The cycle set knob is stripped.how to fix?


There is a little white plastic clip holding the knob on behind the knob. Remove the clip and the knob comes off. I use hemostats to pull the clip. Just push on the replacement knob (be sure it has the clip on it), until it clicks into place.

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!

Washer control knob just spins


The knob is prob stripped, very common for this washer.
Get it off and look at the teeth. To remove the knob you need a pair of surgical pliers. Reach behind the knob and yank the retaining clip out. If the teeth are smooth you need to replace the knob. Oil the timer so it will be easier to turn by the way. To put the new knob you simply slide it in place with the clip on it. So easy you won't believe it.

Kenmore washer 110.92292100..Washer Timer Control Knob is broken, just spins around..don't know how to get it off to replace it. Need a replacement part. Called a repair man, he wants $75.00 just to come...


If the knob is tight on the timer stem, then the timer has failed.

If the knob is loose, then maybe just the knob has failed.

You can order either of these from a number of places. One I recommend is searspartsdirect.com. YOu just enter your model number and find the exploded view for the controls. If it does not find it, drop a number off the end of the model number that you've given and try again.

They are easy to replace.

Reply back and I can give you more advice or instruction.

Washing machine malfunction


If this is a GE Washer, and you have diagnosed the problem as a defective pressure switch and wish to replace it, you can find the part at searspartsdirect.com as item #10 under the "Controls and Backsplash" heading. You will need to type in your COMPLETE model number in the Search menu. The Sears website offers an illustrated parts view, showing the location of the part and how the washer is assembled. You can also find the part at repairclinic.com as item #2205 for slightly less. Both sell for about $30.

Now...if you have not inspected the pressure switch yet, and are merely assuming you have a switch problem you may not need to replace it at all. Open the operator console and locate the pressure switch. It is a cylindrical shaped device (on the right hand side looking in from the rear of the washer) with wire connectors and an air hose attached. Sometimes, the air hose comes loose and falls off the switch. This will give you the same symptoms you are describing. Simply reattaching the hose will often fix the problem. To keep the air hose from coming off again, you can take a small zip tie and place it around the hose where it attaches over the air fitting on the pressure switch. Make the zip tie snug, but not too tight. Over-tightening can break the air hose fitting. This will create enough resistance to keep the hose in place. NOTE: If the air hose is still attached, take the time to inspect the entire length of the hose from the switch to the point where it connects to the wash tub for cracks or holes.

If you still need to replace the switch, UNPLUG the washer and remove the switch knob from the front of the washer. There is a small retaining clip that needs to slide out behind the knob, first. Remove the clip, the knob slides off the shaft. Open the console from the back and remove the connectors and air hose from the switch. There should be a couple of mounting screws holding the switch in place. Remove the screws and the switch is out. Re-install the new switch in the reverse order of the steps I provided.

I hope you find this info helpful. Let me know if you need further assistance.
