Question about Kenmore 62802 Electric Dryer
Timer is going very slow. I would like to replace it.
Is it a hard job? I have replaced a water pump in a Kenmore Fridge.
Is there a site where I can get the instructions?
Thank you very much for your help.
It's not a hard job at all. i just replaced mine because two of the contacts were welded together. all you have to do is remove the back plate from the control panel. it has about 5 screws with 1/4" hex heads. then I think there are two more 1/4" screws that hold the timer in place. when you take the wires off the timer on the back make sure that the terminals they're connected to are labeled. i'll tell you what i mean by that. the one that i replaced had labels for each color of wire that went to each terminal. for instance: the black and yellow wire went to the terminal that was labeled "BY" and the blue lead was labeled "BU" etc. if you want to be on the safe side, just take a couple of pictures of it with a digital camera or your cell phone but it's pretty straight forward. if the timer isn't labeled as to where the wires go, just label them yourself. good luck

Kenmore timers are easy to replace
1) Disconnect power.
2) Slide out from wall.
3) Remove 3 screws across back of control head.
4) Pull plug connector from back of timer.
5) Remove knob (pull.).
6) Remove 2 screws and lift timer out.
7) Re-assemble in reverse order.
Timers do turn slowly. If the dryer runs, and never quits, then the timer is probably bad. But if the dryer runs for up to two hours or so, then it is probably OK. Reply back what problems are you experiencing.
