The repair was way to easy. I unscrewed the two screws that held the control panel on top of the washer. I flipped the panel up to reveal the timer. I copied the part number and sent for and recieved the part pronto. Next I took off the control knob , loosened the two screwed that held the timer in place. Next ,I unplugged the timer from its connectionand then plug in the replacement part. Bodda-boom, bodda-bing. Its done. Just reattach the timer by the two screws to the panel and screw in the two panel screws. It worked like a charm

First unscrew panel and it s an easy access to the timer. Unplug wiring in the timer and put the new one and put panel back. No need for instruction its a one plug wiring. Very easy and a lot of space to work on.
As mentioned before, replacing this part is easy. The hardest part was finding the right screws to buy, since the old screws didn't fit. The new part is not threaded so I bought some #10 x 3/4" self tapping sheet metal screws and that did the trick. Since the part is not threaded, it takes more force to screw in the screws. Make sure you have the screw lined up perpendicular to the part and you'll be fine.
After emailing PartSelect about the problem they suggested that the timer should be the problem. Checking a few other things I decided that is was in fact the timer that needed to be replace. I order the part and it arrived in record time. Replacing it was two screws and a plug.One thing I would suggest that PartSelect include the screws to finish the job. I had to buy two self starting screws from the hardware store.
I removed the two screws from the panel and rotated the panel up on its hinges. I marked the plug for the timer with tape so I would know how to plug it into the new timer. I unscrewed the knob on the timer while holding the shaft with pliers. Unscrewed the plastic nut, and removed the plastic shield. Then I removed the two screws holding the timer to the panel and removed the old timer. Next I threaded the two screw holes in the new timer with a 10/20 tap and attached the new timer with the same screws I removed earlier. Snapped the plug in place and closed the panel. Secured the panel with two screws and replaced the plastic shield and put the plastic nut on the new shaft. The nut served to "lock" the knob in place on the threaded shaft of the timer. Necessary to get the nut in the right place by trial and error so the knob would lock against it and make it possible to rotate the timer mechanism. Ran the machine and it works perfectly.
Installed the new timer. The screws on the old timer that held it in place did not fit the new timer. It would have been helpful if the new timer shipped with screws that would work with it. I used screws I had on hand to attach the new timer.
I had to tap the mounting holes.
