Question about Kenmore 60172 Electric Commercial Dryer
Came home today from being gone all weekend and found my laundry closet at about 100+ degrees. Dryer was not running, but found that coils stay on (bright orange) when timer knob is turned to an on cycle (timed or automatic, but no turning drum). I turn the knob to an off position and the coils turn off. Any idea what part to replace to keep the coils off when they are supposed to be off?
This is definitely a safety issue and should be referred to Sears. There may be a corrective repair that can and should be made.

THE TIMER HAS A SMALL DRIVE MOTOR THAT TURNS THE TIMER AT DIFFERENT SPEEDS FOR DIFFERENT CYCLES AND VARIES FROM BRAND TO BRAND BUT EITHER WAY YOU MUST REPLACE THE TIMER , EXPENSIVE FIX IF THE DRYER IS WORTH IT THAT SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM

Hi there. this is a timer issue. it counts down but, the actual shut off dial embedded in the timer mechanism is damaged for some reason. replacing the timer assembly will correct this issue. there are two parts to a timer. One, it times and last, it initiates the shutoff. the second action is not working properly. to be sure, check the relay before you purchase the new timer.
I have also provided you with a complete manual set that you can access and print out if you would like.
