How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer

On my Whirlpool Thin Twin the water temperature selection knob is broken off. I think to replace it the front control panel must be removed. To remove the front control panel, the washing machine cycle selector/start/off knob must be removed. The Dryer knobs simply pull off. However, the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob doesn't seem to be a pull of knob. How can I remove this large knob so the panel can be removed and I can replace the water temperature selector mechanism, the shaft of which is broken off?

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.

I need to replace lid switch on Whirlpool Thin Twin washer/dryer unit. How do I get the switch out and the new one in

The 3 screws across the front of the slanted panel need to be removed, then the panel. At the left and right rear of the main washer top are 2 5/16" screws, these need to be removed, there is a loose fitting steel clip through a slot on the main top these are holding down, when the 5/16" screws are removed slide the entire top forward and it will release from the front fixed clips. Unplug the lid switch unit and the main top can be set aside to replace the switch. Pleazer Appliance...

I have a whielpool large capacity thin twin W/D LTE6234AN3 It will not spin or drain

Possible that program is not advancing forward and so can be the controller unit if there is the same response with all the programs. However it is best to remove and check connections to the controller panel and the water level sensor.

I have a thin twin #LTE6234D that squeals when it starts. I need to know how to replace the belts that are slipping.

Which unit squeals when you start it, washer or dryer? Washer is direct drive and this noise would be from the pump area. Dryer could be Idler pulley or rear roller issue. If the belt is the issue, the front of the dryer would need to be removed in order to replace the belt, control panel needs to be removed first the disconnect the door switch. Remove the 5 screws to the front panel and replace the belt. But I would think its a idler or roller issue first over just a belt.
Good Luck

It's heavy duty thin twin model. The cycle stops at spin and water stays in the mashine.

When it gets to the SPIN cycle,wait 45 seconds. If it does not spin,open then close the lid.
If it spins then,replace the timer.
If it does not spin,replace the lid switch.
