I removed the dryer back cover and control section cover using a nut driver. I checked the heating element by observing the red glow during heating cycle when the timer dial was in a position that worked. This confirmed the timer was intermittent.
I matched the timer from my dryer to the pic on PartSelect and ordered the part. It arrived in a few days.
With the dryer unpluged, I used the nut driver to remove the timer assembly. I swaped the wires by taking one off the old part and placing it on the new part in the same postion. I installed the new timer. It works great and I saved $150 plus parts for not using the maytag repair man.
