Dryer would not start

After reading a previous review about how easy this was to repair I decided to save the 125.00 repair charge and do it myself. It was very easy and took under 20 minutes. I just set the timers side by side, moved the wires one by one to the new timer and placed everything back in, works great! I would recommend doing it yourself.
