Ordered part on Saturday. Part arrived Tuesday. Off to a great start!! Removed three screws on back top panel of dryer. Removed screw holding timer. Rotated timer in plastic keepers to remove from panel. Dicconnected wires one at a time and reconnected each to correct contact on new timer. Rotated new timer back in place, replaced timer screw. Replaced three screws on back of top dryer panel. Installed new timer knob and my wife was ecstatic she didn't have to call an appliance repairman. By the way, don't order the D-Clips. The new timer knob came with one already installed.
