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.

The machine won't start... it's been working fine


You don't give the model or any info. If it is "older" chances are you need a new settings knob or can clean the contacts inside if you are capable of removing it. Other than that check the obvious like cord/plug, spin button, that type of thing.

The machine suddenly "clicked' when I took laundry out and seems "dead"- Is it switch possibly pannel switch that stop working? When I rrotate knob and pull it out- no response- no electricity and no...


The control board went bad. Your switch went bad or you blew the fuse. All are located behind the knobs. Just remove the knobs and undue the screws up top. Make sure to unplug the system before opening it up

Wahing machine won't do anything


when in some of your wash cycles, try wiggling the timer knob back and forth. sometimes if the timer is going bad the motor will come to life for a split second. if this is the case you need a new timer. if it is completely dead no matter what, you most likely have a bad motor but there is still a chance that there is a bad timer. the odds just increase that it is a bad motor.

Will not turn on


# 1 reason for service call is the machine is not plugged in. Make sure outlet has power and washer really is plugged in. If not, then something inside is bad and needs to be taken apart. If absolutely nothing happens, then switch is bad.
