Washer stopping during cycles
First, I removed the control knob by pulling it out and then used needle nosed pliers to pull the plastic retainer clip from the back side of the knob and then slid it off. I then removed the large dial knob by simply pulling it off. Next, I removed the 4 torx head screws holding on the front control panel and the whole panel came off (the 4 screws are on the top side of the panel towards the rear). I then removed the connector block from the timer mechanism and then removed the single hex nut screw which holds the timer in place. There are two plastic tabs on the bottom of the timer which fit into slots on the panel. You can simply lift the old timer mechanism out by pulling it up and out. The new timer is installed by doing this in reverse. You then tighten the hex screw and then put the connector back on the new timer. You can then put the panel back in place and put back the 4 screws taken out earlier. Next, you push the indicator dial onto the timer shaft (lining up the notch in the dial with the tab on the timer shaft). Finally, you pull the retainer clip on the control knob partially out, push the knob on the timer shaft and then using a screwdriver, push the retainer clip into place and then push the control knob all the way onto the timer shaft.
