SOURCE: Kenmore Electric dryer runs on cool down forever.

Call the mfr and ask them about it. This problem may be pretty complicated. There may be a problem with your board that tells it to go to cool down. Can you set the timer for 45-60 minutes and it stay on heat for that long?

SOURCE: dryer is not heating. the dryer timer goes all

HI, The timer control module is the culprit. This device controls the heating functions of your unit. You have indicated that the timer will not stop the unit, and it continues to run after the cycles intended stopping point. This will confirm that the timer is damaged, and it should be replaced asap, if possible.

NOTE:-( Just to be safe, check the thermal fuse as well. This is a emergency cut-off fuse that will blow if the element overheats your unit. it is located on the blower housing, or vent duct inside the unit. Test the fuse for continuity. If it is ok, replace the timer).

Need to replace my dryer timer M460-G

The problem is that the new M460-G timer does not have the same terminal letters as the old one (because there seem to be a variety of sub-models under the M460-G name providing varying options such as an "air dry" function). However, I've at least been able to provide the basic timed heat function using a different M460-G on my old Frigidaire Crown Gas Dryer M/N FDGB23RGS2 . To do this, figure out the terminal functions by rotating the M460-G switch and measure with ohm meter and also inspect wiring diagram (mine was at appliance pros dot com).
On Frigidaire Crown FBGB23RGS2 Gas Dryer:
The original M460-G is wired:
Terminal / Function / Color
A / Gas / Org
B / Line voltage / Red
C / Motor / Wh
Timer wired between TM and C
AD / Auto Dry / Pink
TD / Start Switch and Motor / Tan

On other M460-G Gas Dryer timer (from mystery Dryer), I wired it to into my Crown dryer as follows:
Terminal / Function / Crown Dryer Wire color
BU / Line Voltage / Red
BK / Motor / Wh
R / Gas / Org
V / ? / No Connection
Timer wired between TM and BK
WB / switched on while Motor & Gas / Tan
OR / ? / Pink (figured it was safe)6b1460b2-ed5e-4c5d-b06b-c654e59e7487.jpg

I have a frigidaire heavy duty dryer an when I was moving it I had to take the top part off with the knobs on it now I forgot which wire goes where can u help me?

Each wire has a number on it or letters that coincide with letters and numbers on the timer. Not all dryers are exactly the same. You must post a model number for a better answer. I have a late model service manual on my frigidaire dryer page HERE

Shuts off during autodry cycle. stays on during timed cycle but clothes are wrinkled ans too hot at end of cycle.

if it works on auto but not on time you have a bad timer,it's not counting down,it's better to use auto anyway,when the clothes dry the dryer shuts off on it's own,this way your not using extra electricity,if your clothes dry in 30 minutes and it's on 60 minutes it will still run after the clothes are dry on auto it doesn't.if you open the door and look around the opening you'll see a tag with the model number,your missing a couple of letters on the model number.

Look on the loose wire for a letter or number, it will be one or two inches from the female spade connector end. Then look on the timer and look for an empty terminal and see if the number or letter matches the one on the wire. If so, bingo! Attach the wire to the timer and see what happens. Also you could look on the wiring diagram for white wire and see where it positivley goes. Good luck. Remember to do all work with the unit unplugged!!
