The only thing that I can think of is that you are using a dryer intended for Europe in the US. While they both run on 220V, the timer motor will be specific for the frequency of the country. The US uses 60 Hz. Europe uses 50 Hz.

To keep the explanation simplistic, your timer motor expect 50 electric (frequency) "beats" per second but instead is getting 60 beats per second. Your clock is turning an extra 12 seconds every minute.

Does the timer count down on sensor heating


On a sensor drying, timer shows ONLY estimated time to finish. It might add some time, or finish sooner depending on the size of load, fabric, and saturation.

The timer starts counting down fast but the dryer does not move


Check the thermistor located on the blower housing. The thermistor should have a resistance reading. At room temperature it should read around 10,000 Ohms. You can test this with a multi-meter. Here is the part to order if you should find it bad.





The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Microwave timer counts down super fast


try unplugging it for about 15 minutes. if that doesnt work, you might as well get a new one. i fix everything myself for just the cost of parts and i have found that what parts cost for a microwaves, its cheaper just to buy a new one.

Run A Way Dryer


the timer runs faster or slower in sensor dry that is normal. if your problem is that it counts down to fast and turns off and your clothes are still wet, id say your sensor could be bad or dirty with lint or wax buildup from fabric sheets. i would first try and clean out the filter housing area and the sensor bars. two strips about 4-6 inches long mounted to the filter housing.can clean those with water and a rag. the housing can be cleaned out with a vacuumm. if that doesnt help then your sensor bars can be bad. hope this helps

My Kenmore drier won't stop now! Perhaps timer isn't working?


Hi there. this is a timer issue. it counts down but, the actual shut off dial embedded in the timer mechanism is damaged for some reason. replacing the timer assembly will correct this issue. there are two parts to a timer. One, it times and last, it initiates the shutoff. the second action is not working properly. to be sure, check the relay before you purchase the new timer.


I have also provided you with a complete manual set that you can access and print out if you would like.

Timer on dryer counting down too fast


Now that there is a good one. Everything you are saying leads to a control board failure. Did you replace the board yourself, or have someone else do it? I have before gotten a new control board of the shelf, and it be as bad as the one I was replacing. Just a thought. Let me look around and see if I can find some other information, just really sounds like a bad part.
