The dial on my dryer is not working. The timer doesn't count down. If I put the dial to dry for 60 minutes it stays there till I manually turn it off.

Is this an eay fix or do I need a new machine?

** Is this an eay fix or do I need a new machine? **

It is unlikely to be such a drastic failure that you'd need to replace the dryer but as to whether it is an easy fix will depend on the actual cause.

Such a symptom could be caused by a just defective timer in which case replacing the timer may be needed. Basically, if power is getting to the timer's motor but it is not advancing, the timer is likely defective and needs to be replaced.

If the timer's motor is NOT getting power, other things will need to be checked. What things could cause that would depend on the brand of the appliance and its exact model number.

You can find tips for locating the model number tag on your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my site linked below.
