Hi, Look at the knob side that slides onto the switch. Do you see any cracks? If so, just get a new knob. I can get that and send you one if that is the problem. Just get me the model #.

Hope this helped you.

The dial to select wash cycle (GE top load washer) seems loose. It is difficult to turn, as if something is not engaging. Any suggestions?


The knob wears out and won't grab. It is easy enough to replace if you know the trick. Take pair of tweezers and remove the clip behind the knob, just push on the replacement knob and oil the timer then move the timer around several times to help the shaft turn easier.b8e8a25.jpg

GE WASHER MODEL #WBSR3140G0WW: TEETH ON CONTROL


I suspect that a mounting tab has broken off the timer. Take the four torx head screws off the back edge of the top of the washer and open up the backsplash to confirm this. I manufacture a make shift Z shaped metal part to hold the timer in place without having to replace the timer.

Cycle control GE WHDSR315 top loading washer.


Try pulling the knobs off completely and squirting WD-40 into the switch interior--work the oil in by reinstalling the knobs and moving them around. If no help, then the area behind the control panel must be accessed (pull the power plug), and the control replaced (you should have seen the mounting screws when the knobs were off).

There should be a spring clip that holds the timer knob on. It or the timer knob may need replaced. Here is a picture of the timer knob and the spring clip. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

The timer knob spins freely and I can't start the machine or set the timer.


"Can I replace it with a new knob or do I have to buy a new timer?"

It sounds like the knob is rounded out where it fits on the timer post, or It may just be loose. Pull the knob off and inspect it. If damaged, yes, you can buy another one.

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.
