Unplug washer; removed three hex head screws from top rear of control panel. Removed plastic clip securing control knob to timer shaft by pushing it out gently with a narrow crewdiver; that enables you to remove the control dial from shaft. Removed wiring block from timer by pulling carefully. Removed screws holding timer to the back of control panel. Installed the new timer, being careful to put tabs on timer UNDER the molded holding stops on the back of the control panel. That step centers the timer in the proper location. Replace screws. Re-attach wiring block. Reposition control panel and replace screws. Slip the control knob back on the timer shaft; replace clip in slot on shaft. Plug the washer back in. Conduct test cycle. Perfecto! We live on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. Part Select won't ship here, so I had to trans-ship it through my son, Brian, in New York. It would have taken a month to get a GE repair technician to come over here from the big island, and probably would have cost four times as much; more if he didn't have the part with him!!
