Question about Washing Machines
I over turned my washing maschine's temperature control knob, so now its on the 90 degrees celsius. Do I have to replace whole control panel or just that knob?
It depends on whether the knob is slipping or that the contacts are working within. Please check and see if the controls can be moved further and the temperature cuts off earlier than 90. If so the control and the thermocouple is working and the external knob needs to be replaced

SOURCE: Hello Advisors, I need real help
The hot water should be as hot as the inlet temp water.
170degrees. There is no internal heater to increase the water temp.
Please check that the hot water supply valve is turned on.
Check the hot water inlet hose is not kinked.
Also - remove the hot water hose and make sure the shipping plug from the hose hookup was removed.
If the hot water supply is on, and there is verified hot water coming from the hose (into a bucket) it will be time for some warranty work - as your mixing valve solenoid (hot side) has failed.
Thanks for using FixYa!!

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.

in some instances there is either a set screw(generally a small allen head) or a small pin that has to be forced out. these keep the knob from spinning on the shaft and stripping it.

The topside control panel has four small torx screws that hold the control panel to the rear. The timer has a small U clip under the knob that needs to be removed with needle nose and then the knob comes off so the timer can be replaced. I have your washer's training manual HERE
