    I had to disconnect my dryer to put in a new bearing. Well my gf was supposed to have taken pictures of the wire order so put them back right. She didn't and I cant get heat now in the dryer. I have tried so many orders on the timer with no joy. I have the following color wires 2 white and black wires. A yellow, a red, a red/white wire, and orange, a gray and a yellow. The two blacks and the other gray are in the right place I am sure. The terminal post on the timer are GY, YL, RD, OR, PK, S, WH, and M.

    I have the two grays on the GY, the yellow on the YL, The orange and the black on the orange, the red on the RD, the red/white on the PK, the Yellow/black on the S and on the WH one of the white and black wires. If I put the other white black on the M the signal goes off.

The dryer buzzer keeps going off even when dryer is off


When the dryer stops can you advance the timer a little to turn off buzzer? Or when you open the door does the buzzer stop? I was trying to find a schematic for that model but I have had no luck. Power should come from the timer to the buzzer. If you know how to read a schematic. Unplug the unit and remove the back to the control panel. Check to make sure that all the wires to the timer are on the right connections. You may need an appliance repair service from your area to come out and diagnose it for you.

Duet dryer problem - GEW925PWO control panels do not automatically set. When they do give lights and time like they are accepting, they are not matching up with what the control is set on. The whole left...


hi The dryer timer, located in back of the control panel, controls several things: the drying time of the clothes in the drum, the flow of electricity to the heating element, and the flow of power to the timer motor and the drum motor in the dryer cabinet. Timers are driven by synchronous motors. Although the contact part of the timer can be cleaned and adjusted on some dryers, this is a job for a professional repair person. Timer motor repairs should also be handled by a professional, but you can replace a faulty timer yourself. Here's how to test and replace a dryer timer:
Step 1: To access the timer, remove the front of the control panel. On some dryers, the timer can be removed without removing the panel. In either case, pull the timer knob off the shaft and slip off the pointer. The pointer is usually keyed to the shaft by two flat surfaces to keep the pointer from slipping when it's turned.
Step 2: Test the timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Turn the timer to the NORMAL DRY setting and disconnect one of the timer power leads. Some timers may have several wires connected to them: The power leads are usually larger than the other wires, and this size difference can be spotted under close examination. Clip one probe of the meter to each timer terminal. If the meter reads zero, the timer is working. If the needle jumps to a high reading, the timer is faulty and should be replaced. Replace the timer with a new one of the same size and type.
Step 3: To replace the timer, have a helper hold the new timer close to the old one, especially if there are several wires to be changed. 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 detailing the proper connections. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for accuracy.

Dryer will not turn off after cycle is complete


You Have a Broken Timer... There are metal points inside the Timer and can melt together so when the dryer reachs its end cycle they should come apart to leave the circuit open but wont since they melted together and continues to run. Also if the dryer has a computer board controling everything that would have to be replaced if it dosnt have a timer.

1. You will have to replace the timer if your going to accomplish this on your own you will need the model number which is located on the inside of the door opening will say mod or model.

2. You will need to find a appliance parts house in your area and call them to find out how much the new timer will cost plus to make sure they still make them and if on there shelf.

3. Once you have the new timer you will need a small flat head screw driver, 1/4" - 5/16" socket and a Phillips head screw driver to remove back panel bolts.

4. (WARNING) Unplug the dryer always make sure its unplugged or you risk being severly injurded or possible death the dryer has 220 volts running thru it!

5. Remove the back panel on the dryer where the dash is once removed you will see all the wires connecting to the timer. This is where the 1/4" or 5/16 socket comes in unless its a phillips head screw driver should be 1/4" some models will require a specail star bit normally on GE Dryers

6. Remove the timer knob should slide right off then remove the 2 1/4" screws holding the timer to the dash.

7. With new timer in hand make sure it lines up with the old one so you can put the wires back where they go (IMPORTANT THERE WILL BE 2 BLACK OR BROWN WIRES GOING TO A METAL LOOKING ROUND THING THATS THE CLOCK IT DRIVES THE TIMER LEAVE THEM WIRES WHERE THERE AT) now slowly remove 1 WIRE AT A TIME off old timer and connect to new timer where they go so you dont get wires hooked up to wrong post and fry the new timer if wires wont pop off yous your flat head screw driver to gently pry the wires off the post.

8. Place timer back where it goes there are aligment holes to help and replace the 2 screws you took out earlier from the timer.

9. Replace the back panel to the dash once completed plug in your dryer and replace the timer knob and set it to 5 mins let the dryer run till it shuts off to make sure its working properly.

If your dryer has a Computer Board the new board you order will have instructions for installing it alor the them are different on how the go in.

If unsure or dont want to fool with it call a qualified techinician to service your dryer for you but hopfully this will get you back going again have a good day.

I have a Kenmore gas dryer model 97591220. wont


Disconnect power to the dryer and remove the screws attaching the console rear panel to the console and pull the panel off.

Inspect the wires connected to the timer and ensure a snug fit connection. Clean the connectors and terminals then reseat it several times to ward off dirt within the connectors.

Reconnect power to the dryer and start it; replace the timer (part number 3398195 ) if the dryer still won't stay running. Unplug the dryer and pull the timer knob off the console. Remove the screws securing the timer to the bracket and remove it. Secure the new timer in place then disconnect the wires from the old timer one at a time and connect it to the corresponding terminal on the new timer.

Push the timer back into position on the console and secure the console rear panel in place.

Dryer will start run 5 minnutes shut down


After the dryer has been started to run, the motor will stop only when at least one of the motor feeder circuit wires is disconnected. The main feed line is routed through the timer while the neutral feed line is routed through the door switch. Hence, the problem is either the timer or the door switch. But the dryer shuts down 5 minutes after it is started and this signifies a dead spot in the timer that discontinues the main feed line shutting the motor down and also the timer motor. If the timer stops at the same point, then the timer is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Replacing the timer is an easy task that an average handy housewife can do. Just make sure the power to the dryer is disconnected prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Pull the timer knob off the console then remove the screws attaching the console rear panel to the console and move the panel away.

Disconnect the wires from the timer terminals one at a time then connect it to the new timer to avoid swapping out the wires.

Remove the screws securing the timer to the bracket then remove the timer and secure the new timer in place. Put the console rear panel back into position and secure it with the screws.

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.

Timer stops at 6 and dryer continues to run


The moisture sensor is in the lint filter. Remove 4 screws from inside the drum and you have the sensor attached by 2 wires. On my dryer I disconnected then reconnected these 2 wires, reassembled the lint trap and auto dry works fine again.

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.

Insert model number here to get schematics and replacement parts.
