Bought a new dryer timer. The recommended part for Kenmore dryer model 110.97281100 is WP3398190. The old timer model is M460-G and 3391658. Things do not line up exactly.

From your description, it seems you do not have an exact replacement. See what has to say. Don't be surprised if you get several different answers.

Hi i have an AD39 dryer and timer is faulty , old timers are obsolete they sent a replacement , different layout of terminals anyone know what wire goes where ? thank you Colin

The best thing to do is email them and ask as they will know better than anyone.

In my experience where this has happened to me, you will find the terminals are numbered or have distinguishing letters.

Need to replace my dryer timer M460-G

The problem is that the new M460-G timer does not have the same terminal letters as the old one (because there seem to be a variety of sub-models under the M460-G name providing varying options such as an "air dry" function). However, I've at least been able to provide the basic timed heat function using a different M460-G on my old Frigidaire Crown Gas Dryer M/N FDGB23RGS2 . To do this, figure out the terminal functions by rotating the M460-G switch and measure with ohm meter and also inspect wiring diagram (mine was at appliance pros dot com).
On Frigidaire Crown FBGB23RGS2 Gas Dryer:
The original M460-G is wired:
Terminal / Function / Color
A / Gas / Org
B / Line voltage / Red
C / Motor / Wh
Timer wired between TM and C
AD / Auto Dry / Pink
TD / Start Switch and Motor / Tan

On other M460-G Gas Dryer timer (from mystery Dryer), I wired it to into my Crown dryer as follows:
Terminal / Function / Crown Dryer Wire color
BU / Line Voltage / Red
BK / Motor / Wh
R / Gas / Org
V / ? / No Connection
Timer wired between TM and BK
WB / switched on while Motor & Gas / Tan
OR / ? / Pink (figured it was safe)6b1460b2-ed5e-4c5d-b06b-c654e59e7487.jpg

Dryer does not heat up model mdg508daww tested ignitor,radiant flame sensor,thermal fuse and tried limit fuse and cycling fuse checked blower wheel and made sure there was no air flow restrictions and...


A few other things that could make the dryer not heat are,

Heat selector switch on the control panel



A quick question though...i see where ya tested the ignitor but what i would like to know is does it glow or not

To test the heat selector switch ya need to use a multimeter set to measure ohms of resistiance and test the following to have Zero ohms resistiance when set to high heat setting

Red wire to blue wire terminal (wire must be removed)
Red wire to yellow wire temninal

The heat circuit on the timer is
Yellow wire terminal on the timer to the red wire terminal...on that too the wires need to be removed off of the timer

On the motor the heat circuit on the motor switch is the yellow/black wire to the black wire to determine if its good the igniter can be checked for POWER (120 volts) since the motor only sends power to the ignitor when the dryer is running because itsa built in safety feature that will prevent the dryer from heating when not running

Good luck,

Timer dial will not rotate automatically.

The timer (part number 8566184) is motor driven and can actually be heard buzzes or hums when it works. The symptom clearly indicates a stuck timer motor. Remove the control panel rear cover then check to make sure the timer motor wires are connected and that the connections are snug fit. Reseat the connections several times to clean off dirt and corrosion build up in the terminals and connectors. Replace the timer should there be no issue found with the connections and the timer still does not work.

Unscrew the faulty timer from the console bracket then secure the new timer in place. Disconnect the wires from the faulty timer terminals one at a time then connect it to the corresponding terminals of the new timer. This is to prevent messing up the wires upon connecting it to the new timer. Reinstall the console rear cover then its done.

I have a Kenmore gas dryer model 97591220. wont

Disconnect power to the dryer and remove the screws attaching the console rear panel to the console and pull the panel off.

Inspect the wires connected to the timer and ensure a snug fit connection. Clean the connectors and terminals then reseat it several times to ward off dirt within the connectors.

Reconnect power to the dryer and start it; replace the timer (part number 3398195 ) if the dryer still won't stay running. Unplug the dryer and pull the timer knob off the console. Remove the screws securing the timer to the bracket and remove it. Secure the new timer in place then disconnect the wires from the old timer one at a time and connect it to the corresponding terminal on the new timer.

Push the timer back into position on the console and secure the console rear panel in place.

Just attach the green wire to any screw closeby. Nothing could be simpler. Look closely and you will find a small male terminal to connect the green wire in some models.
