Hello!
I've been reading thru the topics and need some troubleshooting help. My dryer is not heating and will not turn off. Here are the steps taken so far and observations based on what I've read so far.

1. Checked and reset fuses at main panel. (they were not tripped)
2. The timer advances when using "timed setting", but does not turn off
3. On all other settings, delicate, etc. the timer does not advance.

Thanks in advance for your time. Have a great day!

Primarily it sounds like a bad timer. You may have a secondary problem causing the heat not to work, but it'll be hard to tell until the timer is replaced.

Thank you! I will replace the timer, and post again if I still have problems.

I had this problem on my kenmore electric dryer. I can't remember if the timed settings did advance, but I do remember that in general, the timer wasn't advancing, AND the heat wouldn't come on. Both problems happened at the same time. I took the back off the dryer and found out that the heating element was dead and needed to be replaced, so I replaced it-- and the timer started working properly again. I didn't have to replace the timer at all. My guess is the heat somehow triggers the timer to advance on the non-timed settings, or the electricity that goes through the heating element also triggers the timer to advance. Long story short, replace the heating element first (if you know it needs to be replaced), then check to see if the timer is working.

Thanks for the input. I will check the heating element for continuity first. Both problems happened at the same time, as you stated. I hope it's the heating element.

When I pulled out my heating element, I could visually see the break in the heating wire. I could tell for certain that the continuity wasn't there. There was no need of a any kind of electrical instrument to check for it.

Good luck.

Thank you, thank you! Pulled the heating element, and sure enough found a break in the frontside top coil. Replaced it, and now the timer is working as it should. Thanks again!
