This appliance is about 2 years old, its starting to skip thru the spin cycle(not spin just click) after rinse. Do you think its in the timer? I'm thinking so because all the other functions are working flawless..

Hi Edward, Thank you for your question. I would suggest checking to see if your belt has worn down before replacing your timer. I would also suggest testing your lock switch as well. Sometimes this part will fail and the machine will think that the door is open and thus not go into the spin cycle at all. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

I think i need to replace this part. I have photos i can send to you. The black plastic piece is broke off inside when i took the knob off. I thought it was the knob till I took it off. I just want to be sure. Why would they put a plastic piece there? Please let me know so i can get the part ordered. I can send you photos also so you can see what is broke.


Hi Anne, Thank you for your inquiry. If the shaft that your knob slips on to on this timer is broken off, then this would be the part that you would need to replace. If that part is fine, it would be your knob that you would want to replace. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

The dial under the knob that selects the washer settings stopped turning with the knob after just a few weeks

I had our reliable handyman take a stab at it after he determined what the issue was, and after we'd already tried a new knob and a new clip. Here's what he described as the issue: "Bottom line :the gears are to weak to take any force and break off. They need to be made of a strong metal not plastic. I also believe that the timer gear was binding and put more force on the gears."
