Default Can't remove the Washer/TImer Dial
Model Number: WSM2420SAW   Brand: Hotpoint   Age: More than 10 years

This could be more of a generic question that pertains to a lot of washers and their timer/wash cycle dial on the front of the washing machine.

I happen to have a Hotpoint/GE "Spacemaker" dryer over washer combo.

How do I remove the Dial -- Washer Timer dial that sets the cycles for washing, etc. All the other dials on the front of the washer pull off. The timer dial does not and I don't see a set screw holding it on. On a schematic I saw the parts blow up doesn’t show any set screw or retaining clip.

I do see what looks like it might be a "C" clip right behind the dial but when I try prying it off I see just enough of it that looks like a black plastic washer. It’s smooth on the back side. The side facing the knob assembly however has teeth. That makes sense since when you push the knob in it would engage those teeth so you can set the cycle you want and when you pull the knob out, the washer begins to operate.

Sooooo….that black washer-like thing right behind the knob that has teeth as part of it can’t be the “C” clip others talk about that needs to be pried off so the knob can be removed. If that’s so, what’s holding the knob on??

There’s only about a ¼ inch of space between the knob and the face of the control panel cover. Until I get that knob off, I can’t access a bad lid switch which is behind the control panel cover and which I believe is stopping the washer from going into the spin/emptying mode.

Any thoughts on getting that knob off?

Thanks!

Jerry

Default removing dial

Try turning dial stem counter-clockwise. The top cover part of my dial broke off. Washer still works, so I'm online to find the part.

So I'm not sure you can get to the stem. The wording on the dial plate is still on the washer, I just have the black plastic knob part. In two pieces.
You may have fixed it by now. Hopefully.
