Question Sears timer knob removal
Model Number: 110.82891110   Brand: Sears   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I need to know how to remove the timer knob. I did it once before, a long time ago, and don't recall it being difficult once I found out the secret. The timer knob just spins (both ways), the guard locks onto the dial but spins freely. The dial can be turned in order to select the cycle & start the washer. I thought the knob just unscrewed, as the replacement has threads. Do I have to take the back off? Don't recall doing that before...
Thanks for any help.

You should be able to push the knob in and then unscrew it. It has right hand thread. If that won't work then the timer is broken internally. I've only seen that about two times in the last 20 years.

Thanks for the encouraging word. I have tried pushing the knob in and unscrewing it (both directions) with no luck. The timer still works, but from what you are saying it sounds like the bolt or what it is connected to is broken inside the timer, right? Which means a whole timer replacement? Is that difficult for a diyer? Thanks in advance for your help. (FYI I am relatively handy despite my user name!)

Washer timer replacement is one of the easiest repairs. On this model there are two screws that you remove, then the control panel can be lifted up and swung backwards (it has its own hinges). You may have to try and hold onto the timer shaft with a pair of pliers so that you can get the knob off. Then under the knob and dial you will find two more screws. After the timer is free of the control panel, just press the release on the wiring harness plug and pull it straight off the timer. Reverse to reassemble. Good luck.
