Dryer gets to end of cycle where it should shut off, but doesn't. The buzzer goes off, but the dryer keeps on running. Where do I start looking? After reading other questions asked it seems like it could be either the timer or timer power resistor?

The Dryer works until it start smelling burn and stop running. Wait a little and starts working again. The resistor reads close to 5000hm, when it is cold. The plastic translucid cover seems psrtly dark brown. Could it be the resistor opening when it gets hot? Your help will be greatly appreciated. Manuel

Dryer just stopped working. Could it be the resistor? We put a meter on both ends of the resistor and are not getting any continuity.

You answered my question about my dryer it works fine on timed dry as I have heat & it dries clothes and turns off, however, on auto-sense it has heat, it drys clothes, but the dial does not move. It just keeps running. The dial won't advance to off. You said to, it could be the resister part #279872, however, under the compatable section it says this part is not compatable with my dryer. Can I use it anyway?

Which switch are you referring to? The heat choices for: high , low, and air fluff are all included on the timer. Hope that is not what you meant.

Dryer works fine on high heat....while drawing approx 26 amps using amp probe on the black incoming line with an available voltage,of 240. However the heating element continues to glow orange red when I switch to medium heat or no heat (air fluff ) I checked the bias thermostat for continuity and it is not open. Perhaps I'm not checking it correctly or there's is another item at fault.
