Broken Timer Control Knob

(1/1)

Hi;

The timer control knob on our Frigidaire front loader has broken.  I have purchased a replacement knob assembly but it's not obvious from the parts diagram how things go together.

I haven't popped the top to check things out yet.  Any advice or suggestions before I do?

Thanks.

Model FWT645RHS1

I think their is a rod you pull out on the rear of the timer and then place the knob on there and shove the rod back in.

Hi;

It turns out the knob is just threaded on.  I found a post at another site (sorry AJ) that explained that the part of the knob left on the machine could be grasped with a pair of pliers and rotated.  That loosened it and it just spun off.  The replacement knob was then threaded back on until it was tight and voila!

Thanks all.
