    Guru thanks for your help. After much research on the web I found out
    that to remove the control panel I have to slide a putty knife under it
    in each front corner to release clips that hold it down. There were no
    screws any where on the control panel that's what through me. I got
    the control panel off now I still can't get the knob off. I tried your
    method and with the knob in the off position it just spins freely. The
    only way that it has any friction is when it is in the on position. I
    am just going to break it off and replace it with a new one.
    Thanks again for your help.

Push the knob to the off position then spin it to the left. it should just screw off. There is only one or two models that dont. To acces the timer you have to take the 2 screws out of the corners of the control panel (philips) They are either on the front or the back of the machine, left and right corners. The whole control panel will pull forward and then lift up and flip back. Theres the timer. Any more questions let me know.

How to replace the timer on a Kenmore 90 series washing machine?


The timer on a washing Kenmore washing machine is the brains of the unit. The timer controls how long the clothes are to be washed, rinsed, spun and dried. The timer is located behind the timer knob in the main control panel. If the timer fails, it can be replaced with just a few hand tools.
1 Unplug the washing machine's cord from the electrical outlet.
2 Remove the two screws securing the main-panel end caps with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Lift the main panel up and rotate it backward so the inside of the panel is exposed. If your model does not have end caps, slide a putty knife between the main panel and the washing machine's top, then pry up to free the panel from its retaining clips.
3 Turn the knob by hand from one side while looking at the back of the timer from the other side. You should see the timer knob's shaft turning. Grasp the black plastic locking tab in the center of the timer knob's shaft with a pair of needle-nose pliers and pull it out. You should feel a click.
4 Pull the timer knob off of its shaft. You may need to hold the locking tab with the pliers as you do this. Remove the trim plate from under the knob.
5 Unplug the wiring connector from the back of the timer. Remove the screws securing the timer to the main panel with a nut driver and remove the timer.
6 Install the new timer into the panel and secure it with the screws, using a nut driver. Install the timer's trim plate and wire connector.
7 Install the knob onto the timer's shaft. Make sure the locking tab is still pulled out before installing the knob. Once the knob is pushed onto the shaft, hold the knob with one hand while pushing the locking tab in from the other side. You should feel it click into position.
8 Reinstall the main panel and end caps, if applicable. Plug in the electrical cord and run the washer on various wash and rinse cycles to test that the timer is working.

Things You Will Need
  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Putty knife
  • Nut driver
  • Needle-nose pliers
  • Timer

Warning
  • Pulling or installing the timer knob without first pulling the locking tab can break the tab, the shaft or the knob.

Trying to replace timer on Kenmore 700 washing machine (model 110.28727200). The existing timer is an Invensys model W10129602. Where can I find replacement or substitute parts?


Here is the timer to order. To remove the knob on the old timer, from the back of the timer there is the knob pin that you push in and it will release the the knob.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Kenmore 90 plus machine, top loader. the machine fills with water and agitates. It does not stop. The knob stays on the initial timer setting


Easy fix. Replace the timer. The timer drive motor or gears inside have failed. Their are 2 styles of timers. Plastic type base and a metal type base. The plastic timer has a hollow shaft. A plastic rod with a rounded tip is inserted into the hollow shaft to hold the timer knob in place. To remove the knob and skirt on these you simply yank out the rod and the knob will come on off. Then you can yank off the skirt (dial Indicator) and the timer mounting screws will then be revealed. The other style has a threaded shaft in which the knob will unscrew and the skirt can be removed so you can get to the timer mounting screws. A big old molex type plug goes into the timer. You yank that out and look for corrosion before buying anything AND make sure that plug is in there tight because it can vibrate out.

Timer replacement


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.

Kenmore Series 80 Washer timer knob spins


Something in the timer came apart. Timer needs replaced. When in good working order, the timer should ONLY ever be turned clockwise..Reversing this could break it.
