Dial knob issues

The knob to turn the dial to the type of wash you wish to choose just turns in a circle and odes not engage the dial. I ordered a new knob and because I was told by a repairman that the dial was working but the knob's threads were worn. I got a new knob but it sill won't engage the dial. I use the washer by turning the dial by pressing hard by hand to turn it. it's annoying!

The control panel may in *LOCKED* mode. Press the *OPTIONS* and *SELECT* buttons at the same time and hold for about three seconds to unlock the control panel. Make sure the detergent tray is fully closed too.

SOURCE: Dial does not advance through all parts of the wash cycle

Replace the timer of the unit. With the mothel number that is behind the timer, you can order it. The timer location is at the back of the unit. Remouve the cover at the back of the control panel, then look for the part that look like a smal motor at the back of the knob. remouve the knob and the small screws, then desconect the wires plugs, do not cut any wire. then instal the new one.

Remove the front panel and inspect the drive belt. It is probably worn out and or stretched.
The Frigidaire style you have does not take overloading very well.
Also check the lid switch for continuity. It must be good for agitation to occur.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The problem is with the control board that is bad and needs replacement as you have already checked everything else and even the pump & motor is fine. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

How do i reset washing machine AEG 64840


You can choose the right programme for any type of laundry following the descriptions on the washing programme tables (see ┬źWashing Programmes┬╗).
Turn the programme selector dial to the required programme. The programme selector determines the type of washing cycle (e.g. water level, drum movement, number of rinses) and the washing temperature according to the type of laundry.
The pilot light of button 8 starts blinking.
The selector dial can be turned either clockwise or anticlockwise. Position "0" to Reset programme/ Switching OFF of the machine.
At the end of the programme the selector dial must be turned to position "0", to switch the machine off.
If you turn the programme selector dial to another programme when the machine is working, the yellow pilot light of button 8 will blink 3 times and the message Err is displayed on the display to indicate a wrong selection. The machine will not perform the new selected programme.

I want to replace a timer on a Whirlpool washer Model# LSN1000KQW


Good day Mr.james dant..

Whirlpool manufactures many types of washing machines. Whirlpool's top load models rely on an analog timer that controls the cycle used to wash the clothes in the washing machine, rather than a digital control board found in most front load models. The timer contains a number of moving parts and is physically turned to choose the wash cycle. Because of the high usage of the timer, it will eventually break, requiring replacement. Rather than calling a service technician to repair the timer, replace the timer yourself to save both time and money.
Instructions
1. Unplug the washing machine from the wall outlet

2. Turn the dial to the "Off" position and then unscrew the knob from the timer. To unscrew, hold the dial with one hand and turn the knob counter-clockwise.

3. Lift the dial off of the washing machine.

4. Remove the two mounting screws securing the timer into position. 5. Remove the two screws from the bottom left and right sides of the control panel, then rotate the control panel up 180 degrees.
6. Remove the wire harness from the old timer and remove the old timer
7. Connect the wire harness to the new timer.

8. Place the timer into the control panel. Hold the timer post with one hand and rotate the control panel back down. Secure the timer into place using the mounting screws that were removed from the old timer
9. Place the dial back onto the timer post and then screw the knob onto the post.
10. Plug the washer back into the wall outlet

So in other words your looking to replace the knobs on your timer correct? you can order new knobs and the under side of the knob if you think that is the issue otherwise you would also have to order a new timer as well if the seating to where the dial goes into is stripped on the timer you can use this company to order any of your parts there very helpful and alot cheaper then the other companies I find http://www.allbrandonline.com/Default.aspx?Page=My%20Account%20Profile if you have any further questions or need a part number to any piece on your unit message me back the correct model number and I will look into your situation further.

Cannot set Control dial for wash cycle. Knob will not move indicator dial. Rotating without engaging indicator. Thanks


Pull the center knob strait off. I suspect the center shaft of the knob is broken. If it is order a new knob but before replacing it make sure the shaft on the timer does not have a metal sleeve from the knob remaining on the timer shaft. Temporarily you can try to use needle nose pliers to turn the shaft to see if the washer works.

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!
