The replacement timer for my washer has a couple of small brackets moulded into the plastic that aren't on the original, in addition it has an attached metal plate on the side that goes up against the front control panel, also being the side that the control knob's shaft extends from. The timer, once installed didn't fit; the knob's shaft was way off center and the control panel couldn't close. I removed it and cut off the extra brackets and trimmed back the tabs that held on the metal plate. Success! Got it all back together but now the new knob WH01X10310 won't lock on. It appears that the spot on the shaft that the clip needs to secure is too far under the level of the face of the panel! Why did they add the plate to these replacement parts and can it be removed completely? Now that I've removed the tabs I can't send this timer back. What to do? Thanks.

Video will show how to properly install so maybe you can make an adjustment. It is difficult to follow what you are trying to splain. You can take some pics and upload to a different site and post a link to show us what you are having trouble with but maybe the video will help a little.

If you cannot upload pics on this site, then in order for anyone to view the pic you need to post a link. Dropbox or google pics, or whathaveya.

Alright. I've got to go out of town in the morning to work this election; I'll be back Wednesday. I'll read the instructions to learn how to post the pictures here when I get back. Thanks for your patience

Sounds to me like maybe someone sold you the wrong timer in a box marked Part number: WH12x10338

Part number: WH12x10338

.

 

Looking at any of the parts sites, a WH12x10338 timer doesn't have any metal plate or metal tabs, just the original cheap plastic tabs and timer body that breaks so you have to replace the timer or find another way to attach it solidly to the console, (I've done this using plumbers strapping).
