SOURCE: my whirlpool imperial seventy dryer

I have the same dryer and it did the same thing to me. It ended up being the thermal switch and a frozen drum and belt due to excessive lint. Had to pay $190 to fix it, not sure if this is something that can be self repaired.

Timer does not tick and dryer does not reverse direction


The timer not moving is a sure sign it needs replaced. Fortunately replacing it is easy. Just search for your make and model dryer and order the timer. Remove the power, the back panel with the timer, the knob on the timer, and just a couple of screws and it's out. One by one move wires from old timer to new, install the reverse as taking it out. Put the knob back on, and the back panel. Plug it in, and you should be golden.

Ah, I just saw you answered in your own question! Good job! :-)
Anytime the drum turns, with or without heat, and the timer makes noises, doesn't move, has to be wiggled to start, or the start position changed, you can bet it's the timer. We just don't want to take a risk because it's one of the most expensive parts to replace, usually the motor costs a bit more, but seldom go out. Don't waste time troubleshooting other parts if any of the above applies, it's usually the timer.

The dryer has power but the start cycle knob only buzzes


IF THIS MODEL USES THE TIMER TO START THE MACHINE BY PULLING OUT ON THE KNOB, I HAVE HAD TO REPLACE QUITE A FEW TIMERS FOR THIS PROBLEM. SOMETIMES BY MOVING THE KNOB UP AND DOWN AND SIDE TO SIDE WHILE PULLING WILL START THE MACHINE. IF SO, REPLACE TIMER.

Kenmore electric dryer won't stop running / no heat! 110.62512101


Without anymore info. is sounds like the timer motor on the setting controller (the main knob) is bad. The entire timer/control part is usually pricey but if its made to where you can just change the timer motor that will be less. If possible check the timer motor with a meter for continuity to be sure. the parts supplier will usually help you with this, if they are worth a shit.
