Question about KitchenAid KEYS850LQ Electric Dryer
KitchenAid Superbra, Super Capacity Plus, 120/240V, 28A, 60Hz
Dryer heats and tumbles fine, but timer has stopped working, so dryer will tumble indefinitely; timer stays on setting, does not count down.
Do I need to get a new timer assym? I've hear they're $75-100. Or are there other possibilities for causing an improper timer?
Does anyone know of a used-parts directory where I might find a cheap replacement part?
Thanks for looking and for any advice!
Timers cannot be repaired. The mechanism is a spring - once it weakens, or fails - a new timer is required.
CLICK HERE for your part.
It is $83.72 USD.
Here is a Buy-it-Now eBay auction for $34.99USD & Free shipping!!
Your part number for the timer is 3976570a
A used part would have to come from an appliance store that salvaged from an abandoned washer.... and it may fail shortly anyway.
The new timer will have a warranty, and give you 10 more years of service.
Well worth it.
