SOURCE: pulled knob off 70 series Kenmore dryer.

There is a small clip that holds the knob in place. It sounds like the clip may be missing, or the shaft on the switch is broken off, causing the knob not to stay in place. The part number for the clip is 688805. The push-to-start button part number is 3395385 (if required). You can view close up drawings of these parts at Just use the "Search by Part Number" feature.

There is an excellent exploded view diagram of the dryer console at Just type in the model number you provided as "110.66722694". Look under the "Top and Console" heading for items 4 (retaining clip) and 5 (push-to-start switch). NOTE: item 4 is misidentified under the description, but the part number is accurate.

The reason I'm referencing two separate sites is because the first site I mentioned offers better prices, but does not show any illustrations of your dryer model. They DO carry the part numbers, however, because these parts are the same on several different models. The second website shows all the illustrations. I apologize if this is confusing.

If you have questions, please post back and let me know. If you require additional assistance with replacing parts, also let me know. I hope you find this helpful.

When we go to turn the dryer on it makes a buzzer sound, how so we make the dyer work?

Is it the same buzz that goes off when the load is finished? The knob may be broken, if so what you need to do is pull it off and see if the handle knob is really turning the smaller knob, if it isn't, replace the knob.
If the knob is fine then you have a problem with your controls and you need someone with electrical experience to look at it.

How to remove timer knob from Kenmore washer, model #29422800

I can't remember if the timer has to be pushed in or pulled out to remove it, but the timer knob comes off by turning it in a counter-clockwise direction. Once the knob is off, the clear plastic dial underneath should pull off. There is a single screw under the dial that holds the timer in place. You can access the timer by popping the operator console up. There is a release tab in the front corner of the console on each side. Simply slide a putty knife under the console at each front corner and push straight in from the front. The console will lift up after each tab is released.

If you have questions, or need further advice, please let me know.

PS Is there a particular reason why you are trying to remove the knob? Do you suspect a defective timer? Some problems may give symptoms that make it appear to be timer related, but it may not. I just don't want you to spend money on a timer unnecessarily, if the problem is attributed to something else that is less expensive.

Kenmore dryer dial knob stripped?

You have a 1995 Dryer built by Whirlpool, which is the best manufacturer of Dryers. 30 to 40 yr lifespans with rebuilds every 8 to 20 years depending on usage. You are correct, you have a bad timer assembly with bad points, and you need to replace the timer. Before you do this you need to check your belt to see if you need to rebuild the dryer also. I would be surprised if this does not need to be rebuilt at this age, you may have already replaced the belt, drum support rollers and idler pulley. To check your drive belt, you need to lift the lint filter cover and remove the two screws in front of the filter. Grab the top of the dryer and pull it towards you on one side as you lift the front of the top. There are two clips on each side that are holding the front of the top down, you are pulling the top toward you and up to clear these clips. The whole lid will then tip back and you need to lean this against the wall while you check the belt. Always do this with the power off at the circuit breaker. Grab the belt and flip it upside down in about a 10 inch section and inspect it to see if there are any cracks in the belt. If there are, you need to rebuild the Dryer. They have kits for this with directions but I recommend that you ask for the red drum support rollers instead of the white ones they have in the kit. Good Luck Appliance Specialists

Kenmore series 80 model 110

If you are talking about the Cycle Selection knob, turn the washer to an OFF position, or unplug. I can't remember if you need to pull the knob out or leave pushed in, but the knob will come off by turning it counter-clockwise. After unscrewing it and removing, the plastic dial under the center knob will simply pull off. I hope this helps you. If you need further assistance, please let me know.

Removing Timer knob on Kenmore Electric dryer

Normally, to remove the timer knob, simply push in on the timer knob and turn the knob counter clockwise. it should unscrew itself. If it does not, the shaft inside the timer has broken and the shaft simply free wheels so then you need to take a needle nose pliers to hold the shaft and then you can turn the knob or pull it off

Let me know if you have any further questions
