    Dryer comes on with heat but cuts off in a few minutes, try again and it does the same thing. You think the timer is bad?
    Hello Morris, thank you for inquiring. The issue may be with the Timer, but you will also want to consider the Moisture Sensor. We will need the model number for your dryer to locate the compatible replacement parts for it. We look forward to hearing back from you!

    I have checked all parts and had them tested for my KitchenAid dryer. I took the heating element; dryer thermal fuse; thermal cut off kit; dryer cycling thermostat; thermostat high limit so what else can be wrong with the dryer, either the 220/240 plug or the timer. Does the timer have anything to do with the heat. The dryer is not heating.
    For model number KEYS750LQ0
    Hello Delia, thank you for your question. The only other part that could be the issue is the temperature selector switch. I would recommend testing the switch and if that part is fine, the timer should be replaced. I hope this helps.

    The dryer comes on but there is no heat. Can you help?
    For model number KEYS850GQ0
    Hello Don, Thanks for your question. There are a few different parts you may wish to test with a multimeter for electrical continuity. Test the thermal cut-off kit, the internal-bias thermostat, the heating element connection wire kit, the thermal fuse, and the heating element. You may also want to examine the belt for any signs of wear and tear. I hope this helps.

      Drying cycle would not stop.
      First I disconnected the power plug. Next I removed the various knobs. Then I removed two screws holding the control panel to the dryer cabinet. Then I removed the 6 or 7 hex screws holding the cover. There were two screws holding the timer to the control panel. I removed the screws and lifted out the timer. I took the various wires, one at a time, from the old timer and put them on the new timer, when finished I re- attached the new timer and reversed my steps. Once the panel was re-installed, I plugged in the power cord and tested the unit. All was fine.

      Timer didn't move the dial while drying
      Unplug the power cord. Next I removed the 6 screws that held the top back panel in place. Then pull the dial off the timer post. Then unscrew the 2 screws holding the timer in place. At this point it would have been "really easy" to swap the wires from the old timer to the new timer, except the wires that slid onto the posts also had a piece that locked them into place. I had to rig a paper clip with a small bend at the end to poke into the hole to release the small metal piece that locked it into place before sliding off the wire. Some were a bit difficult to reach because of the angle of the wire post and what was next to it on the timer. All in all though this phase took less than 15 minutes, so it wasn't too bad. After swapping the wires from the old timer to the new timer, reverse the disassembly procedures to put everything back in place. The new timer works better than my old one before it broke, ensuring my clothes are actually dry when setting it on the sensor-dry setting. And it actually does what it's supposed to when finished drying - that is activate the buzzer, and tumble the clothes every 5 minutes or so to prevent wrinkling.

      Dryer would not cut off automatically. Timer not functioning
      Disconnected dryer from the electric supply.
      Removed panel at rear of Control Console and loosened the 2 screws fastening the timer to the console.
      Moved the old timer to left and screwed new timer in place.
      Because of the number of electrical connections to be re- attached I decided to disconnect the wires from the old timer one at a time,starting from the left side and moving the terminals directly to the corresponding terminals on the new timer.This sequence ensured that I got each wire on the correct terminal and avoided having a lot of loose wires to choose from. The push-on terminals came off easily and pushed onto the new timer easily.
      I rescrewed the back-plate to the control console,plugged in the dryer to the mains electrical supply and ran the dryer. It worked beautifully.

      Dryer will not start
      One night my wife could not start the Dryer. I took a look at it and realized that the timer still advances, but it will not start.

      I called a repair man to take a look at it and he confirmed that it was the timer. He said the total repair will cost me aroun $270.00 Parts and Labor.

      I then came online and found partselect.com. I searched for the model number of the dryer, used the repair man tool and found what I was looking for.

      It took me less then 10 minutes to take apart the dryer and replace the new part. I saved over $180.00 on labor.

      To install,I unplugged the dryer from the power. I unscrewed the dryer top and pulled it out. I then unscrewed the timer and disconnected the wires and reconnected the wires to the new timer.

      Screwed back the timer in place and screwed back the face plate. Plugged in the dryer, selected a timer setting and pressed the start button. My wife thinks I am a hero.

      Thank you Partselect for the great service.

      Dryer would not start
      Replacing the part was easy, diagnosing the problem took 5 visits from the repair service and 2 calls to the manufacturer over the course of nearly 2 month. Once I was confident that the problem had been correctly diagnosed, I went online to order the part and installed it myself in less than 15 minutes. The part arrived sooner than anticipated at a price 33% less than that quoted by the service company.

      Dryer Would Not Shut Off Automatically. Timer Was Not Advancing In Any Position.
      Unplugged electrical cord. Disconnected 4'' air vent. Slid dryer out from wall to gain access to back cover of the control panel. Removed cover (six screws) with 1/4" nut driver. Removed knob from timer (slides off and on). Looking at rear of timer, there are two 1/4 " hex head screws that hold timer to mounting plate. Removed timer by removing those screws. Began at a predetermined terminal to remove wires from old timer and place these on the new one. Going counter-clock-wise one wire connection at a time the wire connecters slid off the old and on to the new terminals very easily. Reversed procedure in putting things back together and found that the dryer worked perfectly. Thanks for the video.

      Timer Assembly
      First removed the two screws that hold the timer assembly in place. I then pulled the timer assembly out about 5 inches and disconnected the wires. Then I put the new timer assembly in place.
      Replaced the two screws that hold the timer assembly in place. Also re screwed the top part of the dryer back in place and plug it up. It works great.

      dryer wouldn't stay running when "start"
      Removed nuts from back cover. removed old assembly from the dryer. screwed the new one to the dryer. Pulled wires from the old assembly and replaced them onto the new one (one at a time to assure proper location). Put the cover back on...Plugged the dryer in and whala! I wouldn't have imagined that I could have fixed it myself, but It was easy!
