GE Washer timer malfunction

When you push center knob to spin load selector ring, it won't move. If I grab the outer ring I can move it manually. Is the complete timer bad?

How to diagnose washer timer not turning?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the washer timer on your Frigidaire laundry center, model# GLEH1642DS, stopped turning and you want to know how you can diagnose this. Typically, this is not be a do it yourself repair, as there are no step by step repair instructions. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your appliance and should be able to diagnose it and determine what is causing the timer button to not turn. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Hello, I have a Maytag legacy series washing machine and recently it stopped working properly, first it tripped the breaker, then in regular washing mode it washes normally but skips spinning and water...


Sounds like a bad relay array, or timer module. The little motor that makes the selector move (and then trip the function switches inside the timer module) could have trouble moving the selector past a certain point. When the machine stops, press your ear up against the timer module. Do you hear the little timer motor running? Yes? then it's probably the timer module itself, not the timer motor. I say this because you can manually move the selector to activate the modes.

Our washer will continue in the final spin cycle and never finish.


That sounds to me like a problem with the timer. Is it hard to turn? You can add some zoomspout oil to these timers and twist em aound till they are easy to turn and sometimes fix that problem of the timer hanging up. The timer knob is an interesting design. To install the timer knob you simply push th e knob on and the clip holds it in place. But to get the timer knob off you have to use tweasers or equivthemobilian_1186.jpg

The dial to select wash cycle (GE top load washer) seems loose. It is difficult to turn, as if something is not engaging. Any suggestions?


The knob wears out and won't grab. It is easy enough to replace if you know the trick. Take pair of tweezers and remove the clip behind the knob, just push on the replacement knob and oil the timer then move the timer around several times to help the shaft turn easier.b8e8a25.jpg

WHDSR209DWW on/off button will not engage to spin the cycle selector dial


The cycle selector is not engaged onto the timer shaft. Need to remove the on/off knob by removing the plastic "U" clip. Remove the cycle selctor knob and check that the steel spring clip on the selector is fully seated. Re-install the cycle selector onto the timer shaft aligning the selector key with the with tthe notch on the timer shaft. Re-install the on/off knob.

The cycle selector and on/off combination is a poor design. Users press the on/off knob in and turn clockwise to set the wash cycle. If you're not gentle this action wears the teeth on the timer shaft and the user has to press harder and harder to set the wash cycle. This pressing causes the cycle selector to be pushed off the timer shaft and you can no longer operate the machine.

VERY IMPORTANT:
Stop using the on/off knob to set the wash cycle. Press on the cycle selector to set the wash cycle. Use the on/off knob only for starting or stopping the machine. Don't press or pull too hard on the on/off knob or you will wind up pushing the cycle selector off the timer shaft.

How to replace the selector control knob on a Frigidaire front load washer Model FWT449GFS2


Push-in center knob and and turn Counter Clockwise to loose it from the treaded shaft. Next, without Pushing in, continue turning CC till it comes off.

If necessary, remove the outer indicator knob by sqeezing the two release clips in the center. This knob is keyed to only go back on one way so you don't need to remember its location before removal.

Reverse the process to install new knobs.

Oh, if you need to replace the cam or timer which are behind these knobs, the front panel will have to be removed by first removing the top cover of the washer. Now you can access the six screws inside the washer and one in front behind the detergent dispenser.

The timer knob spins freely and I can't start the machine or set the timer.


"Can I replace it with a new knob or do I have to buy a new timer?"

It sounds like the knob is rounded out where it fits on the timer post, or It may just be loose. Pull the knob off and inspect it. If damaged, yes, you can buy another one.

How do I remove the selector knob on washer


The main selector control know spins off by turning the selector inner knob counterclockwise. The outer ring will then pull off. The other knobs are held on with friction and should just pull off.

The best way to get behind the front panel is by removing the top panel of the machine. There should be 2 gray/solver tabs at the back of the machine near the top if you remove the 2/4 screws from the top then the whole top panel will slide forward then lift off.

Be sure to unplug the machine first.

Washing machne problem


The help that you gave me was completely wrong. The support ring was okay. I solved my problem by buying a new timer and control knobs. The teflong 'gears' were worn out so the knobs rotated freely.
