On the control panel you have 2 screws,,, 1 on each end on bottom front, take those out, pull forward at bottom and swing up, timer is right there to replace.

Switch on washer stops at rinse. I have to twist to spin for it to spin. What might be the problem

It would appear that your timer is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Typically when a timer starts to wear out, over time, the plastic steps that are part of the timing sequence can wear down and cause the washer to malfunction.

If you can hear the time motor running but it doesn't ever go into the rinse cycle, then it is most likely the timer motor that is the issue.

If you want to get an idea of the cost for obtaining a replacement timer, you can go to and enter in your complete washer model number into their parts search and then select the "control" link to see a line drawing and parts list for your washer.

Since you didn't provide a model number for your washer, I'll give you the generic instructions for doing the replacement. Again, with the sears link above, you'll be able to see the location and mounting method of the timer on your washer.

This is an easy repair for anyone to undertake, just be sure to unplug the washer from the power outlet before you attempt it. First, remove the timer knob from the front of the washer simply by pulling it straight off. then with either a socket wrench or nut driver, remove the nut and lock washer that holds the timer onto the panel.

Now remove the screws on the backside of the control panel so you can get at the timer. remove any mounting screws/hardware that holds the timer on the panel. Once you've done that, you can just unplug the wiring harness from the faulty timer and plug it into the new one. Now just remount the timer, put the back panel cover back on and fasten the timer shaft with the lock washer and nut, put the timer knob back on and give it a try.

That should get your washer back working properly. I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I have a KAWE577BWH1 washer, it is not spinning during the spin cycle and is making a clicking sound

What you have is probably a broken drive coupling. These machines are designed to be repaired in place. A tech flips up the contrls and unplugs the lid switch harness. The tech then pops the S clips and removes the case. This makes it easy to access the motor,pump and that old broken coupler. Take a look at these repair pix

How Old is Kitchen Aid Washer model#KAWE577BWH1 Serial#CE0804943? Spin Cycle not working

Your washer was manufactured in 1995 and is made by Whirlpool. If your washer fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle or drain, the problem is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at,,, Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price. If you have questions, or my advice does not match your symptoms, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.

I need to repair my washing machine Model KAWE577BWH1

To remove the cabinet safely, the washing machine should be turned off and unplugged. Next take out the control panel by removing the screws. Also take out the spring clips which are situated in the corners and after doing that remove the harness that is connected to the lid switch wiring. Pull the lid and also keep a hand on the cabinet opening that shows itself when you open the lid. Furthermore adjust the cabinets position and then pull the lid and the cabinet opening. It should be removed now.
