    Hello my name is ramiro and i have a problem with the dryer. The timer of the dryer works but it doesn't count down it stays only in one spot and i have to keep checking if the cloths are dry. Do i have to replace the timer?
    For model number 3238965929
    Hello, Thank you for your question. That typically is the cause when the dryer timer is not fully functioning it will need to be replaced. We hope this helps.

    Can a bad timer stop the dryer from heating
    Hi Steve, Thank you for your question. The timer consists of a small motor connected to a series of gears that rotate cams, which turn electric contacts off and on inside the timer. The timer contacts control the dryer motor as well as the heat circuit. A defect in the timer’s electrical contacts can cause the dryer to stop producing heat and the timer will need to be replaced. The contacts can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. Unplug the dryer before conducting this test. Before you can begin to test your dryer's timer motor, you must first locate the device. It is a part of the timer assembly. Dryer timer assemblies are located behind the control console panel. You may only have to remove the screws securing the front control panel in place, or, depending on your model, your may have to remove the rear panel behind the control panel. Label the wires connecting to your timer motor so that you will be able to correctly reconnect them later. Carefuly remove the wires. Do not pull on the wire itself. Instead, use needle nose pliers to pull gently on the wire connector. Set your ohmmeter to the R x 1 setting. Take each probe and touch it to one wire. A normal reading for most dryers is in the 2000 to 3000 ohms range. Try to locate a schematic for your dryer. It should be in one of the service areas of your dryer or in the owner's manual. This schematic should indicate the proper resistance reading for your specific timer motor. If the reading you receive from testing your timer's motor differs greatly from the range presented here, then you should replace your timer motor, or the entire timer assembly. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    For model number WGD5200VQ1
    Hi Danny, thank you for your question. When you are experiencing an issue like this there are a few parts that you will have to test to determine what is causing your issue. For all of these parts you can test them with a multi meter. First you will have to test your thermostats and thermal fuses to make sure they are all functioning correctly. After that you will want to test parts in this order, your m series coils, igniter itself, or your radiant flame sensor. You may also want to check your regulator just to make sure that part is functioning properly as well. Something else you should also check would be your filter and ducts. Make sure there is absolutely no blockage that would restrict air flow in your appliance. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

    Gas dryer only worked on one cycle. Thought it might be the timer. Took it out, checked and cleaned contacts, put it back and doesn't work at all. No igniter now, fuses test good. However when taking the timer off the motor screws had to be taken out to remove plate, and motor came out of shaft for timer. Put it back on, but now it won't ignite igniter, so no heat. Would timer being out of sync when i put the motor back in possibly be the issue?
