Hotpoint WMF560P UK R - programme dial not working

Recommended Posts


My Hotpoint WMF560P UK R washing machine programme knob has suddenly stopped working.  The knob isn't broken as it still goes round but it no longer clicks to select a programme and annoyingly has got stuck on a programme that isn't much use. I've taken the washing machine apart but can't see anything obvious wrong with the knob. Does anyone know how I can fix this? Will replacing the knob solve my issue?Or is there any way of getting it stuck on the programme I need? We're planning to get a new washing machine once some building work is completed in about 3 months so it would be great if we could get this working for now to see us through.

Thank you in advance for any help that anyone can give.

The first thing to do would be to remove the program Selector from the control panel and take off the control knob to see whether it is the actual knob itself that is jammed, or the control selector that it is supposed to turn. If it is the selector then it will need replacing.
