If you suspect you have a defective timer it can easily be replaced by performing the following steps:


1. Unplug washing machine... and pull out the timer knob. Some knobs have a removeable center cap and hidden screw. Some are simply slip-fit. Remove the knob.

2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.

a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer.
The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer.
There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.


b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up.
There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.


3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.

4. Disconnect all power plugs and remove the timer's mounting screws.

5. Reinstall reverse of removal.

Do i need to power down to change the back up battery


If this is ordinary residential timer, you can replace battery without changing anything.
Just replace battery.
Most timers will hold some or part of the memory during battery changeover... frequently losing no programming if battery change is done quickly, and battery was not completely depleted, and timer is still functional.
If timer function is not restored after battery change, reset timer fully and then reprogram.
If battery change and reset does not work, then timer is probably gone bad.
Most modern timers have reset button, but some require a 2-button sequence to reset.
Other modern timers have a 'battery' but the battery is built into the circuit board and thus not replaceable ... it is rechargeable, like a capacitor ... but when it fails .. the timer needs to be replaced.
Timers with replaceable batteries are generally not functional after exposure to freezing temperatures for several day, but the non-replaceable type generally have wider tolerance for temperature variation.

Intermatic t10004rt3 pool timer cycles a loud hum/buzz noise like bad contacts or relay


T10004R control center has one T104 240V timer, with extra space for another timer or freeze control etc.
You can clean up the timer and replace clock motor to stop most noises.
The T104M (M for mechanism-only, snaps into the control center enclosure.
The T104 also snaps out of enclosure using thumb spring located top inside box.
Take image of wires before disconnecting from timer.
The T104 is identical to WH40, same parts, same trippers, same appearance, except with different override lever.
Here are photos of WH40 showing how to take apart timer and clean it, also with links identifying replacement parts:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Photos-of-WH40-timer.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T104

If you need to replace timer, it is cheaper to buy the ordinary T104 that comes inside a box and can be snapped out, instead of buying T104M (M for mechanism-only)

As you probably know, Paragon is no longer making timers and parts except defrost timers.
4003-00 is not a defrost timer
4003-00 is DPST 120Volt timer 24-hour mechanical timer
Paragon timers and manuals

Intermatic cross reference shows that T-103 is replacement for 4003-00

THE TIMER IS NOT ROTATING(I CAN MANUALLY ROTATE IT,BUT IT DOES NOT MOVE WHEN THE DRYER IS RUNNING). DRYER DOES NOT PRODUCE ENOUGH HEAT AND IT TAKES LOT OF TIME (4HRS)TO DRY THE LAUNDRY.


You need to buy a new timer and replace it. Be careful when replacing the timer as there are many electrical contacts in the back of the timer so when remove it, please label all the wires. Please follow the instruction from the manufacturer how to replace the timer. Of course, make sure you unplug the dryer because the dryer is powered by 220~240 VAC not 110~120 VAC.
As for the heater, there are two possibilities. The first one is, part of the heating element is open circuit and therefore, there is not enough heat to your clothing. The second possibility is, your timer contacts is broken, when the timer asks for high heat, the electricity supposes going to all the heating elements, but since the timer contacts are broken, you have only part of the heating elements working. The heating elements are quite easy to replace but please replace the timer first. You may fix both problems once you replaced the timer. WL

Clock Stopped Turning


Most likely, the timer motor has failed and needs to be replaced. As the timer motor is constantly running 24/7, getting 19 years of use is significant and is well beyond the typical life of a mechanical timer of this type. I know, I've got the same ones on my pool and usually have to replace them every 10-12 years.

As the timer IS 19+ years old, it would be best to replace the entire unit instead of looking to tyr to get just a replacement timer motor, since the cost for a new timer isn't all that much compared to the cost for just the motor.

Intermatic also makes a digital timer version of this type of timer, but for the relatively low price of a new, replacement mechanical timer, it might be a good idea to get another one like you have and expect another long working life.

Sorry that there really isn't much to repair in such an old timer, since the motor is the critical part.

The replacement should be easy to do yourself, just remember to turn off the power breaker and disconnect the power to the timer. All you need to do is exchange the wires into the new replacement timer I find that taking a picture of the timer as it is, will help you get the connections correct for the new timer.

Also, check the model number of your present timer and voltage, (some pool equipment is 100V-AC while others are 220V-AC) to get the correct replacment timer.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards.

Ge timer on washer is broken


If it no longer clicks, the timer assembly will need to be replaced. If just the knob broke off, the timer should be good.
