I have replaced the sensor, timer, and thermastat. The timer at the end of the cycle shuts off the machine but keeps moving and the heating element comes on and keeps repeting the cycle. There is no cool down at the end of the cycle. What am I missing?

Hi,

In reply to:

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer




Cute name, but this is not a model#.

In reply to:

The dryers motor acually shuts down/off....but the timer will advance through the off position?

In reply to:

and the heating element comes on and keeps repeting the cycle




The element comes on by it's self?...or just when the motor comes back on? The dryer will start up again on it's own?

Sensor? Which thermostat?

I beleive that is what is written. No the toumbler does not come on just the heating element.

Sensor? Which thermostat?
Thermal Cut off 3399848

Make sure ( remove power first ) that the contacts 1+ 2 are open ( no continuity ) when the motor is off.

Make sure the element is not shorted to ground

In reply to:

but the timer will advance through the off position?




Make sure the push to start switch is not welded closed.

None are sensors, one is operating thermostat, one is safety thermostat and high temp thermal fuse/cutoff.
