Hummmm, have not seen a pointer dial spin free, usually is a D shft and dial, unless it is not pushed down onto the timer all of the way. It shows to be seperate from the knob.

I just rechecked making sure that the knob was pushed in until it clicked. Both the knob and the dial will turn freely. I also pulled the knob out until it clicked. It and the dial spin freely. Looks like I may have to don my safety glasses and Dremel thru the knob!

I now have the knob and dial off with the help of my hammer and chisel. No damage to the knob and a new dial is on order. I've WD-40ed the two timer mounting screws to hopefully loosen them a bit. I may have to drill them out unless I can think of a way to get more leverage.

Yes, I'm determined but those darn screws are too! At the rate I'm going, it's going to take years to Dremel them out. I'm not experienced at drilling out screws. Are there any hints and tricks I should know? Thank you! BTW, I have to say that those repairclinic.com guys are quick! I ordered parts on Wed. late afternoon and they arrived Friday. Hooray!!!

I now have to admit to having at least two screws loose! Thanks to my Dremel and some 409 cutting wheels. Can a timer installation be far behind!

Fortunately the dryer is ok. Next (after the timer is working), I'll try to replace the motor coupler in the washer! Another challenge. After that, I'll be back over at my ice dispenser thread. Ice just isn't as important as clean clothes right now!
