The timer continues to go around but it doesn't shut off it just continues all the way around. I have to open the door to stop it. Then today I went to empty the lint catch and it sounded like something fell down and the dryer shut off and now wont turn back on... :/ Please help!

It sounds like the timer is bad; expensive
also, the only way to get out something that fell into the blower box it to unplug the dryer and reach into the exhaust hole and try to reach it from there and if that fails then you have to take apart the machine.

Kenmore Series 80 electric dryer will turn itself back on after shutting off. I believe I can hear the timer continue to run after it shuts off.

if the timer pointer continues to travel around on to the next cycle all by itself after it has reached the end of a cycle you definitely have a problem with the timer. now however if it does that "and" starts to run on its own you also have a bad push to start switch as well.
good luck, have fun.

My Kenmore 80 series dryer won't shut off. It only stops when the door is open. Model #: 110.72822101

In timed mode, the timer has most likely failed and is not advancing. In auto-drying mode, the timer or the moisture sensor has most likely failed.

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.

80 series Kenmore just over 1 year old. Buzzer contiues to buzz, have to open door to stop instead of normal 5 second operation. Timer continues to run even after passing off.

Hi, Unfortunately this sound's like a faulty timer. Most of those 80 series Kenmore's have the buzzer/end cycle signal built onto the timer, that added to the issue of the timer continuing to advance past the "off" position indicator, I'd suspect a timer. You should check with Searspartsdirect or partsdepot etc. as well as any other local and on-line part's supplier on available new or rebuilt timer's. Often rebuilt timer's are just as good for half the price of a new one. Hope that help's. If so please give a rating on the info I provided to you here at fixya. Thank's for using fixya and come back if you need further assistance. Good luck macmarkus:)

Dryer keeps running and timer continues to move around dial.

Change your timer. It has a malfunction in it. it's about a 100 dollar fix. Also your start switch may be bad.
