Timer stopped working
Well I unplugged the dryer, then I removed all the screws off the back of the main console. After that I unscrewed the old timer. Then I one by one moved the wires from the old timer control to the new timer control. Then i screwed in the new timer control. After that I screwed the back plate for the main console back on. And finally I plugged the dryer back in. And there you go it was that easy.


I also wanted to say that this experience with parts select was most amazing one too. I ordered the part one day with a 3 to 5 day delevery time. The following day I checked on the status and found out that the part would be here the next day so I was really amazed that it would be that quick. I would recommend and would come back to parts select for futuer needs for appliance parts.

Dryer would not start
I ordered the timer at 11pm on Thursday and had it in my hand Saturday morning at 11am. 36 hrs delivery time is FANTASTIC as I only asked for standard 3-5 business day delivery.

Exchanged the wires from the old timer to the new timer and had everything up and running in minutes.

Thanks partselect...To think I used to pay a guy $70 per hour to do this kind of service.
AND
My 16 year old can now fix a dryer...!!!

Timer never advanced, kept ticking and stuck in the same spot, dryer DID heat
Replace timer. Remove back panel and the two screws attaching the old timer. Remove each wire from the old timer one at a time, noting where the wire it attached, and attach it to the same place on the new timer. You may need pliers to gently grip the wire base and pull. Wires are labeled on the timer by color codes if needed. Seek additional reference if necessary. Replace the back panel and test dryer to ensure the new timer is working.
