In order to take the knob off first you look behind the timer and in the center there's a white or clear piece of plastic while looking horizontaly at it you will see a space in it like a tab. Get a pair of needlenose pliers and insert it into the hole and be GENTAL you want to pull up or away from the device while at the same time pulling on the knob. If you do this correctly the knob will come off but theirs two more pieces to take off. After the knob is taken off theirs like a round plastic shield that should pop off using your hand then theirs the indicator after that you should use a screw driver a flat head and try to center the screw driver in the center of the piece ( the piece will flex so dont be scared of that but be GENTAL)and be GENTAL but firm when you push down on the screw driver so you lift the piece off the center post and now everyting is free and the timer can be removed from the washer.


This Is for Timer Part #3955765 for WhirlPool Washers.

Hope this helped anyone who found this info useful.

How to replace timer knob on Maytag PAV 2300 aww, old one snapped off leaving just the stem


This is from another site but does a good job of explaining how to change your timer:
http://www.the-appliance-clinic.com/myttimer.html
The hardest part will be swapping the knob because you have to lift the top of it off and sometimes they can be fiesty.
WORDS OF CAUTION.

DO NOT pull all the wires off of the OLD timer. DO a ONE for ONE wire swap. i.e pull one wire from the old timer... and hook it up to the new one on the exact same terminal as the old timer.

Spin cycle is hit and miss,


It could be the timer but don't rule out a loose lid switch. You have to remove the knob to get the timer off. To do so you have to pull the retaining rod out a bitdd8bcfd.jpg

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.

Timer switch on GE washer


You don't state your exact model number, and the number off the timer is not the actual part number (it's some sort of part stamping number). Most likely what has happened is a plastic tab on the timer housing (which normally goes into a slot in the metal, and thus holds the timer at that point) has broken off. The fix is to replace the timer, but instead of buying a new timer, I usually fashion a Z type piece of metal which I can put one screw though into the metal and the other side holding the timer against the metal. Takes a little work, but it's a lot cheaper than a new timer.
If you want to take the timer knob off, you have to pull it out and use a thin tool, like a small screwdriver, to push the plastic clip off the shaft behind the knob, allowing the knob to then come off the shaft. Push the clip back on the knob when off, so that all you have to do to reinstall the knob is push it on and it will lock on the shaft again.

Timer Knob


The clip pulls straight up off the shaft directly behind the knob. You can use a small screwdriver or a pair of needlenose pliers to pull it out. Once the clip is removed the knob will slide off the timer shaft.

Yes, stop pulling on it. Axcess the rear of the timer there will be a smaller hole with a black piece of plastic inside where the knob shaft would be if it went all the way through. use needle nose pliers to grab the plastic piece and pull out. it is easier if the knob is pushed in is gets recessed a little more when you pull out the knob. The new timer comes with a new plastic piec pull it out then push back in to lock on the knob again.
