I have a hotpoint Aquarius 1000 Washer/Dryer model number wd23w had it about 15 i used the dryer for first time and now everytime i put on a wash as soon as it is finished it goes straight on to dryer

you will prob find the knob for the dryer has broken
so you turn the knob but it doesn't turn the switch
remove the knob which just pushes on and pulls off
and look at the shaft of the knob you may see it has cracked
if you do just replace the knob and you should be fine

How do I take the knobs off a hotpoint stove

I wrap a thin cotton cloth (like a handkerchief) fully around the underside of knob. Gather the cloth above the knob. Then pull firmly on the cloth. The knob, prviding it is not glued on, should come off

I have to replace the timer knob on my whirlpool LTE5243DQ3 combination washer and dryer,but I cannot remove the old one

oh boy these are varied in the way to remove them, but usually under the knob is a pin, or screw and in some cases a u shaped plastic pc that locks timer to knob shaft? in some cases on the back side the shaft has to be pulled up then remove the locking pin or u shape piece to release it and wow it comes off

Hotpoint TVM572 timer is faulty

It is important not to open the door of the dryer if it is still running. The timer controls the cooling cycle otherwise the clothes will get damaged if kept on hot.

It is very likely the timer contacts are frozen at some point and the timer will need some attention.

It is not hard to locate it. I cannot find the actual parts drawing for your model (it is good you have provided the full model details). But to help you locate the part I have found another Hotpoint model that may be similar to yours. Check this drawing to see if the front panel is similar.
Item 100 is the timer.

The actual timer for your model looks like this.

As the clothes are not getting burnt or singed I will assume the thermostat is ok and keeping the temperature within the range.

Whirpool WED5820SWO after two or three loads of running fine, the dryer will not start when the button is pushed until you jiggle the timer knob and sometimes the dryer will start in Timed dry and then...

If you're going to purchase parts for your appliance you are going to need to know the correct part number to ensure you get the right part. The part number for a new timer for the model number you provided is 8566184. It can be found on line at for about $55. You can also try the following appliance parts websites:

Some of these sites also have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you in locating the parts you need. Your timer is listed under the "Top and Console Parts" heading as item 21.

To replace, make sure your dryer is unplugged. Remove the back panel of the operator console and the timer knob. Either use a digital camera or write down the correct location of all the wires. They are are color-coded and marked on the timer, but some replacement parts can differ slightly in design. HINT: An easy method is to remove the screw(s) that hold the old timer in place and allow it to hang. Then, swap wires one at a time from the old timer to the new one.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS Your model number is actually "WED5820SW0". The last digit is a "zero" vice the letter "O".

Turned knob and got a buzz. turned knob again and no sound. Just finished a load and was starting on the next.

Hi. im assuming the buzz came from the timer knob(behind the knob). if so, this will confirm timer failure and, you will need to replace this timer control module in order to restore proper function to your unit.

If the buzz was located behind the start switch, replace as well.

Dryer just stopped working. Turned knob to desired time and pushed start, nothing happens. When knob is on OFF position and I push the start button, it makes the regular BUZZ sound - times up, clothes...

Remove and inspect the timer knob for a crack or missing tension clamp.
Carefully place it back on the timer shaft while paying attention to the (D) shape in the knob and the shaft.
If they are aligned correctly notice where the position arrow is pointing, ie; off---run--etc.
You may well need a new knob.
