Question about Kenmore 24812
I loaded my washer and set it on the correct load size, washer temp. etc. Turned the control knob to start it. Pulled knob out and nothing happened. Knob feels loose when it is turning--almost like it is stripped. All the other setting knobs turn fine. There is power to the machine and the water hose is hooked up fine. Just did a load yesterday and it worked fine. Help please!
The knob is a simple screw on knob and the replacement part number is 3353309. Cost is 16.50. It will have a metal back as opposed to the plastic one you must have now. Shipping would Should you choose to order, follow this link:

If the washer does not shut off when filling, the pressure switch is usually the culprit. The following link explains:
In many cases, the only problem is the air hose comes loose from the switch, or is cracked or punctured somewhere. If the air hose is intact, and the electrical connections are good (no broken, loose, or corroded wires), then I would recommend replacing the switch. The part is available at searspartsdirect.com. Just go to the website and type in the model number you have provided and go to the "Washer/Dryer Control Panel" heading for itme number 13 (part #3952465). I hope this helps you. Please let me know if you require additional assistance.

Something in the timer came apart. Timer needs replaced. When in good working order, the timer should ONLY ever be turned clockwise..Reversing this could break it.
