Hello all, Iím in need for a timer I believe for my ge dryer. The timer works sometimes and sometimes it donít. Iíve read online and it said to put the timer knob on a timed setting and if it doesnít advance the timer is bad. Well mine stays in the same spot so I believe it is the timer going bad. However Iím not sure of the part number for the timer of my dryer, if anyone could help or even has one that would work for me and wants to sale please let me know. Here is a picture of the model number. I appreciate any advice. Thanks Doug

Timer for GE Dryer

Hi Doug, it should be Pt# WE4X525, it might be SO or NLA, but you should be able to find a used or rebuilt one for this dryer.


To check the timer for sure try disconnecting the timer motor leads and connect them to 120 volts and see if it advances then, it is possible the little electronic control board supplies power to the timer motor even on the timed cycles and could be the problem.

GE part number is WE4X611. It is a No Longer Available part so youíll have to find a good used one or a New Old Stock. Sounds like the timer motor may be the culprit.
