The repair was simply a matter of removing the old knob and old metal retention band and replacing it with the new one. A word of caution: the old knob retention band (a metal band usually firmly held within the plastic knob shaft) may remain on the shaft that protrudes from the machine. Mine was still there, was hard to see, and made me think the new knob would not fit and was the wrong part. I had to remove the old metal retainer first, then simply pressed the new knob onto the machine shaft for a perfect fit. The knob itself has a "D" shaped opening that matches the shaft and makes installation a snap.
