MY DRYER WORKS BUT DOES NOT SHUT OFF IS THIS THE TIMER THANKS FOR THE HELP
Answer Dan, If the timer advances and shuts off in the timed dry cycle, then the timer is not the issue, and you'll need to inspect the electronic control board 8558178 for damage and shorts. If the timer doesn't advance to off in any cycle, then replace the timer.
My gas dryer will not turn on in any cycle. I tested the thermal fuse, door switch and the start button---all appear to be good---0 or very low ohms reading. I test the timer with the dryer unpluged and in a cycle between the BU and BK terminals and was good=0 and the Tan and White terminals = infinity. The one video I saw said that was then the reason and to replace the timer. Do you agree?
Answer Hello John,
You may want to do a continuity check on the thermal. The thermal would be the most likely part to fail and cause complete unit to not run. The T to W terminal is your motor circuit and would be open if the unit is not in operation. When you check the thermal fuse if you are using a digital ohm meter set it for audible tone. If you get audible then it is good, no audible it is bad.
dryer will not start when i turn the timer on there is alittle wheel on back of timer going round making clicking noise but nothing happens what could be my problem
Answer Bob, The timer sounds like it's working, so. Make sure you check and reset both brekers at the box. It could be you lost a power leg to the dryer,and the motor won't run. Also check for a faulty door switch 3406107, Make sure you can hear the switch "click" when you press and release the lever. You'll need to remove the front panel and check the thermal fuse 3392519 located on the blower housing. If it has an "open" circuit, it opens power to the motor and the dryer won't start.
