Hello all, my question is for GE dryer Model - GTD45EASJWS.

A day ago as I was turning the knob it suddenly stopped winding up or stopped making clicking sound. It still turns fine but the dryer won't start when pressing start button.

Only once did it worked again but only a specific spot turning the knob then it completely stopped working altogether. Heat is fine, and it tumbles when it did work.

I don't think its the knob problem cause when I remove the knob from turning, I can see the rod turned with it.

Can anyone help to identify this problem? Thanks
