Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a GE Beuamark model #56041AOWW. I had to replace the timer as the teeth in the pull knob broke and so did the teeth in the timer wheel. The the first time I used the washer, it flooded (yes, I should have watched it), so then I replaced the pressure switch. Fills up & stops fine, now it won't spin. It agitates good, but that's it. Help!

SOURCE: ge timer on washer is broken

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: 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.

SOURCE: GE washer no main motor run so no agitate or spin

This is the electronic washer. Unplug for two minutes, plugin then open and close lid 7 times. This will reset motor. Also make sure belt is not broken.

The control knob is stripped & I removed that; also found that the plastic part with teeth that the control knob operates is also stripped. Where can I find both parts and what is involved in...


Used to be that you could buy the ratcheting coupler piece for 5 or 10 bucks for the old GE machines. Alas, no more. The newer GE timer must be replaced if the teeth are stripped.

Be careful not to damage the indicator dial when doing this repair as it is about $20 for a round piece of plastic and a tiny steel clip. Pry this off using opposite points of the dial (grab it at the 9 o'clock and the three o'clock positions with as many fingers as possible) and pull gently so as not to set up any fractures in the dial's hub.

Unplug machine, remove knobs, end panels. Remove remaining screws that hold the control panel and tilt forward. Removing the fascia will reveal the screws that hold the timer on.

Sears PartsDirect wants about $80 for the timer.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

I have a GE top load washer model #WJRR4170GWW. When I attempted to change the load size from large to super, the knob broke and came off the control panel. Now there is just a hole on the control...


themobilian_130.jpgThe new part has a clip in it that holds it to the shaft of the timer. Installing it is so easy. Just slip the new knob on the shaft of the timer. IF the shaft is still on the timer. Did you mean the shaft came out of the timer? In that case you would need a new timer.

The timer dial has to be pushed in manually to get it to engage the gears (really hard to do). Now when we pull it out, the water does not come on.


The timer knob and or the timer may need replacing here is a link for checking and replacing http://appliancehelponline.com/topwashertimervideo.html
The inner knob teeth tend to wear off on the ge top loaders, so check that first. You might have also broke the screw tabs that hold the timer in place from having to push it hard.

The knob is not working. It just turns without starting the washer. I have to press down hard to get the knob to turn to the cycle I want. Is there a way to fix this? GE Top Loader WHDSR109J


This is a common failure. The teeth on the knob have worn off. If you pull the knob out you will see a small clip that can be pulled off this will release the knob. Usually both pieces of the knob need to be replaced. For diagrams and illustrations enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com

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.

Wash cycle dial wont turn...will still push in and pull to start


We have a GE WJRR4170 washer, with the same problem. At first I thought I might have to unscrew the entire control panel just to replace the knob. However, replacing the knob turns out to be easy.

Right behind the knob, holding it in place, is a nylon/plastic retainer clip. If you pull out the knob (into the "start" position), you will get easier access to the retainer clip. You can use a flathead screwdriver to push the clip out. The knob then will slide easily off the metal stem. A GE replacement knob costs $9 or $10, depending on the source.

Shame on GE, but the knob is designed terribly. The part of it that engages the dial has eight, flimsy plastic teeth. At any time, four of these are supposed to engage four little slots in the dial. However, the way the knob is designed, there will be a lot of wear and tear on these plastic teeth, so they'll wear out on every single machine.

Good luck to the many people who will have this problem!

Washer control knob just spins


The knob is prob stripped, very common for this washer.
Get it off and look at the teeth. To remove the knob you need a pair of surgical pliers. Reach behind the knob and yank the retaining clip out. If the teeth are smooth you need to replace the knob. Oil the timer so it will be easier to turn by the way. To put the new knob you simply slide it in place with the clip on it. So easy you won't believe it.

Control knob will not turn to desired setting


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.
