Turned off the electrical breaker to the dryer.
Removed the three screws holding the control panel. Removed the old knob. Tilted the control panel forward to expose the wiring and controls. Removed the screw holding the old timer and loosened the timer - leaving the wires hooked up. Then I removed one wire at a time and reconnected to the corresponding terminal on the new timer until all of the wires were connected to the new timer. Replaced the timer and re-assembled the control panel on the dryer - turned the electric breaker back on.
