Your timer is broken and must be replaced. Someone forced the knob to the left and broke the mechanism.

The selector knob on my Whirlpool LER4634JQ1 does not move, so the dryer will not turn off automatically and no "end of cycle" buzzer sounds. Do I simply replace the timer?


Your timer most likely does need to be replaced. The timer has a small motor that causes it to rotate during the cycle and those can go bad causing the timer to not advance. Unfortunately, you cannot get just that timer motor anymore. Hope this helps!

The dryer works and heats up but it won't shut off


I believe that your timer has run out of time! ;) Seriously though, Your problem is more than likely your selector (the dryer timer knob) is worn out. Time to replace it with a new one.

Good Luck my friend!

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II gas dryer won't turn off.


Dryer Won't Stop Running
  • Ultimate Car II Dryers are fitted with a mechanical timer that sends an impulse to the control circuit board to stop running once the set amount of drying time has elapsed. This is because, should an electronic timer fail, this would necessitate the replacement of the entire circuit board. Confirm that the mechanical timer is indeed broken by opening the dryer's door. If the dryer stops, the circuit board is working fine and is not the problem. Simply slide off the protective faceplate of the dryer, unscrew the control board beneath, and flip it over. Connected to the back of the timer's knob should be a small round device with two wires running to the circuit board within the body of the dryer. Unscrew this device from the back of the knob and disconnect the wires. A replacement timer costs a few dollars and should screw into place without trouble. Reconnect the wires and put the dryer back together. It should work fine now.
  • If you need a new timer the best place ti get it is from Rough River Appliance Repair

Have a GE Dryer model DCL333EAOWW that will not turn on. Circuit breaker to wall outlet fine. Thought it might be switch behind 1/4 turn knob you use to turn it on. Replaced switch. Still won't start....

It will not automatically turn off when running, the knob does not turn while running.


Miss Stephanie you must replace the timer.
If you have a timed dry setting. Run timed dry. If it does not shut off timer is bad.
If it does shut off you have a sensor problem.
