(Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.

On the back of the knob are teeth which grip to the gears on the timer itself. You'll need to pull the knob out and use needle nose pliers to pull the locking clip behind the knob off so you can pull the knob off completely. Hopefully you just need to replace the knob because it's only $5 or so, but if the teeth on the timer are completely ground down, you'd have to replace the entire timer as well. Below is a link to the knob that you'd want to order for your model. CLICK HERE for knob We are on the honor system here.
