Knob Comes Off

We have an Ultimate Care II washing machine from Whirlpool and the timer knob comes off everytime you pull on it to start the wash cycle. How do I keep this from happening?

    If there is a metal insert (with threads) you could try crazy-gluing the metal insert back into the knob -- be careful not to get glue on the metal threads. If this works, you can save a few bucks.

These knobs are made of plastic and usually have a metal insert inside them. The plastic is the problem. Over time with use these knobs will crack inside near the metal insert. That's how they become so loose. This is an easy fix though. Call your nearest appliance repair service center and give them your model and serial numbers and tell them the part you need. You can usually locate the numbers you need under the lid of the machine. hope this helps you out. Good luck.

here is one trick to do. put the timer on spin and pull out the timer knob. open the lid and use a screw driver to actuate the lid switch. then with your other hand hold the agitator until the tub gets to a high spin. once the unit is at a high spin then let go of the agitator. let the unit spin for another minute then lift up you screw driver. it should come to a gradual stop and not a sudden stop. let me konw if that works.
