    Same thing has been happening to me. One temporary help is to push/pull the knob in different directions (i.e. up, down left, right) when pulling it out. Sometimes it will help make contact.

When I pull the knob out to start it doesn't start


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.

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.

Dryer won't start when knob is pulled.


If you push the knob to the left and it makes a good contact and starts the machine, then replace the timer switch. Write down the Name and Model Number of the machine (usually on or below the door)
take it to a local appliance shop and order a new part. When you recieve the new part UNPLUG the machine and remove the three screws from of the top of the electrical compartment and gently pull o the front open, there is only one plug attached to the switch, remove it and dislodge the old switch, then snap the new switch in place and replace the plug, close the compartment and replace the three screws, plug in the dryer, and try it.
