Dryer Timer not Working

Got a Whirlpool LEN200LWo Elec dryer. Given to me. Excellent condition. Noticed when door opened, dryer did not stop all the time.
Also when shut door would not come on from the "push" button on. For a while could wiggle door, stand on one foot, cross my eyes and then some times it would work. Now, nothing works. Any ideas? Frustrated mom

Whirlpool dryer doesnt heat, time and shut off when you open the door


if you have it on time dry and it doesn't count down the timer is bad but it should stop when you open the door unless you have a broken door switch too,just open the door and push in on the switch with your finger,it should make a clicking sound,if not the door switch is also broke,if you have the timer on auto or more or less then it won't move without heat.on auto the heat comes on when the dryer reaches temp. the heat shuts off and the timer will advance a little,then the heat starts again and the timer stops,it will do this until the clothes are dry by using a sensor instead of time.

Won't stop, have to manually open door


Sounds like a bad timer. Your dryer is a Whirlpool product.so a replacement timer should be easy to locate. If the timer is advancing but the dryer won't stop, the problem could be the control unit. Run another load of clothes and take notice of the timer's position. If it doesn't run out, then it's very likely the timer. The video below shows step by step instructions for replacing the timer unit.

Hello,

I suspect the problem with your dryer is the door switch as opposed to the timer...its the responsibility of the door switch to stop the dryer when the door is opened as well as turning on the light too when the door is opened.

The part number for the door switch is 3406107 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;
apdepot.com
repairclinic.com
searspartsdirect.com
apwagner.com

There is a door switch so that when you open the door the dryer turns off. Be sure to unplug dryer before trying to remove the switch, it needs a new switch put in.

Whirpool dryer won't heat up


You need to replace the thermal fuse and the timer. A bad timer will over draw a thermal fuse and cause it to blow.

Please remember to unplug the dryer before servicing

DRYER SHUTS OFF PRESS BUTTON COMES BACK ON


Hard to answer as I cannot see diagram for the dryer. First off would check the door switch as it could be opening contacts due to vibration. Second could be Hi heat thermostat taking dryer out and after it cools will restart with touching of the start switch. To find if it is Hi heat thermostat, turn dryer on, when it stops open door and see if it is extremely hot inside. If so your control thermostat is probably not working correctly and your last safety thermostat is stopping the dryer. This could be a very unsafe condition as the lint etc. in dryer could catch on fire.

Dryer stopping in middle of cycle but timer continues to run.


oK " It's your timer, it has to be replaced

it's not going threw all it cycles, will start but will not finish

not a big job, unscrew plate on back at the top you will see
timer , take it out and replace it

( can not stress enough that you have to unplug the electrical cord from the wall socket before working on a dryer or any appliance )
