to put knob back on timmer, there is a green strip in the middle between the locking clips. do i take out or push it in? washer
Answer Alfred, Yes, you need to partially extract the "green" colored retainer pin. You'll need to use a small flat blade screwdriver, On the back of the timer you'll insert the end of the screwdriver into the "D" shaped opening and pry out on the "green" colored shaft. You'll need to withdraw it appeoximately 3/8 to 1/2 inch. Install the knob on the front timer shaft, then press the green retainer back into it's original position.
The washer will not go to fast spin would this be the timer causing this problem?
Answer Hello Earl,
It is more probable the either the lid switch 12001187 or the unit isn't draining the water out sufficiently 35-6780. Another common failure common in this design is the thrust bearing kit 12002213. It releases the brake so the tub can get up to full speed. The timer shouldn't play a part in this instance.
Is there a special tool used to compress the plastic tangs on the timer stem? Thanks in advance. Ray
Answer Ray, No there is no special tool needed, just a small flat blade screwdriver. You will need to access the backside of the timer assembly, by removing the metal control console back panel. In the larger opening on the left side of the timer back, you should notice a "D" shapeed insert, You will insert the screwdriver blade into the flat area and carefully pry out on the insert(approximately 3/8 to 1/2 inch, and pull out on the timer dial knob at the same time. Reverse the process to install the knob on the new timer. Good Luck and Thanks
