Drying time knob broke

I was about to put my washing on to dry and as i turned the drying knob (think its part 1602413) it came off in my hand and the knob was broken. a bit of plastic has falled into the washer but i have the actual dial. Its just over 2 years old so not in warrenty. I was wondering if anyone knows if i buy the part if i can just slide it back on or do i need a repair man out to do it? am so useless when it comes to these things so really stuck :-(

    "If you see that the switch shaft is broken off, replace the switch as well"

    thankyou for your response, by what u said above does that mean the metal that sticks out which the knob goes onto? i think that looks ok.

    I think the inside of the machine got water in it due to broken pipe. I allowed 2 days for machine to dry out. Now when I turn it on, the dial clicks around. The washer manual calls this an "anomoly." Will probably have to call a repair tech but I would like to be a little knowledgeable so I don't get soaked.
    thx, kathy

You should be able to simply push the new knob right on the switch shaft. If part of the broken knob shaft is on the switch, remove it first before installing the new knob. If you see that the switch shaft is broken off, replace the switch as well. Hope this helps.

    Great, don't worry about the switch then, just buy a new knob.

How do I dry only


When using the WD-1000 as a Dryer only, are you turning the rightmost knob Clockwise to the correct starting point?
Looking at the periphery of the knob, at the bottom, see the elongated "sausage" shape, outlined in blue? Turn the knob so it passes "Stop", and points there.
At the end of a completed Wash Cycle, that is where the pointer will be pointing. Once there, the machine switches automatically to Dryer Mode.
As long as the middle dial is set to a timer length greater than zero, the drying begins. I recommend turning the middle dial to somewhere around 2:00 o'clock, which corresponds to about 90 minutes if I remember correctly.
(You'll notice that is in the "Orange" area, meaning Full Heat - which is always fine because it never gets too hot anyway)

So, turn right dial to point to the "white sausage" at the bottom of the dial; Turn middle dial to 90 mins, or so; (Left dial only controls "Spin" speed - just set to max); and close the door. (It should begin drying)

I have a gas dryer. It heats up just fine, but it won't shut off. if put on time dry it won't count down the time and on any other cycle it will just keep running and drying


Oh I can't think of the name of it right now but the whole knob assembly inside needs to be replaced. It's like a timer its integrated into the knob.

Stop motion knob will not disengage the needle when winding a bobbin


Hi,
The stop motion knob on most older sewing machines is very much the same. You should find a small screw on the face of the knob. Loosen this but don't take it all the way out, it is real easy to lose and hard to find a replacement. Loosen it until you can turn the knob counterclockwise past the stop. Now remove the knob and there will be funny shaped washer underneath. Pay attention to how it goes on, you will have to put it back the same way.
Now to the "why" of your problem. The assembly has run dry, no oil, and the hand wheel should turn freely on the center shaft. You may be able to get some oil in with no problem or you may have to remove the motor belt to remove the hand wheel.
I find this a lot on old machines, nothing broken, just no oil.
Good luck,
Bob

I have a Hotpoint WDF740 washer dryer. When I turn the dial it doesn't register any cycle it doesn't make any noise when the dial is turned, therefore I can't use the machine at all. Can this...


This just happened to my hotpoint washing machine, I realise it has been a long time since this has been asked but since my answer is different from the others I thought I'd add it anyway in the hope it will be useful to someone one day. The fix was super easy, all that was wrong was the plastic knob itself, which had broken internally. I only found this out after taking the top and front covers off, which is an easy enough procedure, I did it this way: unplugged the washing machine, removed two screws from back of machine that hold top cover in place, then using a putty knife pushed between the top and front covers front to back right at the corners, thus releasing the top cover, once this was out I could unclip the front cover and get to the screws that hold the control board to the front cover. I unplugged the electrical connection to the board, removed all the screws and unclipped it from its plastic cover. At this point I could see the plastic knob had broken, I recovered the broken bit and glued it back on. After the glue dried, I just put everything back in place reverting the previous actions. Hope this helps. If you don't have glue or can't find the broken piece, you should be able to just buy another plastic knob off the internet.

Check the water bottle. Ours has been doing the same but putting a bit of j cloth between what they call the o ring and the cap fixed it. Really you need a new bottle assembly

Drying operation on WD16BA on smeg dryer


I think all you have to do (that's how I do it anyway), is turn the program knob so that the line is at the beginning of the drying stage (the little 'sun'), having first of course chosen the desired amount of drying time with the knob on the far left...
Hope this helps, good luck...
