I assume this timer your are referring to is the control unit of this dryer.So far I have understood is that this is the control unit you are referring as a timer,which when set on turns around while sending signal to appropriate components during a drying phase.If this is so then this control unit needs replacing which is causing such delay in this process.

If there's heat inside the drum the heater coils are ok. Check the exhaust vent, make sure it's not kinked or squished behind the machine and that the outside vent is not clogged with lint. You should feel air blowing freely to the outside.
If there is no heat, first check for 240V at the outlet. If you have 240V, it could be the element, the hi-limit thermostat, the thermal cut-off, the timer, the motor or a wiring issue (loose or shorted)
Good luck!.

    check your vent it must be clean 4 inches all the way out make sure the
    damper door on the vent hood is clean easy way to track down a vent problem is to disconnect the vent and run a load if drying time improves then you have a vent problem if not reply to me and we will look at something but the vent is number 1 cause of your problem

    or

    What you have is a obstructed dryer vent. If you remove the vent hose from the unit you will see moisture inside it. This is why your unit isn't drying. If the heater has no air flow the overload is tripped. Check your vent for any blockage most of the problem
    is at the outside end of your vent. there's a flap or chicken wire you
    may find the obstruction there. Or you can use a leaf blower connect it
    to the inside vent, cover the outside vent with pantyhose. ( so you
    don't get lint allover your yard ) and you can clear your like that
    way. Good luck hope this helps

Maytag Performa Electric dryer timer is bad


Look up an appliance parts store in your area. If there is no appliance store, try www.searspartsdirect.com.

If it does not turn off during timed dry then it for sure has gone bad. If it takes a while on timed dry then it is most likely that your thermal fuse/ valve coils are going bad.

Hi. Our dryer will start normally and then the


HI. This will occur when the there are issues that concern the integrity of the timer motor. This mechanism is responsible for the rotation of the timer module.It is damaged at this time, and it must be replaced asap.

A damaged timer motor will affect the nature of the drying cycle. It is the main initiator of all functions during the selected cycle.

Kenmore dryer timer will not turn.


Bad timer motor if you are using timed dry.
If using auto dry probably a bad sensor.
Verify by using any time dry or air fluff cycle and see if the timer moves.
