First I went to the Whirlpool site and downloaded the illustrated parts list for this model (a PDF file).Seeing the part number, I then ordered the part from PartSelect.com.While waiting for the part I tried to research how to remove the timer knob, but none of the online help I found was correct- the knob does not unscrew, but is held in place by a black plastic "keeper" on the back of the timer. The removal instructions are printed on the timer.When the timer arrived I unscrewed the 2 screws at the back and edge of the console panel. Then the panel lifts up and out, exposing the timer. I released the knob, then removed a small screw beneath the knob that holds the timer. Then I unplugged the wiring harness from the timer and removed it. I then reversed these procedures and installed the new timer.As it turned out, the problem was not with the timer at all, but rather a defective lid switch, which is also located under the console panel.Once I replaced the lid switch (very easy), the washer worked perfectly again.Despite my imperfect initial diagnosis, a very satisfying experience.Thanks for the great service.Rick

I went on the internet check out a couple of videos on You Tube on changing out a Whirlpool Washing Machine Timer switch, watched it and did what they did on the video and found out it was real easy to do, and I had no problems at all.I think any DIY person could do it with little or no problems plus it didn't take me but about 20-25 min. to change out the Timer Switch,plus you could save yourself a lot money on a service call.
I was looking for a repairman when I found your excellent website. Even with the advice from your share the stories it took almost an hour to get the control panel off the top of the machine. There were 2 sets of 2 screws and when I finally realized what sliding the panel forward toward the front of the machine meant it came right off. When I first replaced the lid switch (easy once the control panel was open) the machine still wouldn't cycle. My choice was replace the timer, call a repairman or buy a new machine. Replacing the timer was easy with the control panel already open but I had to buy a 1/4 and 3/16 hex nut driver to remove the timer. The whole repair including parts, shipping and tools cost $110. Without your diagrams and parts list I never would have had the guts to try this repair. Thanks.
Tried different cycles, none advanced. Went online to find exploded view of washer top for removal information. Remove power plug from outlet! Removed a few screws and bolts, pulled plugs and the knob. Look around further instructions were inside. Then removed existing timer for part number specifics. Checked online - timer costs were close but shipping varied quite a bit. PartSelect had the best value. Received package next day. Installed and running within a half hour.
I follow the instruction that I read online. I open the back of the panel by removing the four screws then I took of a small screw that is holding the timer in place. I unpluged the timer from the conector and reverse the whole process to put it back together. I had never done any of this stuff but thank to your help and the forum I was able to save a lot of money
Remove to screws from rear of control panel, remove the clock assemble, replace with the new one, and reinstall the control panel.
