control panel. how do I remove the dial and realign? Thanks
Answer Hello Marty. You will need to hold and pull the clip in the center of the back of the timer, and pull the knob off the shaft. Here is a link to the picture of the back of the timer W10177827. Once the knob is removed, you can remove the dial 8566018. Hope this helps.
JUST PURCHASED THE WASHER NIGHT FOR LAST. THEY ARE A COUPLE YEARS OLD I WAS TOLD. TURNED THE KNOB TO SET TIMER AND IT STRIPPED ON. IT WILL PULL OUT TO RUN BUT CAN'T TURN IT TO WHERE I NEED IT. WHICH PART DO I NEED?
Answer Tad, Re check and make sure the knob is not cracked or stressed. Then remove the knob and re check and make sure the knob is not partially pulled off the timer shaft. Heres some help: "1. Remove the two Phillips-head screws securing the front corners of the console to the washer top. 2. Tip the console back on the hinges that secure the top of the console to the washer back. Removing the Timer There are two types of timers. One can be identified by a plastic body. The other has a metal body. Plastic Body NOTE: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE TIMER KNOB BY PULLING FROM THE FRONT. Doing so will damage the split shaft and require replacing the entire timer assembly. 1. To remove the timer knob, push the knob in from the front. 2. At the back of the timer, pull the black tab out approximately 3/16", then pull the timer knob off the shaft. 3. Slide the timer dial from the timer hub. 4. Unplug the wiring harness connector from the timer assembly terminals. 5. Remove the one (1) Hex-head screw securing the left side of the timer assembly to the console mounting plate. Then lift the left side and slide the tabs at the right side of the timer assembly from the console mounting plate." Good Luck and Thanks
Can the dial be superglued if broken?
