Yeah, these are great when they work but often difficult to fix. Sounds like you may have a systemic problem, so replacing with a basic washer with no electronics is probably a good idea.

If the stem is broken at all you will probably have to replace the switch. This is done by opening up the console.

This does certainly sound like the timer, and you really cannot test it effectively. Go ahead and replace it, and if you buy the part from this site you can return it if it does not fix the problem.

Check and make sure you didn't break part of the stem, that almost always happens in this situation. If so you will need to replace the switch. It should then just press on.

I don't think the knob is the problem, if it were it would just spin. I think something is jammed with the water level switch and that means buying a new one.
