How to Replace the Timer on a Kenmore Dryer Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Phillips head screwdriver
  • Replacement Kenmore dryer timer
  1. Step 1 Unplug the Kenmore dryer from the wall outlet. Move the dryer away from the wall so that the control console can sit in the service position without hitting the wall.
  2. Step 2 Locate the screws that fasten the front of the control console to the top of the Kenmore dryer. There is one screw at each that may or may not be covered by decorative trim. Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screws.
  3. Step 3 Use your fingers to pull the timer knob off the timer shaft.
  4. Step 4 Grab each end of the control console with your hands, lift the front up and turn the control console over into its service position. The control console will sit on its hinges while in this position.
  5. Step 5 Use your fingers to press in the plastic locking tabs that secure the wiring harness to the timer. Pull the wiring harness off the timer.
  6. Step 6 Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screws that fasten the timer to the control console. Remove the timer from the Kenmore dryer, and take it with you to the appliance repair store. You should also have the model number of your Kenmore dryer with you as well. Make sure that the replacement timer matches the timer that came out of the dryer.
  7. Step 7 Align the new timer over the mounting holes in the control console. Secure the timer to the control console using the retaining screws. Connect the wiring harness to the new timer by pushing it into place until the locking tabs connect.
  8. Step 8 Pull the control console front back down to rest on the Kenmore dryer top. Fasten the front of the control console to the Kenmore dryer top using the retaining screws. Push the dryer back into its normal working position, and plug the dryer back into the dryer wall outlet.

    I need the model number of the dryer, Kenmore doesn't make anything, they contract that to Whirlpool and Maytag and then re badge it for sales as a Kenmore.

    There's no solution because an information was requested from you, the exact model number of the dryer. No expert can tell you directly which wire goes to which terminal without knowing what exactly is being wired.

  • capnned Jul 19, 2010

    Gave this info previously but here it is again: Kenmore Dryer model #11067422600. Problem is can't identify terminal for black, red and blue wires. I think black wire is load but can't identify terminal.

    Can you help?

Is this new timer installation, or older timer that stopped functioning?

1) Copy following link to help identify timer, download manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#E1020

2) If this is new installation, then check wiring for single pole installation. This timer will not work for 3-way switching.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-timers.html

3) If timer worked before, and now clock motor has stopped working:
Turn power off, use compressed air to blow out timer, then see if you can spray highly flammable vapor from WD40 can into the motor.gears.

4) There are replacement trippers for this timer, but no replacement clock motors.
Buy another single-pole in-wall timer.

Installing the battery can't get the door opened to insert battery


Drawer pulls straight out. Use small screwdriver or metal nail file.
Copy following link for illustration and CR2 battery, and ez-to-follow programming, and wiring options.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/ST01C-program.html#battery

Remember the drawer is also 'plugged' into the timer, so do not bend small metal prongs on drawer.

This timer comes with 1 year limited warranty against defects in workmanship.
The battery operates timer functions, so once battery is installed, the timer can be programmed before timer is installed in wall.
Be sure to reset timer before programming to eliminate stray code on the memory chip.
Once timer is programmed, the programs remain inside memory chip forever, even with power loss and no battery, until timer is reset of re-programmed.
Reset this timer: Hold down on-off button and momentarily push round reset button with paper clip. Keep holding down on-off until display changes, then release on-off button and begin setting current time and programs.

No digital display, does that mean the battery is dead


You posted under Intermatic ST01C timer.
Display on this timer goes blank when new CR2 battery is needed and when timer has gone bad.
Many times when a new battery is installed, the timer has to be reset and then reprogrammed.
If timer cannot be reprogrammed after battery install, then timer has gone bad.
Open following links for ST01C resources: ez programming and reset instructions.

Manual for defrost timer model# T000067709 a defferent timer was installed ,but now installing the right one need know the wiring for new timer


Hi, installing a defrost timer is not difficult if you know what the wires represent. Since you don't have a manual and you are removing the timer that was put on in place of the original one, I would call the manufacturer of the freezer for help on this. If you mis-wire it, you can burn the motor for the timer out. The freezer it self should have a schematic diagram pasted on it showing the wiring for the defrost timer? Check on it and see. Keep me posted and I will continue to look for one.
Sincerely,

Cannot get the timer switch to function w/ 3-way Levitron NOM 057


When installing a digital timer switch into a 3-way lighting circuit, you typically have to install a jumper wire across the "travelers" on the 3-way switch at the other end of the circuit, in order to get the timer to function.

If you have an Intermatic brand timer, the jumper is included with the timer switch, usually it will be a small, about 2-3 inches long wire with fork terminals on each end.

You should have the power turned off before installing the jumper. Also, there is a distance limit (75-80 feet of wiring) as to how far apart the two (2) switches can be from one another, in order for the timer to work (with the installed jumper).

Normally, the travelers are one the same side of a 3-way switch, but you can use a voltage detector to confirm which wires are which (prior to turning off the power) to make installing the jumper easier. If you contact the manufacturer of your particular timer, they can email you a owners guide/installation pamphlet that shows the proper installation procedures for your timer switch.

If you have an Intermatic product, you can use the link below to contact them for the needed info.

Wiring with another 3-way switch, works when other 3-way switch is on, clicks on/off when other 3 way switch is off


When installing a digital timer switch into a 3-way lighting circuit, you typically have to install a jumper wire across the "travelers" on the 3-way switch at the other end of the circuit, in order to get the timer to function properly, otherwise the switch operates erratically, as you've experienced

With an Intermatic brand timer, the jumper is included with the timer switch, usually it will be a small, about 2-3 inches long wire with fork terminals on each end.

You should have the power turned off before installing the jumper. Also, there is a distance limit (75-80 feet of wiring) as to how far apart the two (2) switches can be from one another, in order for the timer to work (with the installed jumper).

If you contact the manufacturer of your particular timer, they can email you a owners guide/installation pamphlet that shows the proper installation procedures for your timer switch.
