I unplugged the dryer and then removed the top sheet metal cover with a nutdriver. I removed old timer with a phillips #2 screwdriver. I drew a diagram showing which color wires were connected to each point on the old timer. I unplugged the wires (a needle nose plier was needed for some of the tighter connectors) from the old timer and then connected the new timer. The whole repair would have been less than 30 minutes, but I dropped a screw into the open dryer. I had to remove the front sheet metal to retrieve the screw. This was the only annoying part and probably doubled the repair time, but even this was not too hard. I hate this dryer and will never buy another Fridigaire appliance, but I am happy with the quick service of PartSelect.com. It was faster and a lot cheaper for me to buy the part and do it myself instead of scheduling a repair.
