Unhappy timer knob spins but won’t stop at the end of the cycle
Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years

My dryer Started making noise, clothes are caught in between Drum and felt gasket.
I replaced the upper and lower felt gasket and sliders and all worked fine since.
Now the timer knob spins but won’t stop at the end of the cycle; instead it moves to the next cycle and the only way to stop it is to open the door (moving the knob to the off position will not stop the dryer from running). Please help

Check to see if the start button has fused contacts. This is probably not the case, but it's an easy check. Make sure none of the components is shorted to ground. The problem sounds like a bad timer.

Thank you magician59, I took apart the control panel, found a loose and corroded connection, I cleaned and plugged it back, put everything back together ET VOILA..., as good as new.
Thank you for your help.

If I do the same as the last person and everything looks fine, what part do I need to order?

Well done! I'm glad you were able to fix it without buying parts.
