I want to replace a timer on a Whirlpool washer Model# LSN1000KQW

Good day Mr.james dant..

Whirlpool manufactures many types of washing machines. Whirlpool's top load models rely on an analog timer that controls the cycle used to wash the clothes in the washing machine, rather than a digital control board found in most front load models. The timer contains a number of moving parts and is physically turned to choose the wash cycle. Because of the high usage of the timer, it will eventually break, requiring replacement. Rather than calling a service technician to repair the timer, replace the timer yourself to save both time and money.
1. Unplug the washing machine from the wall outlet

2. Turn the dial to the "Off" position and then unscrew the knob from the timer. To unscrew, hold the dial with one hand and turn the knob counter-clockwise.

3. Lift the dial off of the washing machine.

4. Remove the two mounting screws securing the timer into position. 5. Remove the two screws from the bottom left and right sides of the control panel, then rotate the control panel up 180 degrees.
6. Remove the wire harness from the old timer and remove the old timer
7. Connect the wire harness to the new timer.

8. Place the timer into the control panel. Hold the timer post with one hand and rotate the control panel back down. Secure the timer into place using the mounting screws that were removed from the old timer
9. Place the dial back onto the timer post and then screw the knob onto the post.
10. Plug the washer back into the wall outlet

1.3 year old Frigidaire Stackable washer/dryer model FEX831FS won't drain. Checked pump and hoses. OK. Am in remote Alaska and we don't have service tech's here. Any suggestions.

What you want to check is the lid switch..remove the front panel..on the switch/lid lock asm.will be
the main switch which is part in the black body of the lock asm. the 2 terminals their will have contunuty with zero ohms when lid is closed

when lid closed the white switch will be open and closed when lid open

the one in the black body on the main lock asm. will be open when lid open

IF it does turn out that the lid lock is the problem the part number for it is 134101800
it could be purchased online at;

If the switch checks to be good test for power into the drain pump if no power the timer is what is wrong the washer (not dryer) timer is part# 131758600

Washer works but does not run through the spin cycle. it will if i go to it with the timer switch. but not with the timer. when washer gets to the off pos. still has water in it. sat and watched it on...

Sounds like the timer isn't advancing does'nt it.
See if there is power getting to timer motor, but sounds more like timer getting stuck ,especially if older model .replace timer if out of warranty

good luck

My washer is not draining during the spin cycle

not draining your washer at all, pump may be bad or no power to pump, take the drain hose out of the "stand-pipe" where water enters the sewer drain, and lower to floor and see if water drains by gravity if only slowly your pump or hose may have a slug of crud in it blocking drainage to sewer pipe
