Timer does not move.

I have a Whirlpool gas dryer - I will set the timer and the timer does not move at all. For ex. I started it at noon and when I came home at 5 it was in the same position and the clothes were DRY. What could be wrong? Model YWGD5300VW0. Thanks, Maria

Dryer will not heat, plus timer will not move


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Whirlpool model LGB6000KQ1 gas dryer runs but has no heat only cool air. The timer when set to timed drying, moves down to off position, but does not shut off. Please let me know what parts may be faulty...


If the timer advances to OFF and does not stop you have a bad timer. It could also be the cause of no heat. Replace the timer first. If still no neat replace the glow bar ignitor.

Timer doesn't move from any position. Heater doesn't active.


HI. this is a failed timer mechanism. replacing this failed timer control module will restore normal functions.

The timer is designed to rotate, via the timer motor. if this mechanism is defective or, not rotating this timer mech, this will render the timer useless. the timer has failed.

Whirlpool Gas Dryer LGR7646JQ1 Auto Setting Does Not work


I am thinking the timer has gone bad, They tend to work in some spots, and not others , when they fail. If you can put the dryer in Auto mode, then nudge the timer until you hear the burner light, see if it continues from there. If it does, chances are pretty good it's the timer.

Whirlpool Gas Dryer, LGR5636EQ2, timer not moving on Auto (DryMis


If that is a 3 wire gas assembly then the timer is screwed.The orange wire when removed from the mix will make the thing advance. The trouble is in the timer. If that is a 2 wire gas operator you need to change the high limit and open up the outside vent. My opinion.
