    I drilled the stub of the old knob - I got it off. Now where do I get just a knob and not the entire timer assesmby - you know, like it was in the old days when you could replace just the broken parts and not the unnecessary things like the blasted factory mandates that you do. Thanks for you help - I really do appreciate it!!!

Pull the knob off, some units have a set screw that holds it inplace but most are just tight fit. May need to pry it off. The screw that holds the control in the front plate is under the knob. Take the back plate off which is just behind the control. label the wires as you remove them or unplug one wire and put it on the same plug on the new control.

    To get only the shaft you would need to find an otherwise bad control with a good knob and take the two appart and make one good one. Can't get just the shaft form any supplier I know..Sorry.

F15 and F63 errors? What does it means?


I am assuming its a bosch, F63 indicates a failure with the main control board can try to reset the machine but if it does not work you will need to replace the board. Try this:
Turn the knob to off and now shut the door. Turn the knob to the 6 o'clock position and wait for two seconds. Start/pause should flash. Now press and hold the spin button and turn the knob to 7 o'clock position. Release the button and turn the unit off. Did the fault erase? Try unit again.
If did not help you need to replace the main control board.
Again I don't know machine model but error 15 Fault: No pump out detected. Check pump outlet hose and sump/filter for blockages

How to replace the timer on a Kenmore 90 series washing machine?


The timer on a washing Kenmore washing machine is the brains of the unit. The timer controls how long the clothes are to be washed, rinsed, spun and dried. The timer is located behind the timer knob in the main control panel. If the timer fails, it can be replaced with just a few hand tools.
1 Unplug the washing machine's cord from the electrical outlet.
2 Remove the two screws securing the main-panel end caps with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Lift the main panel up and rotate it backward so the inside of the panel is exposed. If your model does not have end caps, slide a putty knife between the main panel and the washing machine's top, then pry up to free the panel from its retaining clips.
3 Turn the knob by hand from one side while looking at the back of the timer from the other side. You should see the timer knob's shaft turning. Grasp the black plastic locking tab in the center of the timer knob's shaft with a pair of needle-nose pliers and pull it out. You should feel a click.
4 Pull the timer knob off of its shaft. You may need to hold the locking tab with the pliers as you do this. Remove the trim plate from under the knob.
5 Unplug the wiring connector from the back of the timer. Remove the screws securing the timer to the main panel with a nut driver and remove the timer.
6 Install the new timer into the panel and secure it with the screws, using a nut driver. Install the timer's trim plate and wire connector.
7 Install the knob onto the timer's shaft. Make sure the locking tab is still pulled out before installing the knob. Once the knob is pushed onto the shaft, hold the knob with one hand while pushing the locking tab in from the other side. You should feel it click into position.
8 Reinstall the main panel and end caps, if applicable. Plug in the electrical cord and run the washer on various wash and rinse cycles to test that the timer is working.

Things You Will Need
  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Putty knife
  • Nut driver
  • Needle-nose pliers
  • Timer

Warning
  • Pulling or installing the timer knob without first pulling the locking tab can break the tab, the shaft or the knob.

Bosch f21 error code flashing


It normally indicates a fault with the motor or the main control board.
Turn the knob to off.
Close the door.
Turn the knob to 6 o'clock position.
Wait 2 seconds.
The start/pause should begin flashing.
Press and hold the spin button.
Turn the knob to 7 o'clock position.
Wait 2 seconds.
Release the button.
Turn the knob to off.
This should erase the error code and get you running again.
If the error code returns, you have a problem with the motor, wiring or main control.
If the machine won't go into diagnostics to erase the error code, it would suggest a faulty control board.
Try it several times to see if you get it reset.
If the start button doesn't flash, just carry on trying to erase the codes.
Hope this helps

F21 normally indicates a fault with the motor or the main control board. It could be the motor brushes need changing.
If you've changed the brushes you now need to erase the stored errors and try the machine again.

Turn the knob to off.
Close the door.
Turn the knob to 6 o'clock position.
Wait 2 seconds.
The start/pause should begin flashing.
Press and hold the spin button. (the spin button is the one that changes the spin speed, it may be marked "RPM")
Turn the knob to 7 o'clock position.
Wait 2 seconds.
Release the button.
Turn the knob to off.

Lights flashing under spin cycles , and programes will not operate


Either the motor or the main control board (could be both) has a serious problem.



However, it can also occur if there are spikes in the mains and it upsets the control board.



Try clearing the error code table and reset the control board.



Turn the knob to the off position.

Wait 2 seconds.

Turn the knob to the 6 o'clock position.

Wait till the start light flashes.

Wait 2 seconds.

Press and hold the spin button.

While holding it, turn the knob to the 7 o'clock position.

Release the spin button.
This should clear the error code table.

Turn the knob to off.

Turn on and try the machine again.

Try this a few times.

It should clear the fault code but if the control board or motor is still faulty, it will detect and show the code again.

GE WBVH6240FWW control dial broken-how to remove?


The control knob simply pulls off. I just looked at the other side of one..The knob connects to the main control board. To gain access you must remove the top of the washer. There will be screws at the rear of the machine to remove the top. Once removed, the control panel will be exposed for easy removal. Good Luck, Eric

How do I remove the selector knob on washer


The main selector control know spins off by turning the selector inner knob counterclockwise. The outer ring will then pull off. The other knobs are held on with friction and should just pull off.

The best way to get behind the front panel is by removing the top panel of the machine. There should be 2 gray/solver tabs at the back of the machine near the top if you remove the 2/4 screws from the top then the whole top panel will slide forward then lift off.

Be sure to unplug the machine first.

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.
