My dryer's timer stopped moving forward, but everything else worked fine. After looking online it was clear that the timer needed to be replaced.

Note: Use your dryer's model number when ordering, not the model number of the timer (there are multiple versions of the timer, all with the same model).

To replace the timer, I just popped the latches to the dryer's lid by sliding my ruler into the gap between the lid and the front side. With the lid open and the power disconnected , all I had to do was unplug the electrical wires with a plier (for ease), and unscrew the 2 screws behind the timer knob which just pulled off.

My dryer is now working great again!
