All we’re going to need is a Phillips screwdriver, a quarter inch nut driver and a small flat blade screwdriver.

Let me explain you how we do it. it lays flush and
Now before we begin this repair, since we will be working near some electrical circuits, the first thing we’ll need to do is to disconnect the power so simply pull the cord from the receptacle.On most models, we simply need to remove three Phillips screws across the top of the console.
Then we can tilt that console forward and it engages on the bottom with three little tabs, so we can lift those out of the slots and then tilt it forward and lay it on its face. Now next, we’ll disconnect the wire harness connector to the timer. Just release this locking tab on the wire harness, then pull the harness off of the timer.

It’s bound to be snug.Remove the single quarter inch hex head screw and then locate the inner shaft on that timer. It is a little D shaped shaft. With your flat blade, go in on the flat side of that shaft and there’ll be a little notch there, just pry up on that and it will pull right out. You can then turn it over and remove the knob and the knob skirt. Now we can lift up on this little locking tab at the front of the timer and then push the timer towards that and that will disengage it from the three slots on the back of the console.

That these two tabs at the rear of the timer and a one hook at the front engage.Before we install the new timer, just make sure we push back that center shaft. Drop it into the opening and engage the two rear hooks, slide it forward, make sure it’s pressed down firmly and engages that front hook and that the locking tab snaps into place.
We can then reinstall that retaining screw and the wire harness connector. Make sure that you push it on firmly so that the locking tab on the side engages. that will disengage it
Then just rotate that console into an upright position and take our knob skirt and line it up.There is a groove on the inside of that skirt that will line up with a notch on the timer shaft.

Rotate it until it slides into position, press it firmly on. Then if you look at the inside of the timer knob, you’ll see two flat sides that will line up with that shaft.
Press it firmly onto the shaft and while holding it in position, go from behind and push that inner pin until it locks it on.

Next, line up those three tabs in the bottom of the control panel and the rectangular openings in the main top.Tilt the console back into position. Make sure it engages on the edges where the endcaps are until it lays flush and then replace the screws across the top. We’re now ready to reconnect the power and our repair is complete.

Told you it was an easy job. Thanks for reading and good luck with your repair.
