Maytag washer timer replacement part

I have a Maytag close washer with a broken timer switch. I checked e-bay for a replacement under the part number 2-04454-2, and came up blank. Is there a different part number that superseded this timer number? Anyone have a source for the part? All help is apriciate. Earl.

Thanks for the help. On the electrical schematics it has the part # A-208 but nothing on the washer itself. Under Sears link that you gave me I get a ďWe're sorry. This item is no longer available.Ē But no picture to confirm itís the part I need. The part # they give is 204463 which also draws a blank on e-bay. I really donít want to buy a new washer, is there another part number that will work? Thanks, Earl.

Other times if you lift up the lid...you'll find the ID tag just below the bottom of the lid.

It looks like you may have a Maytag A-208 washer.
Links I left :
Timer is part # 204454

Do you realize that washer is over 30 years old

You had part number of 204463 but it should have been 204663. Not sure if that's a complete timer or just motor.
With the top link you must enter timer to refine your search.

Hey guys, thanks for the help. Just my luck with 662 Maytag timers coming up on an e-bay search only one will fit my machine and it cost 130 bucks as compared to the rest, mostly costing 30 bucks or less. Thatís defiantly the part. And yes, I know the washer is over 30, probably original to the house (circa 1978). Am hoping I can give it another 30 years but it might be time to replace it. Earl.

Aren't there still places that will rebuild timers? I did it a while back for my then MIL. Believe it or not some sort of little pin had worn down and I used one of those plastic parts inside a typical US Gov ballpoint to repair it. Took about 20 min and some epoxy. Luckily the motor and gears still worked. Lasted for at least the 5 yrs we were married.

Should be interesting if it doesnít work out. I offered the e-bay guy 60 bucks for his timer, if he doesnít take it, then timer surgery. If I can replace the timer with a new one I ought to get another 30 years out of that tank. If I canít fix it then I will replace the whole unit. Thanks again guys, Earl.
