Default Invensys W10185982 / W10185981 timer
Model Number: WED5100VQ1   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years

This isn't really a question, just something I discovered when I had two of the same model year dryers. One gas, one electric. The electric one wouldn't work on the timed dry setting. The other settings, it heated just fine. So, I decided to take the timer apart. Two of the contacts were pretty well melted. I guess that's what one should expect on a little older dryer with parts made in Mexico.

So I had the SAME model sitting here, but gas. I don't have gas, so I don't repair them. So I decided to set the two timers next to each other, apart, and see what the difference was and if I could swap them. The only difference that I could see, was the advance motor on the timer. The one out of the electric dryer has a 230V motor. The one out of the gas, 115V, as it should. So, I swapped the motors, put the timer out of the gas dryer in the electric one, and.. Works perfectly. The contacts inside of the timers ( Unless my $500 multi meter was lying to me ), are exactly the same.

This is food for thought if anyone ever runs into this issue I guess.

I do have one question. Is there anywhere online that sells the internal parts for these timers? I can't imagine a thin piece of metal with another piece of metal on the end would be as expensive as a timer.

The only place you're going to get contacts like that from are the factory that made it or another timer. Those contacts are set in there and don't really come out very well.

I'm surprised the cycles were the same.

Well, that sucks. I got the contacts out easily enough. I guess I can keep them and just replace them as needed. I think it's foolish to spend top dollar for a timer, when you can change a contact for a fraction of the price. Guess everyone is so quick to throw everything away anymore.

It was literally the SAME model dryer. Exactly the same. Just one was gas, the other was electric. The timer numbers were only 1 different. But, it worked exactly the same. Like I said, the timer advance motor on the back was a different voltage. Other than that, exactly the same internally.

I work on lots of dryers and have found the same thing internally in timers. The contacts sometimes are burnt and they stick open or closed. I have at least 10 or 15 in my junk box and could possibly make one available to you if you can identify the timer better either by a p/n or maybe a photo or both . You can contact me on my e-mail as follows: jaybird@mtco.com
