I need to replace the timer on this dryer. I have removed the front panel down, but I do not see how the timer comes off so it can be replaced. Is there a video to help me?
Answer Hello Sue. Here are the instructions from the manufacture on how to remove the timer, you will install in reverse order. Thanks! 1. Disconnect power to the appliance. 2. Carefully lift the timer knob and dial off the timer shaft by pulling the knob away from the face of the control console. 3. Remove the two timer mounting screws (now exposed on the control console) when the timer dial skirt is removed. 4. Disengage the console assembly from the top cover and roll forward.
How do I replace the timer on a Maytag MDG6400AWW?
To change out the timer on the unit you will need to access the control panel. There will be 3 screws across the top back that you will remove and roll the control panel forward. Once you have the back of the timer exposed there is a hole in the center with a post in it. Lift the post out and you will be able to remove the timer knob and skirt. Take out the screw holding the timer in place and slide to the left. Disconnect the harness and install the new timer and reassemble. When you get the timer knob on you will push the post back into the hole.
