Why can't I hear the timer ticking?


The timer, if it's the mechanical type that you have to push in the knob to select cycles, then pull out to start, is *not* repairable. From what you are describing, it sounds like the internal mechanism had broken and the timer needs to be replaced. There is a specific, small procedure for removing the dial and replacing it on the new timer--if you are unsure on how to do this, get a qualified tech to do it--otherwise you run the real risk of breaking the mechanism in the new timer. I hope I helped you!

Im replacing the timer on a whirlpool washer . how does the knob come off?


Quick and easy... I'm guessing you've already got the control panel taken apart so you can see the back of the timer. Just take out the black piece that holds the timer and knob together and attach the new timer replacing the wire mount and black knob

You can save a LOT of money by fixing it yourself.

All that is wrong with the knob are broken wires from the knob's PC board to the main PC board on the AC control.

All you have to do is remove the AC main control, take it apart, and resolder the broken wires from the PC board with the knob on it, to the main AC pc board. There are 3 wires, any number could be broken.

If you take it apart and solder the broken wires, this WILL fix your issue. Just make sure you put the wires back exactly where they go.

A FIXYA rating (4 blue diamonds) would be most appreciated for my assistance.

I need to replace the timer on a series 800 washer


Fix the timer on the washer so that it fills with the correct amount of water, and so there is the correct amount of time for each cycle. Make sure the washer is unplugged and take off the control knobs and the panel that lays over the knobs. The knobs could be either at the front or back of the machine. Check the wires that link the timer to other areas of the washer. If they are slack, push them further into place with pliers.


Change the timer by disconnecting the old one. Make sure the new timer is made for the brand of washer that you own. Unhook the wires to the old timer one at a time and connect each wire to the new timer.

Timer switch on GE washer


You don't state your exact model number, and the number off the timer is not the actual part number (it's some sort of part stamping number). Most likely what has happened is a plastic tab on the timer housing (which normally goes into a slot in the metal, and thus holds the timer at that point) has broken off. The fix is to replace the timer, but instead of buying a new timer, I usually fashion a Z type piece of metal which I can put one screw though into the metal and the other side holding the timer against the metal. Takes a little work, but it's a lot cheaper than a new timer.
If you want to take the timer knob off, you have to pull it out and use a thin tool, like a small screwdriver, to push the plastic clip off the shaft behind the knob, allowing the knob to then come off the shaft. Push the clip back on the knob when off, so that all you have to do to reinstall the knob is push it on and it will lock on the shaft again.

TIMER KNOB IS BROKEN


I've had the same problem. I checked out the Kitchen Aid website, called the toll-free number listed on the site (800-541-6390), and talked to a very pleasant and helpful customer service representative. She said she would be sending a free replacement knob that would arrive in 7 to 10 days. It may sound ominous, but if ya can't fix ya, ya gotta replaceya!
