How to remove knob of Frigidaire Gallery Washer


Thank you for posting the make and model. You'd be surprised.
Before you do anything, unplug the machine from the wall. Better safe than sorry.
From the photographs of the machine I can find online, the knob appears to pull directly off, straight back. Pull evenly, and gently, from opposite sides (think 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock) as you slide the plastic knob off.
Before installing the knob on the new timer/cycle switch, smear a minute amount of Vaseline type jel to the shaft to facilitate easy insertion of the knob. As explicit as that sounds, the mechanics are the same and work well in both circumstances, as necessary.
There may be a set screw which holds the knob on the timer/cycle switch shaft. Carefully check the part of the knob that attaches to the shaft of the timer/cycle switch. If there is a set screw, loosen it, BUT, do not remove it, as you will probably lose it. After it is loose, remove the knob as described above.
Since you want to pull the knob in order to remove the timer/cycle switch, I assume you have already determined the problem is with the timer/cycle switch. Was that readily apparent? You are sure?
Please, before you start replacing electrical parts, remember that most parts supply houses do not take electrical parts in return. They assume, (sometimes not incorrectly) that you have fried the part they sold you because it does not now function properly, because the problem is somewhere else. Be careful here.
It is amazing how much value they place on small electrical components you think might cost just a few dollars.
They do cost just a few dollars, but it's because they have the proprietary color, fit and finish that quadruples the price.
Good luck.

I have a Frigidaire Gallery 13 cycle commercial HD super capacity washer and it will not change cycles automatically. Is this something I can fix myself?


Yes, you can fix this yourself very easy. You will need to replace the "timer". Here is the part you need to order. To install the timer, you will need to remove the back cover on the control panel and gain access to the timer. Then remove the knob from the timer and release the tab holding the timer in place. Slide the old timer out of the unit once the tab is released and unplug the wires going to it. Re-install with the new timer in reverse order.


Keep me posted!

How can I remove the timer knob from a Frigidaire Washer


Knob PN 131592001 Just looking at replacements it appears to just push on. If pulling on it does not get it off then rotate it CCW in an attempt to unscrew it. Just be VERY careful that the timer stem does not rotate if you turn the knob CCW or you will be buying a new timer. Open the top and hold the stem if you have too. (easier said than done) Worst case... if you have a bad knob and have a replacement knob in hand... break the defective knob. If your changing the timer look at the stem on the new timer. If it is threaded on the end the knob unscrews. If it is not threaded it pulls off.

The timer control knob seems to be free wheeling & no longer clicks when you turn it. We looked at a web site that sells parts & think it might be the timer, does that sound right?


Hi, It has something to do with the timer, that I can tell you.
Some timer knobs must be pushed in to rotate them, Others timer knobs must be pulled out. And, of course, some timers you just turn.
If you can turn the knob and it spins but the pointer on the timer does not spin. It is the knob assembly itself. Possibly just loose.
If you can turn the knob and the pointer on the timer rotates freely without any type of click or resistance, The timer is failed.
If it is the knob, you should be able to pry off the center piece with a very small screwdriver and check to see if the know is loose.
Maytag has used different types of mechanisms in their timers. So good investigation will help in the determination.
If the symptom you are experiencing is that the machine doesn't run. Other things can be the cause of that. An inoperative door switch will render a clothes dryer silent.
I hope this helps,
Good Luck,
Mark

The knob on my kenmore elite won't move the timer.


The knob itself turns the switch on . The skirt move the timer position. Try turning the skirt. You probably have a broken knob. On these the knob is held in place with a plastic rod inserted into it all the way. This spreads the tip and retains the knob. To get the knob off to yank out the skirt for a look see you need to pull that rod out a tad to release the knob. 88be11a.jpgThat shaft has a rounded end on it that spreads out and locks the knob on. Clever ain't it? These timers are cheaply made, if you cannot find fault with the knob or the skirt then you is gonna need a timer.

GE WASHER MODEL #WBSR3140G0WW: TEETH ON CONTROL


I suspect that a mounting tab has broken off the timer. Take the four torx head screws off the back edge of the top of the washer and open up the backsplash to confirm this. I manufacture a make shift Z shaped metal part to hold the timer in place without having to replace the timer.

Kenmore Series 80 Washer timer knob spins


Something in the timer came apart. Timer needs replaced. When in good working order, the timer should ONLY ever be turned clockwise..Reversing this could break it.

Removal of the timer knob.


you have two different knobs to replace?..is it the water level knob or the timer knob?
if its the timer knob you need to remove, look underneath the timer and you will find a black plastic pin depressed at the middle. pull it slowly for about 1/4 of an inch.

then you can remove the knob in the front of the timer switch.

in putting it back, install the knob first in the timer and then depressed that black plastic pin to lock the knob.

be carefull not to pull the plastic pin all the way out. it would be very hard to put it back in.


cheers,
