Timer would just rotate, with no washer actions started or triggered

I replaced the entire timer assembly as follows:
1. Unplugged the washer
Removed the cover from the middle of the washer timer knob, using a small screwdriver. The cover is held in by a friction fit, so it can be pried loose easily. This exposed the retainer clip
2. Removed the retainer clip, and pulled the knob and spring off. I placed the clip, knob, knob cover, bezel (indicator dial) and spring separately in a box
3. Removed the two outer screws on the top of the contral panel assembly. This allowe me to pull the face plate off and lay it on a towel (to prevent scratching) on top of the washer. All the wiring stayed connected.
4. On the front of the face plate, I removed two screws that held the timer assembly in place.
5. I removed the timer assembly (leaving the wires connected) and put the new on in its place.
6. I inserted and tightened the 2 screws holding the timer to the control panel face plate.
7. One by one, I transferred the wires from the old timer assembly to the new one, putting each in its corresponding place. They were spade/lug type connections and only required pulling off and pushing on
8. I put the front panel back on and inserted and tightened the two screws that held it.
9. I replaced the bezel/indicator, spring, and knob, reinstalling the retainer clip to hold the knob on
10. I replaced the knob cover, pressing it into place.
