This is an improved white timer knob with metal threads.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
The repair was very easy. The original dial was a poor design and did not hold up to the twisting and finally let loose. The threaded bottom of the dial stayed on the threaded shaft, so it was a simple matter of grabbing it with nose pliers and spinning off. Glue does not work with this type of plastic, I tried instant glue and hot glue. The replacement part was re-designed with a metal threaded center, so when it arrived in the mail, 3 days after online ordering, I spun it onto the shaft and job was complete. While I waited for the new part to arrive, I threaded 2 nuts onto the shaft and tightened them to each other to give me a temporary 'knob' that I could grab with my nose pliers.

Screwed in metal replacement knob. It fit perfectly.
Received the new knob and screwed it on. The new knob is metal inside instead of plastic like the old one. It fit perfectly and I couldn't be happier. Also - I ordered the knob and it came in 2 days. Very effecient service.
Ordered part and within 2 days it arrived. Removed broken knob and twisted new one on. Awesome job getting the part to me so fast. Thank you!
new knob is made of metal and the old one was made of plastic. i doubt the new one will break
Removed the half of the plastic threaded knob with a regular pair of pliers. Just screwed the new knob on.Which by the way is all metal threads so this problem has gone away
I removed the old piece and replaced it with the new one. It was the easiest repair I've ever done. The website was super helpful with diagrams and tips and made the experience of buying the part as easy as repairing it!!!!
As simple as opening the mailer, walking to the machine and screwing the new knob on. Original know had plastic threads, whereas the PartSelect replacement has metal threads. Fair and reasonable price, simple - no hassle ordering process, prompt quick delivery and my wife is a very happy person again!
The new replacement part arrived in a few days. It was very easy to replace the timer knob. The photo on the website with the scales behind the product assured me I had the right part.
the timer knob shaft must be held in place from spinning while the knob hub is removed, simply grasp the shaft with needle nose pliers below whats left of the hub and with another pair of pliers grasp what is left of the knob hub and rotate counter clockwise, once it is broken free it should spin right off. Reverse this process to install the new timer knob. Installing the lid bumper is simple just pull out the old bumper with needle nose pliers and start the new bumper in from the bottom of the lid and work bumper until the bumper clears the hole in the lid, you may need a small flat screwdriver to work it in gently as not damage the finnish or the bumper when you clear the thicker part of the bumper flange it will lock right into the lid.
I applied liquid nail to the bck of the knob,screwed it on, and left it untouched for 24 hours. Now, it works perfectly.
I made sure timer knob was pushed in. I removed old timer knob and noticed a piece of it was still attached. I removed the old plastic piece and screwed in the new knob. Job was quick and easy
Installed new timer knob on timer shaft and it worked as expected.
