I began by unplugging the power cord.
I removed the 3 control knobs from the control panel. The temperature and water level knobs pop off and the timer knob has a keeper ring behind a pop off center which was removed with a flat blade screwdriver.
Next I removed the 4 phillips head screws from the control panel, lifted the panel up and tilted forward to release the lower lip, laid the panel on top of the washer, unplugged the two multiply pronged connections, checked for separate ground, then tilted the panel upright and used a nut driver and socket to remove the 2 screws holding the timer too the panel. I did not disconnect any other wiring connections.The 2 screws are located begind the knob from the front of the panel.
I reassembled in reverse order with no problems.
The replacement went very smooth with no problems, be sure and keep up with the small screws and the retainer for the timer dial.
