Washing Machine Timer Dial Out of Sequence

We have a two setting (regular and Perma Press) radial dial control Maytag top load Model A206 washing machine. The timer wore out after 25 years (clock motor would not engage control unit). We replaced the timer with a new OEM timer. The washing machine control now advances through the wash cycle, but is not synchronized with the visual timer settings (i.e. start, agitate, spin, rinse, etc) on the dial. The dial itself has a fixed position bayonet mount so there is no room for adjustment. Is there a way to reset the control dial to the correct start point? Thank you for your time and insight.

Hi,
Any chance the wrong timer mounting holes where used? This can make the dial approx 1/4-3/8 of an inch off.

Thank you. No, there is only one set of two mounting holes and the Regular Wash dial setting is off by one-fourth of the dial's circumference. The rinse cycle terminates in the second half of the spin dry cycle and the spin (damp) dry cycle overlaps and terminates in the fourth minute of the 8 minute Permanent Press wash/agitate cycle. The timer is the correct part number and all electric stubs have numbers which match the original OEM.

Yes. The old part was 204454 and the new part is the same number. Two or three tabs have been moved from the back to the front of the timer, but the stub numbers match. Timer lines up motor on left the same as original and all stubs line up north and south as original.

Leaves us with: - wrong dial was used at one point - timer is bad
Maybe the old timer can be rebuilt instead of installing a new timer?http://www.applianceaid.com/timer_repairs.html
