I have a whirlpool dryer the will heat and advance until it gets to the cool down stage where is cools but the timer never advances. The dryer will continue to run until it is stopped manually. Is this a timer or a bad thermostat. I've replaced the high limit thermostat and the cycling thermostat. What is needed?

My "Estate By Whirlpool" dryer will not operate. When the door is opened the light comes on but when you hit the start button the only thing that happens is you get a single "click" noise from the timer. I took the back panels off and checked the power with the multimeter and power was fine. Removed wires from the thermal fuse and tested the continuity. Tested fine. Jumped the two wires going to the fuse and tried to bypass it to see if the dryer would operate and it wouldn't. I am now scratching my head. An appliance guy told me that it could be the timer, if so, it would be the second time in 6 years to be replaced. The last time the timer was replaced was because the dryer wouldn't shut off. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Latest Questions

Will not run but if I take timer knob off and apply pressure in different directions it will start until I release the pressure as it then stops running. Do I need a new timer if I apply a wood block to maintain pressure it runs and timer counts down to finish. I need a new timer correct?

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?
