Hi, my dial for starting the washer broke some time ago.  The silver thing (see pic) stopped 'gripping', and would just rotate around freely.

So, I took off the front panel... kind of broke it off, really :D... and found that I could grip the sides of the black circle (also see pic) to rotate it and set the washer.  Pulling on the silver thing still turns it on just fine.



A couple of days ago though, the black circle stopped 'gripping' as well, and I can't get the dial rotated around to start the wash.

I hope that an expert here can help me - the washer still works, I just need some way to start it.  I don't want to just randomly break in further, please, may I have some guidance?

Made in Canada is why you're not find the info.

The knob comes off by a little plastic slide clip under the knob, bend a paper clip with a hook on the end and pull knob out to on position and hook end of clip with paper clip hook and pull hard, the clip will come out then the knob will come right off.

You're going to have to replace the knob and the timer shaft hub to fix the problem.

Going to have to find a parts list to get part #'s, there are about 3 different knobs that it could be and 2 or 3 different timer shaft hubs depending on style of timer.

You may need just the knob or you might have to replace the timer as well. You will need to remove the knob to check the condition of the teeth on the knob and the timer. If you pull the timer knob out "like if you are starting the machine" and look behind the knob there should be a white plastic clip that holds the knob to the timer shaft. Remove the clip and pull the knob off and inspect the teeth on both parts. The clip can sometimes be difficult to see.
