Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't my dryer timer advance?

A:

If you have not tried the dryer in the timed mode, set the timer on a TIMED DRY cycle and see if the timer advances properly in this mode. If it does, then your failure appears to be in circuit that provides neutral conductivity for timer advancement in the auto cycles. The wiring diagram and cycle charts for your dryer are shown in the first image below. In the beginning of the auto cycles, the timer switch TT to TX (T - X) is open. The timer will only advance when the operating thermostat is satisfied and opens. If you have a heating circuit problem, a wiring problem or a failed resistor, then the timer will not advance in this automatic mode. The resistor in this circuit is the likely failure if the dryer is heating properly. If you are able to unplug the dryer, access and check the resistance of the resistor (Key 80 in the second image below), then you may find it open. The resistor would need to be replaced in this circumstance. The part number for the resistor is WE4M255. You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website. If you are not completely confident in your technical ability to safely access internal dryer components, then I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair this type of problem.

If the timer will not advance in the timed cycle, then you could have a failed timer motor, a failed timer switch (T - X or B - C) or a wiring failure in the timer motor circuit.

If you are able to unplug the dryer and find a wiring failure or component failure based on this technical information, then you may be able to repair the dryer yourself. If not, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and fix this dryer failure.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Your details imply the motor is not running. Replacing the blower wheel or blower housing will not repair the dryer.

If the dryer will not start, it could be caused by a lack of proper voltage, timer, door switch, thermal fuse or motor.

If you feel confident in diagnosing and repairing the dryer yourself, add additional details for specific trouble shooting assistance. You will need a volt/Ohm meter to diagnose the failure. The thermal fuse would be the first thing to check for continuity. I added a YouTube video showing how to test the thermal fuse and a video showing how to access the thermal fuse.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
