Whirlpool Dryer Heating in Cool Down and Air Fluff

Whirlpool Dryer model number LER6620PQ0

Unplugged dryer, ohm tested heating element to heater housing to check for grounded element, heating element ohm tested good, and not to the heater housing ground either.

Found stuck contact in timer causing this problem, Installed new timer, worked great!

Here’s the OEM timer I replaced for this model:
WP8299778 Timer

Kenmore 106.56876600 Not cycling On by-itself

2006 Kenmore 106.56876600 Not cycling On by-itself, unless you hit the middle divider.

The contact in the temperature control thermostat is sticking, that’s why when the customer hits the middle divider the compressor and fans start running like normal.

The manufacturer has replaced part number WP2315562 with part number W11088945.

Here’s the temperature control thermostat for this model:
