In order to replace my Maytag's timer part, how to I open the top part of the machine to replace this timer part. Appreciate your response. Thank you, Mr. Terrones.
Answer Hello Mr. Terrones. There are clips under each corner of the control panel assembly that need to be pushed in, with a straight blade, to release the panel. Hope this helps.

I replaced the timer switch, but the new timer still stops between rinse and spin. I replaced the timer because it would not advance. Any suggestions? By the way I replaced it exactly how the video illustrated.
Answer Ben, Check the lid switch 8318084 circuit and wiring to the timer. The lid switch has to have a closed circuit to the timer in order for the washer to drain and spin. If the lid switch is OK, check the wiring to the timer from the load sensing switch W10248240 or replace the switch. The switch is the weakest link in the system, and if it doesn't send the signal to the timer delay motor, the washer will stop.
The auto fill feature is not working on the normal cycle. The machine fills up all the way no mater how it is loaded. I replaced the temperature switch with no change. The other cycles seem to work fine. Any suggestions?
You will want to check the pressure hose that comes off the temperature switch and make sure that there are no clogs in the tube or the air dome to make sure that it is not clogged. If these check ok then the most likely issue will be the flowmeter W10176591
In your response to Tommy's problem regarding the tube which is connected to the sensing or temperature switch (part no. w10248240). You suggested blowing into the tube. I blew into it and this worked once before however this problem has recurred and there appears to be an obstruction when I blow in it. I do not see any kinks. The tube appears to directed to the bottom right side of the washer. How do I get at the other end of the tube to see if the tube has a kink in it. Thanks
Answer Hello Rick,
This hose goes to the pressure chamber on the side of the outer tub. You cannot access the inside of the chamber but if you pull the inner tub you can access the opening to the other side of the chamber. To get to the outer part of the outer tub you need to open the control panel and remove the goldtone clips that retain the cabinet to the frame. Un-plug the lid switch and set the cabinet aside. You can then view the pressure switch hose and the pressure chamber.
What are your thoughts of using new versus rebuilt timer units?
Answer Hello Rick. You should always use new parts vs. rebuilt if they are available.
