Question about Kenmore 24812
I loaded my washer and set it on the correct load size, washer temp. etc. Turned the control knob to start it. Pulled knob out and nothing happened. Knob feels loose when it is turning--almost like it is stripped. All the other setting knobs turn fine. There is power to the machine and the water hose is hooked up fine. Just did a load yesterday and it worked fine. Help please!
The knob is a simple screw on knob and the replacement part number is 3353309. Cost is 16.50. It will have a metal back as opposed to the plastic one you must have now. Shipping would Should you choose to order, follow this link:

If the washer does not shut off when filling, the pressure switch is usually the culprit. The following link explains:
In many cases, the only problem is the air hose comes loose from the switch, or is cracked or punctured somewhere. If the air hose is intact, and the electrical connections are good (no broken, loose, or corroded wires), then I would recommend replacing the switch. The part is available at searspartsdirect.com. Just go to the website and type in the model number you have provided and go to the "Washer/Dryer Control Panel" heading for itme number 13 (part #3952465). I hope this helps you. Please let me know if you require additional assistance.

Something in the timer came apart. Timer needs replaced. When in good working order, the timer should ONLY ever be turned clockwise..Reversing this could break it.

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
See the following for how to release the console:
Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers:
If this is a basic top load, direct drive washer, these units may have one of two different timers. (See the Whirlpool PDF).
On models with a metal timer, you have to release the console, pull it forward and tilt it back in order to get to the back of the timer.
The knob screws onto a medal shaft that goes through the timer.
Usually, trying to un-screw the knob won't work by itself since the shaft will also turn.
I found that if you hold the back of the shaft with a thin needle-nosed pliers, you can unscrew the knob.
Then you simply have to disconnect the timer.
The Whirlpool PDF also has troubleshooting and testing procedures for the timer.
