My dryer keeps shutting off unexpectedly. Sometimes 2 minutes after turning it on; other times 20 minutes. This happens with both the Automatic Dry and Timed Drying settings. If I turn the timer knob with it running, it will hit areas in the rotation that cause it to stop running. I tried disconnecting the dryer vent as recommended in another answer to a similar question but it did not make a difference. Does it sound like the timer is going bad?

My dryers Timer will not advance, The heat is working fine, but it never moves to stop a cycle. Do I need a new dryer timer or could it be a different problem?

My timer stays in one position and will not count down. Also even though the dryer will run with the timer in the on position it does not heat up. Could the timer cause the dryer to not heat up or do I also have an element problem?

How hard is it to replace timer part AP3136147?



Was this helpful?

I have a Whirlpool Dryer which will not start. I purchased a new push to start switch and installed it but that did not do the job. When you opened the front door the light comes on okay. Turn the timer to start position and you hear no ticking noise as if it is working. What could the problem be that the machine will not start? Could you offer some advice as to the problem or part I must replace to make it start?

The light on the dryer works, but nothing else. Is it the timer? If not what else could it be? The power is on.
