I unplugged the washer from the outlet. I pulled out the timer knob and used needle nose pliers to remove the clip from the rear of the knob. I removed the old knob and inspected it. Sure enough, the teeth that engage the timer were worn down to the point where they no longer would engage and turn the timer. I installed the new knob and ghen installed the new clip to secure it to the timer. I plugged the power cord in and tested the washer.....done deal!!!! Parts Select made this job easy and saved me a lot of money by not having to call a service company. The part arrived in two days, it was the exact replacement part, it was good quality. I will do business with them the next time I need to repair an appliance. Great service, great web site.
