My dryer timer does not advance when you have it seton AutoDry settings unless you turn it to the "cool down" or "less dry" positions on the dial. If I set it in time dry it advances normally. The timer ticks in the Time dry cycle and the cool down cycles when the dryer is not running put the timer is not in the off position. I thought it ticked throughout the Autodry cycles but now only does it in the cool down or less dry settings. I think my timer may be bad. Any suggestions?
ANSWER Carol, the first thing to do is disconnect the exhaust vent, from the back of the dryer and run a load of clothes through a cycle and observe the timer advance on the auto dry cycle. Your description is classic for a exhaust vent issue( clogged , kinked or vent hood issue). Thanks and Good Luck
