Question about GE WBXR2090B Top Load Washer
I have the washer almost 11 years. It's the second time it has broke.
How would I fix it? If it's too hard, does it pay to fix or should I just buy a new one? How much should it cost to fix? The big companies around sub-contract the work out. If it pays to fix it, who should I get to do the repair?
There should be 2 screws holding it on at the rear. Looking from the rear these will be at each top corner. Once these are removed push the lid from the front of the machine towards the rear and it will pop off.

If the knob is tight on the timer stem, then the timer has failed.
If the knob is loose, then maybe just the knob has failed.
You can order either of these from a number of places. One I recommend is searspartsdirect.com. YOu just enter your model number and find the exploded view for the controls. If it does not find it, drop a number off the end of the model number that you've given and try again.
They are easy to replace.
Reply back and I can give you more advice or instruction.

you have a broken coupler...this is a plastic and rubber part that connects the motor to the transmission. A $20 part
How good are you and your tools?

SOURCE: Broken knob on GE washer
There are four separate parts that make up the knob dial. You can pull off the knob if you use a screwdriver/pliers to remove the clip holding it on. Check if the mounting areas appear stripped or broken. There should also be a compression ring in the mounting hole on the back of the knob. That's what may be broken or stripped. These are all parts that you can get from a local parts store (check the phone book) and you can do it yourself. Any of those parts should cost less than $10. The bad news is if you stripped the pole coming out of the timer assembly. You would need to replace the entire assembly which costs about $130. If you call a GE repairman, you are looking at $89.95 or more just to have them show up. If it is still under warranty, there is no charge. You can call them to verify this:

"Can I replace it with a new knob or do I have to buy a new timer?"
It sounds like the knob is rounded out where it fits on the timer post, or It may just be loose. Pull the knob off and inspect it. If damaged, yes, you can buy another one.
