Timer Continues to run when dryer is shut off

I have a GE "5 cycle automatic heavy duty xl capacity" dryer. I can't find a model number anywhere on the thing. Just within the last few days, I opened the door when I left home (the timer still had about 30 minutes on it), then when I came home, the timer was at 0 minutes. It works fine, but when I turn the timer it counts down even if the dryer is not turned on. It is not a problem right now, but I would like to fix it before it quits completely. A few questions, what could cause this, where can I find the model number, and where could I buy the defective part? Thanks in advance for your replies.

    It did not seem to do that before. I would turn the dryer off by opening the door, come back from running my errands, then start it back up again. The timer did not move before, unless I just always came back before the timer reset.

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

I have model # crgr7900A31 gas dryer front end loading. The dryer will not shut off. It continues to run.


Hi, If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.
Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle: The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees. When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.) The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

Turn off the electricity to the dryer.Try spraying the belt with automotive belt dressing inside that goes around the bucket.. If that does not work it is probably the bushing at the back of the dryer. you will have to remove the bucket to grease the bushing.if it is still good. judging by your details it seems good.But it could be dry.Needs lubrication.
