I think you have to check your water supply pressure, your filters. Your machine is taking time to drain and fill in water. Otherwise, you might have a problem with your heaters not warming up easily which means your heater controls have a problem or your heater is busted.

I have a front loader washer Kenmore Elite Model #796.40311900 that spins SLOW, not FAST as it should on spin. The digital readout works normally.


sounds like maybe drain filter is plugged and unit is not draining fast enough. if you have drain access in front pull it out and clean it.

I need a night light timer that I can set to be on for 50 minutes and off for 10 minutes and repeat this every hour for 24 hours.


1) If you have programmable timer, then it would require 24 ON and 24 OFF settings, with down-to-the minute programming.
1 ON for each hour.
1 OFF for each hour.
Following link shows Grasslin 50-60 Hz 230Volt din rail timer with 50 memory slots. 16 amp at 230 volts
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/talento_371_372_371_mini_plus_data.pdf

2) If you have 24 hour mechanical timer with dial, it would need 24 ON trippers and 24 off trippers with down-to-the minute schedule.
No timer has that capability.

3) There is C8800 series cycle timer. 120-240Volt 60Hz for US market. 20 amp at 120volts, or 20 amp at 240Volt. Chose 1 hour cycle, then insert 100 trippers and leave 20 blank spaces.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/027-C8800-sprinkler-cycle-timer.pdf

4) There are percentage cycle timers.
For example CT2000. Rated 120Volts 60 Hz for US market.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/CT2000_sell-sheet-with-wiring.pdf
Select 1 hour cycle, and 16% or 84% percentage to choose ON or OFF

Can not set up my hydrofarm timer to come on for 1 min and off for 5 min.


You posted next to a photo showing hydrofarm analog timer with segments located on dial face.
Open following link for general look at setting analog timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html

Analog timers have a minimum set time of 15 minutes because the trippers-or-pins-or-segments are made certain width.
If you want 1 minute ON and 5 minutes OFF, you need digital timer.
Most digital timers have minimum set time of 1 minute.
But digital timers have limited number of set points per day unless you get into heavy-duty Intermatic timer like the ET70115 timer with 100 or so set points.

If you want 1 minute on and then 5 minutes off, and want to repeat that same cycle over and over throughout the day and night, you would need 240 set points.
Or check out 120V adjustable cycle timers.
https://www.grainger.com/Grainger/cycle-timers/timers/electrical/ecatalog/N-8hbZ1z0q55s

If you want the cycle timer to operate certain hours only, then put ordinary 24-hour timer between the cycle timer and the load.

The dryer will not shut off automatically. It would run forever if I let it. It also takes a very long time to dry the clothes. As if it's not heating them properly.


Hi there,

Well first of all you may try running the dryer with the vent hose removed. A slow vent will cause what you're describing. Then you'll need to look at the cycling thermostat. That is the part that tells the timer to advance. It sends a signal to the timer when the proper temp is achieved in the drum. Means when the element cycles off the timer motor moves a little bit. When it cools down and the element comes back on the timer stops. This action takes place when you're using one of the auto cycles.
If you have a slow vent it can cause the high limit thermostat to do the cycling. Please let us know for further help or information.....

Good Luck!!

Soon as i set cycle and swich on door light flashes open


hi,
The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. 


It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Thanks for your question.
