GE Washer whdsr316goww. Trying to remove timer knob. Do not see plastic clip. Appears to have metal spring clip. Have control panel open but cannot remove timer knob. Have the metal clip slid off knob towards the timer but still cannot remove knob. How can we remove this knob so it can be replaced?
Answer Hello, according to the diagram provided you will see there is a small plastic clip WH1X2117 that is holding the knob on. The knob is held on with a plastic clip behind it. Use needle nose pliers to get the clip off, the knob will then come off, put the new on one, put the clip back on and you are all set. Here is a link to the parts diagram: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5230173, refer to clip #9. Hope this helps!

How to fix the load size switch?
Answer Hello Delia. Disconnect the power. Remove the screws along the back top of the control panel. Pull panel forward and off the unit. Now you can access the pressure switch. Remove the hose, wires and knob from the switch. Release the locking tab and twist to remove the switch. Install new switch in reverse order.
