There should be a spring clip that holds the timer knob on. It or the timer knob may need replaced. Here is a picture of the timer knob and the spring clip. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THE START CONTACT IN THE TIMER IS NOT MAKING A CONNECTION UNTIL YOU PULL OUT ON THE SHAFT OF THE TIMER. MOST TIMES IT NEEDS A NEW TIMER.

Frigidare washer hums loudly and doesn't fill with water


I figured out what was wrong with it. We narrowed it down to the pump or the timer. We determined that since the machine was spinning when the lid was down and it was spinning no matter where the dial was set, we figured it had to be the timer.

We did have one issue getting the dial off the washer. The trick to it was to remove the pin from the middle of the timer and the dial just came right off.

It was an easy fix really and the timer cost us $95.00 Hope this helps someone else in the future.

look for something stuck in the impeller (blower fan) that would cause the motor to hum and not run. If nothing is stuck your motor may be shot.
