Removed holding clip. Pulled knob off. Removed dial. reversed procedure to repair. Very easy
Were these instructions helpful?
Unplugged washer. Using needle nose pliers removed old knobs and installed new ones. Your how to video was helpful.
The part was slightly different and did not fit
pulled old ones off pushed new ones on done in no time. Knobs look just like old ones.
Watched install video - snapped it on - problem fixed.
First the exploded view provided in your website helped greatly I could see exactly what parts were involved. UPLUG WASHER ! 3 screws removed from back of control panel removed and the panel comes forward (hint..slide to right and it will detach from base making access easier) Pull knob out giving more room to remove plastic clip and knob comes off. 1 screw that holds timer in place removed and unplug the wiring harness. Reassemble using new parts in same manor as disassembly. Hint for putting clip on back of knob..place the clip partially on back of knob in the slot, put knob on shaft then using needle nose push the clip in place. Identifying and ordering parts here was a snap and saved me a bunch of money by not having to call a repair service. Thanks
I removed the timer knob clip with needle nosed pliers. Then I took the timer knob and compression ring off of their shaft. With a clean cloth and some 409,I cleaned the area behind where the knob and ring came from.I replaced all of the parts and tested the machine. It worked properly on all cycles. Until I found your site,I was prepared to spend over $700.00 on a new washer,but thankfully your instructions helped me save some money. Thank you: O.Smith
To remove the knob there is a small plastic clip holding it on. I pulled the knob out as far as it would normally go. Then I leaned over to look behind the knob and locate the clip. I used a small flat head screwdriver to push the clip off of the knob. I then pulled off the knob and dial compression ring. Inserted new compression ring first, then the knob. Installed new clip, being sure it secured the knob. That was all, very easy. The problem was cause by the plastic teeth on the knob had all broken off. This kept the knob from engaging the timer, and it would always spin freely.
Pulled washer away from wall, removed 2 screws, slide front panel to the right and lift up. Unclip both wire harnesses and remove screw, twist timer housing left and remove. Install new timer, and plug harnesses in, replace the front panel, after panel installed then install new dial knob and insert clip.
screwed in timer and put on knob
