This will occur if the timer mechanism becomes faulty or damaged. The timer motor, in this case, is the culprit. Unfortunately, this is not a serviceable part. The entire timer mechanism will need to be replaced, if possible.

What causes my timers to burn out on my washer, dryer and dishwashers


when setting your tmers on your washers, dryers and dishwasher, Do not turn the timer while the machine is in operation. When this happens the timer contacts are arcing and burning. on dishwashers and dryers, Open the door slightly to set the timer. never turn the timers while the machine is in operation. Timers are expensive to replace. If you need to replace a timer, you may consider the cost of a new machine with a warranty. Warranties do not cover timer abuse.

My lights on my Neptune dryer pulsate and the timer doesnt work properly.


This is a heavy one but I've stated before that all appliances and electronics need a functioning ground----you can't use a 3prong adapter to 2prong----there's no ground for the machine to function by and also an ungrounded machine is dangerous----this may not be your problem but it's the easiest to fix, the cheapest and the safest

Have someone else look at the machine, I'm not sure about the last guy. Do smaller loads to ease up on the machine. It will last a lot longer doing more, but smaller loads.

The dryer wont turn itself off


Is the timer turning?

Actually, doesn't matter, the timer is the component that turns the dryer on and off. If the dryer won't turn off via the timer then the timer is bad!
(I'm assuming, opening the door turns the dryer off.)
Replace the timer to fix.

If this was helpful, please select YES to the first two RATINGS questions. Good Luck!

Whirlpool Gas Dryer Timer problem


OK, this timer is designed to spin in both directions and, if you have to advance this timer in any way to complete a cycle, you will need to replace this timer asap.

In most cases, the mechanism will fail, causing this non advancement stage(stalled timer mech).

replacing the timer will fix this issue.

THE TIMER HAS A SMALL DRIVE MOTOR THAT TURNS THE TIMER AT DIFFERENT SPEEDS FOR DIFFERENT CYCLES AND VARIES FROM BRAND TO BRAND BUT EITHER WAY YOU MUST REPLACE THE TIMER , EXPENSIVE FIX IF THE DRYER IS WORTH IT THAT SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM
