The timer does not move and the dryer continues to run, too long. What should I check on the timer before I purchase a new one.
Answer Hello AJP. Check and see if your getting power to the timer motor while running. If so, then the timer will need to be replaced. The voltage will come and go based on the thermostat opening and closing. Hope this helps.

I replaced a couple of parts on the dryer. With each part I replaced the dryer got hot again then stopped. I noticed the timer was working sometimes on the 60 minute side and not on the very hot side. will this stop the dryer from getting hot all the time ??
Answer Michael, though it's possible, it's not likely the timer. The temperature/heat should be the same on both the auto advance and the timed dry settings. Your first check should be at the exhaust vent, make sure the vent pipe and the vent hood are not kinked or clogged with debris and lint. Then check all the thermostats for a "closed" circuit(s) at room temperature. If all's OK, you'll need to observe the burner operation for 15 or 20 minutes to make sure the gas valve coils 279834 are not weak and failing causing the dryer to not heat during the cycle.
