How to replace part number 37929 timer on Amana washer?

Replacing part number 37929, which is the timer assembly, on an Amana washer involves accessing the control panel and carefully following the necessary steps. Here's a general guide to help you through the process: 1. Safety First: Unplug the washer from the power source to ensure your safety while working on the appliance. 2. Access the Control Panel: Depending on the model of your Amana washer, you'll need to remove the top or rear panel to access the control panel area where the timer is located. Consult the user manual for specific instructions on accessing the control panel for your washer. 3. Remove the Knobs: If there are knobs on the timer, gently pull them off to expose the screws or clips that secure the timer to the control panel. 4. Release the Timer Mounting: Depending on the design, you might need to remove screws, clips, or brackets that secure the timer assembly to the control panel. Carefully detach these fasteners, taking note of their positions for reassembly. 5. Disconnect Wiring: Take a picture or make a diagram of the wiring connections on the old timer to ensure proper reconnection. Carefully disconnect the wiring harnesses from the old timer. You might need to use pliers or a flat-head screwdriver to release any locking tabs. 6. Remove the Old Timer: Once the wiring is disconnected, gently remove the old timer assembly from the control panel. 7. Install the New Timer: Position the new timer assembly in the same location as the old one. Make sure the mounting holes align with the fasteners you removed earlier. 8. Reconnect Wiring: Attach the wiring harnesses to the corresponding terminals on the new timer. Make sure the connections are secure and match your reference diagram or picture. 9. Secure the New Timer: Reattach the screws, clips, or brackets that secure the new timer assembly to the control panel. 10. Replace Knobs: Slide the knobs back onto the timer shafts if applicable. 11. Reassemble the Washer: Put the control panel cover back in place and secure it with the appropriate screws. 12. Plug In the Washer: Plug the washer back into the power source. 13. Test the Timer: Turn on the washer and run a test cycle to ensure that the new timer assembly is functioning properly. Always refer to the user manual that came with your Amana washer for specific instructions and diagrams. If you're unsure about any step or encounter difficulties, consider seeking assistance from Amana's customer support or a professional appliance technician. Additionally, working with washer components can be complex, so if you're not comfortable with the process, it's recommended to seek professional help to ensure a safe and successful timer replacement.
