SOURCE: drying timer on auto dry

I called LG...they said to unplug the dryer for 5 min. to reset the timer ...this solved the problem.
They also said not to use dryer sheets during the sensor dry cycle as the coating on the dryer sheets causes the sensor to malfunction as it can't read the humidity level in the dryer.

SOURCE: Timer does not advance, dryer keeps running.

in auto dry the timer motor receives voltage to advance by way of the cycling thermostat.[each time the thermostat opens to stop the heat the switch in the thermo then changes that voltage up to the timer and it will advance timer motor until it closes again for heat and this continues till clothes are dry]so as long as timer is receiving that voltage and not advancing then i agree its the timer.other wise it could be a failing/intermident cycling thermostat.a thought.in timed dry the timer motor receives constant voltage.so if never stalls in timed dry it may be a clue that the timer is ok. i hope this helps you understand whats going on. God bless ,tom

CAN I PGM JUST THE TIME THE TIMER IS TO GO ON AND SHUT OFF WITHOUT RESETTING EVERYTHING LIKE THE CURRENT DAY ,TIME ETC.


Usually yes ... with modern timers.
The manual will show how to change programs... and this information is normally one of the last things shown in manual, or sometimes will say in same section that shows how to program timer.

Some older timers, some outdoor timers, and some battery-operated timers you must remove battery or unplug timer to reprogram

Following links can help identify timer and download possible manual.

If timer is not functioning... the battery needs to be changed or installed (if timer has battery, such as ST01, Ei500, EJ500 timers)
Or timer such as Aube or Honeywell or battery-operated timer mentioned above, or other possible timers not mentioned, has been exposed to freezing temperatures, and is not rated for low temperatures.
Or timer is defective.

Maybe the PF1202?
Probably just the freeze thermostat and not the relay.
Disconnect freeze thermostat wires from relay... and substitute a single-pole switch.
Be careful... power is ON

Do not leave the single-pole switch connected since 15 amp rating of typical switch is less than amp rating for 40 amp pool centers

Coati timer 13201


This is old timer since it still uses batteries.
Replace AAA batteries.
This timer also has preset programs. User cannot change preset programs which is the strangest thing I've ever heard about a timer, except vacation timers. It appears the timer turns on-off 6 times each day for no apparent reason that shows in manual.
Moreover, the timer has very complex instructions, whereas other timers are far easier to program.
Buy another timer.

Hello Terry. Which GE digital timer do you have?
Copy following link to identify timer, and download manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html

Reset timer using reset button.
If timer has no voltage, then check outlet.
Check circuit breaker.
Check that light bulb is good.
If timer is plug-in type, then test outlet with circuit analyzer. Try timer in different outlet with different light.
Re-post question with timer model number, and things you have tried so far.
