Timer stuck on Maytag dryer

The timer on the dryer (Bravos MCT) Maytag does not move. The clothes dry, but the timer stays on the same amount of minutes throughout the drying cycle. Thanks for your help.

It looks like a spring-driven, mechanical timer. If that’s the case, you’ll probably just need to get a new timer. If you’re pretty handy, it is not difficult to replace. An appliance parts store can get you a timer, but Ebay might have one, and probably much less expensive. Just be sure it is exactly the same, made for your exact dryer model if you go that route. I have to say this. A non-functioning timer could lead to overheating your clothes, therefore be a fire hazard. If you are not sure how to replace the timer, the safer option would be to call a professional appliance repair technician. Get exact cost in advance and compare that to the value of your dryer with its age considered. Then decide if it is worth the money or if you need to replace the dryer . As an example of parts cost. I repaired my Maytag range with a part from Ebay that cost me $8. The appliance parts store wanted close to $80 for the same part. I wish you luck. Always disconnect electricity before removing covers of appliances. Steve, Dallas, Texas

Note: unplug dryer first. Shock hazard exists.

If the the dryer runs continuously and doesn't have automatic moisture sensing. Then the timer may be bad. Is it moving? Is a clicking noise coming from it ? If no most likely it's the timer. If it has moisture sensing then Google your model for location of it and clean the metal contact with wool lightly and vacuum lint holes on inside of drum.

Moisture sensor should be on inside backside of lint filter somewhere.
