My dryer will start and run ok, but the timer will not run, it just stays where you set it and runs continuously. Am I right to assume this is the timer motor gone bad, or should I check a few more things before ordering a new timer?
Answer John, If you place the timer dial in the timed dry selection area and start the dryer, if the dial doesn't advance in a few minutes, then replace the timer 3979618 . If the timer doesn't advance in the "auto dry" selection(s), then this is an indication of a heating issue, and you'll need to check the exhaust venting and vent hood for clogs, kinks and restrictions.
I have replaced the heating element and thermal fuse and hi limit thermostat and still unable to get any heat out of my dryer.
Answer Hello Billy. You will need to trace the power for the heater and see where you are losing the power at. This will determine the bad part on the unit. It can even be the timer or the motor causing the no heat issue. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
