SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Broken selector switch

TURN OFF CIRCUIT BREAKER. Lift out cooktop, remove all machine screws holding the glass frame. Remove plastic knobs and lift glass top straight up. Make sure rubber gromits are not ripped or torn. Unscrew the small screws on the selector switch and then lift up and tilt over the small aluminum chasis holding the switches to expose the wiring connections. Pull off the wires and pull out the defective switch. Replacre switch, connect wires, re-seat switch chasis, and secure switch with screws. Carefully drop in the glasstop lining up the switch shafts and the rubber grommets. Secure the top with machine screws and drop back in the cutout.

SOURCE: how do I replace broken washer cycle selector knob

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
These knobs are normally the pull off type so all you have to do is get a small flat tip screw driver behind the knob and gently pry it out to get it started then it should slide off
However if you are needing to replace the entire part then the top back section of the machine may need to come off it may even have some screws behind the white side plates that allow to be removed and the top part folds up and back allowing you to axcess the part ok this part is usually held on by 2 or 3 screws

The program selector knob turns without resistance. How do I remove it to see if it's the knob or the shaft that's broken?


If no set screw on knob just pull it off. If shaft turns freely then the problem lies with the switch and it needs to be replaced.

The selector switch may not be getting activated by the switch knob. This could be because they are not aligned properly or because the plastic ribs on the knob are broken.

This will usually result in the switch knob being much harder or much easier to move than normal.

Sounds like the selector switch has gone bad. The machine is not fully cycling thru and draining because the selector isn't proceeding like it should.
This typically happens if the selector dial is spun real hard repeatedly over time. The little cogs inside of the selector will get broken and sometimes the broken parts will lodge inside the switch and cause jams.

Bottom oven element stays hot will not cut off


In order for the element to stay on, the oven switch must be broken. No details are provided, but if your oven is like most, you have an Oven Selector knob for ~bake, broil, clean and another knob for Temperature selection.

Look at your Oven Selector knob closely to make sure it is not slipping on the shaft. It may be as simple as the knob being broken, and even though you are turning it to the Off position, the switch may still be on. If the knob is indeed turning the switch shaft, then it is most likely the switch stuck in the own position. Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi. your problem is actually a rather complicated one.

Timer and selector switches The timer switch is usually the largest dial on the main control panel. It can be either a mechanical device much like a simple clock, or completely electronic with just a digital readout.

The timer runs the washing machine in a pre-determined pattern. It provides the electricity to all of the washing machine components at the correct time and for the correct length of time.

The Start switch is usually part of the timer knob. When you set the timer to the proper cycle, you either pull or push the timer knob to start the cycle.

The selector switches or knobs vary from machine to machine. Most washing machines have one or several switches or knobs on the control panel besides the Timer/Start switch. These let you adjust certain settings; for example, the water temperature, spin speed, timer cycle, and so on. Normally, the washing machine completes the cycle selected on the timer, regardless of how you set these switches and knobs.

The program selector knob seems to be set wrong. When the arrow is pointing to off, we are able to turn it on.


Take the knob off. Re -position it with the flat side of the knob on the flat side of the shaft of the timer
If that does not work, replace the knob because it is broken inside.

Dryer knob sticks in one spot- won't move


 Door switch / Door switch actuator leverThe dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.
