There is a door switch that not only turns on the light in the dryer, but also completes the circuit so the machine can start. Check the switch by pushing the button on the switch with your finger and listen for a positive clicking sound. If there isn't a click, the switch is most likely the cause and is fairly easy to replace by pulling the front cover off the dryer.

It is possible that you need a new timer which is a part number: 22003362 and is usually about $75-$100 but it is also possible that one of the components of the knob is not functioning properly. The best bet is to take the knob apart (make sure the arrow points to a wash cycle first) and then pull up on the time timer shaft itself. If the washer starts then you know its one of the components of the knob that when bad. If it doesn't then you know you need a timer.

The start knob doesn't engage when pulled. Do I just need to replace the knob assembly? Is it difficult?


Take the knob off and try using pliers to pull the stem. Don't pull any harder than you would with the knob. If it works, you just need a knob. If it still won't engage, you need a timer.

Wash cycle dial wont turn...will still push in and pull to start


We have a GE WJRR4170 washer, with the same problem. At first I thought I might have to unscrew the entire control panel just to replace the knob. However, replacing the knob turns out to be easy.

Right behind the knob, holding it in place, is a nylon/plastic retainer clip. If you pull out the knob (into the "start" position), you will get easier access to the retainer clip. You can use a flathead screwdriver to push the clip out. The knob then will slide easily off the metal stem. A GE replacement knob costs $9 or $10, depending on the source.

Shame on GE, but the knob is designed terribly. The part of it that engages the dial has eight, flimsy plastic teeth. At any time, four of these are supposed to engage four little slots in the dial. However, the way the knob is designed, there will be a lot of wear and tear on these plastic teeth, so they'll wear out on every single machine.

Good luck to the many people who will have this problem!
