Can you give me instruction on installing part ap2976318 (timer). Thanks.
Answer Lou C., here's some basic information " Unplug power cord or turn power off to the dryer. To access the components in the console : 1. Remove two(2) screws that secure the console to the top. 2. Lay console forward onto dryer top.( Place a cloth or rag under the console to protect the finish on the top). 3. Remove the screws that secure the back panel on the control console. Remove the timer knob, remove the two mounting screws securing the timer assembly to the mounting plate." Thanks and Good Luck
During the heating portion of the "sensor dry" cycle the dryer will stop, buzz, then after a few moments start again. It may do this several times during the sensor dry cycle. It usually completes the whole cycle but sometimes the clothes are still damp. What is causing this behavior?
Answer M Dell, Are you sure the venting system and lint filter are clean and free of lint and debris. Are you sure the "Extra Care option is not "On" ?
" • The Extra Care feature (on some models) protects your clothing from wrinkles if you are unable to unload the dryer within 5 minutes after tumbling stops. The Extra Care feature tumbles the load without heat every few minutes up to 45 minutes after the cycle ends.
NOTE: If the Extra Care selector is set to Off, the Sensor Dry cycle ends after cool-down. A signal will sound every few minutes when Extra
Care is running if the End of Cycle Signal feature is set On. The signal and cycle stop when you open the dryer door." You do have to De select (turn off) the option. Good Luck and Thanks
Dryer will not shut off and does not heat properly ?
Answer Hi John. It sounds like it is due time to replace the timer. We do need the correct model # to get you the correct part #. Please let us know to assist. you better. Thank You.
Dryer doesn't shut off when time is up. Timer knob doesn't move . It will shut off if I manually move the knob to off . Thank you
Answer Hello Erika. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the timer 3976570 is bad and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
The dryer heating element does not shut down at the off switch in the cycle, it even seems to get hotter.
I replaced the thermostat elements etc. but no dice.
Could the timer be bad
Answer Hello Jerry. If the element is staying on, and the unit is not running, you may have a shorted heating element 279838, and it will need to be replaced. Check and see if the element is shorted to ground. If so, you will need to replace the element. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter.
