Subject: Whirlpool WTW5700SWO - timer removal. How do I remove the escution plate behind the timer knob on the front of the control panel that is used to set the wash cycle? Does it just pull off? I have the knob off and am ready to replace the timer [elec.disconnected already] . It appears once the escution plate is removed I can slide the timer sideways off the steel plate in back, once I hold up the plastic detent. Is that correct? Thanks, John

SOURCE: How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer

I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: remove panel behind ignitor knobs

I found the solution at Fixitnow.com. Apparently the knobs are VERY difficult to remove and must be pried off using two screw drivers on either side of the knob and working back and forth. I sprayed them with WD40 before replacing them.

After getting past this poor design issue, the remainder of the repair was very simple, as I expected it would be.

SOURCE: remove Intermatic 60 min. wall timer face plate only from wall

That knob should just pull straight off. Check to make sure there isn't a tiny set screw on the side, but otherwise you can pull it off and remove the cover plate.

SOURCE: needing to take off old timer knob and replace with new one

We found this on another web site:
This was super easy. If you can screw and unscrew a nut from a bolt, its that easy.
The Knob assembaly comes as a whole. So once you remove the old knob (unscrew to the Left).

Then replace the new knob assy (screw to the Right) till its a snug fit. As you will see this knob is designed to be a clockwise rotation only - normal operation - sort of a self tightening screw.

How to replace the timer on a Kenmore 90 series washing machine?


The timer on a washing Kenmore washing machine is the brains of the unit. The timer controls how long the clothes are to be washed, rinsed, spun and dried. The timer is located behind the timer knob in the main control panel. If the timer fails, it can be replaced with just a few hand tools.
1 Unplug the washing machine's cord from the electrical outlet.
2 Remove the two screws securing the main-panel end caps with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Lift the main panel up and rotate it backward so the inside of the panel is exposed. If your model does not have end caps, slide a putty knife between the main panel and the washing machine's top, then pry up to free the panel from its retaining clips.
3 Turn the knob by hand from one side while looking at the back of the timer from the other side. You should see the timer knob's shaft turning. Grasp the black plastic locking tab in the center of the timer knob's shaft with a pair of needle-nose pliers and pull it out. You should feel a click.
4 Pull the timer knob off of its shaft. You may need to hold the locking tab with the pliers as you do this. Remove the trim plate from under the knob.
5 Unplug the wiring connector from the back of the timer. Remove the screws securing the timer to the main panel with a nut driver and remove the timer.
6 Install the new timer into the panel and secure it with the screws, using a nut driver. Install the timer's trim plate and wire connector.
7 Install the knob onto the timer's shaft. Make sure the locking tab is still pulled out before installing the knob. Once the knob is pushed onto the shaft, hold the knob with one hand while pushing the locking tab in from the other side. You should feel it click into position.
8 Reinstall the main panel and end caps, if applicable. Plug in the electrical cord and run the washer on various wash and rinse cycles to test that the timer is working.

Things You Will Need
  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Putty knife
  • Nut driver
  • Needle-nose pliers
  • Timer

Warning
  • Pulling or installing the timer knob without first pulling the locking tab can break the tab, the shaft or the knob.

I want to replace a timer on a Whirlpool washer Model# LSN1000KQW


Good day Mr.james dant..

Whirlpool manufactures many types of washing machines. Whirlpool's top load models rely on an analog timer that controls the cycle used to wash the clothes in the washing machine, rather than a digital control board found in most front load models. The timer contains a number of moving parts and is physically turned to choose the wash cycle. Because of the high usage of the timer, it will eventually break, requiring replacement. Rather than calling a service technician to repair the timer, replace the timer yourself to save both time and money.
Instructions
1. Unplug the washing machine from the wall outlet

2. Turn the dial to the "Off" position and then unscrew the knob from the timer. To unscrew, hold the dial with one hand and turn the knob counter-clockwise.

3. Lift the dial off of the washing machine.

4. Remove the two mounting screws securing the timer into position. 5. Remove the two screws from the bottom left and right sides of the control panel, then rotate the control panel up 180 degrees.
6. Remove the wire harness from the old timer and remove the old timer
7. Connect the wire harness to the new timer.

8. Place the timer into the control panel. Hold the timer post with one hand and rotate the control panel back down. Secure the timer into place using the mounting screws that were removed from the old timer
9. Place the dial back onto the timer post and then screw the knob onto the post.
10. Plug the washer back into the wall outlet

I have a stoves farmstyle 1100 df cream range cooker. I am having problems with the timer and have bought a new one but I need to know how to remove the top to fit it. The cooker serial number is 050564146


Hi.

To replace the timer control you need to remove the front fascia panel and the hotplate at top.

Before starting disconnect power and move the range forward.

To remove front panel you need to undo the 4 screws at the sides and to remove the knobs, then remove front panel.

To remove the hot plate you need to remove 4 screws at the back. There are also 4 screws at each side of the hot plate. You may need to remove the side panels to reach those screws. There is also an additional screw located behind the control.

Here a service manual for the range Farmstyle 1100E, which is similar to 1100DF. The disassembling instructions for top and front are at pages 62 to 64 of PDF (sections 4 to 6). Control board and touch pad are at page 67-68 (sections C and D of disassembling).

We have a whirlpool duet front load dryer, why does it beep during a cycle?? when clothes are still wet?


You can perform some Whirlpool electric dryer timer troubleshooting to determine if the timer is faulty or if the cause is somewhere else within the dryer.
  1. Access the Timer
    • Unplug the Whirlpool dryer power cord from the dryer electrical outlet. The timer is inside the control panel on the top of the dryer. Pull the dryer away from the back wall so that the control console can be raised without hitting the wall.
      Remove the single screw on each end of the control console that secures the control console housing to the top of the dryer. Grab the sides of the control console and raise the front of the console up and toward the rear of the dryer. With the control console in the service position you will now be able to test the timer.
    Test the Timer
    • Locate the dryer timer inside the control console. It will be directly behind the dryer timer control knob. There are two wires that connect from the dryer to the dryer timer. Place a piece of masking tape on each wire and write on the tape what terminal each wire attaches. Use a pair of needle nose pliers to remove the wires from the terminal ends on the timer.
      Set the scale on a volt-ohm meter to the RX1 setting to measure the ohms of the timer. Place one probe to one terminal and the other probe to the remaining terminal. You should get a reading between 2,000 ohms and 3,000 ohms. If you do not get this reading, replace the timer.
    Replacing the Timer
    • Pull the control knob off of the timer shaft on the face of the control console. Remove the two screws that secure the timer to the inside of the control console. Pull the timer out and take the timer with you to an appliance repair facility. Compare the new timer to the old timer to make sure that the mounting screws match.
      Place the new timer inside the console and secure the timer with the two retaining screws. Attach the wires to the timer and remove the masking tape from the wires. Lower the control console and reattach the console to the top of the dryer with the retaining screws. Push the control knob back over the timer shaft. Push the dryer back against the wall and plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

Whirlpool Dishwasher ADP 252 model (old) It will start with the program and then just stopped. I have to turn the knob to carry on with the next step of the program. Maybe dirty? Can I clean it somehow?


Sounds like you have a heating problem. Machines with a timer are controlled by the thermostat, so it wont click on until the machine reaches the correct temperature. Is the water hot? If yes then you need to replace the thermostat and high limit stat. If not hen it will be either the stats or element. Most likely the stats.

They typically look something like this, but if you visit an online spares site and select your make and model it will give you a breakdown of all the parts. To change put machine on its side and remove the bottom panel, this will give access to the components. If not then tilt machine back and remove the front kicker plate and the the panel in behind. The stats will be at the front of the appliance for access. Hope this helps

Washer does not change cycles on its own


timer is most likely bad if it will not move on its own at all..
3951703 - TIMER
you can access the timer by:
remove power from the unit.
remove the philips head screws that should be present in each left and right control panel end cap front.
slide the control panel bottom forward 1/2 inch and lift up.
the entire console will swing up on the hinges in the rear of the console top.
with the console upside down you can see the back of the timer, there is a small brown clip sort of recessed into the back of the timer that is connected to the timer knob/shaft. that clip needs to be pulled out so that the knob can be removed to access the screws on the front to remove the timer assembly.
around $100 new
hope this helps,
best of luck,

I need to know where the defrost timer is located?


Inside the control panel.
this unit has adaptive defrost circuit board.
Remove the control knobs.
Take a butter knife and go behind the front trim panel from the top. Snap it forward carefully.
Remove the screws holding the control panel in place.
Carefully lower the case. There will be a damper rod connected on the left side. Disconnect it only if you have to. Pay attention to re-hooking.
