How easy/hard is it install a new timer unit into a kitchenaid washer built in 8/05?
Answer Hi Mike. The mechanical timer part # is 3955337. Unplug washer. Remove the 2- front screws on the lower corners of the control panel. Flip the control panel fwd, up and flip backwards so you can access parts. Slide a long thin blade in the back of the timer shaft notch given as to keep it held while removing the knob. Remove the Knob and skirt. remove any screws from either the front or the back of the timer holding it onto the inner control panel. Then lift up with a pick tool on the leading finger tab. Slide the timer the opposite direction and it will come out of the panel guide holes. Remove the small 2- wire lead to the timer motor and finally the wire harness to the timer. Reassemble in reverse. Thank you.
