Yes beleive it or not, :? the timer will go counter-clockwise when the dryer is turner on.

It heats up well and seems to have no other problem other that I don't think it will ever shut off.:yikes:

Would the timer or the Electronic Control cause this new feature ????

How would I test to make sure?

 

Thanks in advance,

Willie

Well, no electronic control in this one. First question I'd be asking is....had any electrical work done in the house lately?

The drawing attached from Sears says Item 29 is the Electronic Control.

AH..funny thing was that I saw that, and didn't quite reply as I meant to. That is one of the older "Soft Heat" boards, it has no bearing on timer operation.

Well since the dryer has been in service in this house for more that 4 years and No one, I repeat no one has touched the electricity anywhere in my house, I'm to assume that the Timer going in reverse is a function of a bad timer and not other correct?  One thing that I did not state earlier is that the Timer goes in reverse whether it is in Auto Dry II, Timed, or Air Dry mode.

 

Anymore feed back?

Willie

Sort of sounds like some sort of power surge could have reversed the polarity of the motor...we see this all of the time on a/c motors...we also see the motors run backwards if the capacitor is wired backwards or has shorted, motor will run in referse...now your timer will not have a capacitor so would seem to indicate a power surge could have damaged the polarity of the windings....might want to order a replacement motor thru this site, if it does not solve the problem it can be returned less shipping both ways...
