Removed back panel and old timer. Matched wires from old timer to new and installed new timer. Very easy and went smoothly. Having the Exact replacement timer was the essence of the task, thanks to the easy of buying from PartSelect.

The belt replacement was a little more difficult. Finally finding how to guide the belt Behind the felt busing in the front of the dryer helped. Then it took some cuts on the upper arm to guide the belt around the motor and tension pulleys properly. Be sure that the belt has the Rough side ON the drum and doesn't get turned anywhere in it's path.
