Washing machine timer


What is the proper way to replace the timer on my Whirlpool washing machine, model #lsq9564jq0, I don't want to make the situation worse.

Try the appliance section or approach it like you did when you were a kid and took your bike apart.

All I can offer is, unplug it first.

First, you need to look up the model number to get the part number. Once you get the new timer, you will find that all connections are quick-connect and you can easily replace it if you take one wire at a time.
There are lots of wires to be disconnected and reconnected, so the best option is to have both timers side by side, and pull one wire off the old, and onto the new at a time. That way, you know that you are getting it right.

There may also be several large plastic connectors on the timer, instead of simple quick-connect lugs. I haven't replaced one in a long time, and they all used the quick-connects before computers took over. If yours is CPU based, then it will most likely be plastic multiple pin connectors, and your timer will be much more expensive than the old mechanical ones. I used to buy the timers for around $50.

And of course; make sure the machine is unplugged before you start!

By the looks on the drawing, it looks like it's just a harness that's plugged in.

Don't get cut on sheet metal edges. Don't chip the enamel.

Good advice! There's so much sharp metal in those appliances. I got cut while replacing the belt in a dryer.
