SOURCE: how does the timer knob come off
Push the knob to the off position then spin it to the left. it should just screw off. There is only one or two models that dont. To acces the timer you have to take the 2 screws out of the corners of the control panel (philips) They are either on the front or the back of the machine, left and right corners. The whole control panel will pull forward and then lift up and flip back. Theres the timer. Any more questions let me know.

most likely cuase would be the inlet valve
you would need the complete model number to make sure you get the right part for that unit.

You have a broken point inside the timer. I hate to say that there is no cheap solution. You will have to replace the timer. There is no rebuild kit or anything like that to repair the timer. I know of two suppliers where you can buy a replacement. I use these sometimes when I regular supplier hasn't got a part in stock. I checked the price at both for you and found the best price at www.appliancepartspro.com . their cost if $123.08 plus shipping. They ship same day if before 4:ooPM. Their Part Number: AP3020181 . When you go to their site enter either your model number or this part number. If you enter you model #, scroll down until you find the timer, Th part # will take you straight to it. I sure hope this helps.

SOURCE: removeing timer switch knob
This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
See the following for how to release the console:
Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers:
If this is a basic top load, direct drive washer, these units may have one of two different timers. (See the Whirlpool PDF).
On models with a metal timer, you have to release the console, pull it forward and tilt it back in order to get to the back of the timer.
The knob screws onto a medal shaft that goes through the timer.
Usually, trying to un-screw the knob won't work by itself since the shaft will also turn.
I found that if you hold the back of the shaft with a thin needle-nosed pliers, you can unscrew the knob.
Then you simply have to disconnect the timer.
The Whirlpool PDF also has troubleshooting and testing procedures for the timer.
