The repair itself was easy. The knobs come off on the water temperature and level, you just pull them off. On the timer itself, the handle unscrews. You push the handle down and then just unscrew it. There are two screws on the front and two on the back which you remove to get access to the inside of the control panel. The timer is attached to the front of the control panel with two screws. The only thing that was unusual was that the replacement part was not identical to the original. The old timer had threads on its body. The replacement timer just had holes for self tapping screws. Fortunately, I had some self tapping screws. Installation is the reverse of removal. The most important thing to remember is to remove the electrical connector from the old timer next to the new one so you can install it exactly the same. It would probably go on backwards. Not bad for a 21 year old washing machine.
