The two tabs that went under a stamped area of the frame were broken off the timer allowing it to move away from its mount when the switch was depressed. The new timer took care of the problem. A shame that a perfectly good timer had to be trashed because the plastic tabs broke off probably because of too much pressure exerted on the timer button.
Front panel came off fairly easy then part just unplugged from main unit. It was very easy to fix. My wife first found the part at a Sears repair store and then started searching for the part for a lower cost. She came upon Part Select and found the part was not only lower but also the shipping time was less. After reading all the positive reviews we decided to give this company a try. She ordered the part on a Sunday afternoon and it was at our front door by Tuesday afternoon. We were so thrilled with the service and speed from PartSelect that we saved in our favorites. Would recommend this company to anyone.
The original problem was thought to be the timer as the washer would never start the spin cycle. After ordering the timer, I discovered that the problem was actually caused by the fact that I forgot to turn the cold tap water back on after I cleaned the cold water filter screen. The spin cycle does not start until after the tub fills with cold water and rinses the clothes! DUH!However, while waiting for the new part to come in, I decided to open the old timer and inspect it. I noted that the switch contacts were pretty worn out and decided it would be best to replace the timer because of the age of the washer.This is what I did:1. Unplugged power from outlet.2. Removed four torx head crews from across the top back side of control panel.3. Tilt panel forward.4. Note that the timer knob is held to the timer shaft with a plastic clip. You need long thin needle nose pliers to remove this clip. It pulls out and away from the shaft. Once that is done, you can pull the knob off in two pieces.5. After the knob is off, you can disconnect the timer assembly using a nut driver. Remove the ground wire, disconnect the cable harness connector by squeezing in the locking tabs.6. Install the new timer with single sheet metal screw, and reconnect cable connector.7. Attach the ground wire.8. Replace control knob and retaining clip.9. Tilt back the control panel and replace the four torx head screws.10. Plug washer back in.11. MAKE SURE THE HOT and COLD WATER TAPS are TURNED ON. ;-)12. Test washer. DONE.
I took out the four screws with Allen wrench, and saw that the timer plastic had broken where the screw held it tight to panel. Then I went to Parts Select website, and entered model number. Immediately got schematics and part numbers needed to effect rescue mission. Ordered the parts with expedited delivery, and within 36 hours the parts were here and ready to install. Since the timer knob was already broken as well as the plastic around the hold-down screw, all that remained to do was disconnect the ground and the wiring harness. Old timer was out.New timer ground connected, wiring harness slid easily and hold-down screw connected with a nut-driver. Slip in the three metal flanges into the slots on top of the washer, tighten down the four allen head screws, move the washer back into place, plug it in and done. Less than 30 minutes total.
