Usually it is a bad timer. Before replacing timer the valve, coil, and regulator must must be tested.

Here all diagrams and parts for your appliance:

Clothes not getting dry

sounds like perhaps you are losing your heating element...could be electronic, but it's most likely the actual element needs to be replaced...

Dryer beeps while drying

Most likely you have an excess of lint hampering air flow from the dryer. Vacuum out lint filter area, gently remove aluminum exhaust duct behind dryer and make sure it is clear and debris free. Also check exhaust duct port on back of dryer and that the vent going out of your house is clean and not stuck closed or clogged.

After one load, dryer stopped working. lint

With the exhaust clear, you need to be sure that air is actually moving. It could be a bound or bad exhaust blower.

It turns on and it heats up but it does not dry the clothes

Hello. W/D here. The problem with your dryer usually isn't too serious, and the most likely cause is easily remedied. If it'll run, and heat up, that's great. It sounds like you have a restriction in your exhaust circuit.
Unplug your dryer and scoot it out to where you can get to the vent ducting. Lots of times there are loops and humps in the ducting behind the dryer that just love to collect debris. Disconnect it and, holding the duct like a "U", take it outside and clean it out. While the duct is off, clean the dryer exhaust cavity and the vent where the dryer exhaust exits your house. Remove the lint screen and inspect/clean the cavity below it. A dryer brush (looks like a giant bottle brush, ~$10 at Lowes, H/Depot, W/Mart) is really handy for this type of cleaning. This should correct your problem.
Hope this was useful to you.
Regards, --W/D--

Dryer heats up ands pins, but it takes forever to

Hi, First thing to check is the 4" venting to the outside. Make sure it is free of any lint and that there are no kinks in the hose. If this is a gas dryer, the couls on top if the gas valve could be getting over heated and not opening the gas valve later in the cycle so there will be no heat.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Not Drying

Had the same issue with my Whirpool. If the clothes are getting hot but not drying then there might be a build up of lint in the exhaust duct and/or passage. Once I replaced the the duct and ran a snake with a brush through the passage (my dryer was on 1st floor, vent ran up to 2nd) and cleaned out the lint build up in filter area it worked like new. Also keep in mind if you use dryer sheets they will leave an invisible residue on your lint filter thus restricting airflow. This can lead to the heating element burning out. The lint filter should periodically be scrubbed with a soft brush (an old toothbrush will do) under warm water with detergent (I use Dawn). This should keep the airflow moving through the dryer instead of keeping it in the drum. Hope this helps.
