Hi Step 1: To access the timer, remove the front of the control panel. On some dryers, the timer can be removed without removing the panel. In either case, pull the timer knob off the shaft and slip off the pointer. The pointer is usually keyed to the shaft by two flat surfaces to keep the pointer from slipping when it's turned.
Step 2: Test the timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Turn the timer to the NORMAL DRY setting and disconnect one of the timer power leads. Some timers may have several wires connected to them: The power leads are usually larger than the other wires, and this size difference can be spotted under close examination. Clip one probe of the meter to each timer terminal. If the meter reads zero, the timer is working. If the needle jumps to a high reading, the timer is faulty and should be replaced. Replace the timer with a new one of the same size and type.
Step 3: To replace the timer, have a helper hold the new timer close to the old one, especially if there are several wires to be changed. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram detailing the proper connections. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for accuracy.

HI, i was an appliance technician for 8 years but seemed to be stumped> i have a maytag coin op dryer but the model # and wiring diagram are missing. its an older style with the big idler. anyways,...


One way you could isolate the problem is to unplug the quick connect to the transformer and take the heat portion out of the equation ( just to see if the dryer starts on it own only). If the starting on it own goes away then you have it somewhere in that portion of the cycle. Probably 2 wires rubbing somewhere. Why do we need a dang transformer in a dryer? That would be the suspect to me. Never even seen this before. Hope you get a solution. Hope you post it.

Just purchased a used Whirlpool Duet dryer(2 to 3 yrs. old). I hooked it up and placed it on a normal automatic cycle. The unit started up a little noisey but quitened down in approx. one min. Shortly...


try replacing the power cord, and make sure that you have a "dedicated" power sorce for the plug. The system board will shut the dryer down if a power supply issue is detected. This feature is to prevent fire hazards. Make sure your electric box is grounded and up to code.

I have a coin op dryer modle cem2760kq0 i put im a new timer in but it dose not stop runing?


mechanical coin op timers come without the shut off cam installed
there are slots around the edge corresponding to different times, that take a pin cam. the pin cam is in the box for the installer to insert to the owners specification, between 24 and 60 minutes in 6 minute intervals usually, hope you retained the packaging, or the old timer which should have its cam pin still in it

Ge Commercial Coin-Op Dryer.


When you replaced the motor, did you replace the relay? It sounds like you have done everything reasonable. I would try bypassing the coin operation part and see if that changes anything. Go back to the motor relay. It may be incorrect application. the part guys only know what the computer tells them. it may need a different one. I am assuming that when the unit shuts off you checked for power from the timer to the next place, according to the diagram.

Find a manual


The coin operator timer consists of several small plastic gears. The teeth on the last plastic gear gets all chewed up so that the timer continues to run and unable to open the circuit which stops the dryer timer. Although the plastic gear probably costs pennies, your will need to order part number 33001275 torsion timer for about $75 - $110. Remove one screw & 3 clip-on wires - 15 min.

Maytag coin op dryer timer programming for mde-16cs


The maximum run time on this machine's timer is 54 min. There is an adjustable peg on the white plastic index wheel which you can adjust anywhere from 30 to 54 min. For example peg in position E is 30min, D is 36min, C is 42min, B is 48min or for 54 min you have to remove the adjustable peg completely, but don't lose it in case you want to change the time in the future. If it is already in the Max "A" position and shuting off early you might have to change your torsion return spring. Hope this helps
