setting to check is the load size of your dryer. If you are drying a large amount of clothes, be sure the setting for large loads on high heat is selected. Choosing the wrong heat setting or load size can cause your clothes and linens to take longer to dry.
Lint Trap
3. One of the simplest fixes for drying issues might just be that your lint trap is clogged. Each time you use your dryer, lint will form in the trap. If the lint trap and vents are full, this could block air going into your dryer and slow down if not completely stop the drying process. After you use your dryer, remove this lint trap and empty it fully. Even if the lint trap is full, your other dryer vents might be clogged as well.
Clogged Vents
4. If your clothes are in the dryer for a long amount of time, but still not drying, the reason for this could be a clogged vent. A sign that your vent is clogged is if your clothes are warm or hot to the touch after sitting in the dryer, but still damp. To unclog your dryer vent, you may need professional assistance. This is especially necessary if your dryer vent leading out of the house is particularly long.
Heat Source
5. If the dryer is not getting enough heat to dry your clothes,something could be wrong with the heating system. After the drying cycle, touch your clothes to see if they are warm. If not, this means that the heating mechanism is malfunctioning. It will need to be repaired or replaced by a professional.

700 dryer wont shut off automatically


If it will not turn off on the Timed Dry cycle the failure is in the timer. The timer is the component behind the large knob on the console. If you supply me with the full model number from the front panel inside the door, I can get you a part number and approximate price of the part.

My Whirlpool Duet gas dryer doesn't seem to be drying my clothes. The clothes are staying damp.


If the load is extremely large or heavy it may require more time. If you are using the auto cycle and the clothes are not drying try setting the sensor to a "more dry" setting. Make sure the lint filter is clean and that the exhaust vent duct is not clogged. Check all the way to the outlet. If all is clear then the thermostat may need to be replaced if it is not calling for heat as often as it should. Also check to make sure there is air flow from the vent. If not then the fan/blower may be broken or disconnected from the motor shaft.
