Frigidaire Dryer Timer Replacement question

I am replacing the Dryer Timer. While disconnecting the wires from the old. One wire in particular wouldnt release. After some wiggle and force the wire pulled away from its grips.

Where can I find a replacement wire?

This is not a wire that connected from the dryer to the timer. Its a single 2 inch wire with a whitish casing that connected to 2 timer blades.

I wrote to replair clinic but its been 3 days and no response.

Anywho out there know where I can find a replacement wire?

Bought a new dryer timer. The recommended part for Kenmore dryer model 110.97281100 is WP3398190. The old timer model is M460-G and 3391658. Things do not line up exactly.


From your description, it seems you do not have an exact replacement. See what www.searspartsdirect.com has to say. Don't be surprised if you get several different answers.

Old whirlpool thin/twin Dryer timer old timer M404-G New timer M460-G how to hook up


The problem as stated is that the new M460-G timer does not have the same pins as the old one (because there seem to be a variety of sub-models under the M460-G name). However, I have successfully (at least to provide the timed heat function) used a different M460-G on my Frigidaire Crown Gas Dryer M/N FDGB23RGS2 . To do this, I had to figure out the terminal functions by rotating the M460-G switch and measure with ohm meter and also by inspection of a wiring diagram at appliance pros dot com
On Frigidaire Crown FBGB23RGS2 Gas Dryer:
The original M460-G is wired:
Terminal / Function / Color
A / Gas / Org
B / Line voltage / Red
c / Motor / Wh
Timer wired between TM and C
AD / Auto Dry / Pink
TD / Start Switch and Motor / Tan

On other M460-G Gas Dryer timer (from mystery Dryer), I wired it to into my Crown dryer as follows:
Terminal / Function / Crown Dryer Wire color
BU / Line Voltage / Red
BK / Motor / Wh
R / Gas / Org
V / ? / No Connection
Timer wired between TM and BK
WB / switched on while Motor & Gas / Tan
OR / ? / Pink (figured it was safe)48146720-bbc3-47da-833c-6d50a0cf5df0.jpg

Need to replace my dryer timer M460-G


The problem is that the new M460-G timer does not have the same terminal letters as the old one (because there seem to be a variety of sub-models under the M460-G name providing varying options such as an "air dry" function). However, I've at least been able to provide the basic timed heat function using a different M460-G on my old Frigidaire Crown Gas Dryer M/N FDGB23RGS2 . To do this, figure out the terminal functions by rotating the M460-G switch and measure with ohm meter and also inspect wiring diagram (mine was at appliance pros dot com).

My frigidaire dryer LEQ642DS0 will not shut off by itself, would that be the timer or the knob? Also if it is the timer, is the kenmore/frigidaire part #131062300 (timer) compatable with my dryer


Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Phillips and hex nut screwdrivers
* Replacement thermal fuse
* Replacement thermostat

1. Disconnect the dryer from the electrical outlet.
2. Slide a putty knife between the top panel and front panel on the left side. Slide the knife toward the center of the dryer to release the left-side spring clip. Repeat the process on the right side. Lift the top panel up and rotate toward the back of the dryer. The thermal fuse and thermostat are located along the dryer's back wall, attached to the heating element housing.
3. Disconnect the two wires from the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is an inch-long rectangular plastic part, located near the top of the heating element housing. Remove the screw holding the thermal fuse in place. Remove the old fuse. Place a new fuse on the housing and replace the screw. Reconnect the wires to the fuse.
4. Remove the wires on the thermostat. The thermostat is a black, oval-shaped part located just below the thermal fuse. Remove the screws holding the thermostat in place and slide it out of its slot on the heating element housing. Slide a new thermostat into the slot and replace the screw. Reconnect the wires.
5. Lower the dryer's top panel and press down until the spring clips lock into place. Plug the dryer back into the electrical outlet.

The timer may be faulty.
Servicing the Timer

Most dryer timers are digital or mechanical. The timer controls most of the operations of the dryer. For this reason, any repairs to the timer should be made by a professional service person. However, there are a couple of checks you can make when you suspect the timer is faulty -- you may be able to install a new timer yourself.

Step 1: Unplug the dryer. To access the timer, remove the control knobs and the panel that covers the controls. This may be a front panel, or access may be through a panel at the back of the unit. Carefully examine the wires that connect the timer to the other parts of the washer. If the wires are loose or disconnected, try pushing them into position; they usually fit into their terminals like plugs. Use long-nosed pliers to avoid breaking the wire connections -- never pull a wire by hand.

Step 2: To test the timer, use a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the power leads to the timer and clip one probe of the VOM to each lead. The VOM should read zero if the timer is working. Since the timer is a multiple switch, turn it through its cycle and test each pair of terminals in turn. The meter should read zero at all of these points. If one or more readings are above zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.
Step 3: To replace the timer, unscrew and disconnect the old one. Install a new timer made specifically for the dryer. If there are many wires on the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one as you work. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram showing the connections before removing the old timer. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for correctness and screw the timer assembly into place.

My hotpoint condenser dryer keeps tripping the trip switch


Replace the switch, or the whole control/timer assembly.

If it keeps giving you troubles after replacement, you will need to check the electronic control module (small box) inside the appliance.
