Check for restricted venting, if ok, replace resettable high limit thermostat. This should correct the stopping so long as the timer itself isn't bad.

The dryer is not heating up and the dial stops at the cool down so the dryer will not shut off by it self. Its a kenmore 70 series dryer.


you need to send the model number,open the door and look around the opening where you put the clothes into the dryer and you'll see the tag with the model number.it will start with 110. or 417.because you have no heat that's why the timer won't advance,when the heat shuts down then the timer advances when the heat comes back on the timer stops moving or advancing,no heat the timer won't move.send the model number

My maytag dependable care plus electric dryer doesn't shut off


Does the timer move when it's almost ready to shut off if not most likely need a timer. Can you turn it by hand to finish the cycle and shut it off. If not must be timer.
Hope this helps

Dryer keeps running and timer continues to move around dial.


Change your timer. It has a malfunction in it. it's about a 100 dollar fix. Also your start switch may be bad.

Kenmore Dryer Model 110


If all of the components are reading ok then you need a timer. Touch your 2 leads together. 0 ohms rght. That means you have a complete circuit.If you get the 0 reading then the element must be otay. Bad timer. Take that fancy meater of yours and atttach one of them leads to the timer leg marked RH. Yank the wire off the terminal beore you test. Move the timer around. You should get the famous 0 reading along the way. If you don't then that means you have the bad timer.

Dryer keeps running and timer continues to move around dial.


A common problem, had it happen to me.

Replace the timer control. takes about 15 minutes and the skill to remove screws, disconnect plug from old timer, remove timer, install new timer, connect plug, replace screws and panel, run dryer.

Reply the model number, and I'll get you the timer P/N.
