Timer switches are normally not repairable.
You will have to replace the timer switch.
When you do, make sure you get the right timer switch, and remove and connect one wire at at time. This will save you problems later if you get the wiring confused.
You can go to this website for parts or your local part supplier or search other suppliers on the web:

Good luck,
I hope this helps

oh boy these are varied in the way to remove them, but usually under the knob is a pin, or screw and in some cases a u shaped plastic pc that locks timer to knob shaft? in some cases on the back side the shaft has to be pulled up then remove the locking pin or u shape piece to release it and wow it comes off

I have a GE top load washer model #WJRR4170GWW. When I attempted to change the load size from large to super, the knob broke and came off the control panel. Now there is just a hole on the control...


themobilian_130.jpgThe new part has a clip in it that holds it to the shaft of the timer. Installing it is so easy. Just slip the new knob on the shaft of the timer. IF the shaft is still on the timer. Did you mean the shaft came out of the timer? In that case you would need a new timer.

The timing knob on my dryer wouldn't turn, it would just spin without selecting a setting so I pulled the knob off and tried using pliers to turn the plastic shaft to select a setting. It worked a couple...


Both the timer and the knob is replaceable.
Locate the model number of the unit. Here's info on how to find it:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=+86673100&pathTaken=partSearch

You can get the timer and the knob from www.searspartsdirect.com or call 1-800-252-1698.
Once you have the part, remove the screws from the back of the control panel, removing the back cover. From there you should see the timer. It will either have one wiring harness or many wires attached to the timer. INSURE UNIT IS UNPLUGGED WITH NO POWER TO IT. If there is a harness, unplug the harness. The timer will be held in place either by a couple screws on the front of the control panel that is normally hidden by the knob AND/OR a screw INSIDE the control panel at the timer. There could also be a plastic tab holding the timer in place. Raise this tab and turn timer until it is free. Remove timer and put new timer in place. Fit harness onto timer.
If there are many wires attached to the old timer, I would hold the new timer in my hand and transfer the wires one-by-one to insure you get the right wires on the right terminal tab. Once wires are transferred, remove old timer and put new timer in place.
At this point. put new knob on the timer on the front of the control panel. Plug unit in, stay clear of exposed wiring, and test dryer. If it works, replace back cover and you are done.
If it doesn't work, further troubleshooting will be needed and Ill need the make and model number.
Hope this helps. Please take a minute to give a testimonial if I've help you.
Thanks, G

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.

Ge timer on washer is broken


If it no longer clicks, the timer assembly will need to be replaced. If just the knob broke off, the timer should be good.
