so is his how it works ?...I put soaking wet heavy jeans in the dryer...set it on the auto knit moisture sensing ...if 10 minuntes go by and the clothes are still very wet the stat wouldn't have shut off so the dial wouldn't move,,,but then as the clothes dry and the temp of the exit air is getting hotter the stat will shut the element off and advance the dial ??

When the dryer is heating the thermostat is closed and the timer just stays put because it don't have voltage to it.
When the dryer is not heating the thermostat is open and the timer then gets voltage so the timer motor can advance.

Think I got that right. Typing on my phone ha.
Either way power to the timer is cycled on and off as the thermostat cycles on and off.

That's the style dryer it looked like you had when I looked up the diagram for your model because I did not see a moisture sensor on your model or any electronic control board, just a basic model.

Hope that helps.

so as long as the clothes are still soaking wet the dryer will not stop heating and the dial wont move ?? im just trying to see,,,I put some heavy wet jeans in about 20 minutes ago,,,the dial hasn't moved...but when I set the dial this morning closer to shutting off with clothes that were almost dry the dial moved and shut off

I think using the dryer in this mode is "low heat"

"so as long as the clothes are still soaking wet the dryer will not stop heating and the dial wont move ??"

When it gets to temp the heater will cycle off even though the clothes are still wet. Then when it cools down a bit the heater comes back on.
As the clothes get dryer the time between the heater cycling on and off naturally changes as you don't have wet clothes affecting the temp.
Don't know how else to explain it.
