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:
I unplugged the washer from the electrical outlet. I then removed the drain hose from the wall drain to allow me to turn the washer to gain access to the the back panel. From the front, I then removed the plastic timer knob from the timer by unscrewing it. Then I pulled the plastic plate with the arrow on it to remove it. This exposed the screws that attached the timer to the control panel. I left them attached. I then removed the two screws on the bottom of the front of the control panel (on each end) that attach the control panel to the washer.I then went to the rear of the washer and removed the two screws on the top of the rear of the control panel. I went back to the front and pulled the control panel forward and up to release it from the washer. I then removed the two screws (that were under the plastic plate) that attached the timer to the panel and removed the timer from the panel.Then I unplugged the wiring harness from the timer and removed the timer completely. From there I reversed the procedure to install the new timer and knob.

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.
un-screw old knob with pliers. Hand spin on the new one. Your PartSelect. Is the BEST!!! I ordered on-line Sunday night.Got the part Wedesday!! FAST!!!!!!!
Removed remaining plastic piece of old broken knob by turning counter clockwise. Screwed on replacement knob by turning clockwise. Replacement knob is made of metal and I do not expect it to ever break. Soooo easy! Fast service and shipping!
Screwed in metal replacement knob. It fit perfectly.
Used pliers to take remaining broken plastic from post then screwed on new knob in 10 seconds. Easy as can be! I also loved the fact the new knob was made from metal where it threaded on instead of plastic like the original knob.
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!
I used a pliers to remove the broken remains of the original knob. The new knob screwed on until it stopped. Good as new!
I simply took the knob out of it's packaging and screwed it on!
I unscrewed the broken stem from the threaded timer stem; I was able to unscrew it with my fingers but could have used needle-nosed pliers. Once I removed the broken stem, I screwed the replacement timer knob into place. Total time for the repair was less than one minute and the replacement knob worked perfectly.
All I had to do was screw the new knob on. so easy!!!!!!
new knob is made of metal and the old one was made of plastic. i doubt the new one will break
i just popped on the knob and voila good as new
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
