    THANK YOU!!   THANK YOU!!!  That totally worked and took me 30 seconds.  Unlike the 1/2 hour to search the internet trying to find a solution w/o breaking my dryer. Why they don't they put that on the parts package???

Door knob stem stuck


You may have to apply Liquid Wrench or equivalent to free up the spindle. Tap the end of the spindle gently with a hammer to break the rust or corrosion loose. You will then have to prevent the mechanism from turning as you work the old spindle free. Be careful to avoid damaging the lock mechanism in such a way that installation of the new spindle will be difficult

How can I remove the timer knob from a Frigidaire Washer


Knob PN 131592001 Just looking at replacements it appears to just push on. If pulling on it does not get it off then rotate it CCW in an attempt to unscrew it. Just be VERY careful that the timer stem does not rotate if you turn the knob CCW or you will be buying a new timer. Open the top and hold the stem if you have too. (easier said than done) Worst case... if you have a bad knob and have a replacement knob in hand... break the defective knob. If your changing the timer look at the stem on the new timer. If it is threaded on the end the knob unscrews. If it is not threaded it pulls off.

The knob on the right just turns (no clicking) so it does not seem to be selecting a time. now dryer wont start.


Check your timer knob. On these GE dryers I have found a lot of times the knob cracks where the stem of the timer goes in and the resistance of the timer will make ti slip internally rather than turning the knob. If the knob appears to be ok, then I would say you definitely have a bad timer on your hands.
Timer is part number WE4M271 and runs around $100 from marcone's
Knob is
WE1M654 and is around 18$

Good ;uck with this!!

Can't Remove Broken Electric Stove Burner Knob


Spray each of the screws with a little WD40, available at any autoparts store. This will dissolve any rust that may have formed. Leave it over night. Then loosen the screws and the knob will come off.

I bought a frigidaire dryer knob to replace the broken one. But how do I get the knob on without hammering it and cracking the knob and stem? the stem on my frigidaire dryer is broken - i have the knob...


You will want to take out the screws on the back of the dryer behind the control panel. Once off you will see all the wires and such connecting to the timer and the knobs. Make sure you disconnect the power first before digging in in there. When you find the spot that your knob goes take that control part off and place your knob in. Once you have the back off you will see how it goes on. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me and please let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and glad I could help.

MY on/of knob is broken from the part that is insede the head of the dryer, can I replace this easily?


most dryer knobs just pull straight off. be sure to get all the pieces off the shaft(small black spring clip on some??). new knobs are easily obtained from any parts house and push on.
