timer knob just spins
I have a Kenmore washer mod#110.23032102 and the timer control knob just spins. The knob does not move the outter ring to set the cycle.I have tried it in every position possible....Although if I set the outter ring with my hand...the washer works fine.... Is this a knob replacement or a complete timer?.....and how is the knob removed?......
John Pedrotti , "Although if I set the outer ring with my hand...the washer works fine" sounds like you need a new knob. when you pull on the knob, take a look and make sure that all the plasitic tabs are still attached to the timer. It is of course possible that it is your timer shaft, which would require a new timer. Start of with the knob. It is available like this. Check this video for instructions. Hope this helps, good luck.

Lid Switch Assembly
If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly
If the washer stops mid cycle the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Water Inlet Valve
If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.
Main Control Board
If the washer stops mid-cycle the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other causes first such as the lid or door switch and other components.
If the washer stops mid cycle the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer."
