Usually, if you pull the knob off of the timer assy, you will see in the that knob a "KNOTCH" that is used to align the knob to the timer. That could have been stripped out. Check that first.

If it no longer clicks, the timer assembly will need to be replaced. If just the knob broke off, the timer should be good.

SOURCE: How do I remove the selector knob on washer

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: GE Washer wbsr3140d5ww water problem

Hello Chad
Welcome

Sounds like the cold water knob or switch is not switching and may be faulty.

I have a problem with my washer
For some reason when I try to start the washer and I have it set to cold it does not work if I put it to hot then its fine
The cold water does work though because if I change the washer to a later cycle cold water comes out just fine.
So it almost seems like its the timer knob
any ideas?
Thanks

SOURCE: timer switch on GE washer

You don't state your exact model number, and the number off the timer is not the actual part number (it's some sort of part stamping number). Most likely what has happened is a plastic tab on the timer housing (which normally goes into a slot in the metal, and thus holds the timer at that point) has broken off. The fix is to replace the timer, but instead of buying a new timer, I usually fashion a Z type piece of metal which I can put one screw though into the metal and the other side holding the timer against the metal. Takes a little work, but it's a lot cheaper than a new timer.
If you want to take the timer knob off, you have to pull it out and use a thin tool, like a small screwdriver, to push the plastic clip off the shaft behind the knob, allowing the knob to then come off the shaft. Push the clip back on the knob when off, so that all you have to do to reinstall the knob is push it on and it will lock on the shaft again.

Our washer will continue in the final spin cycle and never finish.


That sounds to me like a problem with the timer. Is it hard to turn? You can add some zoomspout oil to these timers and twist em aound till they are easy to turn and sometimes fix that problem of the timer hanging up. The timer knob is an interesting design. To install the timer knob you simply push th e knob on and the clip holds it in place. But to get the timer knob off you have to use tweasers or equivthemobilian_1186.jpg

GE WASHER MODEL #WBSR3140G0WW: TEETH ON CONTROL


I suspect that a mounting tab has broken off the timer. Take the four torx head screws off the back edge of the top of the washer and open up the backsplash to confirm this. I manufacture a make shift Z shaped metal part to hold the timer in place without having to replace the timer.

Kenmore Washer, Loose Timer Knob


There should be a spring clip that holds the timer knob on. It or the timer knob may need replaced. Here is a picture of the timer knob and the spring clip. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

The timer knob spins freely and I can't start the machine or set the timer.


"Can I replace it with a new knob or do I have to buy a new timer?"

It sounds like the knob is rounded out where it fits on the timer post, or It may just be loose. Pull the knob off and inspect it. If damaged, yes, you can buy another one.
