Whirlpool dryer timer problem

The timer on my whirlpool dryer quit turning the dryer off, I was told it was the timer and I bought a new one and we installed it and it still doesn't turn the dryer off, so i guess I waisted 90.00. All of the wires are hooked on correctly so it can't be that, is there anything else that will prevent the timer from turning the dryer off?? The timer doesn't move at all while the dryer runs. Did the same thing w/other timer.

thanks Barb

I called the store we bought the timer from and he told me if it is deffective he will get me another one. So, if anyone knows what it might be other than the timer it will be greatly appreciated, if it can be nothing else but the timer I would like to know that also, we have no idea how to check this timer or where to take it, any help with that will also be greatly appreciated.

Hello Barb and Welcome into my Gas Appliances topic.

Timer very likely the cause. The timer does control all operations and functions. But the timer (new or old one) also has to advance through each cycle. If you can provide this information, please do so.

Supply what info? It does not advance through the cycles as I have stated. It does not move at all and have to turn the dryer off manually. The old timer did the same thing so I don't think it is the timer, what I'm asking is if it's not the timer what else could it possibly be??????

Thanks for your reply, barb

I am having a similiar problem with my kenmore dryer. It seems as if the timer is running, but never turns off the dryer. Although when the dryer is off, I can hear the timer actually "ticking" - just never moves.
