This was super easy. If you can screw and unscrew a nut from a bolt, its that easy. The Knob assembaly comes as a whole. So once you remove the old knob (unscrew to the Left). Then replace the new knob assy (screw to the Right) till its a snug fit. As you will see this knob is designed to be a clockwise rotation only - normal operation - sort of a self tightening screw.

1 - Removed the remaining part of the old knob assembly by grabbing the thin rim with needlenose pliers and twisting to rotate counterclockwise.2 - Placed new assembly in place and hand tightened in clockwise direction. The selector only moves clockwise, so it isn't necessary to use tools to tighten the assembly.
It took a few minutes on inspection to figure out I needed some bent-nose pliers to grip the inner black plastic knob and unscrew it from the threaded spindle.Once that was done, it was s simple matter of spinning on the new on.I must say, the brittle litle plastic fingers that hold this knob together have to be the most poorly designed piece of crap I've ever seen. Who ever designed and then approved this design should be sent flogged. It's a lousy as a PEZ dispenser.
The dryer knob was broken two years ago, and I couldn't find a replacement until the washer timer knob broke. On your site I found both easily with the photos and measurements. The ordered knobs were exactly right. Just pushed on the dryer knob and screwed on the washer knob. Perfect solution. Thanks for being there.
Removed the remaining assembly and popped in the new one. Took less than a minute.
Once I opened the knob by rotating the old one counter-clockwise, changing is as simple as screwing the new one in.
First the part arrived withing 2 days! I used pliers to pull the old knob assembly (minus the knob which had broken off) left in there. I inserted the new one and turned it and voila! Less than 3 minutes. My washer can be used again. And, as I am an old lady with arthritic fingers and could do this so fast, anyone can do it.
simply grasped the remaining segment of the switch with the pilers and turned it counter clockwise and once removed threaded the new one on.
No tools necessary. Simply turn old knob to the left or counter clockwise and it will disengage. Slip on the new part and turn to right or clockwise until it is tight. 2 minute project.
I didn't know how to get the part still in the washer slot from which the timer knob broke off. Thanks to other people documenting on how to do it, I was able to use pliers to unscrew the anchor part and easily replace it following their directions. Took less than 2 minutes.
Thanks to a previous comment on this page, I simply unscrewed the remaining part of the old knob and screwed on the new one. Simplest repair ever!
Unscrewed the broken piece, screwed in the new part. Done!
If you can flush a toilet, you can do this; really! Unscrew the outer shell and screw in the new one. I used a pair of pliers for the removal but the new part just screwed on. This is a "honey-do" that I'd gladly do again...just hope I don't have to for a few more years!
Used pliers to grab the bolt and turned left to remove piece. Screwed on new piece to the right without pliers - THAT SIMPLE!!!!I
Unscrewed the old one - screwed on the new one. Easiest repair ever
