Jeff, almost sounds like a timer issue, but I was fooled on this once. Under the consol is a inline resistor from the main plug. If this resistor is bad, dryer keeps running in timed dry. Part number for the resistor is 3401076. Look it up on the web so you know what it looks like. Just splices in.. Catriver..post back.

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.

SOURCE: Removing Timer knob on Kenmore Electric dryer

Normally, to remove the timer knob, simply push in on the timer knob and turn the knob counter clockwise. it should unscrew itself. If it does not, the shaft inside the timer has broken and the shaft simply free wheels so then you need to take a needle nose pliers to hold the shaft and then you can turn the knob or pull it off

Let me know if you have any further questions

SOURCE: Auto Dry not advancing

It sounds like a timer problem since it happens during timed also. Some dryers don't have an actual moisture sensor for auto dry. They work by knowing that as long as the clothes are wet the temp won't go past a certain point. As the clothes dry it trips a thermostat that lets the timer advance. Until this is fixed DON"T trust the timer to shut off the dryer. Sometimes it won't or could leave the dryer running for hours. This has nothing whatsoever to do with fuses. There are no fuses in a dryer. Just high limit thermostats and other devices that will shut off the heat but usually not the motor.

Kenmore elite dryer # 110.70982990 timer problem


The timer is bad. Specifically the timer advance motor is going bad. It is a little electric motor located on the back of the timer. It movers the knob forward automatically as the dryer runs cutting down on time remaining. You usually have to buy the entire timer, you cant replace just that part.

Kenmore Heat Washer & Dryer Problems


Washer Will Not Start and/or Agitate <li> If the washer portion of your Kenmore unit will not start, make sure the lid is closed. The machine will not run if it is open. Verify that the power cord is plugged in securely and that no fuse has blown and no circuit breaker has been tripped. Ensure that the water supply faucets are turned on. Move the cycle selector knob to the desired position and pull out the knob. If none of these steps solve your problem, your Kenmore's motor may be overheated. The washer is designed to automatically stop working if this happens. Wait approximately 30 minutes for the motor to cool down. Once it does, the machine will automatically restart--as long as the power is on.<br />If your Kenmore washer starts, but won't agitate, the problem is likely a malfunctioning water level control switch. These are sometimes called a "pressure switch" or a "fill switch." Replacing this switch should solve the problem. </li> Timer Problems <li> Kenmore washers often have problems with the timer. Often, the machine may miss or skip sections of a cycle. Perhaps you have to "wiggle" the timer knob in order for the unit to run. If this is your problem, disconnect the power and take off the metal or plastic timer cover. See if any of the contacts are burnt or blackened. If your timer fails to advance at all, find the two small, black wires that lead to the timer motor. With the washer running, check these for 120 V, using a VOM (Volt Ohm Meter). If there are 120 V going to the timer motor, and yet it is still not running, it means you have a bad timer. Either rebuild or replace it. </li> Dryer Will Not Start <li> If you find that your Kenmore dryer runs when you press the "Start" button, but stops as soon as you let go of it, you probably have a problem with the even-heat control. This control board is located in the console of the dryer. You will need to replace this control board if it burns out. <br />The problem may also be with your thermistor, which is located near the thermostat, and may need to be replaced. It could be sensing the clothes are dry, when they are actually still wet. Thermistors are a lot less expensive to replace than a control board, so it may be wise to attempt replacing that first and seeing if it solves your problem. <br />In addition, there should be a 48VDC at the motor relay. Using a VOM, check the two pink wires at the motor relay. If you don't get the proper voltage, replace the motor relay. </li> Dryer Cycling Too Long <li> If your dryer cycle is taking too long, the lint screen may be clogged. Always remove all lint before beginning each cycle. Verify that the exhaust duct attached to your Kenmore machine is at least 4 inches in diameter and constructed of rigid or flexible metal. Check that the duct does not have more than two 90-degree bends. If your dryer (electric models) is connected to a 208-volt circuit, it will take 20 percent longer to dry than if it is connected to a 240-degree circuit. Remove any obstructions from the outside exhaust hood or duct. </li><span><br /><a href="http://www.ehow.com/way_6155718_kenmore-heat-washer-dryer-problems.html#ixzz1A42GXExq"></a></span>

Gas dryer heats at first then take forever to dry, auto dry setting does not advance


If it works to begin with and fails afterwards then that can only be them solenoids mounted on the gas assembly. Here is my home video which shows how to check and replace:

Timer counts down but doesnt shut off


same problem with Kenmore dryer Model No. 110.96250100. The timer would not advance under any setting. I replaced the timer and it only advances under timed dry but does not shut off when it times out. Under all other settings, the timer knob does not move, but the temperature stays warm. I checked the continuity on thermostats and resistor and, to the best of my knowledge, all passed. all in all, it appears to be a mechanical problem with your timer.

My kenmore dryer heat element goes on and off. The clothes take hours to dry.


It seems to run forever If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system. Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle: The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees. When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.) The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

The Timer Knob on my Maytag Dryer does not move. The drying just goes on and on unless I notice and stop the dryer.


While the dryer is turning slowly advance the timer knob to the end of the cycle. The dryer should stop. It sounds as if the timer motor has died or is not being powered for some reason and is not advancing the timer.

If it does not heat up, the element can also be faulty.

If you need to call a technician there is a phone number listed at the end of the user manual.
