Default Dryer timer
Model Number: LGC7848DZo   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I just had a repair person out and determined that my timer # AP2973903 is bad. The T-W contacts are not closing. The wiring diagram shows that they should be in the closed position for all cycles. If I jumper them together, it seems to work fine. Of course, the repair guy could not suggest this and is getting me a price on, what I'm sure, will be an expensive timer. Can you tell me if there is any problem with permanently jumpering the T and W contacts?
Thanks

The timer diagram I am looking at shows the T-W contacts open at the end of the cycle and intermittently in Wear Guard cycle.

I understand your desire to save some dollars, but I strongly recommend against permanently closing these contacts. You can save money by buying the timer from APP or any other parts supplier and installing it yourself. My guess is that a service tech will quote between $150 to $200 to do the job and you can do it for less than $100.00

Here is the part from APP (which I think you have already indentified)

Part number: AP2973903

There is no Wear Guard cycle on our dryer. On the wiring diagram, every cycle shows T - W contacts to be closed. Please review and advise.

Hi Harold

Again, I understand what you want to do but I can only advise you to go ahead and replace the timer. The contacts on the timer open and close for a purpose, and while it is possible that the timer you have is for multiple machines and does not use the T-W contacts on your machine, I still cannot advise you to permanently close them. A dryer can be a dangerous device, it uses a 240v circuit if electric, and produces very high temperatures. It is just not something you want to fool around with when the fix is less than $100.00.

There are places to do work arounds and save money, a dryer is just not one of them.

Thanks, but no thanks for your safe suggestion to replace the timer. It's obvious that you only want to sell a new timer. I have checked with other sources and have been using it as I asked about for about 20 loads now, and everything is working fine.

You are certainly free to operate your dryer in the manner you see fit, but to set the record straight, those of us who reply on this Forum are volunteers trying to help folks like yourself. I have no connection with APP or with any other parts supplier and get absolutely no monetary compensation with respect to this site.

I think I speak for most of us when I say we volunteer because we want to save people like yourself money on repairs that you are capable of doing yourself (and its kinda interesting trying to figure out problems). The only priority I have over giving money savings advice your safety.

I hope this works out for you.
