  • Whlpl dryer no advance

    Jeff, I think I posted about this dryer a while back. Bad timer motor. Would it be worth the risk in buying a good used timer? Or is it a very likely possibility something in the dryer killed the timer motor?

    Timers are probably worth trying a used one.....not much in the dryer will hurt the timer or timer motor.

      Thanks Jeff. I was thinking maybe a resistor or something may have some kind of effect on the timer.

        Most resistors are up beside the timer....they often cut down the 240 volt power to 120 volts for the timer motor......most times if something happens to the resistor nothing happens to the timer other than it won't advance.

          So if something happens to the resistor, the timer gets no power, right?

          I don't even know if this one has a resistor. Looks like it may use 220 volts.

            Timer motor yes.....on the auto cycles.

            Should say right on the timer motor itself, there are some nowadays that are 220 volts instead of 120 volts.

              The motor would get power on auto cycles if the resistor was bad?

              This timer is (off the top of my head) 8299781. I do remember seeing 220 on it. May have been 110/220. Would it use one then the other at different times? You and I discussed it once a while back and thought it may use 220.

                120/220 on the timer body is usually the motor and heat contacts inside as some are for 120 volt items (motor) and some are for the 220 (heat) items.

                The motor would get power on auto cycles if the resistor was bad?
                The timer motor wouldn't get power if the resistor was bad on the auto cycles.

                  So I would actually need to test the resistor also before investing in a timer?

                    If the unit has one, sure...
