Maytag lsg7806aa not stoppinghi, dryer doesn't stop. changed out timing module ($100). same problem. machine heat-cycles and tumbles correctly. removed motor from timer , and jumpered with 120v. motor works. so it appears that timer module is not getting power to energize timer motor. is it the circuit board? there is a thermostat on the exhaust with 4 leads. they alternate with 120v and send power to ignitor when there is a call for heat. there is another module next to this thermostat (on the exhaust), which has two leads and on the other side is a strip about 1-1/2"long x 1/8". most likely some type of sensor (humidity maybe?). opened up vents and no clog found thanks for your help coz

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.

can you find an electrical diagram in the control panel. you can trace which part controls the timer motor. it could be an interlock in the motor that has no contacts or anything. trace the diagram.

My maytag bravo dryer turns on and tumbles but doesn't heat


There may still be a warranty left on it. the thermistor or the heating element may be at fault.

Dryer will not stop running


Your machine may have a feature called wrinkle guard or wrinkle shield, which basically keeps tumbling the clothes without heat to prevent wrinkles from setting in. Turn that feature off and see if that does the trick.

MDG4000BWW gas neptune dryer The timed dry/air fluff doesn't work until it gets to damp dry or wrinkle release. Works on the other cycles. Have removed lint screen & 4" hose cleaned and vacuumed.


on a timed dry cycle u are selecting the time it will dry
only after the time has run out will it tumble with no heat
on other setting the machine is stopping the heat and putting the machine into a cool down or air fluff mode
sounds like it isworking normally

Stops heatinng


Hi, first thing to check is the venting. If the vent is plugged, it will cause the heat to short cycle.
If later in the cycle, the ignitor glows but will not ignite the gas, you will need to change the coils on top the gas valve. This is a common problem.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic
