I have a kenmore 6.7cu ft super capacity HE2 gas dryer that has been having issues with the timer for some time now. It seems that it gets hung up or stuck and actually runs for much much longer than the time originally set for. ANother fun little tidbit is that it isnt uncommon for me to go check on the dryer and see that the timer reads, 75, 81, 86 etc or a variety of other odd high numbers. I looked at it the other day and it said 6 minutes left so I went and did some other things - came back 20 min later and it still said 6 min.
Anyone see anything like this and possibly know the cause? I have an appointment with a SEARS tech to come look at it but they charge either 129 or 205 to fix it depending on if you buy the protection plan which supposedly protects you from repairs where parts are expensive. If I could fix this by myself or somehow do it cheaper I would be eternally grateful for the info.
Thanks in advance
