Re: dial does not advance. dryer does not stop.

Sounds like a timer has went bad. Especially if it wont move in any cycle. The timers are pretty easy to replace, and on this model, not that expensive. The timer number is : 8299778 and runs around $60.00. To remove the timer, just take the back panel (of the console) off, then slip the knob off by pulling gently, then remove the hold down screws and pull off. I believe this particuliar timer has one wire bundle, but if not, be sure to make your wires to know where they go back. Good luck, and let me know if you need any further information.

The dial on the cycles never advances to the "off" position

The timer is shot. Replace it. Check around there are places that rebuild them, sometimes at half the cost.

I have a estate dryer TEDS740PQ0 not heating up what can I do ?

Take off the back of the machine. If you have an ohm meter, check for continuity across the element. The Thermostat above the element leads on the side of the element canister then the thermal fuse at the top side of heater box all for continuity. Then check the long white skinny on vent housing for continuity. If any of these has no continuity, then replace the bad part. If thermal fuse on heater housing is blown, it comes with a new thermostat replace both.

Estate TGDS680EQ3 gas dryer blows cold

The timer is stripped inside and needs to be replaced. The cogged teeth are made of plastic and a tooth or two has broken off keeping the timer from moving while running

Dono heat and timer dont turn

HI. Due to the fact that the timer is not advancing, this will lead me to believe that the timer is the culprit here. The timer is equipped with a motor. this motor, when energized, will advance the timer dial, thus, activating the unit, and progressing the cycle. If the motor is damaged, as in your case, the unit will not heat, or run correctly. Simply replacing the timer control module will correct this problem.

Replace this damaged timer mechanism asap.

No heat to dry clothes. Dryer is 4.5 years old. The dryer is made by Estate (by Whirlpool). Model # TEDS740PQ0

By far, on that machine the "thermal fuse" accounts for more than 50% of all heating problems.

Unplug machine and remove back cover. On the air chute in the middle back of the dryer you will see a small narrow bakelite device with 2 wires connected to it. It is held in with 1 screw.
You will need an ohm meter to test it, or remove it and have an
appliance parts house test it for you. If bad replace.
Whirlpool part #3392519.
The second common problem on that dryer is the heating element and can be checked with an ohm meter as well.

On rare occasions one side of the 230 volt supply is out.
The side running the motor is o.k. but the heater side has lost power.

Caution: your dealing with 230 volts here. remove plug receptacle cover and check with a volt meter for power.
