A:

In that auto cycle, the timer is advanced using the neutral path that is drawn in the first image below. There is a resistor in that circuit that could be bad. You could also have a wiring failure or a problem with that inner coil of the heating element that would prevent the timer from advancing in the manner that you are describing. I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the resistor in the console first. That component is shown ask Key 80 in the second image. You can check the resistance through that component using a volt/ohm meter (with the dryer still unplugged). If that component is bad, then it will need to be replaced. You can order it from this page: Resistor for Hot Point Dryer NBXR453EV0WW . Be sure that the dryer is unplugged when you replace that resistor.

If the resistor is okay, then I recommend that you check the inner coil of the heating element and the wiring in that circuit. If you need more help with those checks, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

What kind of numbers should I be getting with the volt meter when I test the resistor or the inner coil to know that the part is either good or bad?

I recommend that you check the resistance of those components with the dryer unplugged instead of trying to check voltage. The resistance of that resistor should be about 4500 ohms according to that wiring diagram. You should measure about 19.2 ohms through that inner coil of the element. If either component is electrically "open" (measures Ol -- open load or infinite resistance) then the bad component will need to be replaced. This initial check may help you determine the cause of your failure. Reply with additional details if you need more help.
