That resistor is only used during auto-dry but your model doesn't have the resistor anyway, yours uses an electronic control board for auto-dry. Your problem is in timed dry, so looks like you have a bad timer.

I have a Kenmore dryer that wont shut off. In timed dry mode, it stops heating with about 5 minutes to go but continues to turn until I open the door.
I'd like to not have to buy a new timer switch if possible.
I found another thread where the user had the same problem, and he corrected the problem by replacing the resistor (that is his picture attached, not mine).
If the resistor could also be my problem, I would like help finding where this resistor is located on the dryer. If my resistor is not the problem, do you think it's the timer switch?
Model no: 110.62852101

Depends on if it is a run or start capacitor. I have installed on both without and had no problems. If it won't start with a RO41 it won't start with a genuine relay either I have found. Once the relay is gone they are on borrowed time I tell them. If the RO41 won't start it a 410 with the cap may but it won't last.

Start a new thread and give us the dryer model number.

Hello all, I just googled this same problem for my own dryer and ran across this forum. If possible, I'd like to save the $100 on the dryer timer switch too. My problem is I can't find this resistor in my dryer (Kenmore). I looked in the back panel but didn't see any resistors that looked like that one. Could someone tell me where on the dryer this resistor is located?
Thanks in advance!

Bertus I found this thread making reference to a few other codes but they still did not have all the others http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?topic=13331.new#new
Apparently 20 adjust the cool select deli drawer.

Hi Gypsy I accidentally pressed the wrong code and changed its setting so I just reset all to 0 and everything seems fine. I did go back and reset my fridge and freezer since i needed them to be cooler. Cool Select 20 is the slide out deli drawer I assume? This I may also need to adjust but wanted to make sure I was selecting the correct code.....

ok let me ask u a question on that product [ro41] the package says that if comp uses a cap to install cap in series with white wire.is that correct or a misprint?their other unit 810 says to put cap in parallel with red/white wire when i tried the ro41 as instructed it wouldnt start comp...?

Hi, I am also interested to know what these codes mean, so if anyone has an answer that would be great. I need to calibrate the deli drawer if it is possible in a SM-RF263BEAESR. Thank you
