    I am fixing to replace the timer knob on my friends front loader.The white part of the knob has broken off and will come off in their hand and the black part that was attached to the white part is still inside the timer knob hole attached to the timer shaft. They can still use the washer by pulling out on the black part with needle nose pliers,then sticking the white knob back into the hole and ,then turning the timer where it needs to be for the cycle to start,then it runs through the entire cycle fine.I have read where it says just turn the black part to the left(counterclockwise) to unscrew it and then just put the new knob in and screw it on to the right(clockwise) until snug,but when i look in there now(before i start this little 2-3 minute job),there seems to be a nut maybe that holds the black part onto the timer shaft? Does this make sense? Am i looking at this wrong? The nut looking thing seems to be larger than the hole in the black part with the little fingers on it? Is this a nut,or is it part of the shaft(all one piece)?
    For model number FWT445GES1
    Hi Stevie, Thank you for contacting us. It sounds like you have a good understanding of how this part is installed. We also have a customer who wrote in with how this part is installed: "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.". The part is not a nut really, it is just screwed on to the shaft of your timer. All you have to do is unscrew it to remove it. Good luck with your repair.

    Where can I find the video or detailed instructions how to install Partselect number ps417830?
    Hi Andrey, Thank you for the question. We do not offer a video as of yet for this knob. Here is what a previous customer posted on how they installed the part. "1 - Removed the remaining part of the old knob assembly by grabbing the thin rim with needle nose 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.". The part is not a nut really, it is just screwed on to the shaft of your timer. All you have to do is unscrew it to remove it. Good luck with your repair.

      The Pull knob for the washer timer "pulled" off. Needed to replace the knob.
      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.

      Old knob assembly broken.
      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.

      Knob came off in my wife's hand when starting a load
      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.

      Washer timer knob retainer teeth were gone. Dryer knob broken
      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.

      The knob stayed in my hand when I pulled it to start the washer.
      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.

      Broken knob
      Once I opened the knob by rotating the old one counter-clockwise, changing is as simple as screwing the new one in.

      Timer assembly broken, could not turn on washer
      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.

      Timer Knob Broke Off
      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.
