The knob for my kenmore apartment combined washer/dryer unit has broken off and I would like to replace it. With some difficulty, I can use the dial and continue to wash cloths. However, if it is not to difficult to replace the knob and dial, I'll do that. Appreciate any advise on this project.

Thanks for the help.

If you post the appliance complete model number so we can find out what design it is, someone may be able to offer a suggestion as to how to go about it.

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag *on your appliances* at my web site linked below.

The washer/dryer identification number:

Model #: 110.98575120

SN: ME2607253

Knob-timer PN: 3358421

Dial-WH PN: 3403095 (3398325)

It appears the knob broke off and left some of the knob fixed on the bolt where the knob fits onto the dial. The dial works but has a small crack. I attempted to remove the residual part of the knob left but it would not screw off.

Appreciate the help.

The washer timer's knob should be screwed onto the metal shaft of the timer (see the link below) and unscrew counter-clockwise to be removed. Whatever part of it is still on the timer's shaft should unscrew as well.

Just to make sure you're not trying to remove the wrong part, the dial fits onto the plastic part of the timer's shaft and not onto the metal part of the shaft the timer knob does onto.
