The timer was intermittent and not connecting to ignitor

I pulled the dryer away from the wall unplugged it.
I removed the small back panel just behind the timer switch ( 5 screws for 1/4" nut driver)
The switch has one screw (1/4"nut driver ). Remove it and the timer switch comes away. Disconnect the two electrical connections.(impossible to screw this part up). Reconnect the the new switch to the couplings from the old switch. This part really is idiot proof. There's only one way.
The knife is to pry off the plastic dial from the stem of the old timer. Dial was on tight and the broad blade on the butter knife helped from breaking the plastic dial. Everything goes back together the way it came apart. Blissfully simple. I hope that helps. I felt like a real genius when I was done. Good job Partselect! I have 10 cats.

Replaced timer and belt

Removed back panel and old timer. Matched wires from old timer to new and installed new timer. Very easy and went smoothly. Having the Exact replacement timer was the essence of the task, thanks to the easy of buying from PartSelect.

The belt replacement was a little more difficult. Finally finding how to guide the belt Behind the felt busing in the front of the dryer helped. Then it took some cuts on the upper arm to guide the belt around the motor and tension pulleys properly. Be sure that the belt has the Rough side ON the drum and doesn't get turned anywhere in it's path.
