Amana Washer Control Knob

The knob on my Amana Heavy Duty, Super Capacity washing machine will no longer push or pull and moves freely around, but without engaging the cycles. The washer is an approx 1995 model and I believe the number is 31315.

I have taken off the cover, but cannot get the knob/dial off the control panel.

If I do, is it possible to fix the knob, replace only the knob, or will I likely have to get a new cycle control unit?

Thanks for your help.

Solution to Knob prob

I found out the control knob on the timer was cracked and had been screwed past the threads on the timer screw. When this happens, the "push/pull" mechanism fails. All I had to do was replace the knob, but I had to destroy it in order to remove it.

Once off, however, I got a replacement for $2 as opposed to paying over $60 for a new timer.
