Question about Electric Intermatic Inc Wh40 Water Heater Timer Single
The WH40 on-off switch is a manual override. Using the switch, you can turn power on when timer has power turned off. However the manual override is also the piece that the timer pins contact to mechanically click power on-and-off.
So if the on-off switch is broken, the timer will not work. Looking at the Wh40 sitting in my office, I cannot see the exact part you mention, but it looks like the on-off-switch is not a repairable part. And it would not be easy to work on, since the yellow timer dial does not come off.
You can buy a new WH40 and then swap out the insides. Keep the same box and just snap in the new timer. However the new WH40 on-off switch sticks out so you may have to leave door open on the old box.
Here is a photo comparing old and new WH40:
