Be sure to unplug the machine from the mains,

1.-Remove the top cover of the machine, very straight forward.
2.-Unclip the universal coupling from the main timer to the back of the knob.
3.- The whole knob assembly is held in place by a backing plate.
4.- There are 2 clips at the top of this backing plate raise them and the backing plate and knob can be pulled out.
5.- there is a plastic clips but be careful not to break it.

The knob breaks when it has been turned in the wrong direction several times. It's a safety device so as not to damage the main timer.

What does e24 error on my siemens tumble dryer mean ? After about 10 mins the machine make an alert warning noise and flashes the error sign and said turn off and start again .


Unfortunately, it means you have a computerized machine that can only be repaired by a technician with proper diagnosing equipment. Even if you can find out the meaning of the code... that may not tell you what to do about it. (It usually involves replacing circuit boards). Monetarily, with regard to cost of repairs, we were all far better off back in the days of ''switches'', ''knobs'' and ''mechanical timers''.

How to remove control panel hotpoint ts12p tumble dryer


I removed the control panel on a TS12P tumble dryer to get the door and front panel off when replacing a drive belt. After taking off the back panel and loosening the wrap-round casing, pull off the timer knob, remove the Pozidriv securing screw, and push the panel firmly to the left to unhook the metal prongs. Ease the panel up and forward at the lower edge to disengage the plastic prongs from the slots in the return angle of the front panel. Tip: keep the screws removed in separate trays or egg box recesses to help replacement when re-assembling.

My Whirlpool Gas Dryer Estate Model # TGDS680BW1 will not tumble when I turn it on but the motor still runs. How can I fix it?


The problem is likely the dryer belt . Here is a video on replacing a dryer belt. It may be a different model but the process will be the same. You can also enter in your model # for diagrams and illustrations. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Gas dryer not maintaining heat. 70 Series Kenmore/Whirlpool 76722


Fuse is ok . Problem is the soils on the burner valve . If the dryer heats when started , the electricity goes thru the coils to open the valve . Once the coils get warm , 1 will open (short) until it cools back down . The coils can be replaced just by removing the front panel . Only 2 screws hold the coils in place . No turning off gas , dissasembling dryer .

Dryer doesn't tumble


If you need to replace the belt here's how: remove the front panel. you may need to remove a kick panel below the front panel. the top panel connects to the front panel by some plastic push in retainers (you can loosen them with a screwdriver) You need to prop the top panel up. the belt goes over the top of the drum down to a drive wheel that is located at the bottom of the dryer.

How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer


I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Replacing the Drive Belt


I am not an expert but I do have a Hotpoint 9334 Tumble Dryer which I guess is similar to the 9314.
To replace belt or heater element you must remove the front panel complete with door.
Screws are different sizes in different places so note where they belong as you remove them.

1. Remove 2 screws at rear top which go through the brackets holding the top panel, slide back the top panel a little and lift it off.
2. Pull off the rotary timer knob and remove 2 screws beneath.
3. This is the tricky bit! Remove the the plastic panel which covers the switches etc.. This panel has 5 plastic fingers which secure it to the metal plate behind, locate the ends of the fingers where they pass through the metal plate. Using a metal rod or punch and a hammer, tap the ends of the fingers to push them back through the holes easing each in turn a little at a time to avoid distorting the plastic unduly. (This is a bit scary as you have to hit them quite hard and the fingers look fragile)
4. Open the door and remove the 4 screws then remove 3 screws at the top and 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel. Lift and ease forward the front panel, unhook the door catch release wire, pull off the electrical connectors and put the front panel aside.
5. Lay the machine on its back and remove 1 screw holding the element housing to the top plate and pull off the electrical connectors.
6. Fit the belt around the drum, through the idler pulleys and over the motor spindle.
7. Put it all back together.
