I have a Sears Kenmore dryer model # 110.97273800. The dryers operaters but no heat. In addition, the timer no longer counts down after dryer is turned on. I think that the timer is out. Can this be preventing the unit from heating.

Hello ajsellin and welcome to the site.

Your correct. The timer is most likely the cause. This part is the brains of the dryer. If it fails to count down the minutes, it is defective.

Unplug the dryer. Remove the upper rear panel behind the control panel. Then make a hand drawing of the back end view of the timer.

Next, make a hand made drawing of the locations of each wire harnesses location on the timer control. Then remove the quick disconnect wires. Then remove the timer. Take the timer to the appliance retail parts store for testing.

Be sure to write down the make, model and serial number and bring it to the parts store too.
