How do you replace the timer in a Kenmore Washer Model 22622?


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Next, see the following for how to release the console:

Basic Whirlpool / Kenmore washers may use one of two different timers. See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Assuming that you have the metal timer, You'll need to remove the timer knob. The easiest way is to hold the metal shaft that passes through the timer with a thin needle nosed pliers while un-screwing the knob.

Once the knob is off, it's a simple matter to unplug the connectors and remove the bolts holding the timer to the console.

I have a Kenmore washer model 110-20712991. the timer doesn't advance. Wherever I put it, it stays there and only does that functions, never advancing to the next position. Is there any test i can perform...


It does sound like a bad timer:

See the following: This is a Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers. It has testing instructions as well as directions for removing each of the two types of timers.

If your timer is the one with a knob that un-screws, use a thin needle nosed pliers to hold the shaft going thru the timer while you un-screw the knob.

Removeing timer switch knob


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the following for how to release the console:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131&osCsid=d09053515715195798276a5664b79cf0

Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers:

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


If this is a basic top load, direct drive washer, these units may have one of two different timers. (See the Whirlpool PDF).

On models with a metal timer, you have to release the console, pull it forward and tilt it back in order to get to the back of the timer.

The knob screws onto a medal shaft that goes through the timer.

Usually, trying to un-screw the knob won't work by itself since the shaft will also turn.

I found that if you hold the back of the shaft with a thin needle-nosed pliers, you can unscrew the knob.

Then you simply have to disconnect the timer.

The Whirlpool PDF also has troubleshooting and testing procedures for the timer.

How do you remove the timer on a Whirlpool washer


Hello,
You have to unscrew the knob and remove the screws that are under it, some have just a center nut with a locating tab that goes into a hole to hold it straight.

Washer Doesnt Change Cycles


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

This appears to be a timer / timer motor problem.

I'd alto look at the Whirlpool / Kenmore direct drive installation and maintenance manual for testing the timer.

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
