Re: Control Knob Replacement

When you pull it the control knob works;  however,  if you try to turn it,  it does not seem to lock on?  free flow?  like it has lost its attachment?  any ideas-suggestions please

Re: Control Knob Replacement

Either pull it off or look for a set screw on the bottom. could be a regular screw but most likely an allen head set screw. go to repairclinic dot com for a replacement

I have a hotpoint Aquarius 1000 Washer/Dryer model number wd23w had it about 15 i used the dryer for first time and now everytime i put on a wash as soon as it is finished it goes straight on to dryer

you will prob find the knob for the dryer has broken
so you turn the knob but it doesn't turn the switch
remove the knob which just pushes on and pulls off
and look at the shaft of the knob you may see it has cracked
if you do just replace the knob and you should be fine

Frigidaire washer control knob problem


I think the problem wont be that much serious. Try any electrically skilled labour to check the knobs and get it replaced. Dont allow those who dont know about electrical/electronic things.

Kenmore 90 plus machine, top loader. the machine fills with water and agitates. It does not stop. The knob stays on the initial timer setting

Easy fix. Replace the timer. The timer drive motor or gears inside have failed. Their are 2 styles of timers. Plastic type base and a metal type base. The plastic timer has a hollow shaft. A plastic rod with a rounded tip is inserted into the hollow shaft to hold the timer knob in place. To remove the knob and skirt on these you simply yank out the rod and the knob will come on off. Then you can yank off the skirt (dial Indicator) and the timer mounting screws will then be revealed. The other style has a threaded shaft in which the knob will unscrew and the skirt can be removed so you can get to the timer mounting screws. A big old molex type plug goes into the timer. You yank that out and look for corrosion before buying anything AND make sure that plug is in there tight because it can vibrate out.

The set knob on my kenmore 70 series top load washer is stripped and I can't figure out how to remove it. The knob just spins and will not move inner set arrow to proper load cycle

flip up the controls
The timer has a hollow shaft. The tip of the shaft has
ears on it. To keep the knob on there a small rod is shoved up into the hollow shaft. The rod spreads the tip and retains the knob. To remove the knob pull out the rod a half inch and the knob and skirt is easily removed.
This video shows how to get into the machine:

The knob on my kenmore elite won't move the timer.

The knob itself turns the switch on . The skirt move the timer position. Try turning the skirt. You probably have a broken knob. On these the knob is held in place with a plastic rod inserted into it all the way. This spreads the tip and retains the knob. To get the knob off to yank out the skirt for a look see you need to pull that rod out a tad to release the knob. 88be11a.jpgThat shaft has a rounded end on it that spreads out and locks the knob on. Clever ain't it? These timers are cheaply made, if you cannot find fault with the knob or the skirt then you is gonna need a timer.

Drying time on aquarius vtd20

The timer is an electro/\mechanical one , and is usually non repairable, the only thing you can do short of replacing it, is to remove the top cover, and clean away any fluff or dust that you can see, and spray inside the the unit with wd 40.
If this does not solve the prob, then you will have replace the timer complete.
Please rate my fixya solution.

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 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.

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.
