Hello, Our Kenmore 90 Series washing machine has a small problem. When you pull the knob to select the desired cycle, the knob spins freely. It won't engage the dial that actually clicks and selects our desired cycle.

Any advice would be helpful.

Sincerely,

Mark Kasimoff

What is the model number, the ones I have seen you push in to select the cycles and pull out to start the washer, but these are made by Whirlpool, do not know who made yours but suspect Whirlpool since you show a 90 series..

Sorry, you are correct. When you push it in, it won't turn the dial.

Interestingly enough, we found an old part on the shelf. We don't remember replacing the part but it is possible. The one on the shelf is

Part no 3351118

the on currently on the machine is

Part no 3351118

Well, I guess we have replaced it before!

I did a parts search and it gave me this page:

Do you believe that I need to replace the whole unit

Or just this part?

Looks like a regular timer and knob assy., if the timer knob is not stripped out sounds like it is possible the cam came loose from the timer shaft inside of the timer, if this is the case the timer would have to be replaced.

The second picture in your post, (That round flat tan thing), has nothing to do with your washer. It just happened by chance that another manufacture had used that number for a totally unrelated part and on RepairClinc it will show all parts from any manufacture under the part# you enter.

The correct part# for your timer is the number you have: 3351118 and most likely this is what will have to be replaced.

If you're very handy at fixing and figuring how things come a part and go back together, you might be able to make one good timer out of your two bad ones.

I have the same problem.  I wanted to remove the timer to see if I could fix it or replace it.  I took the panel apart as far as I could, including separating the adhesive that holds the bezel to the frame with all the electrical parts mounted on it, but I still couldn't figure out how to get to the screws that hiold the timer assy to the panel.  Does the knob come off, or have I missed something else?  How do I remove the timner assy?

Thanks!

I found out how to remove the timer.

Push in the knob.  Hold the shaft as it sticks out the back and unscrew the main knob.  Other dials then pull off exposing the mounting screws . . .

Maybe this will help someone else that is (was) as clueless as I.

I have the same problem as well... spinning dial on the front. But the metal piece that you are referring to hold onto around the back is nested inside of a plastic piece, and I can't get a good hold on it to keep it fro spinning and undo the knob on the front. Suggestions??

OK figured it out... I just wedged a screwdriver tip (small) in there to prevent the shaft from spinning. Duh.... Thanks for the info, hope this helps someone else.
