We got this unit into the store and the motor was a "hard start".  Shop owner gave me a motor, told me to replace it.

 

Replaced the motor and tested.  The unit reaches the end of the cycle, begins to buzz and does not stop buzzing.  Drum does not stop turning. 

 

One of the delivery guys scrounged a timer out of a scrap unit and installed that, with the same results.

 

Seems like I must have made an error in motor installation, but it sure did look like a plug-and-play.  Anyone have ideas?

Check and provide a complete model number. Shooting in the dark here but If you changed the timer then you more than likely have a relay problem. The relay is the likely suspect especially if the dryer continues to run even with the door open. Btw does this occur in every setting?

Dammit -- can't figure out how to edit the topic.  Model number is 110.60612990. 

 

The endless buzzer and the continued spin does happen in every cycle.

Resistor test at 4,950 ohms.  Ref chart says 5,000, so that seems within tolerance.

Timers are usually not interchangeable

For model 110.60612990 you should have

Timer 3977678

(if nothing else has been substituted)

yeah, i believe the relay is incorporated in the start switch here. More than likely his problem ruling out timer.

No relay, just a pair of contacts - known to weld together providing a path to buzzer through contacts meant to be "momentary"

I did double-check the timer, and it was the same part number. I hadn't thought about a bad push to start switch!  I will check that first thing on  January 2nd.  Happy New Year and thanks to all of you!

Does the Timer continue to run into the next Cycle ?

Good question.  No, timer does not advance.  Stays at the "end of cycle" mark.  Buzzer continues to sound and drum continues to turn.

I can't find a wiring diagram for that model,

(unless you have one you could scan & upload somewhere)

but all the Dryer Timers I can remember, disconnect the Drum Motor and Buzzer when in the "end of cycle" OFF mark

Ok....analyzing Senseis Reg and Kdogs questions...would it be fair to assume a bad start switch can prevent a timer from advancing to the "off" position? If so...did I snatch a small pebble?

... when the Dryer Cycle is finished ...

... timer does not advance.  Stays at the "end of cycle" mark.

... cycles to OFF and does not continue ...

I know this topic is marked as "answered" but the timer is the same, so that's not our issue.  Also, the PTS switch is correct.

 

Anyone have the instructions to the motor installation?  I remember ditching those when I saw the harness was a straight connection and that was probably a bad idea.

It was the Start Switch that solved your issue ??

... The unit reaches the end of the cycle,

1) Does the Timer reach the OFF position by itself ?

 

OR

 

2) if you turn the Timer to the OFF position, does the Drum and Buzzer turn OFF ?
