The swap out was easy except for figuring out how to remove the timer knob off without breaking it so the faceplate can be removed and the switch can be swapped. In back of the timer switch with some needle nose pliers you pull a plastic pin back and hold it back. This will allow you to pull off the timer switch knob. However, the real problem was so simple I could kick myself. The COLD WATER PRESSURE WAS TOO STRONG. I simply turned down the cold water pressure some and the washer goes through all it's cycles. I really hope this helps someone else out there before they go buying parts or even a new machine. I did hours of internet research and I didn't come across this simple answer. I changed an electric water valve and a temperature switch before realizing it.

The swap out difficulty is in getting to the part as a beginner handy man this was a challenge. You may need a second person to make things easy. Another to screw the part from the outside while you hold the part from the inside. However, the real problem was so simple I could kick myself. The COLD WATER PRESSURE WAS TOO STRONG. I simply turned down the cold water pressure some and the washer goes through all it's cycles. I really hope this helps someone else out there before they go buying parts or even a new machine.

I first had a problem with the dryer not heating. When I looked at the heating coil I could see it was broken. With much work I replaced the heating coil. The real pain in the ass was reattaching the dryer drum back to the bearing on the back of the unit. It is very difficult to find the holes on the rotating bearing and line them up with the 3 holes in the drum to insert the screws. Hence my mistake, I evidently didn't tighten the screws tight enough as they would fall out after an hours use and destroy the new coil. I replaced the coil but still no heat. . . . When the coil shorted out it damaged other electronics. I replaced two parts of the electronic (thermal limiter and high limit thermostat). Still no heat. I have another almost identical unit so I pulled the control panel out of it and still no heat. There is one other electronic part I see that I am going to replace but at this point I would rather eat a can of worms then look at it. I would highly recommend to anyone performing this procedure to really crank the screws in the drum tight and use blue locktite.

The washer hose assembly had mutiple tears in the bellow section of the hose, towards the outlet net the spout.

Used a metal cooking spoon to pry open the lid, held it in place with a chain (mentioned in the tools required) and used needlenose pliers to remove the clamp on the old hose assmbly. Transferd that clamp to the new hose assembly and replace the (1) screw holding it in place. Closed the lid of the washer, and now it is like the problm had never existed. (Very easy fix, 1 of 10 on difficulty scale).

Taking the front of the dryer off was rather easy. A two screws under the control panel and once the flap that separates the washer and dryer was removed there are 4 more screws to remove and release the control panel (disconnect wire harness and let panel hang). Once removed, two more screws separate the door/front of the dryer. Remove those and the 4 on the top front of the dryer. When completed the only restriction you have are bracket mounts. Just give a good tug and the front should separate from the body. Thereafter, the drum can be removed by removing the belt first. Reach to the back and depress the spring loaded pully by moving it to the right, releasing the belt. Let the belt hang while you unscrew the the drum screws, 3 located in a triangle pattern inside the drum. Remove them and the drum from out of the dryer. Straight ahead of you is the heater assembly. In my case, only the coil had to b replaced. So it was as simple as removing the old and in with the new. Reverse your disassembly to get reassembly.
