Remove the timer control knob cap with a small flat head screw driver on either side of the cap, between the cap and the rubber ring (this took a while to figure out, but it's easy once you do) then remove the knob. Remove 3 T15 hex screws on top of control panel, tilt top of panel toward you and lift up. Remove the electrical connector (this was difficult, you have to release the lock and rock the connector at the same time). Push down on the locking tabs at the feet of the timer assembly and slide to remove. Reverse these directions to install new timer. Unfortunately this did not fix my problem because the timer still won't advance. I'm replacing the sensor assembly next. I'll let you know if that works.
