Sears Kenmore 70 series gas dryer wont dry in timed mode
« on: August 21, 2013, 01:22:02 PM »
But it will dry in auto mode.

Is this a timer issue?

Thank you

Need model number and more info. Does the dryer turn on? Does it heat?

Just had similar situation today with a customer.
It will not heat in timed dry but only in auto.
Found the timer at fault...It still works in auto for them but could not tell them how long it will last (timer contact's failing).  They needed a new timer.

Thank you for your respones.

I ended up replacing the solenoid set. What I think happened was when I tried the different mode they worked for a bit then quit for good. I made a guess and got lucky since I don't have a multi tester.

The good thing is the cost was offset by all the change I found!!!!

Thanks again
