Question about Dryers
Hi, dryer doesn't stop.
changed out timing module ($100). same problem. machine heat-cycles and tumbles correctly. removed motor from timer , and jumpered with 120v. motor works. so it appears that timer module is not getting power to energize timer motor.
is it the circuit board?
there is a thermostat on the exhaust with 4 leads. they alternate with 120v and send power to ignitor when there is a call for heat.
there is another module next to this thermostat (on the exhaust), which has two leads and on the other side is a strip about 1-1/2"long x 1/8". most likely some type of sensor (humidity maybe?).
thanks for your help

Tips for a great answer:
If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.
