My timer stopped moving, working, (it stays in the exact spot I set it to,wont ever run down and shut off) and the dryer stopped heating at the same time. Is this what I need to replace?
Answer Hello Rena. You will need to test the thermal fuses W10423382, flame sensor 338906, igniter 279311 and the coils 279834. The thermal fuses, flame sensor and igniter should read closed for continuity. If the dryer is not heating properly, it can cause the timer motor not to receive power. Hope this helps.

What is wrong with my dryer if it heats up for only a few minutes then just blows cool air. Everything else works fine. Then if I wait a couple of hours before using it again it does the same thing, heats up and then just blows cool air only on all cycles.
The most likely issue with your dryer would be a bad cycling thermostat. If the cycling thermostat is faulty and opening rapidly but then not closing back then this would be the issue. What you would want to do is pull the back cover off of the unit and check the larger terminals on the cycling thermostat when the unit shuts down and see if there is continuity through it. If there is not then that is the issue. The part number for the thermostat is 3387134.
Timer is staying where I set it.
Answer Hello Shaji. If there is power coming to the 2 black wires of the timer motor, and the timer does not advance, replace the timer on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Dryer will not shut off at end of cycle just keeps on going only way to stop it is open the door.
Answer Hello Jerry,
You will want to look for a bad timer, shorted door switch or a short in the wiring of the unit.
The timer does not advance on auto dry settings only, also seems like it was taking longer to dry on this setting.Disconnected rear vent and made sure lint trap was cleaned and there was no change.
Answer Hello Dave,
If you have tried the unit without the duct connected, the issue will be one of three things. An open timer motor, a bad centrifugal switch in the motor, or timer switch "0" not making electrical contact. The timer motor will show a resistance, but should not read open or zero resistance. The centrifugal switch will read open unless the centrifugal weight is pushed against the spring tension to simulate the motor spinning the weights out. The timer contact "0" can be checked by testing from the timer motor wire to the orange wire or the white wire with a black trace, depending on the position of the timer knob. This connection, if good, will show zero resistance when the contacts close. This can be determined by studying the wiring diagram. The wiring diagram should be either in the control panel or it is sometimes glued to the rear of the unit.
timer motor runs on normal high
and low heat settings but not on the other two settings would i need to replace it
Answer Joe, No, it's not likely you need a timer 8299764 if the timer operates properly on one cycle,but not on another there's a very high chance, you have heat issue, usually a clogged or restricted exhaust vent pipe or vent hood, not a timer issue. On the "auto dry" cycles, the dryer has to reach the proper temperature(155 dgrs.) in order to complete the circuit to the timer motor so the timer can advance. If the temperature isn't correct, the timer won't operate properly.
Timer motor only runs in timed high
and low heat cycle won't run in air fluff.
Answer Hello Harold. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the timer 8299764 is bad and will need to be replaced.
