Hello my name is***** will be assisting you with this problem today. Thanks for trusting JA to help you with this appliance question.

When the dryer does not shut off is that in timed dry or auto dry or both?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I believe on both settings

Ok don this one is fairly easy to diagnose if the timer does not turn on auto or timed dry.

The problem is the motor on the timer is bad or there are bad contacts, This means the timer would need to be replaced. I looked the part up and included a link below, this supplier seems to be the only one that has it in stock.

Click here to order the timer.
