If you mean the knob that turns the water on and off, then you will have to replace the complete the water valve, as the knob is not available on it's own.

How do I replace broken washer cycle selector knob on speed queen top loader


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
These knobs are normally the pull off type so all you have to do is get a small flat tip screw driver behind the knob and gently pry it out to get it started then it should slide off
However if you are needing to replace the entire part then the top back section of the machine may need to come off it may even have some screws behind the white side plates that allow to be removed and the top part folds up and back allowing you to axcess the part ok this part is usually held on by 2 or 3 screws

Kenmore Series 80 Washer timer knob spins


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.

TOP LOADING WASHER leaking water


Check the pump and the inlet valves. The pump is located behind the drain line, and the two inlet valves are located in behind the knobs up top and can be removed by removing two screws up top and then removing the screws on the back side

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.

Replace mixing valve


There are usually 2 screws on the front of the machine just above the lower access panel, but on the bottom of the front panel which need to be removed before the entire top of the machine will slide off of the front. Also be sure to access the control switch area to unplug the wiring harness before you move the top of the machine too far.

Hot/Cold water knob will not work on washing machine


Does the water flow when you have it on warm or cold settings?  If on warm setting and water flow is cold, its probably the mixing valve.  This part isnt that expensive, and not that hard to replace.  Remove the two front console caps, remove the two console hold down screws then flip the console out and then over the top.  You will see two gold cabinet hold down clamps, pop them out, the lift the whole cabinet off the unit.   You will see the mixing valve right where the inlet hoses connect to the machine.  Let me know if you need further help.
