Dryer works fine and timer advances if you use in minutes to dry mode. If you use the regular or permanent press cycles the timer will not advance and clothes do not dryer. Have swapped out the coils and the timer with no luck. At a bit of a loss on this one...

Tim L for Model Number Whirlpool lg7011xsw0

ANSWER Tim, Your going to need to check and clean the exhaust vent and vent hood, check and remove any debris from the blower housing and internal exhaust pipes and check the tumbler seals for tears and holes. Once all's checked then consider the regulating thermostat 694674 and the hi limit switch 279048. The way this dryer operates on an "auto cycle" The proper temperature has to be maintained, if there is an air flow problem or the thermostats "open" before the temperature is reached, the timer will not advance. In timed dry, the timer operates for the selected amount of time, wether the clothes dry or not.
