I am assuming by "shaft" you actually mean the timer itself.

This could be a real pain. GE likes to keep all tech info a secret so I am not able to get a wiring diagram.
Since you did not mention it, I am assuming that you did not find a wiring diagram in the control console. Perhaps it is glued to the back of the unit. You really could use a diagram.

Here are a couple example wiring diagrams that may help.

I would not attempt hooking it up without a wiring diagram unless you have some appliance repair knowledge and can trace wires to confirm color coding etc.

With luck someone else will jump in with the required info.

Hook it up incorrectly and you could end up with a very large arc and spark perhaps even fire.

If you have not taken the wires off of the old one. The way you do this is, if the timer is exactly the same as the old one, you take 1 wire off of the old one, and then put it on the new one. Even if the timer is different, the terminals on the timer should be marked. So, if a terminal is marked B, on the old one, it goes to B on the new one. Should not be hard at all.
