I was doing my laundry and when I went to turn the knob ot start the next load the knob just broke off in my hand - the machine is 15 years old and I've only needed to do one other small repair so all-in-all I can't complain but what a pain when you're in the middle of doing multiple loads. I found the part on the "official" site but it was costly and we probably wouldn't get it quickly - other option was to pick it up at a store about 2 hours away - with gas prices that wasn't an option.

Found Part Select - found the part - ordered (for about $5 less) - got it a couple of days later - twisted it on the threaded part and the washer was working within 30 seconds.

I would highly recommend Part Select and will use them for all my parts needs.
