My Kenmore electric dryer (model # 110.86582110, don't kow the age)
will not stop running. In timed mode and in auto-dry mode ("more dry .
. . less dry"), the dial does not advance at all and the dryer
continues to run and continues to heat, sometimes overnight and long
past when the clothes are bone dry. The dryer stops when the door is
opened and restarts when "push to start" is pressed".
After reviewing some posts in this and other groups, I checked the
voltage across the terminals to the timer motor and got a reading of
zero. I then disconnected the leads to the timer motor and applied 120
V and found that the timer did advance in timed mode.
Concluding that the timer assembly was defective, I purchased and
installed a new $87 timer. This did not solve the problem - the dial
still does not advance in either timed or auto-dry modes.
Where did I go wrong? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
