Can you turn off the circuit by moving the on/off lever manually, or by turning the time dial manually? Does the time dial rotate and keep time? If not, I'd double check the wiring diagram on the door of the enclosure first.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II gas dryer won't turn off.

Dryer Won't Stop Running
  • Ultimate Car II Dryers are fitted with a mechanical timer that sends an impulse to the control circuit board to stop running once the set amount of drying time has elapsed. This is because, should an electronic timer fail, this would necessitate the replacement of the entire circuit board. Confirm that the mechanical timer is indeed broken by opening the dryer's door. If the dryer stops, the circuit board is working fine and is not the problem. Simply slide off the protective faceplate of the dryer, unscrew the control board beneath, and flip it over. Connected to the back of the timer's knob should be a small round device with two wires running to the circuit board within the body of the dryer. Unscrew this device from the back of the knob and disconnect the wires. A replacement timer costs a few dollars and should screw into place without trouble. Reconnect the wires and put the dryer back together. It should work fine now.

The timing knob on my dryer wouldn't turn, it would just spin without selecting a setting so I pulled the knob off and tried using pliers to turn the plastic shaft to select a setting. It worked a couple...

Both the timer and the knob is replaceable.
Locate the model number of the unit. Here's info on how to find it:!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=+86673100&pathTaken=partSearch

You can get the timer and the knob from or call 1-800-252-1698.
Once you have the part, remove the screws from the back of the control panel, removing the back cover. From there you should see the timer. It will either have one wiring harness or many wires attached to the timer. INSURE UNIT IS UNPLUGGED WITH NO POWER TO IT. If there is a harness, unplug the harness. The timer will be held in place either by a couple screws on the front of the control panel that is normally hidden by the knob AND/OR a screw INSIDE the control panel at the timer. There could also be a plastic tab holding the timer in place. Raise this tab and turn timer until it is free. Remove timer and put new timer in place. Fit harness onto timer.
If there are many wires attached to the old timer, I would hold the new timer in my hand and transfer the wires one-by-one to insure you get the right wires on the right terminal tab. Once wires are transferred, remove old timer and put new timer in place.
At this point. put new knob on the timer on the front of the control panel. Plug unit in, stay clear of exposed wiring, and test dryer. If it works, replace back cover and you are done.
If it doesn't work, further troubleshooting will be needed and Ill need the make and model number.
Hope this helps. Please take a minute to give a testimonial if I've help you.
Thanks, G

Install trim and adjust the thermostat on a Grohe shower faucet

Before you install the temperature control knob, adjust the valve body (47111) with a wrench to set the temperature to "100 degree or close to it". Now, place the limit ring to tdc (top dead center) and control knob with the red 100-degree align to it. Your problem may have been the valve's temperature setting is out range when you installing the temperature control knob.

Washer filled with water but will not start the cycle

Sounds like you have a bad timer, not too hard to fix. Just get yourself to an appliance parts store and give them the model of your machine and tell em that you want a timer. They should be knowledgeable on how to install it but if not its a pretty simple task. Just unscrew the control panel from in back so that it can flip up. Then pull the knob off the front of the timer and unscrew it. Next move over the wires one at a time being careful to put them on the same prongs as on the original one. Then screw the new timer in place being sure that its going in the same way the old one came out. Then screw it in, put the knob back on, screw down the control panel and you should be good to go.

Brew group will not go back in.

I have solved this problem many times...
First remove steam knob by depressing small clip on shaft of knob and pulling the knob out...gently. Note where the dials in the bean tank are set to, you will have to position these knobs to the same position upon reassembly.
Remove the 2 bean tank screws and remove the bean tank.
Remove the 2 screws holding on the top cover.
Lift the top cover off enough to get to the circuit board.
Unplug one of the 3 wire connectors along the top of the circuit board, turn the machine on and it will start to turn the splined shaft.
At the 180 degree point turn the machine off.
If it does not cycle through to 180 degrees then try the other 3 wire plug... one of them will be the right one.
Put the brew group back into the machine and reassemble.
This repair will take you less than 10 mins. from start to finish.

Stop Motion Knob

Dear Jim,
I'm sure you have a pair of Channel lock pliers around.Place a fairly thick piece of fabric around the inner knob to keep from scratching it. Grasp it with the pliers while holding the handwheel and turn it to the left. IF you can't hold the wheel to keep it from slipping, place a screwdriver or something else under the needle set screw area, turn the wheel until the set screw is resting against the set screw and then turn the inner knob with the pliers.
