Dryer knob for Whirlpool
« on: April 11, 2010, 08:33:17 AM »
I can't seem to locate the dryer knob for this model.  Can someone help.  The knob that turns the dryer on broke about a year ago and I have been using a wrench to turn the knob but the metel piece has now fallen off.

Help please.

Model LNC7766A00

 The timer may be $100.  Super glue nope!

Thanks....for that price and frustration to replace I can get a good quality used dryer from a local dealer.

Plus I have the matching washer that is also broken that I can trade in together to a dealer I buy all my used appliances from.

At least then I will have a good one year warranty on a used item.

I should have replaced the knob a year ago when it broke.
