Default How to remove the timer from a Maytag
Model Number: NAV3200AWW   Brand: Maytag   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


First, the Sears repairman says: "can't do anything if you have no model number". Label in the back is old and he can't decipher it. I take the last numbers/letters shown and contact Maytag. They help along with my research on the net I figure it is a NAV3200AWW Atlantis. Then I call the repair guy again he comes, does his 5 minute check and tells me, "It is the timer and that is going to cost you $185 for the part alone". He proceeds to recommend that I get rid of it and buy a new machine. Unfortunately, I had already checked MaytagParts.com and saw the timer going for $57. Now, I consider myself mechanically inclined being that I have worked in the plumbing field for years. I proceeded to try to remove the timer...but it just won't come out! I am trying to pull the timer from the control knob. Do I need a special tool? Should I break it and buy a new Control Knob/Timer? Don't tell me I need a professional to do this.

Default Removing timer control knob

Ok, I figured from reading stuff on the internet that my Maytag SAV4655EWW, which was not draining the rinse water but would start up again after sitting a spell, was sick due to a timer malfunction. Order the part but the hardest thing was to figure how to take the knob off. Had read that in the back of the timer, there was a plastic stem to pull out. One was not there! Other models had hidden pins. Mine did not. So I thought it out blocking out what I was told. Pried off the gray top cover to the knob. That revealed a plastic mushroom stem inserted into the center of the knob. Pried that off and the whole assembly came free. Push the timer off its attachments - to the left - and off it came. Removed the old timer and secured the new one in its place. Reassembled the knob and no more problems.

Hope this helps.

The complete model number of the washer might help others to help you.

Default Knob removal issue

Ok, have you removed the top control panel so that you can see the timer, which is attached to the knob? If the back of the timer has a plastic stem inserted in the center hole, then you need to pry this up as this holds the exterior part of the knob in place. See this website on a photo and description of that.

Older Maytag timer knob doesn't pop in every time - Appliance Blog Repair Forums


It maybe that your model does not utilize the above method. It may use this more standard approach, which is to have a slim cotter pin holding the knob pieces in place. So it's a question of carefully inspecting for the insert pin and sliding it out. See below.
How to Remove The Timer Knob - Appliance Blog Repair Forums

As I said, in my Maytag, which is about 5-6 years old, the two standard approaches above just did not apply. So I pried off the gray round cover tab. Once this center tab or cover was lifted off, I saw how there was a plastic stem inserted in the middle of the knob. This inserted stem, as forced in, provided the needed tension to keep the rings in place on the master stem of the knob. Once this was pried off, the knob assembly slipped off and there was no more tension holding the knob in place as it was planted in the timer. Timer free, unplugged it from the terminal switch. Replaced the timer and plugged in the switch; reassembled knob - and turn on the washer!
