Step 2. Removed the start switch by gently twisting left and pulling out of the socket.
Step 3. Removed the three wires, one at a time and placed them on the new start switch, then installed the new switch in its socket by gently twisting to the right.
(Note: plugged power cord back in and tried the new Start Switch. Still would not start.)
Step 4. Removed the Timer Knob by pulling strait off the shaft, then replaced with the new knob. Pushed the Start button and the Dryer worked. The old knob was obviously stripped so as to slip on the Timer shaft, giving the impression it was moving but it was not.
