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
turn off water disconnect hoses those inlets are operated by cylnoids they either have trash causeing the valve not to close all the way or need to be replaced turn your selector knob and listen for the valves to click if they do and you see no trash stoping the valves they need replaceing you can call an appliance repair shop and order the parts when replaceing turn power off !!!! not to hard to replace
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
replace fill valve trash has gotten past screens in valve or screens are missing..remove screws each rear corner of console ..lift console ..remove lid switch plug remove clips each corner of top pull cabinet forward and off
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.
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.
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.
