Look for a small hole along the side of it that may hold a set screw...turn the screw counterclockwise...the screw may be a hex-head

I finally figured it out - duh! (That was intended for me). The center of the back of the timer has an inner plastic rod that is a different color from that of the timer. Pull that rod out which inturn will release the two tabs that hold's the knob. Once you've done that, you can now pull the knob off the timer.

On my Amana LW8303W2, I had to hold the back of the know assembly to prevent the metal post from moving and rotate the knob itself counter clockwise until it came off. This may take longer than expected due to the post rotating which is difficult to detect.

Removing timer knob on maytag washer mav2755aww

It unscrews or if it is a newer model, remove the console so you can tip it forward. You will see a (usually black or white) pin in the center of the timer, pull it out about and inch and then remove the knob from the front by pulling it off the timer shaft. Check you new timer and make sure it comes with one. So did some did not. Good luck.

I have a Maytag washing machine MAV3905AWW. I would like to replace the timer. How can I remove the knob?

Hello, To remove the knob on this unit you need to push the knob in and on the back side of the timer in the center is a white plastic pin that you have to hold with a small screwdriver while pulling the timer knob off. If you look at the back of the timer while pushing and pulling the knob in and out you will notice the plastic center pin moving in and out.Just hold it out and pull the knob off. Hope this helps.

I have a Whirlpool washer #LA8800XT and want to remove the Fabric Softener dispenser so I can remove the agitator. Does it just screw off? It seems to be stuck and I didn't want to break it if it didn't screw off.

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

Removal of the timer knob.

you have two different knobs to replace? it the water level knob or the timer knob?
if its the timer knob you need to remove, look underneath the timer and you will find a black plastic pin depressed at the middle. pull it slowly for about 1/4 of an inch.

then you can remove the knob in the front of the timer switch.

in putting it back, install the knob first in the timer and then depressed that black plastic pin to lock the knob.

be carefull not to pull the plastic pin all the way out. it would be very hard to put it back in.

Removing Timer knob on Kenmore Electric dryer

Normally, to remove the timer knob, simply push in on the timer knob and turn the knob counter clockwise. it should unscrew itself. If it does not, the shaft inside the timer has broken and the shaft simply free wheels so then you need to take a needle nose pliers to hold the shaft and then you can turn the knob or pull it off

Let me know if you have any further questions

Removing Timer Knob on Maytag MDE7400AYW dryer

Can anyone help me? I have a Maytag Atlantis that my parents just gave me and my wife. Unfortunately, they accidently removed the model number sticker in the door area. I need to buy a new timer but no one can find which timer to get without the model number. Via the internet, I think I narrowed it down to either the MDE7400AYQ or the MDE7400AYW....but they both look identical to me. Can anyone tell me what the difference between the two is so I can go get the part?
