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.

What is wrong with my dryer if it heats up for only a few minutes then just blows cool air. Everything else works fine. Then if I wait a couple of hours before using it again it does the same thing, heats up and then just blows cool air only on all cycles.
The most likely issue with your dryer would be a bad cycling thermostat. If the cycling thermostat is faulty and opening rapidly but then not closing back then this would be the issue. What you would want to do is pull the back cover off of the unit and check the larger terminals on the cycling thermostat when the unit shuts down and see if there is continuity through it. If there is not then that is the issue. The part number for the thermostat is 3387134.
