Manual dial was pulled off and cannot be adjusted to work with timed drying

My Whirpool dryer - the manual dial that sets the timer was pulled out and now will not work, we can hold the piece that it attaches to and make it work but of course that is not really a practical option, any suggestions

Recently, I have seen this. I don't like to rig things BUT if the know will not attach itself you will have to either glue it or keep pliers next to your dryer. Sorry, but good luck. The other option is to replace the timer with a new knob.

Service manual for GE DPSR473EW0WW dryer


the timer may be stuck at a certain place as they have points that at times tend to burn out and stick when the timer gets to that point. do the other settings work? some times the moister sensor will not sense dry clothes and keep running? as for ur drum noise that may be due to bad rollers or bad tensioner and belt depending on ur model and hopefully not bad bearings also a possibility

My duet whirpool electric dryer keeps stoping before my clothes are dry


Make sure you are not using a timed drying setting. Use one of the pre programmed functions on the dial. These settings are meant to use a sensor and stop when the clothes are dry. If the problem continues on one of these settings, there is likely a problem with the sensor or your heating element

My dryer is taking to long to dry clothes and the setting dial moves very slowly if at all.


Make sure the exhaust vent is free and clear. Lint build-up can cause it to take longer to dry clothes. Also, try putting the timer on another setting to see if it makes a difference. If you are using "Auto", try putting the setting on a manual time setting to see if that helps. You may have a bad timer or bad moisture sensors.

Hi. Our dryer will start normally and then the


HI. This will occur when the there are issues that concern the integrity of the timer motor. This mechanism is responsible for the rotation of the timer module.It is damaged at this time, and it must be replaced asap.

A damaged timer motor will affect the nature of the drying cycle. It is the main initiator of all functions during the selected cycle.

Dryer Timer dial will not move but dryer works


Will the dryer move forward in timed dry? if it does not then you need a new timer. If if will advance in timed dry but does not advance in auto mode then the high limit needs to be replaced on the heater.

Extremely low drum heat but setting is on HIGH.


Electric (Kenmore - 60931) dryer takes forever (several cycles) lately to dry clothes set on high heat (actual heat in tub feels low though). There are no obstructions in the venting and the 240 volt connection is fine. The timer rotates the dial (timer motor working). Help!!!

Here's the problem: There is a dial on the dryer that should allow me to adjust for 'more dry' and 'less dry'. Up until recently, I could set the dial, and end up with clothes that were either 'more dry'...


sounds like you may have a clogged or kinked vent. its generating heat so the dryers good, your not exhausting properly, either clean or replace your venting, look to where it exits hte home sometimes theres ascreen over it cloggged with lint!!!!
