I recommend watching the online repair video to have an idea of how to do this repair and unplug the power before starting.
First I removed the bottom plastic cover. Removing this cover is probably the hardest part of the repair and requires a little bit of dexterity. Then remove the temperature setting dial using the nut driver. Then remove the two screws at the back right that hold the timer in place. Remove the two screws at the back of the unit by the water filter with the nut driver and then loosen the two top screws located by the light bulbs with the phillips screwdriver. At this point the plate and temperature control unit will slide to the right and drop down giving you access to the timer. The timer is located at the back right hand side and is easily unplugged and replaced with the replacment timer. Just reverse the removal process to put it back together.
