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.

my dryer will advance to the timer off position but makes a ticking noise and drum will continue to turn. does it need a new timer?
Answer Julie, It's a very good probability, based on your post information, the timer advances to the "off" increment in the timer cam assembly. The ticking noise is the motor attempting to advance and open the off increment and cant, so the motor continues to run.
