Default Whirlpool dryer timer won't stop running.
Model Number: WED5300VW0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a Whirlpool dryer that the timer just keeps running. The only time it turns the timer off, is when the door is open. If you start the dryer, and turn the dial, it will stop when it reaches OFF, but then if you turn it to the next setting, it starts right back up. If you open the door, then close it again, it won't re-start unless you hit the start button again. It sounds like a relay of some sort is clicking in the console whenever the door is open. I have tested the start button for continuity. It is working correctly ( at least it's only making a connection when the button is actually depressed). I have swapped motors out also thinking the motor relay might be stuck closed, but after 4 different motors, same result.

If need be, I can upload a picture of the wiring schematic. But, I have included the units model number in this post. Any help would be appreciated!

Default Timer

If you place the timer on "timed dry", does it advance? If not, you have a bad timer motor or contacts inside the timer are not sending power to the timer motor. If this is the case you will have to replace the timer

I have placed it on timed dry. It spins through the cycle, making heat how it should and the timer is advancing. Then it keeps on going past " off ", to the next cycle, then past " off " again.. Spinning and spinning, dryer still running. Only thing that stops it is when I open the door. Then I can close the door and re-start.

Default dryer timer

It is definitely the timer. The contacts supplying voltage to the timer motor are stuck together. Make the motor run continuously until you open the door, killing the circuit.

The timer in question can be dismantled if you are very careful and you may be able to clean up the contacts that are sticking or burnt. Be very careful when you take the cover off. I have many used dryer timers in my junk box and sometimes rob internal parts to fix one. It can be done and there is a U tube video showing how to do it.

ok. I was really struck by this, because I got 3 dryers in this week that are all doing it ( all Whirlpools, or built why whirlpool ). I rip Invenys dryer timers apart, all of the time and swap contacts out. I will look in to that tomorrow.
