Replacement Kitchenaid washer timers bad?

I received two replacement timers for Kitchenaid Superba washer, part number checks with model number. When I installed both, the washer would run for about 10 seconds, then stop for about a minute, then keep repeating. Machine also sounds loud during the few seconds it runs. When I reinstall my old timer, the the washer runs just fine. Only problem with old timer is knob won't turn dial. The place I got thinks it might be something else wrong with washer but I'm wondering if possible to get two bad timers?

SOURCE: How do you remove the knob off the Timer?

On my Amana LW8303W2, I had to hold the back of the know assembly to prevent the metal post from moving and rotate the knob itself counter clockwise until it came off. This may take longer than expected due to the post rotating which is difficult to detect.

Usually, if you pull the knob off of the timer assy, you will see in the that knob a "KNOTCH" that is used to align the knob to the timer. That could have been stripped out. Check that first.

SOURCE: how does the timer knob come off

Push the knob to the off position then spin it to the left. it should just screw off. There is only one or two models that dont. To acces the timer you have to take the 2 screws out of the corners of the control panel (philips) They are either on the front or the back of the machine, left and right corners. The whole control panel will pull forward and then lift up and flip back. Theres the timer. Any more questions let me know.

SOURCE: kitchenaid superba washer stopped working

The timer knob on the front of the panel have to be removed. It unscrews, counterclockwise. If there are any plastic discs behind it, they will also have to be removed (by pulling off). This will expose the two screws which hold the timer in place.

If the timer knob doesn't unscrew and spins freely, the shaft leading into the timer is dislodged (permanently). You will have to destroy the timer to get to it. Remove the backplate by twisting straight the bent metal pieces which hold the cover in place. When you get to where you can see the shaft you will have to destroy the plastic which surrounds it to get to the shaft ifself. A pair of vice grips and a "I don't care if I destroy it" attitude is helpful. Once you get to the bare metal shaft you can hold it with vice grips and unscrew the knob to expose the two screws which hold the timer in place.

Something in the timer came apart. Timer needs replaced. When in good working order, the timer should ONLY ever be turned clockwise..Reversing this could break it.

I have a kitchenaid superba s by s. About every 3 days the freezer quits running and then after about 4 hours the freezer starts working again. What may be the problem?

Are you sure your model number is KSRD22FKST ? Sounds like the defrost timer is defective yet the model number you have above your post shows a W10351625 Defrost Control Board
In the fresh food section above the top shelf the control panel has either a defrost timer or an electronic defrost control. Unplug refrigerator and remove the face of the control panel so you can examine the timer or electronic defrost control for burn marks or signs of heat. The timer or defrost control is most likely what is causing the problems you describedand changing will more than likely solve this problem, Let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze
Post the correct model number if possible, Thanks John Tripp

Can you please tell me where the timer is located on the kitchenaid superba side by side refrigerator

there isn't a timer in your machine,you have a computer board or an adaptive defrost board,open the fridge door,on top where the controls are the board is in there,also look on the right hand wall on the fridge side up near the ceiling and you'll see a tag with the full model number,25 different machines showed up with the number you sent,go here and look at part number 6 this is your board new part number W10351625 this is the newest number and fits all kitchenaids.also check the defrost thermostat located on top of the evap coil,if it has a white plastic ring around the top of it and it's lifted up then this is your problem,when you have a defrost problem it's not a bad idea to change out the t-stat too,if you remove the front bottom kickpanel there should be a tech sheet on the panel or taped on the wall,this will tell you how to manually put the machine into defrost,you'll know if it goes into defrost when the evap fan in the freezer stops and the compressor shuts down,with the back inside freezer wall removed see if the heater comes on,if it doesn't,unplug the machine,cut the two wires going to the t-stat and connect them bypassing the t-stat,put it back into defrost,if the heater comes on the t-stat is bad part 2321799 ,or if you have a meter you can read out the heater and t-stat,you have a calrod heater in your model and they hardly ever go,if you bypass the t-stat and the heater doesn't come on change out the t-stat and the computer board.if it was a bad t-stat leave the heater on and with a hair dryer melt out all the ice,the heater will help you.good luck

Not cold,everything defrosted ,motor noise still there model superba 48

Most of the time, it's the defrost timer failing and ice building up behind the back panel of the freezer. Also could be the thermostat both are easily replaceable.

Freezer is only cool, everything melting

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
