Timer Knob Removal
I need to replace the time mechanism on my Maytag washing machine. The washer works, but I have to manually advance the timer through the cycles. My replacement part has just been delivered, but I am unsure what is the best way of removing the timer knobs without breaking anything. I have read similar posts, but I am not sure that they apply to my particular model. (HAV4657EWW)

P.S. I ordered the part on Monday afternoon and received it on Thursday afternoon. The ordering and shipping services have been quick, easy and efficient.

Open the control panel and look at the timer. There is a plastic plug in the center of the timer shaft. Using a small screwdriver or similar tool, pry it out about 3/4 inch. You can now pull the knob off. Once it's off, you'll see how this works.

Awesome tip! I would have never figured that one out. I have the replacement part in hand and I was able to see how your tip works.
