I have a whirlpool top loading washer. Only identification

Resolved Question:

I have a whirlpool top loading washer. Only identification I can readily find is probably a serial number (WTW55218Q0). Yesterday the Load Size selector became stuck in the Extra Small position. It is a rotary selector that would normally twist clockwise to the other positions but will not budge at the moment. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance Eric Mikkelsen
