It couldn't be easier. I removed the old knob and stuck the new one on the shaft. Perfection in less than 15 seconds!

I am thankful that PartsSelect had this replacement knob. I tried repairing the old one, first with super glue and finally with heat-shrink tubing. Both worked for a while, but eventually the knob epanded enough to not turn the shaft.
