Question about KitchenAid Washing Machines
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.

Check for power at the outlet first, did you trip a circuit breaker.
If you want to remove the control panel, first unplug the washer then on the bottom of the control panel are two screws, remove these then the control panel should pull forward and flip up to give you access to controls. Remember to watch for sharp edges once you remove any control panel
