GE Spacemaker Washer/Dryer wont start only washer or only dryer


Did you figure out a solution to this problem? I just bought a brand new Frigidaire and it is doing the exact same thing, except it never worked properly. I thought it was the unit and had HH Greg bring another out but the 2nd one did the same as the first.

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.

Hard to start dryer, control know loose/misaligned


your saying that pulling the timer knob out, which normally starts dryer, does nothing. however if you pull out and apply pressure upwards on knob and touch nothing else, the dryer will start??? if the thats the case sounds like a short in the timer mechanism , youll need to replace the timer assy
