yes ... you're correct ..

When I enter 110.84722401 into RepairClinic,

it doesn't know that model number, but it shows parts for other close models (but no cigar)  :ooo:
(previous post edited)

ALSO, did you replace the Timer Motor ?
(or complete assembly)

OR just the Switch Assembly ?

The "ENTIRE" (as one complete) assembly timer was replaced with a brand new one. Sears part # 3406712. The one that came with the dryer has the exaxt same parts numbers on it. THE PROBLEM IS NOT THE TIMER!! If it was I would not be here. I have tested both timers with a meter and they both have the same readings. The reason why I'm here looking for help is because of the complex issue of this.

Just be patient, let me do some checking today. The only time I have ever seen a timer run backwards is when you try to change just the timer motor and you use the incorrect one. I understand this isn't the case here. I will post back later tonight.

testing with a meter would be inconclusive ..
that would only test to see if they work at all..

Order a Timer from RepairClinic

if it doesn't work, it can be returned (less shipping)

You stated that the dryer is 2.5 years old. Did you buy it used or new out of the box????  If new out of the box, did the timer always operate backwards???.........The original design had a timer body with a  timer motor  that could be purchased separately...........    Let appl tech. work his magic on this little conundrum........

I actually lost a bet with another tech many years ago when he claimed the timer in a KitchenAid dryer developed an issue where the timer ran backwards - I thought it not to be possible, but in that case he was correct and replacement of the timer did solve that

Did this dryer ever work correctly ?

I agree with Master Reg. that the problem is with the timer, but something still isnt right. Did you buy this dryer new? Did it ever work right?

The Dryer was purchased brand new out of the box, sealed! It always worked properly including the timer! I have Replaced the timer for a 3rd time,(with a brand new one!) just to give you guys benefit of the doubt. It still is NOT the Timer, all 3 timers do the same thing!! I have tested all 3 timers and they all test the same. Once I figure out what this is, I will post it here.

sorry to keep hammering on this  but maybe you don't realize how many times i have been told this (including by electricians) and it turns out it was not fine.

as far as the replacement timer, are the two wires feeding the timer motor plugged into terminals or permanently fixed to the connection points? if you can remove them, try reversing their positions, just for kicks.

also, according to the wiring diagram this is a 120vac dryer, right?

You will have to for give some of these questions that we ask, :),  but we heed to know things.  In your first post you changed the old timer with a new timer.......did the machine get moved ??,  power surge,?? or out of the blue it just started to run backwards??   Look at the old timer what numbers are on the side of the motor  vs. the numbers on the side of the  new motor,  are the close??
