I bought control knob #8181859. When trying to replace it on the shaft it hangs up and w/n push past the ridge on the shaft. The metal piece seems to be hanging up on the ridge. It slips on fine on the washer shaft but not the dryer. Any suggestions would be helpful. Larry
ANSWER Hello Larry,
Yes, the metal insert stays in the knob 8181859. You need to check and see if the old insert is stuck on the control knob shaft. If so, pull it off to remove it. Then the new knob pushes onto the shaft of the board.
