I took out the four screws with Allen wrench, and saw that the timer plastic had broken where the screw held it tight to panel. Then I went to Parts Select website, and entered model number. Immediately got schematics and part numbers needed to effect rescue mission. Ordered the parts with expedited delivery, and within 36 hours the parts were here and ready to install.
Since the timer knob was already broken as well as the plastic around the hold-down screw, all that remained to do was disconnect the ground and the wiring harness. Old timer was out.
New timer ground connected, wiring harness slid easily and hold-down screw connected with a nut-driver. Slip in the three metal flanges into the slots on top of the washer, tighten down the four allen head screws, move the washer back into place, plug it in and done. Less than 30 minutes total.
