It took longer to find the part online than it did to replace it. 6 removed screws w/ a nut driver, 3 electrical quick disconnect plugs and swapping the knob from the old timer. Total time to repair this part myself, under 6 minutes.

The reason I needed to swap the part out was that the dryer would turn on, but the timer portion was broken and the timer would no longer count down and turn off on its own.

I'm very happy with the price and speed of shipping by Parts Select. They were about $55 dollars cheaper than some of their online competitors for this part and the part arrived within two days.
