I have a frigidaire gallery front load washer that won't start a regular wash cycle.When i select a regular cycle and pull up the start knob,the cycle light comes on and nothing happens.When i mov


Good Afternoon Leszek - Thank you for your question. Based on the symptoms you are describing it sounds like the unit has a faulty timer or a potential wiring failure. Try reprogramming the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit. If issue persists, then at this point I strongly suggest reaching out to a professional that can accurately diagnose and repair the washer.

The knob is not working. It just turns without starting the washer. I have to press down hard to get the knob to turn to the cycle I want. Is there a way to fix this? GE Top Loader WHDSR109J


This is a common failure. The teeth on the knob have worn off. If you pull the knob out you will see a small clip that can be pulled off this will release the knob. Usually both pieces of the knob need to be replaced. For diagrams and illustrations enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com

Washer Knob broke


You can use the knob to turn the washer to the correct cycle, and then use a pair of long nose pliers to gently pull the center hub out to start the washer. This is of course only a work around. I'll post more if I figure out how to fix this as well.

Cycle control GE WHDSR315 top loading washer.


Try pulling the knobs off completely and squirting WD-40 into the switch interior--work the oil in by reinstalling the knobs and moving them around. If no help, then the area behind the control panel must be accessed (pull the power plug), and the control replaced (you should have seen the mounting screws when the knobs were off).

Broken knob on GE washer


There are four separate parts that make up the knob dial. You can pull off the knob if you use a screwdriver/pliers to remove the clip holding it on. Check if the mounting areas appear stripped or broken. There should also be a compression ring in the mounting hole on the back of the knob. That's what may be broken or stripped. These are all parts that you can get from a local parts store (check the phone book) and you can do it yourself. Any of those parts should cost less than $10. The bad news is if you stripped the pole coming out of the timer assembly. You would need to replace the entire assembly which costs about $130. If you call a GE repairman, you are looking at $89.95 or more just to have them show up. If it is still under warranty, there is no charge. You can call them to verify this:

Timer replacement


the knob, actually, unscrews. pull out the knob as if you are starting a wash cycle, and use needle-nose pliers to hold the back, and unscrew. i learned the hard way when i pulled on it like it was one of the other knobs and yanked the post out.

Speed Queen HD comercial washer


Its sounds like you need a replacement knob, if you can turn the disc behind it to start a cycle and the machine times out find the timer is probably still good, do a Google search for Speed Queen parts, and buy the correct replacement knob.

Washer knob continues to click through cycles


Anything on your machine can cause this. The most common things are brushes in the motor , blocked / damaged pump, or control module. There are too many possibilities to go through, but check pump and motor first
