Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
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.

Hello Joe, thank you for your inquiry!
From what you have described your Frigidaire washer will not drain or spin. I would recommend checking on the drain hose to make sure it is not restricted or too long. Also check to make sure your drain hose is not too far down your drain pipe. If the drain hose is in good condition it might be a possible problem with your timer or drain pump. Since it could any one of those underlying issues I would recommend having a professional technician out. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt
