Question about Whirlpool WED5800S Electric Dryer
Our dryer is about 1.5 yrs. old, model #WED5300VWD. The timer dial
will not rotate on its own and consequently the dryer will not turn off on its own. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance,
Mary from VA
The timer (part number 8566184) is motor driven and can actually be heard buzzes or hums when it works. The symptom clearly indicates a stuck timer motor. Remove the control panel rear cover then check to make sure the timer motor wires are connected and that the connections are snug fit. Reseat the connections several times to clean off dirt and corrosion build up in the terminals and connectors. Replace the timer should there be no issue found with the connections and the timer still does not work.
Unscrew the faulty timer from the console bracket then secure the new timer in place. Disconnect the wires from the faulty timer terminals one at a time then connect it to the corresponding terminals of the new timer. This is to prevent messing up the wires upon connecting it to the new timer. Reinstall the console rear cover then its done.
