I have a Whirlpool Gold GGC9858HQ0 that dries and heats just fine, but it runs constantly.  My guess is that it is a "timer" issue, however, I thought that the dryer was supposed to shut off automatically when the clothes were dry.

The timer knob does not move at all.

Am I correct in assuming that I need to replace the timer?  Is the timer easy to get at and replace?

If you have a timed dry cycle see if it will advance on timed dry.  Usually a no advance in automatic goes back to a long dry problem because of the heating circit not staying on.

Pegi,

Thanks for replying so quickly.  The timer doesn't advance in any setting at all.  Not even timed drying.  That is why my first guess is the timer.

I don't have a long dry problem as it drys the clothes in 30 minutes (or less).  If anything, the heat might get a bit too hot. 

Is a timer hard to replace?

No but you cannot be sure it is the timer altho this sounds like it might be the problem.  Check the timer motor on the timer to see if it has continuity or not.  If the timer motor checks bad you have to replace the whole timer, and if it checks good it could also go back to the timer not feeding power to the motor.  You also have an electronic control board and moisture sensors but not sure if these are in play in the timed cycle.  We need to wait for input from others here that know more about this system..
