We purchased a GE Washing Machine (Model WDSR2080G) in 2007. I had to replaced the Control Knob and now a washing cycle takes approx 2 hours ! Do I have to resent the knob somehow ?

If it is leaking from the waste pump area it may be blocked by a small piece of clothing like a sock or something similar! This will also cause it to take too long to complete a cycle. Remove the rubber hose onto the waste pump and check inside the hose and the pump, make sure the pump spins freely and that nothing is stuck in the hose pipes leading to the pump

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: how does the timer knob come off

Push the knob to the off position then spin it to the left. it should just screw off. There is only one or two models that dont. To acces the timer you have to take the 2 screws out of the corners of the control panel (philips) They are either on the front or the back of the machine, left and right corners. The whole control panel will pull forward and then lift up and flip back. Theres the timer. Any more questions let me know.

SOURCE: Washing machine will not drain.

I have the same problem. If I press on the lid by the switch it starts up and finishes the load. Hope this works for you!

Check your program settings. If wash quality is good, it's OK. Check your inlet water has sufficient pressure! Refer user manual

Washing machine will not complete spin cycle


OK, what you are experiencing is a timer mechanism fault. the timer motor is malfunctioning. anytime you have to manually advance the timer knob, this will signal a fault within the control mech. this is easily fixed by, replacing the timer control module. i will place a link to the actual part needed to fix this issue. you can also purchase this timer on line at this site if you wish.

Program knob on GE washing machine not functioning


Older washing machines had a 2 position knob push or pull to set and the other position to run, also if the timer is bad it can be replaced the parts are still available on the Internet.
