Before I try just yanking the wire bundles from the old timer, is there a proper way? Thank you!

I posted too soon. Should have trusted myself. I've got the old timer disconnected and the new timer is almost connected. Just need to push the wires in further. Thanks!

And the timer works!!! Thank you for the coupler info. Can I replace the coupler with the machine standing upright or do I have to put it on its back?

GFG,follow Pegi's last post. On the link look for the words "this post". This will tell you how to get to it.

You already have the console flipped up, remove the case while it is up-right,  I have to then lay the washer on its back to replace the coupler since the motor is very heavy and I cannot lift it back into place once the coupler is replaced while the washer is up right...

I had seen that and the machine is upright but somewhere I'd also seen directions to remove the bottom panel to get to it and I definitely did NOT want to do that unless it was absolutely necessary. Whew! Thank you.

;)  If you are strong enough you can do it with the washer upright, just use a cheater board or something to help lift and hold the motor in place while lining up 6 prongs into 6 holes and 4 motor mounting rubber grommets.....not this female, I have lots of room in my shop, I lay the washer on its back so I can set the motor down onto the tranny and line up everything without my left arm trying to fall off from the weight of the motor. :cool:

GFG, if you think the motor might be to heavy to handle,you might try supporting it with  a hammer handle or something of that sort while you line it up. Also, I like to hold it at a slight upward angle when I put the top clip on  and I like to do it first. For me, at least it seems to hold things together.

Ah! Then I would want to lay it down. Good point. I wasn't thinking about the motor being heavy. I need to re-order the things on my list of what to do when like removing hoses. And make some more room! Thank you again!

Are you talking about those two clips on the pump? I've been wondering what "remove the clips" meant. It doesn't really mean to remove them but to pull them out enough to remove the pump, right? Looks like I won't be doing any more tonight since instead of one faucet having a very itty bitty leak, I have two. I don't want to remove the hoses until I can turn off the water outside and do something with the faucets while the store is open. Or I may go ahead and remove the cabinet and see what's under there! Thank ya'll!

Remove the hoses off of the washer and stuck them into your drain pipe, remove the case and get her fixed!!  Kink the hoses while removing and re-installing them, or just place them into a bucket or something, that way you can get the washer done tonight....;)

Looks like it might not be that simple with one of the faucets. One is turned off. The other one as I started turning it off just turned and turned and turned, never coming to a stop. I'm concerned that if I loosen that hose that the water will still be on. - After I wrote that I decided to check again before sending this. The handle wouldn't move any more so I'm going to play like it is off till I find out otherwise. I'll loosen the hose at the washer end so that I can move it to a bucket and then to the laundry sink (easier than the drain). And I'll do the kinking too. Thanks for that idea!

Sure glad that I bought new hoses! I'm at the point I'm going to try to remove the cabinet. I've looked at the pictures and read the directions so.....

GFG,  if you're going to replace the coupler, you'll encounter 6 clips total. The first 2 will be the brass ones beneath the console. Then there will be 2 on the pump,and yes you will take them off. With a flat blade screwdriver, but it is a piece of cake. The next 2 will be on the motor itself and will probably have screws thru them also. These will also come off.At this point the motor itself comes off.

Thank you for the clarification! Right now I'm fighting with one of the "easy" parts - the lid wiring connection. No matter how hard I mash the release, the rest of the connector wants to stay connected, darnit! I'm using my sticky gloves so I think with a bit of working, it will disconnect.

I'm using a small screwdriver to hold the hook clear and then try to pull the sections of the connector apart but they don't budge. Does the bottom part fit up into the top or vice versa?

GFG, sounds like you're doing it right, but it just hasn't happened yet. Push the hook out and pull up on the connector,it'll come off.
