The control knob that you set to the gold dot doesn't turn all of the time and the dryer won't turn off.

I had changed the heating element and the thermostat on that element. The control knob sometimes works and shuts off the dryer. Now its not shutting off and the control knob isn't moving.

Ok you have to replace the timer. You can remove the two inner phillips screws on the top edge of the console. The console will flip forward and you can get at the timer. You just have to slip the knob off the timer and unscrew the screws there and swap the wires over to replace it. Make sure it is unplugged of course and here is a link to the part...CLICK HERE
