I knew right away it was the timer. I removed 3-1/4" bolts from the very top/back side of the washer, and 4 screws from the bottom of the control panel, 2 screws in the front side, and 2 screws in the back side, at each end of the control panel.make sure the timer knob is pushed inward, turn it counter clock wise to unscrew it off, then pull the back plate knob back towards you, it will pull straight off. then pull the other 2 knobs straight back towards your self, and they will pull off. then you can remove the control panel cover ! Remove the 2 bolts that hold the timer in, then pull the timer out through the top of the washer. Then unplug the wire harness from the timer. And it's out ! This did not take long to do ! Just reverse these steps to put your back together !
