Kitchenaid top load washer

When I pull out the start knob, the water will not turn on unless I am pushing in the disc around the knob. Is this some kind of short or is there a bad connection?

Could be either take out the two screws at the base of the control panel and raise it up after you back the screws out pull the panel forward then lift it up its on hinges check all the connectors next you will see a black plastic piece in the center of the timer pry it loose with a small screw driver till it extends but is not all the way off this will release the control knob make sure the inner ring is on the shaft properly then posh the knob on tight and push the plastic tab back in if that doesn't fix it replace the timer

Older style kenmore top load washer wont do anything....


This machine has an on/off switch built into the timer that is activated when you push/pull the knob.
Either something therein is worn or broken causing this switch to not function. I myself could probably fix this problem and have done so on occasion, but an inexperienced person might find it to be a challenge.
Replacing this timer is expensive unless you can find a used part somewhere.

Check for voltage at the water inlet valve with the timer dial pushed in or in an off position. If no voltage replace the water valve. If you do have voltage you'll have to trace the circuits back from the water valve to the line. One point of demarcation is the water level switch. Pull the violet colored wire and see if it still fills while off. If it does it's likely the timer's bad.
