CustomerCarolyn from Everett WA

The dryer wouldn't start on a regular basis.

I first unplugged the dryer from the wall socket. Then I removed the timer knob by first folding back the rubbery edge with my finger and then popping out the metalic center piece with a flat screwdriver. To remove the knob itself I used needle nose plyers (although just any two pointy objects like pens would work) and pushed the center clip together which releases the knob from the part to be replaced. This clip is the area that sticks out on the new part and reaches from inside the back of the panel to the knob on the front. The circular covering/skirt piece below this just lifted out. I then removed the three screws from the top back of the control panel of the dryer and tilted the panel forward to access the inside. The part being replaced is held in place in three areas. Push down on the plastic piece to then allow the part to be slid to the left and out from under the two other pieces holding it in place. Unplug the wiring by releasing the black housing/socket by lifting it over the plastic lip holding it in place with the assistance of a screwdriver. Mine was really hard to detach but eventually it came off. Don't pull on the individual wires.
Attach the new part to the wires and install it by doing the reverse of the instructions used to get the old one out.
I'm a housewife in my mid 40's with NO experience with this sort of thing. This was really easy and the dryer starts every time now!

Timer would not allow the dryer to be started.

I had to remove the timer knob and the front of the dryer control panel. Once inside, there was only one plug. I unplugged the original timer and replaced it with the new timer. I replaced the plug, slide the timer back into place. I then closed the front of the control panel and replaced the timer knob. Once that was done, voila the job was complete.

CustomerAlbert from Alger MI

Drying timer won't advance

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.

Broken plastic twirl knob shaft on timer assembly and chrome timer cap

0. Disconnected the dryer power supply
1. 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 :-(

CustomerRa from Saugus MA

Dryer timer has broken gears.

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.

CustomerDonald from Branchville NJ

Moving the dryer over the past 6 years to clean around moved the vent to cause a short to cause the timer to blow.

FIRST I HAD TO CALL IN A MAYTAG REPAIR MAN TO FIND OUT WHERE THE SHORT WAS. HE DID NOT HAVED THE TIMER IN STOCK AND SAID IT MAY TAKE A FEW DAYS PLUS ANOTHER CHARGE. I HAD HIM REPAIR THE SHORT AND ORDERD THE PART THROUGH YOUR SERVICE. IT CAME IN TWO DAYS AND WITHIN 5 MINUTES I HAD IT INSTALLED AND THE DRYER RUNNING. THE SERVICE CALL COST ME $80. THE PART WAS $80.00 SO I SAVED THE SECOND COST OF A SERVICE CALL. PS IF I HAD THE NERVE I WOULD HAVE TAKEN THE DRYER APART TO FIND THE SHORT. BUT.............. MY EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR COMPANY WAS 5 STAR THANKS FOR YOUR HELP. DON BRANCHVILLE NJ

My timer knob and dryer knob broke on myd

I went to maytag website and ordered the parts it was so nice all I did was enter model number and it gave me easy interactions to order parts I needed. I repaired it myself with parts I ordered and with the instructions it came with it guided me step by step and the best part is I saved money on paying someone to do the labor!!!!

Would not turn on.

There are 3 screws that hold the control panel on. Then you unplug the bad timer and slide out. Slide in new timer and plug it in. Put the control panel back on in less than 10 min.

Timer not working properly

Unplug dryer. First I removed timer knob( looks like one piece but it's actually two, the knob and the knob cap which will easily pry off). Then remove the three screws from top of control panel, the whole panel can then be tilted foward for timer removal. Timer can then be removed by sliding it to the left(when standing in front of dryer). Finally unplug connector from timer. Install in reverse order.

Broken timer / knob

Procedure is intuitive for the most part. Main thing to remember is always disconnect AC power (unplug it) to any appliance before performing repairs on it! There are already some very detailed step-by-step procedures listed here, so no need to elaborate.
