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.

Hi, This is a common problem with the hotpoint range. It will be the main wash bearings that have failed and need replacing. This is a very easy process but is quite time consuming. Remember tho change everything that is; Bearings, and bearing spider and front tub seal as you dont want to have to do it again in a short time or have leaks coming from the front.
Good luck and get back to me if you need any further help....................

I have a similar Hotpoint model to this, that does something very similar now and again, usually when trying to set a delayed start.
The only way I have found to "fix" it is to turn the machine off for at least 5 minutes, and then try again.
Hope this helps.

I know how frustrating it can be when appliances do not function properly.
This particular washer has a test that we can run to see any errors. This can be confusing on this model.
I am including a document below that will describe how to view the old error codes. Use the section that starts with Activating the service diagnostic modes. You can start with the cycle selector knob at any position.
If there are no error codes stored, I recommend that you start from the beginning (step 1 above) and then run the Automatic test mode. If this unit detects a problem, it will display the error at the end of this test.
I hope this is helpful. Post back your results.
