A:

I understand the concern with having this problem with the dryer since you replaced the drum bearing. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I did some research on the unit. I was unable to locate information that would be helpful with regards to your question at this time. Your expert will answer within two business days. I also added the link below to Sears Home Services, if you need to set service. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

First, make sure you did not leave any wires disconnected or any thermostats wired incorrectly. Also, check the heating coil to see if is sagging and touching any part of the heating element housing.

In order for the timer to advance in the automatic dry cycles, the control inlet thermostat must open or the drum outlet thermostat must open depending on the heat setting in order to shut off the heater before the timer motor will have voltage. The drum outlet breaks the L1 voltage to the inner coil for lower a lower operating temperature. You should try setting the temperature switch for lower temperature and see if the timer will advance and to see if the heater cycles off. The timer motor will only have voltage applied to it when the heater shuts off when control inlet opens or when the drum outlet thermostat opens. If the heating element coil is shorted to the heater housing, the heater will also stay on.

I recommend checking the heating element coils to see if one sagging and shorting to the element housing and I would check the drum outlet and the control inlet thermostats. If one of the two is not opening and breaking the line one voltage supply to the heating element, the timer will not advance.

I added an image of the wiring diagram in the second response.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Hi,

Thank you for asking this question and allow me to answer it this way.

No it is not safe. What compartment are you referring to, where the power cord goes into the rear of the cabinet? If so the yellow wire in the cabinet is a ground wire. If you are referring to a timer inside of the console let me know and I have sent you a diagram. Yellow goes to the white center tap on the terminal block.

I hope this answer is useful and that it helps you correct the problem with your appliance.
Thank you for using ManageMyLife.

Yes it is from the timer switch, in the above compartment, it has an eye on it looking like a screw goes through it. Once I screwed it to the frame I turned it on and found out that the element is glowing hot and smells like it is burning up. I never recieved the wireing diagram. My email is trolldaddy1974@yahoo.com if you would like to send it to me directly.
