Need control knob timer dryer doesn't shut off

If you are stating that the timer knob never moves to the off position, then the timer is probably bad and needs replaced. If you can't turn the timer because the knob feels too loose then possibly the knob is just broken. Timer knobs usually just pull straight off so you can look at the back side and see if the plastic around the shaft hole is cracked.

You can buy the knob individually. Most likely what happened to yours, is there is a metal insert in the shaft of the knob. If that insert detatches and pulls out, it wont stay on the timer shaft anymore.

Hope this helps.

a piece of plastic from the original knob may still be on the shaft, thus preventing the new knob the ability to lock in place. Hope this helped Tim

It could be that the knob came off and someone pushed it back on in the wrong location. Knobs are keyed so they should only go on one way, but since most knobs are plastic and can get messed up fairly easily, you might want to pull the knob off and see if that is the issue.

You might need to get a new knob if yours has gotten a broken socket where it slips onto the control shaft.

Hope this helps. Best Regards!
