Default Dryer Timer Compatibility
Model Number: M460-G   Brand: Estate   Age: 5 - 10 years

I need a new dryer timer for an Estate Dryer (I believe made by Whirlpool). If I get a timer with the same Model Number, is that all I need or do I need to look for something else?

Thank you.

Paul

If you find a timer with the same "part" number as your timer yes it will work, however using just the same model number as your timer without finding the part number won't work, as there are several variations within the same model.

What is the model number of your dryer? It should look similar to this eed4400wq0.

Paul,

I’m an Ase Master Auto Mechanic. There’s a strong similarly between the appliance repair business and the auto repair business. That similarly is the “Shot Gunning” of parts. Shot gunning means haphazardly throwing parts at a problem in hopes of fixing the problem. Better described as “Guessing". Guessing is wrong. It’s just a waste of your time and money. As in auto mechanics an appliance part must never be replaced until it is checked and confirmed defective. Just a few days ago I was having a problem with my stove. The problem was completely misdiagnosed. Had I listened to the individual who gave me the wrong repair information I would have just wasted my time and money. Apply some common sense and logic before you go replacing parts and end up wasting your time and money. Ask yourself this:

Was the timer checked?
How was the timer checked?
Was the timer confirmed to be defective?

Fisher Man Sam:

I understand everything you say, and it all makes sense. In this particular situation, the timer does not advance. I thought about testing the timer with a multimeter, but then thought if it tested that was nothing was wrong, I wouldn't know what to do at that point, (other than call a professional), which will cost more money, than just replacing the timer. If there is another test that you can recommend, I am happy to listen.

Thanks,
Paul

Paulvolter,
Fisher man sam is right therefore again I ask what is the model number of the dryer itself? We can help you with parts and or repairs however we can not help without a model number.
Timer not advancing may be as simple as a timer motor.

Paul,

I’m a master auto mechanic. The only thing I know about appliance repair is what I teach myself, and what I’ve learned through trial and error. The internet is also a great tool. With a little common sense and logic a do it yourself person can fix just about anything. With all this being said visit the website below. This site will walk you through the steps for testing your timer.

My pleasure to help you.
Good luck.

Hey Paul,

Sorry buddy don't know why but the website for testing your timer won't post.


I'm not giving up though.
I'm a Marine and we never quit.
Surrender is never an option.
I'll find something that will help you and post back.

Hey Paul,

Got it buddy.
Here you go.

GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS!!!


Testing a timer motor

Note:

Disconnect the power source to your dryer before you conduct this or any other test. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.

The purpose of a dryer timer is to control the unit's cycles by regulating the length of time that power is directed to each component. It is not common for dryer timers to malfunction, and they are often misdiagnosed as having failed when they are actually fully operational.

TIP:

If you do have a timer motor that has failed, consider replacing just the motor itself and not the entire assembly. Timer motors can be considerably cheaper than the complete timer assembly.

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. Carefully 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.
