Dryer runs but the timer dosnt move and the heat does not come on
Answer Hi Craig. You will want to make sure that the dryer vent is clear from any obstructions. If the vent is clean, you will want to test the thermostat. The two large terminals will be closed, and the two small ones should ohm out around 250 ohms. You also need to check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Thanks!

Dryer runs for only short periods of time then shuts off. I have cleaned dryer vent and check ventilation all clear. Dryer still heats fine. Is this a timer problem?
Answer Hello Steve,
This sounds more like either the motor 279827 has an excessive load on it or the motor windings are shorted and overheating. The first case would be caused by something opposing rotation of the drum (drum rollers 349241T, idler pulley 691366, front bearing 279441, etc.), or something in the blower wheel.
