Hi,

I got the knob off, but I don't see any teeth.  I do have an additional bit of info now though.  When I manually spin the pointer dial, it turns the rod that the knob was on with it.  But when I turn the rod that the knob was on, it doesn't turn the pointer dial (except a little bit occasionally).  Do I need to remove the pointer dial to see more? (I couldn't figure out how and didn't want to force it)

But the rod doesn't spin the indicator dial even without the knob on it?  It looks like the knob only is a control for the rod...

Would it help if I posted pictures and/or video (just to make clear what I'm saying, in case it's ambiguous, and to help figure out what "style" of knob assembly it is)

Did you ever solve this probelm? I seem to have the same with my Whirlpool washer. The timer assembly was replaced a few years back and I can't belierve it is the same issue.

Hi luv2camp,

It would be best if you started a new topic in the Whirlpool Appliance Repair board.

Please be sure to include the model number of your washer along with a description of the problem you are having with the washer.

Thanks,
Hope you find our website helpful.
