The clip pulls straight up off the shaft directly behind the knob. You can use a small screwdriver or a pair of needlenose pliers to pull it out. Once the clip is removed the knob will slide off the timer shaft.

There should be a spring clip that holds the timer knob on. It or the timer knob may need replaced. Here is a picture of the timer knob and the spring clip. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

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.

Timer switch on GE washer


You don't state your exact model number, and the number off the timer is not the actual part number (it's some sort of part stamping number). Most likely what has happened is a plastic tab on the timer housing (which normally goes into a slot in the metal, and thus holds the timer at that point) has broken off. The fix is to replace the timer, but instead of buying a new timer, I usually fashion a Z type piece of metal which I can put one screw though into the metal and the other side holding the timer against the metal. Takes a little work, but it's a lot cheaper than a new timer.
If you want to take the timer knob off, you have to pull it out and use a thin tool, like a small screwdriver, to push the plastic clip off the shaft behind the knob, allowing the knob to then come off the shaft. Push the clip back on the knob when off, so that all you have to do to reinstall the knob is push it on and it will lock on the shaft again.

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.

Ge timer on washer is broken


If it no longer clicks, the timer assembly will need to be replaced. If just the knob broke off, the timer should be good.

RRemoving the washer starter dial


Yes, stop pulling on it. Axcess the rear of the timer there will be a smaller hole with a black piece of plastic inside where the knob shaft would be if it went all the way through. use needle nose pliers to grab the plastic piece and pull out. it is easier if the knob is pushed in is gets recessed a little more when you pull out the knob. The new timer comes with a new plastic piec pull it out then push back in to lock on the knob again.
