The dryer knob won't start the dryer

The knob for my Frigidaire Gallery Dryer will not work to start the dryer. We were able to take to plastic timer knob off and tried to start the dryer by using a pair of plyers but that did'nt work.

    The knob turns but only I hear it rachet in between each setting. There is a black ring that came off which is supposed to fit over the inside plastic part of the knob but I can't put it back on. Any suggestions. thanks

    I switched off the breaker and then on again and tried the dryer. When I try to start the dryer by pulling the knob, the knob just comes off. Also, the washer works which is right next to the dryer. I appreciate your suggestions.

    On this old dryer- probably at least 8 years old, you pull the knob to start it. The knob let's you select the cycle and then you pull it to start it. There is no start button.

    I feel like a complete fool. I was going by what my tenant was telling me and I think he was thinking the dryer worked like the washer. So now he found the start button and it works! Sorry for taking up your time but I appreciate you helping me!

    the ring goes inside the knob not out it reinforces the knob on the inside turn your breaker off then on see if it starts i beleive you may have a power promblem push the ring inside the knob matching the flat part then put it on timer shaft

My Frigidaire dryer does not work. It seems like it does not register that the timer is being turned back. It is the Gallery Series, Model GCET1031FS2.


Thank you for your inquiry, Ashley!

From what you have described your Frigidaire dryer is not working and it seems that the timer is not registering. This sounds like you may need to replace your timer or you could have a faulty wiring harness. In order to accurately diagnose your dryer I would recommend having a professional technician out. They will be able to properly disassemble your dryer and test each electrical component. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Best of luck! -Matt

The timer on my dryer isn't working properly


HI. the timer motor is damaged at this point. The Auto sector is dead. This is not a serviceable part, and you will need to replace the entire timer mechanism to correct this issue.
