Question about Frigidaire FWS833A Top Load Washer
I have a Maytag A606 washing machine. The timer went bad, so I replaced it with a Maytag 205243 timer. Now the dial on the machine is out of sync with the timer - it is off about 30 degrees. I don't know what I could have changed or how I can adjust the relationship between the dial and the timer - it appears to be fixed!
Ive fixed lots off washers over the years[15,000 service calls] and was careful while taking parts off if i wasn't fulmilure with that model,but most timers and knobs have a key way so the knob can only go on one way.if thats not true for you, try this.turn the timer shaft till the washer is at the end of the wash cycle.[finished the load,it would be the final spin ,maybe five minutes long.when thats done the timer advances to off]now knowing that thats an off position set on your knob and then manuly turn it to the off position of the next cycle if it wont run you did it. if not you will have to go to the end of that cycle and remove knob and set to next notch in the knob,until you find the sweet spot.hope this helps God bless,tom

Maytag is imofamous for multiple parts for same product line. the par tnumber is determined throuhg a serial number break, as to which part is needed for what machine, soits quite possible that the timer you installed may just be the wrong one, forthe most parrt knobs and skirts only go on one way so i dont think you did anything wrong
