I removed the two screws from the panel and rotated the panel up on its hinges. I marked the plug for the timer with tape so I would know how to plug it into the new timer. I unscrewed the knob on the timer while holding the shaft with pliers. Unscrewed the plastic nut, and removed the plastic shield. Then I removed the two screws holding the timer to the panel and removed the old timer. Next I threaded the two screw holes in the new timer with a 10/20 tap and attached the new timer with the same screws I removed earlier. Snapped the plug in place and closed the panel. Secured the panel with two screws and replaced the plastic shield and put the plastic nut on the new shaft. The nut served to "lock" the knob in place on the threaded shaft of the timer. Necessary to get the nut in the right place by trial and error so the knob would lock against it and make it possible to rotate the timer mechanism. Ran the machine and it works perfectly.
