Disconnect the electrical power cable from the wall outlet. No need to remove hoses or move the machine.

The control panel is held in place by two screws in the top (the inner screws.) Outers hold end caps in place. Once removed and layed on top of the washer, I made a wiring diagram, then removed wires from the timer. I pried the inner cover from the control wheel with a small screwdriver (be careful not to mar the plastic, and it will be brittle with age,) remove the circlip and the control wheel (knob) and indicator flange comes right off, revealing two machine screws that hold the timer to the panel.

The old timer comes off, the new timer is attached to the panel in reverse sequence. Install the indicator and control knob. Then, reinstall the wiring in correct locations. Button up, and voila!

Easy to do, and maybe we'll get another 30 years out of this war-horse! Total cost of repair, $212.00.
