I have a Kenmore Series 700 electric dryer that the timer isn't advancing on.

Here are the facts;
  • Timer will not advance in either automatic or timed mode
  • Dryer heats normally otherwise
  • Shuts off when door opens, and won't restart until start is pressed again
  • Will shut off when timer is turned to the off position
  • When stopped by door open/closing, "whirring" sound can be heard from timer until turned to off position
I'm thinking this is a timer issue and not involving the thermostat or moisture sensor. Any thoughts before I drop $70 on a replacement timer? Thanks.

See if the timer motor (two black wires) is getting 120vac. If it is, the timer is toast. Part link ==> Part number: AP3859587

Let me clear that up, I meant that when the dryer is stopped after opening the door and then the door is closed, the timer makes noise if it's still in a running (non-off) position.

Before I give the impression of being too clever, is there a quick and easy way to access it without dismantling the entire panel? I have a schematic, but it's difficult to determine what holds it to the cabinet. I say this without having actually gotten my lazy butt up from the computer to go look at the actual dryer. I just don't want to take apart components needlessly and then not be able to get them back together.

Just to follow up, the timer arrived and was installed this past weekend. Seems to have fixed the issue. Thanks for the help. Just to clarify, the video that was posted did not apply to my particular model. The timer on mine is accessed by releasing a pair of spring clips that hold the console to the cabinet. Then the console flips up providing easy access, something I figured out only after removing several screws from the back that did nothing.

Thanks again for the assistance.
