I have a GE washer model number wbsr1060t2ww. The timer knob and dial behind it are spinning freely rather than engaging and selecting a wash cycle. I can't figure out how to get the knob off. I've read the message in this forum about removing a spring clip behind the knob, but I can't see one on mine. How can I get this knob off? Thanks.

Reference #9 is the white plastic clip, will be behind the knob, you will have either a stripped knob or timer hub, you should see which or if both, have the teeth worn off....

How do you get that clip off? I need to replace the timer unit because of a broken bracket and I want to be able to re-use the knob - so I don't want to break it. I have model number wpsq3120t2ww, but it sounds pretty similar.

   The Force is telling me this is what you should do.  If you haven't already, remove the four torx screws from the top of the console.  You may want to unplug the washing machine.  Place your hand on the back of the timer while you rotate and push down lightly on the timer dial until the notch lines up and the dial slides down a bit further.  You should be able to see the clip a little better now.  I've used hemostats, needle nose pliers, or a small flat screwdriver to remove that clip.

I love it when the Force nails it like that.
