Default Hum/Buz from Timer... GE....

Well,
This is a strange one and I havn't found the answer but, I *think* I know what it is. I have a GE dryer, model DRSR483ED2WW. It runs just fine, fires right up, runs hot, drys the clothes, etc. Yesterday my wife tells me the timer itself is making a terrible buzz/hum. I went up today to take a look at it, sure enough I hear a hum/buz coming from the dryer.

First thing I did was make sure the drum was spinning and she was heating up, so I held in the door closed indicator, fired her right up, no issues but, definitly a loud buzz.

Then I went around behind it to try and find the location of the noise, def. sounded high like in the control panel. I popped the screws off the top of the control panel and it's indeed the timer buzzing away.

I went ahead and took the timer off the chasis, when I did so, the buzzing went away. I turned the knob (without the dryer on knob being turned) and the buzzing resumed. Odd... She still fired right up, I rotated the timer in my hand (I know shouldn't do it with electricity flowing), and the angle of the timer made all the difference in the world as to whether it buzzed or not. So I'm assuming I have a bad timer.... The thing is probably about 6 years old on the dot so I'm not about to toss it however, I'm apprehensive to buy another $65 - $75 timer if it could be something else... A bit hard to troubleshoot when everything is working except for a very loud buzzing noise coming out of the timer... LOL...

Why don't they build things to last anymore.... Thoughts?
