I have a Zanussi WDT 1085 which is a combination washer-dryer. Yesterday I turned the knob to put on a 'dry' cycle but the knob came unaligned with the dial that shows the different cycles and turned on a wash instead. Now the washer-dryer is full of water. I want to put on a spin/drain cycle but I'm afraid to turn on the dryer by accident. 

 

So, two questions. First, will it break the machine if I turn the dryer cycle on while it's still full of water? Second, does anyone know how to realign the knob? I think it is only pulled to the left about an inch but I can't be sure. I have attached a picture of the knob for reference. 

 

Thank you so much for any help!

The knob is likely to be broken or cracked otherwise it couldn't move out of line. If you put the dryer on with the drum full of water the machine should know there is water inside and not try to tumble dry. Just turn the knob a little more until you get it to pump out the water.
