Ordered new timer skirt. Watched video on replacing it. Removed timer dial skirt and knob. Used screwdriver to release tabs on knob. Made sure the metal insert on old skirt came off with the old skirt. Installed new timer dial skirt, pressed knob into place and made sure it latched. Installation complete in 30 seconds. Fit and works perfectly. Only problem I have had in 14 years other than the inside light burns out often. Thank you!

I originally thought the belt broke, so I ordered a belt first. Once my friend broke the dryer down, it turned out to be the pulley. In any case, we still went ahead and put the new belt on since it had never been replaced anyway. I was not home when my friend put the pulley on, but my dryer is much quieter and running just great. I'm just glad I found this site online.
