I removed the three screws on the top of the control panel and the three screws on the rear shield. This exposed the timer.

Through a hole in the back of the timer, using needle nose pliers, I pulled out the spline securing the timer knob, thereby releasing the timer knob. This is the key to the whole process, because the Maytag manual says that turning the timer knob counterclockwise will release it. That is wrong.

Then I disconected the electrical connector on the timer, and removed the retaining screw on the timer. Next, I pulled the timer out of its snap fit and replaced it. Reversing the steps in described, I replaced the timer and snapped the timer knob on the spline, completing the job.
