Dryer heats up one minute and cools off the next.
You bang on the timer, and works good.
Answer Hello Nancy. Look for a loose connection. If none is found, replace the timer on the unit.
I just replaced the timer on my dryer, now my dryer will come on & has power but will not stay on unless you hold the button.
Answer Hello Ken,
This problem can be caused by the timer being mis-wired or a bad new part. The other thing that can cause this is a defective motor winding.
Can I use a w10185972 timer to replace a w10185972e timer? I have an electric dryer... 220 volt feed... Dan b
Answer Hello Dan. You can use W10185972, but the other part number you provided, w10185972e, is not showing up as a good model number.
Will timer W10185972 fit on this whirlpool dryer?
Answer Hello Vickey. the correct timer for your model will be Part# 3976580
Hi my dryer won't start but when I push the start button it makes a buzzing noise but want start I'm thanking that it might be the timer but not sure can you help.
You will want to check to see if the motor is getting 120 vac when you are pushing the start switch. Another thing to do is to open the door and tape the door switch to the closed position, push the start switch and turn the drum. If the drum starts turning on its own then the start winding in the motor is bad. If not then the timer would be the most likely cause.
