How do I program a Woods indoor light timer Model 50009 ?

my timer seems to have same buttons, but not same model. first you have to put in the correct day and time.
next you push the prog button it should be for time to start timer first, then it will ask what day or days to you want it to work they will be flashing at the top of the screen if it is like mine you can pock one day, Mom - Fri, Sat & Sun, or all week, when what you want is flashing press set, now the times should start to flash set hour first and if not sure if it has AM and PM use the 24 hour clock say you want it to come on at 5pm that is 1700 hours off at 11pm that is 2300 hours. after pick hour press set, the mins will blink, pick press set, then the sec, press set so now it should be the come on time. press prog again and it should be the time off now press set, pick days same as above set, hours set, min, set sec set. that should be what you need. I always try it on a lamp that I can set on the kitchen table and play till I know the right sequence. set for it to come on now everyday and stay on for 5 minutes if that works than just do the same thing all over again for the times you actually want, saves waiting to see if it is going to work.
Mine has about 4 different programs that can be set on same timer, I have never got that brave, but I would assume it is just the same procedure on prog 2, 3, or 4. good luck hope it helps

Duet dryer problem - GEW925PWO control panels do not automatically set. When they do give lights and time like they are accepting, they are not matching up with what the control is set on. The whole left...

hi The dryer timer, located in back of the control panel, controls several things: the drying time of the clothes in the drum, the flow of electricity to the heating element, and the flow of power to the timer motor and the drum motor in the dryer cabinet. Timers are driven by synchronous motors. Although the contact part of the timer can be cleaned and adjusted on some dryers, this is a job for a professional repair person. Timer motor repairs should also be handled by a professional, but you can replace a faulty timer yourself. Here's how to test and replace a dryer timer:
Step 1: To access the timer, remove the front of the control panel. On some dryers, the timer can be removed without removing the panel. In either case, pull the timer knob off the shaft and slip off the pointer. The pointer is usually keyed to the shaft by two flat surfaces to keep the pointer from slipping when it's turned.
Step 2: Test the timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Turn the timer to the NORMAL DRY setting and disconnect one of the timer power leads. Some timers may have several wires connected to them: The power leads are usually larger than the other wires, and this size difference can be spotted under close examination. Clip one probe of the meter to each timer terminal. If the meter reads zero, the timer is working. If the needle jumps to a high reading, the timer is faulty and should be replaced. Replace the timer with a new one of the same size and type.
Step 3: To replace the timer, have a helper hold the new timer close to the old one, especially if there are several wires to be changed. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram detailing the proper connections. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for accuracy.

Dryer won't start

Hard to tell for sure without looking at hands on, but I think you are looking in the right direction as to it being the timer. If you know someone locally that works on appliances you could have them check it for you. Sounds like something may have come apart inside the timer or a contact came apart and it is no longer making proper contact.

My maytag model mdg9206bww dryer will not shut off on permanent press or delicates, it will dry somewhat but the unit never shuts off, if I put it on timed air fluff, the timer goes and it shuts off...

When was the last time you got your ducts cleaned? If they r full of lint then the moist air never gets outside and stays in the machine hence the clothes never dry. Might not solve the issue but they need to be done as they r also a fire hazard.

The timer on my dryer isn't working properly

HI. the timer motor is damaged at this point. The Auto sector is dead. This is not a serviceable part, and you will need to replace the entire timer mechanism to correct this issue.

Electric dryer timer

the auto temp sensor is bad / Larry

Electric dryer wont heat or turn off

there could be a temperature switch that tripps off. look at the diagram and trace also the power to the timer motor. it seems that you lost your power to your timer motor that is why the timer stays @ what ever setting you set it.
