Question about KitchenAid Washing Machines
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?

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.

SOURCE: GE washer timer knob
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.

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.
