SOURCE: Removal of the timer knob.

you have two different knobs to replace? it the water level knob or the timer knob?
if its the timer knob you need to remove, look underneath the timer and you will find a black plastic pin depressed at the middle. pull it slowly for about 1/4 of an inch.

then you can remove the knob in the front of the timer switch.

in putting it back, install the knob first in the timer and then depressed that black plastic pin to lock the knob.

be carefull not to pull the plastic pin all the way out. it would be very hard to put it back in.

SOURCE: How to remove fan cover

Hi, although mine is currently not working I was able to take the cover off by loosening the six screws that hold the front grill on - the screw heads are visible around the edge of the outer ring.

Good Luck


PS - there are then four (I think) which fasten the back grill to the motor

SOURCE: The interior dome light is burned out, removing cover problem.

You will have to pry off the lens CAREFULLY using a small screwdriver. There are two little plastic protrusions on each long side of the lens which fit into the casement. You can ease the casement away from the lens enough to get it to pop out. Re-inserting it is the same, but probably easier.
Gently, give it a try.
Hope this helps you.

Will not heat just cold air and once it reaches 32 min left it stays there

Sorry for the troubles sounds like you have a bad timer since its not heat then the timer wont advance past a certain point. I would recommend you calling a qualified service technician come look at it and to replace the bad timer or you can do this yourself. You will need the model number off the dryer which will be on the back of the unit on the dash or inside the door opening take that number to your local appliance parts house so they can get you the proper timer. Now for installing it make sure you unplug the unit and then you will have to remove the back cover panel on the dash once removed slowly remove wire by wire replacing it to where its suppose to go on the new timer if you put a wire in the wrong spot you will fry the new timer once completed remove the old timer it should have 2 screws holding it to the dash and replace it with the new timer and put your cover back on and then plug it back up and set the timer to 60mins on the timed dry and tune it on and see if it Advances and heats. I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Kenmore Electric Dryer model# 11064672400 doesn't heat up. Repair guy said that the timer is bad and that is the reason that dryer will not dry. Blower and timer seems to be working, just not heating or...

Lets look at that fried timer
A leg on the timer with a big old fat red wire goes down to the heating element. over time the contacts take a beating from the arcing. To test it remove the red wire from the terminal marked RH and clip one lead of an ohmmeter to that terminal. Then check for continuity between that leg and any other terminal on that there timer. if you cannot get a reading. you have a bad timer. Turn the timer knob to various spots on the timer dial to do a thorough test. Onward to today's fabulous timer deal:
You kiddin me $108? That is high even for a fab price. I would do this before buying a new timer.
What can you loose at this point? Remove the timer from the dryer. Take the small shank keeper off the shaft. If it breaks toss it, it ain't nothing but a mechanic stopper anyways. Next remove the 2 screws to the cover and CAREFULLY get that plate off without disturbing the innards. Look for that burn contact and file it down smooth. With any luck ya might get it ta go a while longer. With a price like that the timer ought ta have solid gold contacts. themobilian_520.jpg

Dryer turns no heat how do you check the element

After removing power and vent remove rear dust cover.3974507.jpg The element is on the right hand side. Number four.4ee6577.jpgYou can examine it for breaks. If the element is good then number 1 and 3 babouve could be bad.5934438.jpg
If the heater and limits are fine and you know you have 240 volts to L1 and L2 then you might have a burnt contact in the timer.1d20471.jpg If that is good then the circuit breakerc5d6f93.jpg or receptacle might just be bad.

Trying to remove the user interface cover for a kenmore washer

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.

Cycle not running correctly. sometimes won't start or if it does won't release the soap and may run without ever stopping on its own.

  • Test the timer motor
  • Test the heating element
  • Test the thermostat
  • The timer motor regulates the length of time power is routed to each component. If the timer motor does not function properly, it can result in a wide range of problems. Common symptoms include sticking in a cycle, cycle times running too long, or failure of the dishwasher to start at all.
    To service the timer motor, it is necessary to access the control panel in the door. Access varies by model; on some models you can remove just the control panel on others you must remove the interior or exterior panel of the door.
  • The heating element is used to heat the water and/or dry the dishes. If it does not function properly it can result in unsatisfactory cleansing of the dishes or the failure of a cycle to complete properly.

    First, open the door and look into the tub and locate the heating element (if it is covered, remove the lower dish rack and cover). The heating element has two terminals which extend through the bottom of the tub, note the general location where they go through.
    To access the heating element's wiring, remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.
    Look into the lower access area and locate where the terminals come through the tub. Each terminal has a wire connected to it. Label the wires and the terminals so that they can be properly reconnected. Pull the wire off of each terminal; they are connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers. Inspect the connector and terminal for corrosion. If either is corroded they should
