Hi ronaldopaz,

If your dryer timer does not shut off on timed or automatic cycles I would suspect the timer to be at fault.

It would be best to check the timer motor for voltage if you have a volt meter and know how to use it, but chances are it's just a bad timer and will need to be replaced.

You have your model number listed as LER5848E05 but I believe it should be LER5848EQ5.

I looked up the timer part number for model, LER5848EQ5 and found that it uses timer part number: 3976573

If you order it online please consider ordering it from one our parts affiliates using the links I posted below.

Check for voltage going to the timer motor.
