Timer is not working

My timer appears to be stuck or broken. Washer fills and works fine but timer will not rotate. Have to manually move dial 1 click at a time to complete a cycle. How can I repair this and is it expensive.

Re: Timer is not working

Mom, it sounds like a timer issue, not advancing. If your model number ends in RFS0, your part number would be 131436800. Cost of the timer is around 90.00. This is not a hard repair. back.

Why would my Amana washer not do anything but fill up with water. Nothing will function at all on all the cycles but the fill. It doesn't even click on the timer when you try to set to any setting exc

Hi Kirby
First... Caution
Because your dealing with water & electricity it can be lethal to fiddle around inside. That said...
Washing machines are controlled by a master timer unit, usually mechanical, but rotated by an AC Clock motor. If the timer is not getting voltages to the various Switches around the "timer unit" or "clock motor" then the individual selected functions won't work.
Manually Rotating to a particular function then Activating the On/Off Push/Pull switch should start things happening even if timer motor is dead. So
If your OK with AC electrical goods then open it up.
Connection wires may have fallen off or something simple. A multimeter is your best friend here. Look for the big rotary clock behind the main control dial. Listen for the clock motor running. The main Push in & out Button is the On / Off switch. Check that its got AC on the input wire & switches across to the other wire when the knob is pushed in / out. This may be the problem...

You can always call an appliance repair technician!
Good Luck

My washer gets stuck on a cycle

if you can manually move the timer to the next cycle and all works fine then you have a bad timer on unit... there are sevral gears in the timer usually made of plastic and over time thaey can get worn and not allow the timer to advance... if all works when you move the timer then most likely this is your problem (the timer) good luck to you

I put in a load. The machine filled up but did not stop filling. The dial did not proceede to next step, it stayed at the 10. Overflowing EVERYWHERE. When we moved the dial manually to spin, it drained...

your fill switch is either bad or "gllitched" and the timer cannot move until this switch senses the right amount of water for the load unless its an electronically sensed water/load capacity filled machine,when it starts,the water fills the unit and the pressure switch shuts the water fill off when at selected water level and powers the timer to continue the wash cycle,it works off a "bellows" on air pressure to change a switch by air pressure to operate the machine when full of water

Cannot set Control dial for wash cycle. Knob will not move indicator dial. Rotating without engaging indicator. Thanks

Pull the center knob strait off. I suspect the center shaft of the knob is broken. If it is order a new knob but before replacing it make sure the shaft on the timer does not have a metal sleeve from the knob remaining on the timer shaft. Temporarily you can try to use needle nose pliers to turn the shaft to see if the washer works.

Kenmore 300 washing machine does not leave rinse cycle

This sounds like a bad timer. If the machine is several years old, the timer could be in need of replacement.

If you are handy, you can replace this device yourself and you should be able to obtain the part from any local Sears parts store or from the internet.

If you are not familiar with this kind of work, it would be best to have a technician replace the timer.

My Amana LWA60AW washing machine won't agitate.

Some timer dials will not turn all the time they will sit for awhile then advance . If it don't move for a long time sounds like you have a bad timer motor.
Some motors can be replaced and some you have to replace the complete timer.
