Customer Question

We have an Kenmore 800. It will work for 2 loads of cloths with the timer. But will not work with timer after 2nd load.
Have to use "More Dry" on "Auto Sensing" to make dryer work and dry cloths.

Can I get the full model number to better assist you? It should be located on a sticker just inside the door way and seen if you open the door.

Perfect, thank you. So on this model the only thing that can cause your issue would be a weak contact inside the timer itself. There is a control board the controls the heat and a separate relay that controls the motor, but those wouldn't just work on one setting but not another. It sounds like the contact inside your timer is getting warm after running a couple cycles and then the contact won't flex properly and make contact anymore until it cools down. If you choose a different setting it uses a different contact in the timer on some settings so that is why it'll work on a couple other settings. Either way, the timer itself would need to be replaced to resolve the issue so below is a link to the part if you wanted to order it. CLICK HERE for timer We are on the honor system here.
