Dryer timer will not advance in any mode.. timed, or auto mode. Dryer works, but will not turn off unless you open door or advance timer. Do I need to replace the timer?

the timer will need to be replaced if it's stuck in the mode as you stated. the timer is built with cog teeth gears that rotate slowly as the timer operates normally. If a cog tooth breaks off the timer is stuck in that position causing your problem here

You need to buy a new timer and replace it. Be careful when replacing the timer as there are many electrical contacts in the back of the timer so when remove it, please label all the wires. Please follow the instruction from the manufacturer how to replace the timer. Of course, make sure you unplug the dryer because the dryer is powered by 220~240 VAC not 110~120 VAC.
As for the heater, there are two possibilities. The first one is, part of the heating element is open circuit and therefore, there is not enough heat to your clothing. The second possibility is, your timer contacts is broken, when the timer asks for high heat, the electricity supposes going to all the heating elements, but since the timer contacts are broken, you have only part of the heating elements working. The heating elements are quite easy to replace but please replace the timer first. You may fix both problems once you replaced the timer. WL

TEDX640PQ1 dryer, timer no longer times and heat does not come on. dryer will spin and blow cool air forever

HI. The timer is the principal initiator off all functions. If the timer module dose not time, or rotate properly, this will signal that the timer mechanism has failed. The timer will need to be replaced in this case. The motor is damaged.

Once the timer is replaced, the heat will return as well.

Dryer timer is not working

HI, the timer mech is not repairable. you will need to replace the entire device if found to be defective. usually, the motor will become unstable, in return, not allowing the timer dial to advance. replace this damaged timer asap, if possible.

Kenmore 600 timer no longer works

This is not an easy task. you will need to disassemble the entire control panel to extract the bad or faulty timer. Extraction can be tough on some model. this will cause an inexperienced do it yourselfer to break off fragile retaining clips and screw anchors as well. you will also need to make sure that the wiring harness is re attached to the new replacement timer correctly. this is important. We recommend calling for service on all electrical repairs if you have minimal experience in this field of repair. Unfortunately , when these timers are damaged, you cannot repair them. you will need to replace the bad timer with a entirely new timer.

My hotpoint condenser dryer keeps tripping the trip switch

Replace the switch, or the whole control/timer assembly.

If it keeps giving you troubles after replacement, you will need to check the electronic control module (small box) inside the appliance.

Insert model number here to get schematics and replacement parts.
