SOURCE: the white hard plastic pin the the timer knob

Timer switches are normally not repairable.
You will have to replace the timer switch.
When you do, make sure you get the right timer switch, and remove and connect one wire at at time. This will save you problems later if you get the wiring confused.
You can go to this website for parts or your local part supplier or search other suppliers on the web:

Good luck,
I hope this helps

SOURCE: starter knob on GE dryer came off. Dryer won't turn on.

If it turns hard, the timer may need replaced. But if you can turn the shaft with a pair of pliers and the dryer works, just get a new knob.

SOURCE: replace broken start knob on ge dryer model

I have one up at the hunting camp. I remove the switch and took a dremmel tool and cut a slot in it. I Use a flat blade screwdriver to start the motor. It is just 2 wires going to that momentary switch. It is an old dryer and I didn't want to spend the money on a new one. Anyway you remove the back of the control panel. (Unplug the dryer) Lift the locking tab up and twist the switch a hair. It drops right out.a817090.jpgSee the tab sticking out. Just lift it up a little bit and give the switch a twist.

Control Panel turns off


HI,
The PCB unit ie the control panel circuit board has gone bad. The probable cause of the same is moisture on the board.

Thanks

My husband just fix my GE Dryer GFDN240WW "Start Button broke" issue. Here is what he did; He removed the control knob to access the phillp screw. Unscrewed screw and lift up on control to remove panel and unhook power supply. Then set control panel on face. Unscrewed 5 larger screws to removed black plastic panel w/ mother board attached. Set board aside and located power button which was broke off. Compare button to all other buttons on panel to see how they are attached to panel. My husband used Plumbers Goop from Lowes store to attached power button like the others. Then he reassembled the dryer and presto! It works!

Remove front panel ge spacemaker dryer


Here's the trick: The Spacemaker dryer is the same as many other GE dryers but is upside down!

1. Unplug the dryer.
2. Flip the dryer upside down so the white panel is now on top and the unfinished steel panel is on the bottom.
3. Remove the 2 screws that connect the bottom, white panel from the back and lift up to remove.
4. Pull off the Settings and Fabric knobs on the front of the dryer. Take off the front control panel (remove the 2 screws).
5. Remove the 2 screws that attach the front panel (located behind the control panel you just removed). Hold the dryer drum by the top edge and pull the front panel away (note that the panel will be hooked to the rest of the dryer at the bottom corners). DO NOT PULL AWAY ENTIRELY!
6. Disconnect the wiring that is attached to the front panel (these come apart easily by hand but you might want to mark the wiring so you know where to connect it when reassembling).

Squeaking in GE ds4600 Dryer


Every unit is different. Some units you have to remove the electronics and the top of the unit first before removing the back panel. Try laying the unit on it's back and see if you can access the unit from the bottom.
