Un plug it. There should be small screws either at the bottom of the panel on the front or there is separate panel that comes off the top back. If the back is one solid piece top to bottom, then the control panel lifts out and hinges up when the two small cross tip screws are removed from the bottom outside corners of the control panel..

To remove the Top you need to pop small torx covers on each side at the top (near to front). Then unscrew the torx each side. the top will then slide back about 5mm.
Once the top is opened you will have a major task of removing all cables from control unity behind facia and the holding screws. Depending on the damage to the button/plastic you may be able to pop the button into place. It is also possible you may need to order a new control unit from hotpoint. I believe you can order online for minimum hassle.

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.

in some instances there is either a set screw(generally a small allen head) or a small pin that has to be forced out. these keep the knob from spinning on the shaft and stripping it.
