Question about GE WJRR4170E Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Control knob will not turn to desired setting

I have a GE WJRR4170G0WW, Ser #FM909711G. The control knob turns but will not turn the dial to settings. If you grab knoband dial together and press real hard, you can get it to setting. It will run through all the cycles just fine once you get it to settings, so I dont think it is the timer. Any thoughts? Any help is greatly appreciated as I dont want to spend money I dont need to.

The timer knob has a clip that will allow you to remove the knob from the timer. it is between the knob and the dial. what happens is the knob has gear like teeth that will become stripped out.it is easy to replace but alittle hard to remove. you need to get a small screwdriver and go behind the knob, pull on it alittle and you will see the clip, then use the screwdriver to push the clip out of the knob, then the knob will pull of and you can replace it.

Dial won't set


you can possibly remove the knob itself, and see if you can turn the dial itself. if you can, then you can probably see the knob is broken. if if the shaft turns, but doesn't move the gears, then you will just need a new dial switch.

I have a brand new Sherman Timeoff Water Timer Model 500 in a box, but there are no instructions. Can you help?


It appears that you turn the dial to any setting from 1 to 13 depending upon how much water you want the timer to dispense. The numbers show relative amounts from 100 total gallons to 400 total gallons, then the timer shuts off.

The knob on my WJRR4170G0WW spins freely without turning the dial. Is this simply a case of changing the knob or do I have to worry about changing the timer as well? Thanks!


I just had the same thing happen to me. You have to replace the electronic part inside of the unit, where the knob attaches. That runs about $76.00 and I think I'll shop for a new machine.

Install trim and adjust the thermostat on a Grohe shower faucet


Before you install the temperature control knob, adjust the valve body (47111) with a wrench to set the temperature to "100 degree or close to it". Now, place the limit ring to tdc (top dead center) and control knob with the red 100-degree align to it. Your problem may have been the valve's temperature setting is out range when you installing the temperature control knob.

The dial doesn't turn with the knob pushed in, when we go to set the wash. but it does move manually with finger tips


The teeth on the knob are probably gone. To pull the knob off remove the clip between the knob and the dial and pull knob off.

GE Spacemaker Washer/Dryer wont start only washer or only dryer


Did you figure out a solution to this problem? I just bought a brand new Frigidaire and it is doing the exact same thing, except it never worked properly. I thought it was the unit and had HH Greg bring another out but the 2nd one did the same as the first.

set the oven temperature, set the time(s) and to set up your range. To use the 
touchpad, press the center part of the pad with the flat part of your fingertip. A 
beep will sound to indicate that the selection has been made. Turn the dial to the 
desired setting and press START.

1. Access SELECT FUNCTIONS Menu. 
2. Turn knob clockwise until CLOCK DISPLAY is displayed. 
3. Press START.
