I removed a few screws from the control panel, pulled the multi-conductor cable out of the main timer /control. Removed two retaining screws holding the timer to the front panel with a 1/4 inch nut driver. I unscrewed the control knob, removed the timer, replaced the timer and reconnected the multi-conductor plug. It took less than 20 minutes to complete. It was the fastest appliance repair I've ever done. I noted that after 13 years of use, several of the electrical contacts on the old part were burned, which is expected after more than a decade of use. This repair was a "no- brainer".
