Good morning,
We recently purchased a used Maytag Bravos set, the washer is apparently just garbage (broken transmission, leaked oil everywhere). Now the dryer dries great, but it ran the entire night. And when i looked, the knob for the time hadn't moved at all. Is this a small fix or shoudl we just chalk this up to a total loss?

Please update your other thread before starting a new thread:
Thanks!

Was the dryer on AUTO DRY or TIMED DRY when this happened?

If your getting 115 to 120 volts to the timer motor and its not advancing, then your timer is bad.

Here's the timer for your model you can order:
WPW10642928 Timer

Jake, do you think this is something easy I could repair myself? Or do I need to hire someone. I’m pretty handy... to an extent.

Yes, if you've fixed other things around your house, then you can do this.

Remove power to the dryer.
Remove the six(6) screws attaching the back panel cover to the console.
Remove the timer knob by pulling it off, then remove the two bracket screws(inside the console) that secure the timer to the console assembly.
Slide the timer out the back of the console, mark or label the wires as you disconnect them from the timer terminals.
Reverse the procedure, restore power to the machine and test the machine.
