SOURCE: How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer

I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: The Cycle selector Knob of

The timer motor is bad. I am assuming that you can move the timer by hand and access all cycles. Usually this means a whole new timer. You can try to order the motor seperately but it is usually not available alone. The new timer can cost around $100. Why don't you try a used appliance store and see if they will sell you one. The timer motor is fairly standard. The timer itself is not. Just buy a used timer and swap motors.

SOURCE: washer not going in cycles

Where you attached the new hose on the side of the tub, you must remove that hose and insert a small wire in the hole in the cup and clean out the soap scum. Re-attach the hose. Set the washer on spin and run a spin cycle. Then retry your wash cycle.
Make sure the new hose is not pinched anywhere.

WHDSR209DWW on/off button will not engage to spin the cycle selector dial


The cycle selector is not engaged onto the timer shaft. Need to remove the on/off knob by removing the plastic "U" clip. Remove the cycle selctor knob and check that the steel spring clip on the selector is fully seated. Re-install the cycle selector onto the timer shaft aligning the selector key with the with tthe notch on the timer shaft. Re-install the on/off knob.

The cycle selector and on/off combination is a poor design. Users press the on/off knob in and turn clockwise to set the wash cycle. If you're not gentle this action wears the teeth on the timer shaft and the user has to press harder and harder to set the wash cycle. This pressing causes the cycle selector to be pushed off the timer shaft and you can no longer operate the machine.

VERY IMPORTANT:
Stop using the on/off knob to set the wash cycle. Press on the cycle selector to set the wash cycle. Use the on/off knob only for starting or stopping the machine. Don't press or pull too hard on the on/off knob or you will wind up pushing the cycle selector off the timer shaft.

The cycle selector knob turns very fast and the wash goes from the fill mode to the drain mode and does not wash or spin.


the problem is with the selector.behind this,ther is a wheel with teeth.one of the teeth must be broken,causing the selector to turn too fast.

If the machine is not recognizing the water level, and continues to fill...the pressure switch is most likely bad
