Question about Dryers

Autodry cycle never stops

I have a Whirlpool LGR4634JQ2 gas dryer. When my dryer is set on the Autodry cycle, it never stops even though the clothes are dry. It will stop if set on the timed dry cycle. We have changed out the timer, but it has not fixed the problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated.... Thanks! I have a Whirlpool dryer LG7681XSN1. The dryer runs continuously when in Auto Dry. The timed modes work fine.

    Checked the thermostat. The large wires control the gas burner and are working. The burner is cycling. The small wires drive the thermostat heater. The voltage across the heater is controlled by the temperature dial on the front panel. This works also. Am I looking at the right part?

    I checked the control module. It is part number 3407023 Rev C. It has a Motorola transistor on it and it shows high resistance across all junctions. I can't identify the transistor. The labeling is "M61 291 743" The "M" is the M symbol used by Motorola. Any help identifying the transistor would be appreciated.

I have a gas dryer that when cycle begins it heats but after a while it stops heating and it takes too long for clothes to dry...Why is this happening?


I would check the the vent hose first. It might be clogged with lint or stopped up some other way or even crimped where the air won't flow. Turn on the dryer and go outside and be sure there is a good flow of air coming out of the vent. If there's not much air flow dis connect the hose and clean it out

Shuts off during autodry cycle. stays on during timed cycle but clothes are wrinkled ans too hot at end of cycle.


if it works on auto but not on time you have a bad timer,it's not counting down,it's better to use auto anyway,when the clothes dry the dryer shuts off on it's own,this way your not using extra electricity,if your clothes dry in 30 minutes and it's on 60 minutes it will still run after the clothes are dry on auto it doesn't.if you open the door and look around the opening you'll see a tag with the model number,your missing a couple of letters on the model number.

Clothes not getting dried


Are you sure that the duct is clean and free flowing? If the duct is partially blocked the dryer's efficiency drops dramatically. I would double check the duct at both ends and clean out as required - air flow is very important - with the dryer on - go check the air coming out of he duct outside - if it is very forceful - then the problem is elsewhere - however if only a little bit of sir is coming out - your all plugged up!.

Machine drys fine on timed cycles but shuts off before clothes are dry on automatic cycle.


First try cleaning the moisture sensors with rubbing alcohol, these are two silver colored strips located inside the drier just below the lint cleanout

Whirlpool gas dryer is not hot .burner ignights but it is not hot enough


If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.

Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:

  • The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.

  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's 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 thermostat 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 the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

if this helps please give me a fix ya vote
