Knob broke off due to age

Looked up on the internet and found the part. The Kenmore washing mahine is 20 years old. I have never had any repairs. The part came in 3 days and I merely followed the old threads on the screw and it washing machine works now!
I'm 77.

Washer's timer knob (plastic) broke off

I looked up the part description on PartSelect. I did not find a match by Kenmore model number (I guess it is really old), so I searched by type of part (knob) and other parameters such as size. There were still a couple of hundred hits, but the very first page had the most relevant match, and the excellent graphics made it easy to see the part I wanted. I was a bit concerned that the original part was white plastic, whereas the replacement was black metal, but I went ahead and ordered anyway. I was a bit put off by the prce i.e. a simple knob costing $20+ is a bit of a rip off, but unfortunately, there is no alternative to find an exact replacement part (the alternative is to buy a new washer for $1000+).

Once I ordered, everything went very smoothly. The part arrived very prompty (I ordered on a Sat, and part arrived on Wed) and it took less than 5 minutes to unpack it and twist it on the washer. And now it works great! I am glad it is metal so won't break off (even though aesthetically, it is not as pretty, being black on a white washer).

Overall, excellent experience at PartSelect. They have a great selection of parts, detailed descriptions/graphics/reviews and excellent service.

The timer/wash select knob broke off in my hand

Went on line and did a search for Kenmore Washer Select Knobs through the Part Select website. The associated photo made it easy to match to my broken part. Ordered it and received it in 3 DAYS!!! Unwrapped the new part and screwed it on (the knob is threaded)- took longer to unwrap the part than to install it!!! I Love PartSelect.com!!! This was the 2nd time I have used them and will continue to rely on them whenever possible for my appliance repair needs!!!

Agitator noisy and not agitating wash

First I replaced the broken plastic control knob with the better die cast knob.
Pried the cap from the top of agitator assembly ..after first removing the softener dispenser.
Used socket with extender to remove visible retaining bolt. Pulled out plastic column and old dog bone ratchet assembly. Removed and replaced bottom spacer ( this had busted tabs and caused noise during agitation), greased all appropriate points with silicon grease..lithium would have been better...ordered wrong agitator so put old undamaged one back with new dogs which fit. Snugged down bolt..runs like new machine again.

Timer knob broke

I looked up the part number--within two days the new part came by FED-EX. I simply screwed the new part in place and BINGO--- saved a service call and washer is working fine.
