Hello,

I will be happy to help you out. Can I get the model number to your machine.

Do you have the new timer?

Hello,

I believe on your model, you are going to need a small flat head screwdriver. On the back side of the timer, use the screwdriver to pull the center post out of the timer. I should only move about a quarter of an inch. Picture it like you are pulling the shaft out of the know from the back side. Once you move the shaft about a quarter of an inch, it should release the knob from the timer shaft.

Give this a shot and let me know how you make out.

It doesn't move at all.

Just got it figure out and removed. There in a different colored pastic cog assembly the work as a presser point for the know and shaft. You must move this all the way out and grip the shaft and unscrew the knob. Be careful tho as there is a small pin running thru the middle of the shaft that the cog covers up. Don't lose it as it's very thin.

Thank you
