GE DRSR483EGWW dryer knobs keep breaking. When I place the knob on the timer, it breaks after a few months. I have used every knob and they all have cracked. Does anyone have a suggestion?

SOURCE: timer switch on GE washer

You don't state your exact model number, and the number off the timer is not the actual part number (it's some sort of part stamping number). Most likely what has happened is a plastic tab on the timer housing (which normally goes into a slot in the metal, and thus holds the timer at that point) has broken off. The fix is to replace the timer, but instead of buying a new timer, I usually fashion a Z type piece of metal which I can put one screw though into the metal and the other side holding the timer against the metal. Takes a little work, but it's a lot cheaper than a new timer.
If you want to take the timer knob off, you have to pull it out and use a thin tool, like a small screwdriver, to push the plastic clip off the shaft behind the knob, allowing the knob to then come off the shaft. Push the clip back on the knob when off, so that all you have to do to reinstall the knob is push it on and it will lock on the shaft again.

What can cause an electric GE dryer to not start? Model number DCVH680EJ1WW. cogtinuity with motor switch, door switch, high limit fuse, thermistor & no cogn. with the thermodisc or heating element.


As a repair technician, just came across this crazy situation with GE / Hot Point / Moffat machines several times. It is all made by GE corporation.



The Dryer is not starting because your cycle selector knob is broken inside and it is just turning without turning the timer selector.



GE corporation machines are good. But those damn chinese plastic knobs break from inside. I have driven 50 km to find out the knob is broken. I had to charge the poor customer.

My dryer knob has broken again. Wich direction should I be turning the knob when choosing a drying cycle? I was told I was turning wrong direction.


GE dryers turn in the clockwise direction and if you turn in the counterclockwise direction you could break the stops off the switch.

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.

The knob breaks when it has been turned in the wrong direction several times. It's a safety device so as not to damage the main timer.

It sounds like the timer motor isn't advancing. You will have to replace the timer.
