Thanks for the question.
Does it take you longer to dry a load of clothes it may not be the timer.
Hi. No, it doesn't take longer for the clothes to dry -- I just set a timer in the kitchen, & when time's up, open dryer door, & take clothes out.
When my kids were visiting, my daughter washed & dried a couple of loads, & the next time I used it after that, the machine didn't (doesn't) stop automatically. Just keeps on drying -- it could probably continue for hours if I didn't stop it. I will tell you this, my plumber is the one that believes it's the timer -- I don't really know!!!
This is kinda neat - I'm in contact w/ a company/service I never knew about.
The number 41 on the breakdown can cause this problem as well its the cycling thermostat .
The timer can only be sent in to Sears and they will rebuild you old one .
You can call them sometimes the have some in stock.
