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.

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.
