Question about Dryers
We replaced a non working dryer with another used dryer that we thought was working just find. Now find that the timer does not advance. The clothes dry well and we know the vent is not plugged. We put on a different cord. Could we have put the cord on wrong?

depending on model, (mechanical timer or electronic timer)
Mechanical dryer timer has a tiny motor to advance it
many times service techs forget to plug in the timer drive motor when they replace the timer switch that it is screwed to
or they replace the switch when the switch is ok, but the motor is bad
Not a solution just something to check
the timer drive motor is a 2inch diameter press formed sheet metal device 1/2 inch thick on the rear of the timer switch
if there are wires hanging off, that is the solution
if there is no hum from the timer motor when you push the start button, replace the timer drive motor
electronic, not had one break yet

One of two possiblities:
1. Dryer vent is blocked - check the air coming through the outside vent
2. Blower Fan is clogged - remove the lower front panel and clean out the fan wheel
