It might just be the timer motor.

Phone around to the appliance parts stores in your area and you should find that you can buy a rebuilt timer for your dryer.

A rebuilt timer will typically cost about half what a new timer costs. Talk to the people at your local appliance parts stores. They will know if there is anyone rebuilding timers locally. If not, they'll typically know where you can send your timer to be rebuilt, or order a rebuilt timer from.

Or, you can Google "rebuilt timers" and find web sites that rebuild appliance timers like this one:

This web page lists three companies that rebuild appliance timers:

In Canada, there is also Turner's Timers at:
Turner's Timer Repair
1220 Ellesmere Road, Scarborough, ON M1P 2X5
Telephone : 416-291-2102

In Winnipeg, there is also Acadian Controls:
Acadian Controls

Winnipeg , Manitoba Canada R3J 3A9
Phone:(204) 832-0615


It's not hard to replace a timer. You just have to accurately document what wire went to what tab on the old timer before you transfer the wires to the rebuilt or new timer.
