It turns out the back of my dryer timer knob was cracked, so everytime I would turn it it would just slip to any setting/time. This was just the matter of pulling out the knob & pushing in the new one. The other issue I had was my dryer would always run without having to start it. This is because the rotary "start" switch was bad. It just took a philips screwdriver to take the backsplash off the dryer to replace the switch. So easy my wife or kids could've done this!!
