SOURCE: Removal of the timer knob.
you have two different knobs to replace?..is it the water level knob or the timer knob?
if its the timer knob you need to remove, look underneath the timer and you will find a black plastic pin depressed at the middle. pull it slowly for about 1/4 of an inch.
then you can remove the knob in the front of the timer switch.
in putting it back, install the knob first in the timer and then depressed that black plastic pin to lock the knob.
be carefull not to pull the plastic pin all the way out. it would be very hard to put it back in.

The main selector control know spins off by turning the selector inner knob counterclockwise. The outer ring will then pull off. The other knobs are held on with friction and should just pull off.
The best way to get behind the front panel is by removing the top panel of the machine. There should be 2 gray/solver tabs at the back of the machine near the top if you remove the 2/4 screws from the top then the whole top panel will slide forward then lift off.
Be sure to unplug the machine first.

SOURCE: timer replacement
the knob, actually, unscrews. pull out the knob as if you are starting a wash cycle, and use needle-nose pliers to hold the back, and unscrew. i learned the hard way when i pulled on it like it was one of the other knobs and yanked the post out.

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.
