Dryer Pulser Timer Removal

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if the pulser timer can be disconnected? I don't want the dryer turning back on periodically (wrinkle control feature) for who knows how long. This is a Sears electric dryer.

Only if you have options on the console to turn this wrinkle guard on or off.  If you do not have this option there is no way to trun this off without turning the dryer off or opening the door.  Pegi

I was thinking I could cut some wires, but I don't have a schematic.

The tumble press or wrinkle guard only runs at the most for 2 hours.  The timer gives power to the motor thru the push-to-start relay every 5 minutes for about 5-10 seconds to tumble with no heat to keep the clothes from wrinkling till you can take them out of the dryer.  Opening the door will stop this process.  The timer controls this function.  Do you have another cycle that does not have the wrinkle guard feature?  If so, just use this other cycle.  Do not go clipping wires, you may lose a lot more than wrinkle guard.....Pegi

Yes, I understand the purpose of the wrinkle guard and don't want it. I also don't want to have to go down to open the door after each cycle before I'm ready to remove the clothes. If I saw a schematic, it should be easy to determin which wires need to be "re-routed". And, no, I don't have another cycle without the wrinkle guard. I guess I'll search online for possible schematics. Thank you for your responses.
