This part fixes the following symptoms:
I unplugged the dryer and removed the back access plate from the control panel (six small screws retain this panel).I removed two screws that attached the timer mounting bracket to the face of the control panel, leaving the timer hanging loose and all wires still connected.I carefully examined the old unit and compared it side-by-side with the new one, noting a minor design change. The old one used a small jumper wire between two connectors, while the new one bridged that connection by having those connectors share the same mount. Functionally the same, but it meant I'd have two fewer connections to make.Then, with the two units side-by-side, I used a small flat-head screwdriver to gently pry the blade connectors free one at a time (they had little tabs on them that locked them in place, so the screwdriver was a better option than the needlenose pliers I'd intended to use). I carefully transferred each connector to the same position on the new timer. There were seven or eight of these in all.Attached the new timer using the original two mounting screws, replaced the rear access panel using its original screws, plugged the dryer in. Success!

I removed the dryer back cover and control section cover using a nut driver. I checked the heating element by observing the red glow during heating cycle when the timer dial was in a position that worked. This confirmed the timer was intermittent.I matched the timer from my dryer to the pic on PartSelect and ordered the part. It arrived in a few days. With the dryer unpluged, I used the nut driver to remove the timer assembly. I swaped the wires by taking one off the old part and placing it on the new part in the same postion. I installed the new timer. It works great and I saved $150 plus parts for not using the maytag repair man.
I removed the six screws for the back cover of the control panel of my Whirlpool electric dryer (model #LEP6848AW0). I located the timer assembly and loosened/removed the two screws holding it in place. Using pliers, I removed the wires on the old timer, reconnected them on the new timer, installed the new timer into the control panel, and reinstalled the back cover. Note: the old timer design used a jumper wire, but the new design eliminates the need for this wire by making the entire terminal one piece of metal.
I removed the two srcews that hold the timer assembly in place. Then I removed each wire, one by one, from the old timer and reconnecting them one by one to the same terminal location on the replacement timer. When all were reconnected then I refastened the new rewired timer to the control frame with the two screws. The only difficulty was with getting the wires off the old terminals. They do not all pull off without minipulating the notch in the wire connector ... just take a little time and pull off carefully with a pair of pliers.
I unplugged the dryer and removed the back cover. I removed the two screws that held the timer in place and pulled off the dial knob from the front of the panel. After that I started replacing each wire from the old part to the new, one by one. I screwed the new part back in place, screwed the back panel,plugged in the dryer and in 10 minutes was done. I had a company check out the problem and they asked me for $328. 00 To fix it. Am I glad I searched for the part online.
Removed back panel (behind timer0 6 screws. Removed timer with nut driver (two screws). I then removed wire from old timer and replaced on new timer one at a time and then replaced timer. The old timer had a brown jumper wire (both ends plugged into timer) that the new timer did not have. Must not have mattered as the new timer works fine.
Removed six machine screws holding the metal backing plate behind the controls and two machine screws holding the timer in place. After that it was just a matter of moving the wired connectors from the old switch to the new one, replacing the timer and back panel and voila--like new!
It was funny I was at work when the part came,Then my wife called me and said that she had replaced the timer on the dryer.She pulled the back off took 2 screws out of the timer pulled it out and took one wire off at a time and put them on the new timer reinstalled the timer put the back on tried it out and it works great.
First I unplugged the dryer. Then I removed the back plate and disconnected a half dozen wires. I installed the new timer making sure to attach the correct wires to the correct location on the timer. I reattached the new timer in place with the screws and it works GREAT. I will keep Parts Select in mind when my next repair is necessary for any of my appliances.
