CustomerJames from Nazareth PA

Dryer stuck in middle of heat cycle.

Lets say the dryer ran all night thru the middle of the next day. It would stick on time dry and sensor dry cycle. Easy fix. Make sure you buy the right replacement timer. Remove the back cover of the control panel of the dryer. Make sure you unplug the dryer first. Two screws hold the timer in place. There are several wires connected to the timer. Take one off and place it on the new timer. Do this with all wires, it helps to use a needle nose pliers to pull the wires from the old timer. Install new timer with the two screws, replace the back panel, and plug the dryer back in. You're done. Pretty easy.

Dryer would not shut down after cycle was complete

First, I disconnected the power. Then, I removed the screws on the back access panel. Next, I removed the control knob. Then, I removed the screws holding the timer. Next, I removed the wires from the existing timer and placed them on the new timer. I replaced the timer, installed the screws, replaced the back access panel and the control knob. I reconnected the power and tested the unit and it worked great!
