My whirlpool dryer timer won't advance using the AccuDry Sensor Drying mode. On the other hand, the Timed Drying mode works just fine. There is heat when the dryer is on. What do I need to replace in order to fix it? Thank you....
Answer John, You may not need anything, first thing to do is disconnect the exhaust vent from the back of the dryer, clean as much of the debris out of the vent system in the wall, Run the dryer on an "accu dry " setting with the vent off and observe the timer to see if it advances. If it does you will need to clean the exhaust vent sytem. Thanks and Good Luck
Dryer comes on and stays on for about two minutes. Then buzzer sounds and dryer turns off. You can turn the timer to one certain spot and it will stay on for about ten minutes at the time before shutting off. This seems like it has to be the timer to me.
Answer Hi Chris. Has your timer knob been off and possibly been put on upside down? Is the dryer abnormally hot above the center of the sides/top and overheating the motor? It will momentarily shut off the motor and then restart when the motor overload resets itself. The vent system needs to be cleaned along with the outside vent hood/cap operating properly. If all of this is OK, then replace the timer part # is 3406725. Thank you.
Unit does come on, but timer seems to be stuck in same position, and also no heat.
Answer Hello Abby. You will need to fix the heating issue to see if the timer is working. You will need to test the thermal fuses W10423382 and the flame sensor 338906 and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter 279311 and make sure it is getting hot enough to light the gas. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter for the testing procedures.

Machine will not start & timer makes a clicking noise when turn on. Door lights come on & have replaced thermal fuse.
Answer Hello Steve. You will need to test and see if the door switch 3406107 is good or bad. It should read closed for continuity when the door is closed. If it is bad, it can cause the problems your having. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter.

Will not turn on.
Answer Hello. Test the thermal fuse 3392519 and the door switch, 3406107 and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity, with the door closed. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. Hope this helps.
