Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

Hi The timer isn't working so I tested it, to make sure I did it right here's how... Turned breaker off (220v) Removed one lead, put the clips on both power leads, set multimeter to ohms, turned timer on and the multimeter read 0. From what I've read this means the timer is good. The dryer heats fine, but timer doesn't work in either Accudry setting or timed drying setting. Any ideas on what would be my next step? whirlpool dryer LEN2000kQ1

So my intermetic time is broken, the gears dont turn, and the on/ off override isnt working. I need my pool heater, what do i do?


Sounds like you lost power to the timer. Look in your electric panel for a tripped breaker. Turn it OFF then back ON.

When checking outside light the timer is going to, the multimeter reads 120v but the lights will not turn on. There are also outside outlets on the same circuit and they are reading 105v but cannot run...


Turn off power between each action listed below.

Is dial rotating and keeping time on timer?
This will tell you if 120V is arriving and working at timer.
Cut ground wire and check circuit again.
This can narrow down ground fault problem.
Disconnect wires from timer and connect wires direct to outdoor lights.
This will tell you if timer is suspect.

List all things on same circuit breaker, and test each to find which are working.
Each electrical box is connected to next box and to next box back to circuit breaker.
Open each box and check for loose wires, signs of burning.
This will narrow down location of problem.

When working in main breaker box, the wires on main breaker have power at all times, even when main breaker is turned off. This is true unless meter is pulled. Always stand on dry boards and never lean into or touch anything else when working in main box. Do not hold screwdriver between teeth.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from voltage.
Test voltage at circuit breaker. Make sure neutral and ground are attached tight on busbar. Make sure black wire is attached tight to breaker. Move black wire to another same-size circuit breaker. Disconnect ground wire and test circuit again to check if ground fault is causing problem.

Clock doesn't run


Your timer has a manual override. Does 240 circuit work when manual override is turned on? If 240 V circuit works but clock doesn't, then you need another clock.

WW Grainger sells clock motor for $16
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/wwg/search.shtml?searchQuery=Wh40&op=search&Ntt=Wh40&N=0&sst=subset

If circuit doesn't work when timer override is on, then check circuit breaker.

Both legs of 240 V breaker must be hot for T-104 clock to work. A 240V circuit can appear to have power if only one leg of the circuit breaker is hot. Test breaker or move wires to another same-size breaker to test for sure.

Intermatic Time switch T104M. Clock won't turn


I'm asuming you have 220V since this is a 220v Timer. See diagram at site:
http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/t104%20-%20english.ashx

Pay attention that the incoming circuit hots should be on 1 & 3 the same terminals that the clock motor leads connect to. Just to be sure it's a 220V clock motor, look at the back of the motor (it snaps out of the enclosure) and be sure motor says 220V If you have 110V the you need a T103

Hi,
This could be a bad timer. Try changing setting on timer and truing it on. One thing for sure you have a dead short... This could be the timer or the motor or it could be a wire inside the cabinet shorted out... There should be 2 clips on the top front of machine that hold the top douwn use a putty knife or other thin but stiff object to pust in on those clips while pulling up on top at the same time then you can fold the top back out of the way and just look for anything unsuual. Burnt/ broken wires loose wires etc... The front will need to be removed to observe motor area... Usually 2 screw at top left and right the pullout and up... Smell around the motor for that burned rubber smell.
Please let me know if I can do anything else to help

Can I test dryer timer to see if its any good?


I do not think a "NO HEAT" problem can be caused by the timer.
Sounds like another electrical problem:
Have you check the house breaker or wall receptacle to see if you are feeding 220V to your dryer?
Have you check your hi-limit thermostat to see if it has continuity?

Those are the most common causes of "NO HEAT"

Need to silence "done" alarm


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.
