think the timer is junk like mentioned above....tied T and W .....dryer starts but no heat, but dryer will not stop when dryer is forced to the OFF position on the timer dial....just keeps on turning and turning, turning and turning.......Get this..I open door to stop dyer then close it, then press start button the dryer will only run if the start button is held down....hmm? So I unplug it from wall replug it and what do ya know---it starts up and stays running w/o holding down the start button, but still with no heat......real head scratcher



Heater..... ......good

All limits..........good

Start button....good


Any thoughts? oh I have no wiring diagram to go by so if any one has one plz share if possble

Did you find a new spring and shaft seal - I was expecting to see that spring broken from the original problem you had!


Other than that It sounds like you have it all now.

yea spring was fine but rusty....seal was gone hence: the water in the case, so I have replaced it with new old stock spring and seal I found on eBay a month ago.


Just received delivery conformation...parts will be here next week!


the original problem was a broken T-bearing

Make sure when you put it back together you don't forget the ball bearing first then the round thrust disc that go under the agitator shaft ref# 11 & 12 in this picture:



About 11 and 12....now I found the BB,  but the round thrust disc was lost in dumping the water/oil sludge in the gearcase.....RRRR!! I was surprised to see the bearing down there and come to find out there was a disc down there too??


What was the disc made from? I may need that part # as well....found this from a cross ref gearcase looks like 64 & 65


Looks like the peps over @ http://www.appliance...tscompany.com  are gonna have the ball bearing & the round thrust disc


Anything else in your opinion that would need to be replaced to make this gearcase rebuild right since I have it apart?
