The timer knob clip on your washing machine connects the timer knob to the control panel. If your timer knob is damaged or will not stay in place, you may need to replace the clip. If the timer does not advance or the washing machine will not start, this may also be a symptom of a damaged timer knob clip. This part is clear plastic and is about 1 inch in size. Many of our customers have rated this repair as easy, and the only tools you may require are a set of needle-nose pliers. This is an OEM part sourced directly from the manufacturer.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Used a screw driver and needle nose pliers to remove clip from behind the timer knob. Took 2 minutes to remove clip, i admit it was a little tricky but once you get a grip on the clip very easily removed. Replaced with new knob, old knob gear was completley stripped . put the new clip on and presto, Like brand new.A normal service call would of ran me 45.00 just to tell me what was wrong with the machine.

I found Partselect and searched for what I needed. Wasn't quite sure I had the right timer, so I called and gave them the model number and they did a search and found the right one. I ordered the part online and a few days later the parts were delivered to me. The timer fit right in and looked just like the origninal. Within 30 mins. washer was back in service. Another washer we have on the property wasn't agitating correctly. After taking off the agitator ( by pulling straight up from the bottom ) I found that the coggs on the agitator hub were all worn out. I removed the center screw from the shaft and pulled the old hub off. Installed the new one ordered from Partselect and washwer was back up and running in no time.
All I had to do was pull out the broken timer dial assembly and push in the new one.
remove back screws to control panel. unplug timer. pull bad timer out. snap new timer in plug in connector. reattach screws to control panel. put knob on timer
Removed timer knob clip and installed new dial and timer knob
Super EZ repair. The replacement parts were spot on perfect. I removed 3 screws, slid the panel off, removed a wiring harness, the reversed the procedure. I used a set of needle nose pliers to slip the locking ring on the knob, and Bob's your uncle, all done.
took the needle nose pliers and removed the timer knob clip from the back of the control knob. Removed the control knob and the dial with compression ring. Installed the new dial compression ring and pushed the control knob on. Note: the new control knob comes with the clip allready on the back of the control knob. Took me about 3 minutes to replace.
I damaged the timer gears trying to figure out the washer control knob. I ordered all necessary parts. It now appears the knob that came on the machine had different gear hobs than the timer. I replaced the timer. The dial then easily slipped on. Then the control knob with the clip attached pushed on to the timer. I had an extra timer knob clip. It was just 93cents so I may need it later. It works better now than it did new.
The grooves on the bottom of the control knob were worn away. I just pushed the timer knob clip off of the underside of the knob, removed it from the washer and put the new knob on and put the clip back on. It was a piece of cake!
I watched the video, used a needle nosed pliers to pull the clip off the knob and just pushed the new knob and clip on.
After viewing the brief video supplied by you,it was a simple five minute fix.
There is nothing to tell really. Took the setting knob off, put the new knob on. That was it, took all of five minutes.
Just took the dail off and put the knob on and slid the clip on. It was harder to take the glue off that we put on the knob!!
Used a bent paper clip to hook/remove the old plastic Timer Knob Clip, pulled off Control Knob and Dial. The dial was ok but was afraid it may have been stripped also.I then replaced them and used needle nose pliers to replace Timer Knob Clip. I always order extra clips because they are cheap and have learned a long time ago nothing ALWAYS goes perfectly and it was cheap plastic and sure as you know what I would have broken it and had to order another. Now I have a spare!
we took off the old control knob-pulls off-then replaced the plastic clip and popped it back on-now the teeth can move the knob to start the washer
