Unplug the dryer. Remove the 3 screws on the top of the control panel. Gently pull the control panel toward you and up and out. Removed two nuts holding timer to panel. Slowly wiggle and remove the wires with needle nose on the back end of the wire clip. I removed them one at a time and then replaced them onto the new timer. Easier to keep track of although the timer is clearly marked. Replace the time onto the panel with the two nuts and place the control panel back in its seat. 3 screws back on and all done. It was an easy repair. Also replacing the timer, brought my PRESS CARE cycle back into play as well as the CHIME. Neither were working. Maybe these two controls not working were an early sign that the timer was going bad.
