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 iamtubin2 - Try resetting the unit at the household circuit breaker and confirm that there is power to the unit. If there is power and unit will not start you could possibly have a defective control board, cord or wiring. Do you notice any error codes displayed on the control panel or lights blinking? If so, if panel displays "DR", either the door is not closing properly or it may have a defective door lock switch. However, if panel displays "DDO" the drawer is not closing, magnet may be missing or have a defective reed switch. Typically this is not a do it yourself job and it is something that you want a certified professional to install/repair for you due to safety and liability reasons.
