Kenmore washer model(NNN) NNN-NNNN
The 2 screws holding the timer to the console came out. How do I put them back in? It seems I need to remove the timer knob but can't figure out how to do that!

Open the lid, look at the model number directly below the lower edge of the lid on the frame. Thanks.

There is a box containing:


110. (NNN) NNN-NNNN/p>

I've tried to duplicate the spacing. The numbers beginning with 4 are larger than the 110. number.

If it helps, it also says "Type 111"' and the serial no. is CF(NNN) NNN-NNNN

Ok, is this the model tag under the lid. I'm asking because that model number does not come up on Sears site. The serial number looks right. 1996 model built in the 34th week of the year. Are you in the USA or elsewhere?


Usually however, if you push the timer knob in, then turn it counterclockwise, it should spin free of the shaft. Then the indicator skirt can be pried off.

I am in Canada. Purchased the machine in Sept. 1996.
Very good. That makes sense. Anyway, most of these Kenmore Washers built by whirlpool (like yours) have a threaded timer shaft. If you push the knob in (like you've turned the machine off) and turn counterclockwise, it should unthread from the shaft.

I got the knob and skirt off - looks like I'm okay now. Thanks so much!


You're quite welcome. I figured the unit was Canadian since it didn't come up on the Sears US site. Glad I helped you out. Thanks for your question :)
