Do not be afraid, this is any easy replacement. Begin by unplugging the washer. First I removed the two inside screws on the top of the control panel. Then the front panel falls forward. The timer is located on the right side (has two large wiring harnesses plugged into it). I removed the two wiring harnesses (taking note of which side each goes for the new device). I placed the new timer beside it and simply unplugged and plugged the wiring harnesses into the new timer to avoid any mistakes here. Then, I used a flat head screw driver to pop off the center of the timer knob. Once you do this, there is a small clip to remove. It simply slides off. After it is removed, the knob comes completely off. Then, I used a nut driver to remove the two screws holding the timer on (remove and discard). I connected the wiring harnesses to the new timer and screwed it in place, and followed all of the previous steps in reverse order.
