Question:

Water runs in but the tub does not fill up. Can you help?

Victoria
Answer:

Hello Victoria, Thanks for your question. There are a few different parts you may wish to test with a multimeter for electrical continuity in this situation. Check the water inlet valve, the lid switch, the selector switch & water temperature switch, the water level pressure switch, and examine the inlet hoses for any signs of damage. If all of these are intact, the timer could be at fault. This article on our website has further details that may be of assistance: https://www.partselect.com/Repair/Washer/Not-Filling-With-Water/ I hope this helps.

Knob would not engage, had to manually turn outer ring to start washer.

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.

Timer on the washing machine wasn't working properly. Just spinning around not catching to set wash cycle

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.

Gear teeth stripped out on both timer knob & timer.

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.

Dial spins too freely

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!

It appears the machine came with the wrong washer control knob.

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 knob broke off. We glued it on but it still didnt work right.We still had to manually turn the dial. When I saw this site it showed a diagram and I figured out what was wrong.

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!!

Timer knob was broken and it was falling down from center

First I unplugged the washer and removed the old knob and compression ring hoping that the new ones would be centered. Everything still dropped, so I opened up the panel from the back and found that a very thin plastic piece which held the knob and associated timer behind it in place was broken on one side. I taped the timer in place with duct tape, then made a little support out of some stiff cardboard and taped that underneath the time to support it from below. Then I closed the panel back up and applied the new ring, knob, and clip. So far, everything is working fine! The new knob came with a clip, so I have an extra clip... This was not really very hard, but I had to figure out the additional steps to take because of the broken plastic inside.
