    I think I need to replace the timer I have a 24032 top load washer. It fills with water goes through the wash cycle and stops. This is the first time this has happened. Now it sits full of water and chlothes. How much will it cost to have someone replace the timer?

    knob for the cycle pulls out to start water fill, but water does not come..does knob need some adjustment?

    There doesn't seem to be a black knob on the back of the timer. The back side looks like its one piece.

You pointed me in the right direction, the tab was clear and up in the timer assembly. Thanks for all your help.

If there is a black tab on the back of the timer, it needs to be pulled out of the timer before you can remove the knob

Hello, our whirlpool keeps washing and washing, never getting to the next cycle. thx for help.


Hello there:
The most common problem with this is that the timer is failing and will not allow the machine to go to the next cycle
So what you are going to have to do is to take off the back panel and remove the wires that are attached to the timer (this is the part that you select the different cycles from ) better know as the timer ok?
then remove the knob and remove the timer and replace it than hook up the wires back into the new one and put the knob back on and the test the machine ok? and hopefully you will be good to go from here:
I hope this is very helpfull for you
Best regards michael

Washer will not cycle


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Dial does not advance through all parts of the wash cycle


Replace the timer of the unit. With the mothel number that is behind the timer, you can order it. The timer location is at the back of the unit. Remouve the cover at the back of the control panel, then look for the part that look like a smal motor at the back of the knob. remouve the knob and the small screws, then desconect the wires plugs, do not cut any wire. then instal the new one.

Replace Timer Assembly on GE WJRR1470E1WW Washing Machine


Servicing the Timer
Most washing machine timers are digital or mechanical. The timer controls most of the operations of the washer: water level, tub filling and emptying, length of cycles, and cycle setting sequences. For this reason, any repairs to the timer should be made by a professional service person. However, there are a couple of checks you can make when you suspect the timer is faulty -- you may be able to install a new timer yourself.

Step 1: Unplug the washer. To access the timer, remove the control knobs and the panel that covers the controls. This may be a front panel, or access may be through a panel at the back of the unit. Carefully examine the wires that connect the timer to the other parts of the washer. If the wires are loose or disconnected, try pushing them into position; they usually fit into their terminals like plugs. Use long-nosed pliers to avoid breaking the wire connections -- never pull a wire by hand.

Step 2: To test the timer, use a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the power leads to the timer and clip one probe of the VOM to each lead. The VOM should read zero if the timer is working. Since the timer is a multiple switch, turn it through its cycle and test each pair of terminals in turn. The meter should read zero at all of these points. If one or more readings are above zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.

Step 3: To replace the timer, unscrew and disconnect the old one. Install a new timer made specifically for the washing machine. If there are many wires on the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one as you work. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram showing the connections before removing the old timer. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for correctness and screw the timer assembly into place.

In the next section, we will examine two of the most crucial elements of a washing machine -- the water inlet valves and the agitator.

Maytag Washing Machine Cycles Out of Sync with Dial


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

Machine will not advance to next function in cycle on its own.


A timer is easy to replace. Depending on your machine though if the timer is expensive just get a new machine or see if you can get a refurbished timer for less. If you remove the back panel which involves removing about 8 screws you will see the timer. Unplug the machine and just remove the wires connecting to it. Remove the few screws that hold the timer in and remove the timer then replace with the new one. Sometimes it takes a little love to get the thing out and make sure you remove the knob first from the front of the panel so it comes out. Let me know if you have any other questions.
