There should be these cam inside by timer and if you have customer manual it will tell you which one to use.

my specialty...........................  Here's how you do it.    #1,  if you now have 30 minutes,  count the number of pins on the cam.   Most timer clocks are either 60 or 180.   (old ones I used to service went to 240 minutes).     If you have 2 pegs on it,   take the cam off and grind or chop off one of the pegs.    This will give you 1 peg, = 60 minutes.      If you have a 180 minute clock,  then to get 30 minutes you would need a 6 peg wheel.    If you want an hour,   clip every other peg to get a 3 peg wheel.   You get the drift.             Most come from factory set for 45 minutes.   They have a 4 peg wheel and a 180 minute clock on the whirlpools.    30 minutes is not a factory setting.    If you are in doubt,  look at the timer motor on the timer.     It usually tells you the clock time.    (180,  60,  30)  etc.   Good luck.
