I am humbled masters and gurus of the laundry universe. My Whirlpool dryer works correctly on all settings but once it starts, the timer remains in the time selected and will not advance.  Timer replacement?  Is that an easy task for a simpleton such as myself?

 

 

I and gracious

LE5800XSW3 c.1988
Timer doesn't advance in the Normal (non_Auto) Dry cycles ?
may be bad Timer
(may need to measure voltage at Timer Motor)
easy relacement, but not cheap

Thank You Grand Master.  I've read something about measuring the voltage while the door is open vs. close are these the voltages you're referring to?

 

Gracious again

I don't have a wiring diagram for that model

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

 

There should be 120v AC at the Timer Motor at the beginning of a Normal Dry cycle when the Dryer is running.
