Hello, I have a Maytag Performa Dryer and the dial on the timer has came loose from the knob. The dryer still works but you can't tell which drying section that you have selected and it doesn't keep the time. I have tried to twist and get the plastic dial and the knob back together, with no luck. Any suggestions?

these are put together at the factory and once they come appart you need to replace it, its only $12.00 @ http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-PYET444AYW-%3d%3di1170648&PartID=1170648 , even if you could get it back together it has to be in the right possition to keep the cycles straight, hope this helps. thanks Bryan,
