Our washing machine had gotten stuck in the agitation cycle several times....it wouldn't cycle out of either wash or rinse, and was clogged with suds. Turns out we were using the wrong detergent, one recommended only for front-loading high efficiency washers. I removed knobs and front panel, then the two screws holding the timer mechanism in. Although it looked nearly new, clearly it didn't work. The replacement part arrived in two days, and was easy to install.- 5 screws holding the panel, and 2 on the timer. tested the washer today, and it worked perfectly.
