Depending on where on the cycle selector dial i'm at, sometimes the dryer will not start when i hit the start button. When i move the selector dial a little bit, the dryer will start. Likewise, sometimes the dryer will just stop in mid-cycle, but if i come and move the dial a small bit, it will start back up. Is this a problem with the selector switch?
For model number Whirlpool WED4900XW0 Dryer
Hello Jeff, thank you for inquiring. This sounds like a faulty Timer, this part number PS11746606 is the replacement for your model. You may also want to consider the Thermal Fuse, part number PS11741460. You can test the Thermal Fuse with a multi-meter. Set the multi-meter to Rx1, touch the probes to each terminal, and test for continuity. The reading should be of zero or infinity for it to be functioning correctly. Good luck with your repair!

I have tested the door switch, start switch, and thermal fuses with a continuity tester. All are working fine.When I close the door and hit the start switch, all I can hear is the motor for the timer going. How can I test the timer or the motor to make sure that they are working.Is there a way of jumping the timer to see if that is the problem?
For model number MGD5770TQ0
Hi Bill, Thank you for the question.You will need to see if there is power to the timer. If you are getting 120vac between BU and WB then you have a bad timer. You can also try and turn the knob to the next cycle to see if it starts.If it does then the timer is not advancing though the cycles and is bad. You can also press the door switch in and try to turn the drum by hand to see if it starts to spin. If it starts the motor is bad. To test the motor with the meter, Using a multi-meter, set it to AC volts. Touch the red probe to the left terminal screw and then touch the black probe to the middle screw. You should read 120 volts. Then touch the red to the middle and the black to the right screw, you should get 120 volts. Touch the red to the left screw and the black to the right screw, you should read 240 volts. Hope this helps!

Hi. My gas dryer runs a timed general cycle, shuts off but the timer doesn't advance to off and we still smell a small amount of propane until we manually turn the knob to off. Timer or gas burner assem.? thanks.
For model number MGD5740TQ0
Hello Walter, thank you for your question. It sounds like the unit is functioning great when running through a cycle, but not shutting off after the cycle is complete. I would recommend testing/replacing the Timer - 60Hz Part Number: WP8566184 and the Door Switch - 3 Wire Part Number: WP3406107 first. They are the most common issue when dealing with this kind of problem! I hope this helps!

For model number MEDC300XW0
Hello Charles, Thank you for contacting us. You can test the timer with a multimeter. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, we have videos available to assist you. While it is not the most common issue, it would be wise to check it just the same.

Our Kenmore electric dryer will not start randomly. When this happens, we can move the timer knob a very small amount and then push the start button and it will run. Do you think the timer is the problem, or is there something else that i may look at?
For model number 110.69722800
Hello Stephen, Thank you for the question. With the information provided I would agree it is an issue with the timer switch and it may need to be replaced. Thank you for your inquiry, good luck with this repair!

Dryer shuts it self off in the middle of cycles. You can wiggle cycle knob back and forth a touch and dryer comes back on.

We would recommend checking the following parts to fix your issue: timer switch, thermal cut off kit, high limit thermostat, internal bias thermostat, electrode/sensor, and door switch. You can test the parts with a multimeter. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, there are YouTube videos available to assist you. Hope this helps!

Auto dry has not worked for a while and now will not start on the timed setting or any setting. Is this typical if the timer pukes completely ?
For model number WED4900XW0
Hello Dean, thank you for your question. If the unit is tumbling but not heating the most likely issue is a thermostat or fuse. We would recommend testing those thermostats and the fuse first. If the unit does not start and tumble at all, we would recommend testing the fuse, start switch, door switch and the timer. I hope this helps.

I’m wondering if i can get just the round metal part at the back of this timer. None of the timers look like the one in my machine and the black plastic part of this is just a mechanical piece and it looks fine.
Hello, Thank you for your question. The timer is not sold in separate pieces. You would have to order the whole timer to get the parts. We hope this helps.

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!

Dryer would not turn off with timed dry or auto-dry
Removed knob, it just pulls off. Removed cover on backside of timer area, just the upper most section of the back. Removed the 2 screws holding timer in place. Disconnected wires one connector at a time and connected to new timer as they were removed to avoid mixing up and wires. The new timer is clearly marked for wire colors to avoid any mixups anyway. It’s a foolproof operation. I disassembled my old timer to see the root cause and it was actually just the small brown gear that was stripped out. Probably a 10 cent part if it were available separately. I kept the old one just in case a different gear or part fails on new timer. Still better than buying a whole new dryer! Super happy with partselect.com
