The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a
timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the
timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is bad and need replaced. If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some
dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not
advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat
inside the tub. replace the heating elements
II Dryers are fitted with a mechanical timer that sends an impulse to
the control circuit board to stop running once the set amount of drying
time has elapsed. This is because, should an electronic timer fail, this
would necessitate the replacement of the entire circuit board. Confirm
that the mechanical timer is indeed broken by opening the dryer's door.
If the dryer stops, the circuit board is working fine and is not the
problem. Simply slide off the protective faceplate of the dryer, unscrew
the control board beneath, and flip it over. Connected to the back of
the timer's knob should be a small round device with two wires running
to the circuit board within the body of the dryer. Unscrew this device
from the back of the knob and disconnect the wires. A replacement timer
costs a few dollars and should screw into place without trouble.
Reconnect the wires and put the dryer back together. It should work fine

HI. The timer will be the culprit here. The timer motor is damaged, and the cogs seem to be worn, as well. I recommend replacing this failed timer mechanism. Once replaced, the unit will operate correctly.
If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.
Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:
The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.
When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)
The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.
This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.
Repairing a dryer that won't shut off many seem daunting, but fixing your own appliance is actually pretty easy. The toughest part is figuring out what dryer part is the problem. We've created a list of the most common parts that can cause a dryer to not shut off. Use this list to diagnose the problem you're having and then enter your model number into the search box to find the right part for you. You'll also be able to access even more detailed repair help and tips about your dryer.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXs6cL_prAQ
On auto dry cycles, the cycle is controlled by moisture sensing bars located on either the rear or front bulkhead, ( visible inside dryer ) if the moisture sensor bars are shorted together (normally by wet clothing) the dryer will continue to run. If the dryer continues to run when the clothes are plenty dry, check and see if there is anything stuck between the sensor bars, (sometimes a metal sequin will cause this) or see if they are damaged. If not, you may have a problem with a timer contact, if the timer advances and stops moving at the same spot each time, I would suspect the timer. If this is an EvenHeat dryer, examine the control board located to the right of the timer in the control panel, for any burned components. Hope this helps.
hi thanks for the question ther is a thermostat on the air duct at the back of the dryer it has 2 wires at ends and 2 wires in the middle smaller ones this thermostat opens to turn off heat and the small wires on this thermostat when the heats shuts off then power goes to the timer and not before if it shuts off on timed dry timer is ok i would vacuum the dryer make sure all the vent right to the outside is clean as air flow restriction can cause this problem thanks the appliance doc
