I did some diagnosis and figured out that there is an intermittent fault in the timer on my washing machine. I procured a new timer to replace the dishonorable one, however after asking nicely, the old timer is refusing to leave to make room for its heir.

What is the best way to remove the cap / knob from the timer so the timer can be removed. (Aside from the hammer approach which I am very capable of but I do need to keep the dial for use with the replacement timer.)

The knob itself consists of an outer ring and an inner knob which spins freeley when pulled out (Washer ON position) and turns the skirt when it is pushed in (Washer OFF position). If a picture would help, it can be supplied.

Washing machine model is: Crosley CW22B7V (top-loader).

Thanks!

Here is a picture of the dial if that helps. I'm ready to assault it with vise-grips and a screwdriver but I'm very open to suggestions first.

This is a Maytag washer so I do not know about how to get this off but there is a trick.  Wait for someone who knows to help you...;)

Got it. Push the center knob in, then turn counterclockwise and it will come off. I think I tried every other approach but that one.

Thanks.

Well, here's a picture of your knob from behind (if you'll pardon the expression :shock:)

Appears to be nothing more sinister than unscrewing anti-clockwise with the knob pushed in.

Mad Mac....Pray to God he's out there....somewhere.

I had already typed that out when I thought this might be a Whirlpool washer but decided to look before posting it to see who made this washer.

Yea, I did alot of pulling and turning but no pushing. Now I remember why you can only advance the dial clockwise. (In my research I also learned the trick for the newer Maytags which is information I will probably never require.)

My wife has all the loads lined up in the hall and the first one is already in the washer. (And the washer agitates now...the clothing and not the owners)
