Timer had stopped advancing on maytag top loader washer

stared at the replacement part a bit to see how it should lock here/ or slot there / or snap in --recognized up front the hard part would be removing the knob without a specialized tool (part of timer snaps into outer knob for "pull/push" functionality) -top area back panel came off easy, once I did get the knob removed then the rest was quite easy. --and timer slid in on one side shifted right for a bit, then snapped in --knobs when back on easily (didn't strip out knob when removing old timer) -- wire harness slid out of the old with the help of a screwdriver-- and slid onto the new one easily (before snapping part in place).
Overall- lots of fun having a working washer that still really cleans clothes --scared of new ones after reading the Wall Street Journal on recent failures to clean in brand new machines.
