GE gas dryer timer not advancing?

9 posts in this topic

Return call on a GE dryer model DVL223GB1WW. I replaced the gas valve coils due to an intermittent heat problem also replaced drum seals.

Checked vent from dryer to outside, clean and only two foot long.

   Customer called they did several loads, then didn't get heat.  Dryer would heat on timed dry, but timer didn't advance on cotton setting(more dry-less dry etc. I checked thermostats for continuity. seemed ok.

 

Not sure what to do next?

Timer is not available til Jan 20 or so.

 

Thanks Walter

  If timer is not advancing in timed dry, then timer is bad. It is available now at appliancepartspros which has the same warranty.

If it doesn't heat in auto dry the timer will not advance.

Timer does advance in timed dry. It is the auto dry side that doesn't seem to advance. 

Does anyone have the service manual or wiring diagram.

Ohhh... That's a Frigidaire in GE 's clothing. Notice the price of the GE part#...wow!

No wiring diagram but a suggestion.

There's a little resistor wire that connects 2 terminals on the timer. It should have continuity, something like 5000 ohms I think.  

With the dryer running in the auto dry cycle   and the cycling thermostat satisfied (burner off), the motor on the timer should be getting around 120 volts. If so, it's a bad timer.

No heat problem ended up being a bad igniter, only lasted two or three loads. Its  been running  good for a week now.

 

Thanks for the help!
