First, let me thank the others who weighed-in on this repair - it was helpful. Since he likes helping dad, I actually had my 12-year-old son perform the timer replacement (with my supervision, of course). Start by unplugging the machine. Remove the timer control knob and be sure to salvage the little metal piece that slips over the control shaft. You will reuse this on the new timer. Next, remove the (4) Torx screws on the top of the control panel and tilt the panel forward. The old timer twists out counter-clockwise. Move the wires over to the new timer one at a time then put everything back together. Presto, the dryer shuts off like it should! Very satisfying little father/son repair.
After reading comments made by other customers, I ordered the timer and it arrived 3 days later. I used a star bit with the electric screw driver to open the top of the dryer. I removed all the dials and pulled open the top cover of the dryer. I carefully lifted the "tang" that kept the timer in place and turned the timer clockwise. I then used my cell phone camera and took picutres of all the connections so that it would be easier to reconnect the wireing to the new timer. I disconnected the wiring from the old timer and reconnected them to the new timer. I inserted the tang place in place and rotated the time timer counter clockwise. I then placed the cover back on, inserted the star screws and tighten them down. I put back all the dails and the dryer is working perfectly since. Took about 30 mins. I'm very pleased with the delivery of the timer and the ease of the installation. I will use Part Select as my sole supplier for all future repairs on my appliances. Part Select is Number 1 in my book!!!!
This repair was the easiest that I've ever done. Removed 4 torx head screws on the back and the timer unsnapped from its holder. I unplugged one wire at a time and plugged each one to the new timer. This part came the next day after I ordered it and PartSelect was cheaper than any other supplier.
It was amazingly simple and I am not even a handy man by any means. The only difficult part was pulling the cable connections as they are a bit tight. I was glad that I could accomplish this task for which the repair person was demanding $120.Most of these things are doable it's just that common folk are just too scared to even try them out. I figured rather than going out to buy a new dryer for $500 ( and if my wife had her way, $1000) I could give it a shot for $80.
