if you pull on the knob it will come off it has a metal clip that is pretty snug on the stem but it will come off, you still have to take the cack cover plate off to get to the switch and do the actual replacement

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
See the following for how to release the console:
Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers:
If this is a basic top load, direct drive washer, these units may have one of two different timers. (See the Whirlpool PDF).
On models with a metal timer, you have to release the console, pull it forward and tilt it back in order to get to the back of the timer.
The knob screws onto a medal shaft that goes through the timer.
Usually, trying to un-screw the knob won't work by itself since the shaft will also turn.
I found that if you hold the back of the shaft with a thin needle-nosed pliers, you can unscrew the knob.
Then you simply have to disconnect the timer.
The Whirlpool PDF also has troubleshooting and testing procedures for the timer.
