I have a drier model# XXXXX At the end of the cycle the motor shuts off like normal but the heating element stays on. I have to unplug the drier to kill the heating element. I suspect the timer is the problem. I searched for a replacement timer and found pn PS383652. Unfortunately this pn is apparently no longer available. My question is, can a newer model timer be used in this older drier and if so what timer should I use? Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
So you are saying the heater element may be grounded to it's frame or the centrifical switch inside the motor is not opening when the motor stops is that correct? I have a new element ordered which should be here tomorrow if I install the new element and it still does not shut off the heater then I will need to replece the motor, correct?
