Default Volume knob problem plz help

I got my amp all soldered together. i added a switch to the battery + lead so i can turn it on and off without taking hte battery out. there is no sound comming from when i hook my guitar to the input becaue when i turn the amo 'on' i can hear the speaker "hiss" like it is on. i am thinkin its the volume knob that is the problem. there are 3 conenctors on the bottom and 3 in a row on the top of it(its from radioshack). what ones do i hook the 2 stationary terminals and what one is used as the variable? any info would be helpful

Middle one is always the wiper terminal. Check it with a DMM on Ohms setting
