    Default GE Electric Dryer Timer does not advance

    GE dryer issue. Model # DJXR433EC3WW. Dryer seems to dry clothes sufficiently but the timer motor does not advance in automatic mode and shut-off when dry. In "timed" mode, the timer does advance to shut off.
    Dryer has also intermittently shut down on high temperature switch as if the duct was blocked but this has been checked and all is OK. Any advise ??

    Hi,

    Dryer has also intermittently shut down on high temperature switch as if the duct was blocked but this has been checked and all is OK.

    If the heat doesn't cycle the heat on and off on the operating thermostat the timer will not advance in auto cycles.
    Try the dryer with the vent removed/off of the dryer as a test.
    Clean the facing of the operating thermostat ( should be on the fan blower housing ).
    Check the lint filter ( http://www.applianceaid.com/dryer-lint-filter-tip.php ).
    Check for lint built up under the lint filter area just before the fan blower wheel.
