Dryer wont stop buzzing


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Timer
The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is bad and need replaced. If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. replace the heating elements

My dyer wont heat and timer wont move changed the thermal fuse and cleaned all the lint out of the blower box and put in new venting pipe


Make sure you have 240 going into the dryer. If one side of the breaker is tripped it is posible for the dryer to run because the motor runs on 120 volts ac. The heat uses 240 volts. Next check the heavy red wire coming out of the timer. Remove it from the timer and attach a lead from an ohm meter to that leg on the timer. See if you can get a reading from any other leg on that timer. Move the dil to various spots on the timer and keep checking for continuity. If you cannot get a reading from that terminal to any other terminal on the dryer then you have a bad timer.

Whrilpool washer/dryer stack the dryer doesn't get hot


You will find that the drier wont get hot because the timer is not forwarding onto the heating part of the cycle. Possibly if you click one click at a time, you will possibly get to the heating part of the cycle but its not safe as it wont go any further. Install a new timer and you will be happier I'm sure.

Model WED5300SQ0 not heating and timer not working


Well with moving it around and all it could have any number of things happened. If it wont tumble, no lights, no heat or anything check that the plug has 240volts to it. then check the wiring going into the dryer may have broke wires or anything like that. but I would check the plug first if it has no power what so ever. If you check the plug and it doesn't have power check the breaker to see if it is tripped.

Timer Does not Move


FIRST CHECK YOUR VENT IS CLEANED OUT THEN SEE IF TIMER MOVES WHEN PUT TO A TIMED CYCLE. IF SO MEANS VENT CLOGGED UP. IF STILL NOT MOVING MEANS TIMER CONTROL BAD. COST ABOUT 80-100 FOR PART. YOU COULD DO YOURSELF IF SOMEWHAT HANDI.

COULD BE ORDERED FROM SEARS PARTS DIRECT BY YOU.

OTHER WISE CALL SERVICER AND MAY COST 200.00 TO REPAIR. HOPE THIS HELPS
