Removing a whirlpool timer dial?

I have a whirlpool LSQ9600LG0 (extra care plus) washer with a broken timer dial. I cannot figure out how to remove the knob and dial. I have tried unscrewing, I have flipped the control panel back to see if there's a release or clip, and there isn't (everything I can find online says it should be a small black clip). All I can see (besides the timer and such) is a round metal thing, looks like the end of a bolt. Nothing that could be holding it from coming out, I wouldn't imagine. Just looks like the end of the peg/screw that should hold everything on. Any ideas, or a 'hey idiot, this is what you're supposed to do' suggestion?

SOURCE: How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer

I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: how to remove back & top of a whirlpool ultimate care II washer

I'm not sure of the model number of the stove but usually slide a putty knife under the control panel between the bottom of the control and the top of the base. There is a clip on each side then the panel will tilt back and you can take it off. After that there are 2 gold clips that hold the back on to the base. Remove them by snapping then out of the base. The the whole thing is loose and the base (where the lid and sides are. Comes out as 1 big piece. If you get the model number from under the lid, you can go to http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action?intcmp=xsite_Sears
and it will show you a breakdown of the machine. Let me know if you need anything else.

I want to replace a timer on a Whirlpool washer Model# LSN1000KQW


Good day Mr.james dant..

Whirlpool manufactures many types of washing machines. Whirlpool's top load models rely on an analog timer that controls the cycle used to wash the clothes in the washing machine, rather than a digital control board found in most front load models. The timer contains a number of moving parts and is physically turned to choose the wash cycle. Because of the high usage of the timer, it will eventually break, requiring replacement. Rather than calling a service technician to repair the timer, replace the timer yourself to save both time and money.
Instructions
1. Unplug the washing machine from the wall outlet

2. Turn the dial to the "Off" position and then unscrew the knob from the timer. To unscrew, hold the dial with one hand and turn the knob counter-clockwise.

3. Lift the dial off of the washing machine.

4. Remove the two mounting screws securing the timer into position. 5. Remove the two screws from the bottom left and right sides of the control panel, then rotate the control panel up 180 degrees.
6. Remove the wire harness from the old timer and remove the old timer
7. Connect the wire harness to the new timer.

8. Place the timer into the control panel. Hold the timer post with one hand and rotate the control panel back down. Secure the timer into place using the mounting screws that were removed from the old timer
9. Place the dial back onto the timer post and then screw the knob onto the post.
10. Plug the washer back into the wall outlet

Washer does not change cycles on its own


timer is most likely bad if it will not move on its own at all..
3951703 - TIMER
you can access the timer by:
remove power from the unit.
remove the philips head screws that should be present in each left and right control panel end cap front.
slide the control panel bottom forward 1/2 inch and lift up.
the entire console will swing up on the hinges in the rear of the console top.
with the console upside down you can see the back of the timer, there is a small brown clip sort of recessed into the back of the timer that is connected to the timer knob/shaft. that clip needs to be pulled out so that the knob can be removed to access the screws on the front to remove the timer assembly.
around $100 new
hope this helps,
best of luck,

How do you remove the timer on a Whirlpool washer


Hello,
You have to unscrew the knob and remove the screws that are under it, some have just a center nut with a locating tab that goes into a hole to hold it straight.

This is the deal, your washer is way to old to fix. The board is going bad and that is why it will not cycle properly. It would cost about $150.00 to fix and that does not even include labor. Consider craigslist as you can find some great deals from 40-60 for a newer one. Hope this helps.

No hot or warm wash cycle


If you suspect you have a defective timer it can easily be replaced by performing the following steps:


1. Unplug washing machine... and pull out the timer knob. Some knobs have a removeable center cap and hidden screw. Some are simply slip-fit. Remove the knob.

2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.

a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer.
The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer.
There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.


b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up.
There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.


3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.

4. Disconnect all power plugs and remove the timer's mounting screws.

5. Reinstall reverse of removal.
