Probably a new timer... Which will probably cost almost as much as a new machine

SOURCE: Kenmore Electric dryer runs on cool down forever.

Call the mfr and ask them about it. This problem may be pretty complicated. There may be a problem with your board that tells it to go to cool down. Can you set the timer for 45-60 minutes and it stay on heat for that long?

SOURCE: Dryer will run in cool down mode,but not in any other.

Hi!

Please check the following---

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.
Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.
Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

3cd2377.jpg
Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Please accept this solution and ask for any clarification.

Thanks
Rylee

I have a Tork 1101 timer and up until now has worked fine. Now it won't shut off. The mechanical on/off tabs are set correctly. It turns on and as the timing wheel comes around, the shut off tab...


If clock is rotating on time, next suspect is P47 trippers have worn down. Trippers are made of softer metal so they wear down instead wearing down the on-off lever, and that way the timer lasts longer.

The mechanism that apparently trips the switch is loose: it moves from approximately the 4:00 position to 8:00 position manually and doesn't seem to be affected by the trippers anymore. Turns on and...


Problem is not clear and timer is not identified.
If I had to guess, the silver pointer is loose instead of stationary at 6:00, and the trippers are worn down and need replacement.
1) Open following link for Intermatic troubleshoot walk-through, and then add a comment:

With Intertmatic, Tork and Paragon metal box timers the trippers move the manual override lever back and forth.

Doesn't finish its cycle ?


Try advancing the timer manually. If that works, then you a need new timer for the dishwasher.

I have a Hoover 550 MB Top Loader washing machine . The cycle won't move from wash to spin . it doesn;t progress out of wash cycle , it stays there forever .


Will the unit spin if you manually turn the timer dial to spin? If so, remove power, remove the clock motor from the timer, and inspect the clock and mating timer gearing for debris or damaged gear teeth. At the worst, replace the timer. You may be able to scrape or file the damaged teeth so that the timer will progress.

Will not finish cycles, two hours later I will look and the tub is full of water or it may not finish spin cycle. Suspect the control timmer?


The timer mechanism is faulty. The timer is the mechanical computer of any washing machine. It simply works by connecting different circuits together for a predetermined time. If a particular cycle isn't working, the timer unit will need to be replaced. You can manually advance the timing unit by pulling out the knob in the middle of the unit, rotate the dial to the desired cycle then push the knob in- that will start that cycle. Good luck, Jim
