Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

The knob on my kenmore elite won't move the timer.

The knob on my Kenmore Elite (Model 110.23014100) won't move the timer. If I push it in to move the timer it just spins freely. I can pull it out and the washer will start but I need to be able to move it to a different cycle. Does this mean that I need to replace the timer or possible just the knob or something in the knob assembly.

The knob itself turns the switch on . The skirt move the timer position. Try turning the skirt. You probably have a broken knob. On these the knob is held in place with a plastic rod inserted into it all the way. This spreads the tip and retains the knob. To get the knob off to yank out the skirt for a look see you need to pull that rod out a tad to release the knob. The knob on my kenmore elite won't move the timer. - 88be11a.jpgThat shaft has a rounded end on it that spreads out and locks the knob on. Clever ain't it? These timers are cheaply made, if you cannot find fault with the knob or the skirt then you is gonna need a timer.

Could be one of two things. The knob or the timer. Both knobs and the timer through sears parts direct are under 100 probably with shipping. If the knob that you pull out and push in does not feel sloppy when you turn it then i would guess timer is faulty.

Timer knob spins freely


check the back of your knob to see if there is a crack. where the shaft of the timer goes if so call the parts store and order a new knob. Will need your model number when you call them. If its not the knob then its your timer.

The timer knob spins freely and I can't start the machine or set the timer.


"Can I replace it with a new knob or do I have to buy a new timer?"

It sounds like the knob is rounded out where it fits on the timer post, or It may just be loose. Pull the knob off and inspect it. If damaged, yes, you can buy another one.

Kenmore Series 80 Washer timer knob spins


Something in the timer came apart. Timer needs replaced. When in good working order, the timer should ONLY ever be turned clockwise..Reversing this could break it.
