Unhappy Unable to remove GE timer knob
Model Number: WWSR3090T2WW   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years

Please make me smile!

The diagram shows a small clip behind the timer knob that holds the knob on. I do not see it. I do see the compression ring that holds the larger timer dial on but nothing behind the timer knob. Is this invisible or what ?

It's a thin plastic clip, just pull the knob away from the timer base and slide a thin screwdriver in to push it out.

Default simular promlem

i have what seems to be the same problem. The large ring broke so i removed evrything and then lost the plastic hair pin type cotter.
I ordered everything and got them 2 days later.
Thanks Sears
But here is the problem. When I put everything to gether and push in the inner knob that starts the cycle the large outer ring does not turn with it.
I have to moveit by keeping pressure on it and spining it seperately and then use the push in smaller knob to start the machine.
The washer I have is a GE
Model number WHDSR315D5WW
The parts I ordered are:
WH1X2117 SPRING CLIP
WHO2X10093 RING
WHO1X10061 KNOB ASSY CONTROL
WH11X10033 DIAL ASSY
ANY HELP OUT THERE.
I KNOW I CAN BEAT IT INTO SUBMISION WITH A 2 LB BALLPEEN HAMMER. i HAVE SEEN ME FIX THINGS WITH A HAMMER UNTIL I HAD TO BUY a NEW one.
But this ain't the army
and the wife has no sense of humor about some things

You have stripped teath on the timer shaft. You will need to take the timer apart to fix it. Also, make sure the teath on the knob are ok too. Unfortunately, they do not sell the shaft and the timer does not come apart.

Remove the timer knob, drill small holes in the stripped plastic shaft, and screw in two long, self tapping machine screws. Mark the shaft to locate it's position relative to the dial markings, Then just turn the shaft to set the cycle you want, and pull out the metal shaft to start the washer. Should work as long as you are carefull when you drill and tap.

Unhappy A truely pathetic design

I have one of these washers GE Model WHDSR315D5WW was used in outbuilding as a secondary washer washed less than a load a week. Thought it was a pretty good washer until the craptastic timer/washer select knob quite turning. Removed push/pull knob then the trim/select knob and found both are still in pretty good shape. Inspection found the cheap, poor quality, teeth on the timer assembly had turned to dust. It appears GE used the timer assembly (the expensive part) to protect the $7 knob. The plastic teeth do not fully engage and the timer is usually the first piece to go. It would have cost only a few pennies to make a proper design instead of this total crap situation. Basically it's made to fail and cost the customer lots of bucks for repair instead of just building a proper washer. I had a White/Westinghouse commercial in my house that just died after 27 years of nearly daily use. I was trying to use the GE until I could afford another washer. I'm out shopping now but it won't be a GE for sure.
