Hi , what would be the part # for the timer , my timer as 0278A GE 175D5749POO5 M298 KINGSTON 71595--A00498
Answer Hello Bill,
I'm sure we can help you but we need you to re-post with the model number off of the washers' I.D. tag. This way we can supply you with the correct part number.
I have a 15 year old GE Hotpoint washer. The control knob just spins but does not engage. The teeth on the timer seem to be okay. I can use the washer by rotating the timer with a pliers. When I installed a new knob, it did not seem to engage. With this model do I need to purchase the compression ring also? It is part #6 in the manual. And if so, where exactly does this compression ring go? Thanks so much Bill K
Answer Hello Bill,
The compression ring goes around the part of the timer knob that slips onto the timer. This part is basically a reinforcement for the plastic part of the knob, to make it strong enough to withstand the force that is applied when turning the timer mechanism. You should look closely at the geared mechanism on the front of the timer. If the timer is binding, the geared mechanism will begin to strip. When this occurs, if the timer knob is replaced it will destroy the new knob in a very short time.
Washer will not advance through the cycles. Could this be the timer unit?
Answer Hello Bob. If you can manually advance the timer on the washer and it works, but does not on it's own, you will need to replace the timer WH12X10338.
How do I remove the timer knob?
Answer Hello Bill. Pull out on the knob. On the back of the knob, there is a small plastic clip. You will need to use a pick tool or an ice pick and pull the clip from the knob. Once you pull out the clip, the knob pulls off the timer WH12X10338 shaft.
