Some cycle selector dial plates are glued onto the knob. Probably the glue has failed.

SOURCE: Speed queen top load washer does not agitate properly

you need to see if the motor turns one direction during wash and the other during the spin. If so, your gearbox is faulty and needs replacement. If motor only goes in one direction at all times, then very possible, the timer is faulty.

SOURCE: how do I replace broken washer cycle selector knob

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
These knobs are normally the pull off type so all you have to do is get a small flat tip screw driver behind the knob and gently pry it out to get it started then it should slide off
However if you are needing to replace the entire part then the top back section of the machine may need to come off it may even have some screws behind the white side plates that allow to be removed and the top part folds up and back allowing you to axcess the part ok this part is usually held on by 2 or 3 screws

My speed queen washer wont fill all the way up on extra large setting. How can I adjust the water level switch so that it will fill up to the top? My model is Awn542


This is mentioned in the manual-the federal gov't has required manufacturers to set water levels lower to conserve water. You can fill it more by holding the load size level to reset until it has the amount you want.

Washing machine goes thru the wash cycle then it stops, if I lift the door it starts again ,than stops. lift the door it starts than stops


It could be your out of balance switch is getting tripped before you try it again put in the spin cyc and see if it spins and drains the water if it does a odd sized load could be causing the failure.

WHDSR209DWW on/off button will not engage to spin the cycle selector dial


The cycle selector is not engaged onto the timer shaft. Need to remove the on/off knob by removing the plastic "U" clip. Remove the cycle selctor knob and check that the steel spring clip on the selector is fully seated. Re-install the cycle selector onto the timer shaft aligning the selector key with the with tthe notch on the timer shaft. Re-install the on/off knob.

The cycle selector and on/off combination is a poor design. Users press the on/off knob in and turn clockwise to set the wash cycle. If you're not gentle this action wears the teeth on the timer shaft and the user has to press harder and harder to set the wash cycle. This pressing causes the cycle selector to be pushed off the timer shaft and you can no longer operate the machine.

VERY IMPORTANT:
Stop using the on/off knob to set the wash cycle. Press on the cycle selector to set the wash cycle. Use the on/off knob only for starting or stopping the machine. Don't press or pull too hard on the on/off knob or you will wind up pushing the cycle selector off the timer shaft.

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


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.

Its sounds like you need a replacement knob, if you can turn the disc behind it to start a cycle and the machine times out find the timer is probably still good, do a Google search for Speed Queen parts, and buy the correct replacement knob.
