I accidentally turned the timer on our GE dryer (model DBXR463GG7WW) in reverse while the unit is off, and the timer now requires a lot of force to click into the OFF positions. It still seems to be able to turn off on its own while running, but is the timer likely to fail altogether in the future? Can I fix this without replacing the timer? (I do know that the correct part is WE4M357 if the timer does need to be replaced.)
