Remove the timer control knob cap with a small flat head screw driver on either side of the cap, between the cap and the rubber ring (this took a while to figure out, but it's easy once you do) then remove the knob. Remove 3 T15 hex screws on top of control panel, tilt top of panel toward you and lift up. Remove the electrical connector (this was difficult, you have to release the lock and rock the connector at the same time). Push down on the locking tabs at the feet of the timer assembly and slide to remove. Reverse these directions to install new timer. Unfortunately this did not fix my problem because the timer still won't advance. I'm replacing the sensor assembly next. I'll let you know if that works.
0. Disconnected the dryer power supply1. Removed the control panel (3 screws, star bit)2. Detached the electric power supply cords from the timer assembly (took a bit of easing back and forth - do not pull by the electric cords, pull the socket itself)3. Timer assembly eased off subsequently (held in place by three unscrewed receptacles)4. Installed the new timer assembly, plugged back the supply cords, and installed the new timer knob, skirt and chrome cap.They don't build Maytag equipment as they used to. We bought a fridge, washer and dryer 6 years ago - all three of them have had component, part stress and/or electronic sensor failures :-(
The two parts purchased were the corrects parts needed to do the job. (There's always a first time for everything!) When the plastic timer knob broke away from the timer stem, it left the silver timer cap's locking pin embedded in the timer stem. I could not remove the broken remains of the knob while the broken off pin was still in place. And it was impossible to grip the pin with pliers or tweezers without damaging the timer stem. As a solution I grabbed my whole-house vacuum cleaner hose and sucked the broken pin out of the timer stem. Total time of repair was about 20 minutes not including the two-hour brainstorming time-out that led me to the vacuum cleaner solution.
My dryer timer's internal gears were broken. Timer Cap also was broken. I opened the front face plate by removing the three screws on top and disconnecting the wiring harness. Took me 10 minutes to replace. I do very very little shopping online, I am VERY impressed with the availability of parts from partselect and am also impressed with the shipping turnaround. I thought I needed a timer knob but then realized I didn't need it and canceled the order, and I was refunded in two days. I am so happy with the way the process went I wish partselect dealt with other products besides appliances.
simply replaced the timer.thank you for perfect service
I removed the silver cap and then removed the knob itself. I replaced the knob with the new part and also the silver cap with the part. The job was complete.
pop cap on knob
Removed Screws on panel, pluged new timer into wire replace panel, but on new knob and cap and it was ready to go.
