I am replacing the washer timer and do not unserstand how to remove the front dial knobs FEA831FS
Hello HmKm, You should be able to just pull the knobs straight off the control stems. Once you have them off, there are a couple of screws on the angled section just above the washer lid. Remove them and you will be able to access the washer controls.
Before you go working on the parts, to remove the control timer, please unplug the stacked washer/dryer combo and turn the water offl. Now you can remove the two screws (that are behind the timer knob) to free it from the metal control panel. Depending on your model, there might be another mounting strap inside the unit that holds the timer in place. If so, remove those screws and you shoud be able to drop the timer down and remove the wiring connection plugs and take out the faulty timer. Now simply push the wiring plugs onto the new timer and reinstall.
Close everything up, reversing the procedures above and turn the power back on and the water and you should be able to use the washer/dryer as normal.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
