First called "trusted" independent repair person, I was told that the timer I needed was "no longer available" because of the washers age and was handed a service call invoice for $65.00. After seeing how much a new washer cost, decided to search online for the part. Stumbled across Partselect.com thank goodness! Finding and ordering the timer was extremely easy. The other repair stories were very helpful and matched my washer. I used an old jar to hold the little parts that come off the washer. Pop out center of control knob, remove retainer clip and spring along with the base plate. Now remove the two or four (mine had four) sheet metal screws that are located on the top outside edge of the control panel, it will then fold forward toward you. Next locate the two sheet metal screw heads that hold timer mechanism to control panel, remove them and timer comes free. Carefully remove both electric connectors making sure to note were and how they connect to timer. Caution , the electric connectors have little clips that secure them to the timer, pry them up just enough to allow connector to slip out. In my experience, this is the most difficult step as more force than I thought was needed to persuade the connectors out. When my part arrived, I just reversed the procedure and had a load of clothes going in less than 10 minutes. Thanks PartSelect.com
