    Dryer will not start. Bought it from a co-worker who said it was running when put in starage two months ago. Start button clicks but you can only hear the timer if you hold the switch in the depressed position.

I have a Whirlpool AccuDry Dry (Model LGQ8858JQ2). It will start fine, but will stop shortly into the dry cycle and beep three times. The drum turns and I checked the belt. The timer continues..but at


I think that it's a door switch error.
Open the door and locate the door switch. Exercise the switch with your finger about twenty times then try the dryer again. You may have to replace the door switch.
Check youtube for help videos on replacing the door switch.

700 dryer wont shut off automatically


If it will not turn off on the Timed Dry cycle the failure is in the timer. The timer is the component behind the large knob on the console. If you supply me with the full model number from the front panel inside the door, I can get you a part number and approximate price of the part.

I have a whirlpool dryer, model number lgt6634dq0. The timmer does not stop after the drying cycle has ended. My guest it might be the timer. After the dryer has finished it's cycle I can hear the timer...


HI. The timer will be the culprit here. The timer motor is damaged, and the cogs seem to be worn, as well. I recommend replacing this failed timer mechanism. Once replaced, the unit will operate correctly.

Whirlpool 6.5 cu ft 5 cycle is not timing and drying clothes qui


First I would check to make sure your vent is not clogged or kinked. As far as the timer, the only fix would be to replace it. Unless of course you have the feature that detects the dryness and that would put you back at the venting problem. Good luck.

Dryer not heating or turning off


It can be multiple problems. First are you using it on sensor dry or timed dry? If it is timed try, it's possible your timer is not advancing. If you are using sensor dry it could be your sensor.

To test the timer, check for continuity across the timer. If it is open, replace the timer.

To test sensor, run the dryer on sensor with nothing in it, if the timer advances quickly, the sensor is not the issue. If it does not advnace, it could be the sensor.

The no heat issue; check to make sure you don't have a blockage in the venting or in the dryer. If there is no blockage, check your element. To check if the element is not heating up, check for continuity through the sensor.

Hope that helps.
