first try putting the red and black together and the whites together...turn on power, if the lamp lights all the time then keep reading,
(if not you need find out which is hot and which is going to the lamp this can get complicated if the color code is not followed)
find out if the blk is hot all the time or if the red is hot you need a tester for this. its easier to make a double pig tail on the hot wire and put one of the pigtails on one side of the switch and the other on the BRASS screw on the recpt. now put the other wire (red or blk) on the other side of the switch no pig tail. then tie the whites together with a single pigtail and put the pig tail on the SILVER side of the recpt. make sure you tie in a ground as well or the GFI will not work. hope this helps

SOURCE: How to wire to attic fan?
OK, your new switch will require the use of a neutral wire. So you will have to do what is called a pigtail. You will have to twist another white wire in with your other white wires to attach your neutrals to your switch. Note: white wires are called neutral not common. Hook the wires that were originally hooked up to your LINE to your HOT (Black) on your new timer, and the what was originally LOAD up to the new timer LOAD. SO as far as wiring all that will change is your white wires that need to attach to your timer NEUTRAL.

Find the Hot wire:
Your switch has 2 wires. One of these wires is Hot, and one goes to load. Disconnect wires from switch. Turn on power. Do not stand on wet surface. Test each wire to bare copper wire. When tester lights up, that is Hot wire. The other wire goes to load.
Hot wire goes to Black timer wire
Wire to load goes to Red timer wire
White wire connects to white wires that are twisted together
Bare copper wire connects to Green wire from timer
How to connect white wire to white wires that are twisted together.
a) Strip white timer wire so you have 1-1/2 " of bare wire. Stranded wire will wrap around other wires easily.
b) Remove wire nut. DO NOT UNTWIST wires.
c) Hold all whites together so bare copper lines up. Wrap stranded copper around the twisted wire.
d) Replace wire nut, or use larger wire nut. Twist real tight. Do not use tape. You can solder the connection.
e) When done, pull on white time wire to make sure it is held tight. Push whites back into box.

You have a two-speed as indicated by the red jumper wire and brown wire left out for connection. These two wires connect to the speed switch with the red jumper to low speed and the brown wire to high speed. The black electrical cord wire connects to the L or COM terminal of the speed switch. The diagram below should give you better understanding on how the motor and the speed switch is wired.
The L/COM terminal makes contact with terminal 1 for low speed and terminal 2 for high speed. The OFF (0) is not shown.
