How do I set the dials on husqvarna viking 6000 sewing machine

The "dial" in the back is for decorative stitches which require a "programmer" to be inserted with the stitch formation you want to form. For a straight stitch no cam is required in the back of the machine. The three dials on the front:

Upper Left: Stitch selector
Upper Right: Stitch lenght
Lower: Stitch width

Using the upper left dial select the straight stitch picture
Using the upper right, choose your stitch lenght
Using the lower, choose your needle position, left/center/right

Cannot snap decorative stitch cam back in

What model machine are you using? If it is one of the 2000 series machines (might be labelled 6430 or something else but starting with 6000), from memory you need to align the knobs on the front to the "dot" before you remove or insert a new cam.

Bernina 730 cam gear replacement and alignment

It does not matter where the position of the camstack is when you put it in, it should not affect any other part of the machine.

For some reason the needle wants to wander from side to side. Even on the straight stitch, nothing seems to hold the needle straight.

The selector finger that runs on the camstack may be between the straight stitch and the zig cam, you need a shop adjustment

Viking sewing machine model 6430 will only sew backwards

Th cam stack gears have gummed up on you you can try getting the back cover off along with the side and soaking the machine down with wd-40 and running it while forcing the reverse button in and out if it breaks free try and soak up as much of the wd-40 as you can and then oil anything that moves. I know this may be discouraging but viking no longer supports this machine and you might be better off taking it to an older viking dealer for help.

Replacing the cam-stack in my Viking 6440

The cam stack can come out quite easily but putting it back in has some danger to it. The screw that holds the mechanism guide pin is somewhat tricky to get back in and if you cross the threads you've ruined your machine because the part is no longer available that the srew goes through. If you cross the threads it pitches the guide and your dial on the front of the machine that selects the different stitches won't work. If you shine a light in the back of the machine you can see it the camstack is cracked.
