Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer
I had similar problem and ran the dryer without vent connection and timer advanced and the machine stopped in auto dry. Vent had good amount of lint stocked ever since the dryer was installed (2000).Dryer are sensitive to airflow.Earlier never stopped and timer never advanced.

This may not be the solution to your exact problem but for those looking for why there timer will not advance and why it keeps running even when the items are dry: The usual problem is not the timer but the mosture sensor (if your dryer has one).
1: Check the mosture sensor light/indicator. If is still shows some mosture or flashes even when the items are dry, you have a mosture sensor problem, probably not a timer issue - luck you.
2: Check if the timer will advance and the dryer will turn off when you have it in the TIMED mode (i.e. 10mins - NOT the more/less dry modes.) If so, then it is indeed a sensor problem.
2: Check that the wires to the mosture sensor have not fallen off (as in my case - a simple repair). The senor is usually two metal bars somewhere near the front part of the inside of your dryer. You may have to take off the door and the front pannel (be sure to unplug the dryer first) to get at the two wires to clip on to the sensor. Clean any lint and make sure they are conneted. If well connected then replace the sensor ($15-$20 and very easy to do).

My kenmore dryer stopped rotating. It starts but shuts off and no movement of the drum.

I have a kenmore dryer. I purchased it brand new from sears in August 2001. I have noticed about 3 weeks ago when I went to dry my clothes that the timer does not move. The dryer still heats up, it takes a little longer to dry but it still works. Can you tell me what may be wrong with it. I am wondering if the repair would be cheaper or should I invest in another dryer!

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.
