I have a Frigidaire front load washer FWT449GFS2. My knob for my dial timer popped off.  The tips of little prongs that hold the knob on all broke.  so I have to replace the dial timer assembly.

Accordnig to Frigidaire.com this is  part # 131716300 Dial-timer-white.  According to Parts Detective it is this Timer Knob assembly.  You can see the little arms coming up over the lip of the knob. Those arms broke.

So how do I replace this assemply.  How do I remove the front cover?  (By the way the washer is underneath my dryer)

Dryer has to come down :yikes: . At the bottom front of the dryer, there should be two screw covers. Pop them out and remove the screws, then the dryer can be lifted off  (as long as you remember to disconnect the vent plus any electricity (and maybe gas) to the dryer. then you can get right to the timer.

The dryer is not attached to the washer, just sitting on it.

Once the dryer is off, everything is exposed - there is no "top" on the washer with the dryer removed.

As for the console, I think you have to remove the knobs, remove the dispenser drawer and undo some screws. One word of caution - Friggidaire use a lot of "Robertson" screws, they have a square cut-out in the head. They look like they can be opened with a Philips - do not succumb to the temptation or you will regret it! Get the right tool.

I've not made myself clear.  I had a separate dryer and separate washer.  I simply placed one top of the other.  The top of the washer was never removed when the dryer was placed on top of it.  So how do I remove the washer top?

Ah...remove four screws at the back of the washer top - they're the "Robertson" type screws I mentioned earlier.
