I will be happy to help you out. Can I get the model number to your machine.
Do you have the new timer?

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.
