Timer problems? My wife tell me on cycles the timer dwindles down to 0 in 1/2 to 1 /4 of the time. we have had this problem since we purchase them, but it seems to be intermittent. I thought it might be some kind of programming problem? any help would be appreciated

LG washer timer displays are only estimates.  The computer is looking at several sensors to determine how quickly the clothes are getting cleaned and how hot the water is.  If the computer determines that things are moving quickly, the timer is reset to complete the wash cycles quicker thus saving energy.

Hotpoint nvl333gyoww gas dryer's timer stopped working and ran for an extended length of time (about a day). After looking over the dryer, i noticed that during the no heat cycle the timer would work. So...


the timer : if you use time dry the timer should always move and complete the cycle. if you use auto dry the timer uses a sensor to tell the timer to move. If your not getting any heat your sensor might not tell the timer to move.

So lets start with the no heat problem. First make sure your Vent is clear or just disconnect the vent and put a pair of womans stocking over the end to keep the dust down, This will ensure you do not have a blocked vent. ((( If you have a blocked vent on a gas dryer the safty sensor will shut off the gas valve and you will only get a little bit of heat))) Now try the dryer for small load, ((( if this solved your problem then you have a cloged vent )))

If this did not solve your problem then the coils on your gas valve in the dryer are probably bad.

Dishwasher does not complete cycle


The problem is the timer/control. I checked for a recall but your model wasn't on the list. Many of these had a recall for the control, they were a fire hazard. Heres a link to help install the timer/control http://appliancehelponline.com/dishwashercontrol.html. When you remove the front panel there will be to plastic hinge covers be sure to reinstall these they help keep it quiet. They just slip over the hinge. The rest of the removal will be the same.

Dryer not turning off when clothes are dry (model LDE 400ACL)


Normally if you have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry, it will do it with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a "pre-set" temperature.
When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. If there is a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough. The timer advances until the interior cools, then the termostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But... if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix this problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork and make sure the vent is not compressed or kinked. If that doesn't work, then your thermostat, moisture sensor or timer could be the culprit.

My Kenmore drier won't stop now! Perhaps timer isn't working?


Hi there. this is a timer issue. it counts down but, the actual shut off dial embedded in the timer mechanism is damaged for some reason. replacing the timer assembly will correct this issue. there are two parts to a timer. One, it times and last, it initiates the shutoff. the second action is not working properly. to be sure, check the relay before you purchase the new timer.


I have also provided you with a complete manual set that you can access and print out if you would like.

Runs forever! even on Normal wash...help !!


Check to make sure you heating element has not failed. Dishwashers of today heat the water periodically through out the cycle and if the element has failed. The heating delay light is the indicator that tells you that it is trying to heat the water.

Water goes in and pumps out basically only hums no timer movement


I would take apart the pump and I'll bet you there is a booby pin or something jamming it, I had the same problem and fixed it by myself.

Timer Does not Move


FIRST CHECK YOUR VENT IS CLEANED OUT THEN SEE IF TIMER MOVES WHEN PUT TO A TIMED CYCLE. IF SO MEANS VENT CLOGGED UP. IF STILL NOT MOVING MEANS TIMER CONTROL BAD. COST ABOUT 80-100 FOR PART. YOU COULD DO YOURSELF IF SOMEWHAT HANDI.

COULD BE ORDERED FROM SEARS PARTS DIRECT BY YOU.

OTHER WISE CALL SERVICER AND MAY COST 200.00 TO REPAIR. HOPE THIS HELPS

Overload


Dont worry by the time you read this it will probably already start working again. There is a Auto Reset Thermal Overload Switch on the motor that shuts it down when its pulling too much amperage. Its not good for them but they are usually fine. Just advise your wife its hard on your particiular design washer to be overloaded.
