    also check the door switch,open the door and push in the paddle,if it doesn't click the switch is bad,i would check with a meter and make sure power is going to the timer,the motor and the thermal fuse,if the fuse is popped it won't run,if the dryer had alot of lint in it most likely it will be the thermal fuse located on the blower wheel housing,you have to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,blow out the vent line i use a leaf blower and vac out the cabinet where the motor is

SOURCE: elect.dryer

waterbug The part number 696876 for the timer is still good part number. It is still available and it did not cross to different part number. Why you had to get the timer with different part number? If you will give me the complete model number for your dryer I can find for you the right timer and the best deal to buy it. Gendos.

SOURCE: Kenmore Dryer Timer does not advance

Timer resistance is way too low. You may have misswired the new timer. Basically, when the dryer motor is running, the timer motor gets voltage 115 volts.

Check to see if the door switch is working. When you push and release it, it should click. If not, it will need to be replaced.
If the switch is good, then the only other component that would cause that problem is the thermal fuse. If you could post your model number I could direct you to the part you need.

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer not heating and not cutting off


I had an identical problem to yours this weekend with my Kenmore dryer. There were 2 problems.

1. Timer was broken. Does not advance to "OFF" position on timed dry, however it still works for auto-dry.

2. Thermal fuse was blown. Upon replacing, dryer heated up normally.

I believe when the timer broke, the dryer had kept running and blew the thermal fuse. On Sears' website, thermal fuse is $5.30, timer is roughly $80.
