Removed the 2 hex head scres holding the front panel assembly to the main unit. Then removed the screws holding the back sheet metal panel to the control panel. Pull back on the control panel to disengage the slotted flanges from the main dryer body. Rotate the control panel forward to expose the wiring and guts of the panel. Remove the holding screw for the timer assembly and place it out of the way. DO NOT remove any of the wire connectors from the old timer assembly yet. Rmove the control knob from the old timer assembly using a flat head screwdriver to pry it from the control rod. Place the knob on te new timer assembly and screw the completed assembly to the control panel. Now remove the bridging wire terminal and attach to the new timer in the same position as the old one. Now one at a time remove the wire connectors from the old timer and attach to the corresponding terminals on the new assembly. Reattach the sheet metal back cover with the screws and then replace the entire panel assembly back into the main body slots. Replace the hex head scews and reattach the power which you disconnected prior to doing anything else. Clean up the dust bunnies as long as you are back there. Tell the wife that this was a very complicated repair and worthy of a beer and some golf course time.
