Frigidaire washer Knob
Posted 29 September 2005 - 11:45 AM
The main control knob broke. I reseached and found this part which I bought.
It arrived today. It matches the original. I just can't figure out how to install it... Does it press on? Or, do I have to do something with the metal band around the plastic sleeve on the knob?

Do you have the old knob off? If so the new one should just press straight down and on. It will take a little pressure to get it to snap down over the nub on the end of the timer shaft that holds it on. Make sure the metel clip that came with the new knob is on the knob as in this picture or the knob will not stay on.

The old knob is off and all remnants removed from the shaft. I tried to press it on, and there was more resistence than I felt comfortable. So I didn't want to keep pushing.
Now that I know I was on the right track with what I was doing, I'll be a little more aggressive with the $25.00 plastic part... thanks.
