My roper dryer works fine, it heats and the timer advances, it just wont shut off at the the end of a timed dry or auto dry. What do you think?


A timed drying cycle uses the timer alone to stop the drying cycle. Once it times out like an egg timer a set of contacts open up shutting off the dryer. Or a set of contacts closes to activate a relay which in turn shuts off the power.
Auto dry usually uses a moisture sensor which would do the same thing as the timer. Once it doesnt sense moisture in the load for a predetermined time it in turn triggers a relay which shuts the power off. Some auto dry cycles just use the timer alone and guess-timate the drying time by the selection.
If yours does not use a moisture sensor then most likely it is your timer/cycle switch. There may or may not be a relay involved.
Most dryers have a basic wiring diagram on the inside somewhere on one of the panels which will help.
Since yours is acting up on both cycles Im guessing you have a bad relay or connection to that relay somewhere IF it uses a moisture sensor.

GE DDE7500 Timer does not advance on Auto Dry setting. Timed Dry works OK. Duct not clogged. Has 2 sensors in drum. Sensors are clean.


Hello,
The problem is going to be resister based on everything you described(thanks for telling us what you have done to determine the problem) this resister has no bearing on the timed dry,but is what allows the timer to advance on the auto dry cycle.
The part number for that resister is WE4X499 it could be purcahsed at your local appliance parts store or online at;

The drum on my dryer will turn when I set the timer to any setting, but the timer does not work, nor does it heat up. Any suggestions?


See if the timer advances in the timed dry or the auto dry cycles. If the timer advances in timed dry but not in auto dry, then you could have a wire connection failure in the orange wire from the heating element to the timer.

If the timer will not advance in either type of cycle, then I recommend checking the timer part number that you are using.

The timer seems to not work only on the auto sensing (left) side. It does not move forward. On the timed dry, its fine. I'm thinking a piece in the timer assy is bad. Is there anything else that can go...


The auto dry sensor in the dryer could be bad or the wire to the auto dry sensor may have come loose. If these parts are OK and you are getting heat in auto dry then yes,it would be the timer.

Timer does not move in Auto/delecate


Im guessing there is another thermostat in the circuit to actuate the timer motor circuit. If you can find the timer motor wires check for voltage in the run (cycles yuor having trouble with) modes. Automaticadvance timmer mode is usually an open set of contacts and close when the element is heating too correct temperature allowing power to continue to the timmer motor. In the delicate cycle often it is the same thermostat on a differant set of contacts (but they could be on the same thermostat this type of thermostat has 3 termjinals usually 2 on 1 side and 1 on the other). that energize the timer motor.

The other thing that could be the problem is the timmer itself. There has to be a set of contacts inside the timmer that energize the timer motor in both cycles. these are or can work on some cycles but not others due to worn out parts in the timer. Check for voltages her that corrospond with your timer motor.

Hope this helps Please rate me accordingly and GOOD LUCK

My Amana Model NDG5800AWW dryer has ceased to dry clothes dependably. The Only setting that still sort of works is HIGH timed drying, and this heats up to what used to be the "delicate" setting....


if you are using the auto dry setting and the dryer is still running after 5 hours you either have a timer issue or a thermostat problem.

The timer is driven by a motor, if the timer motor is bad the timer wont time out.

in the auto dry cycle the thermostat has to cycle off and on which then sends power to the timer again advancing the timer.

set the timer in a timed dry cycle for say ten minutes, if the timer advances and turns off then you know the timer works. if it doesnt advance you have a timer motor issue,

if the problem is the auto cycle, you could replace the thermostat, about $20 american. however a clock timer would be cheaper.

Based on how old is your machine and do you want to stick a timer in it after already paying the service man is up to you.

A basic bath towel load should be dry in about 50 minutes, this varies on how good your seals are and how long a vent you are running, if the dryer vent was plugged you already have shortened the life of your heating element.

Hotpoint ultima 1200 washer/dryer


Have suffered the same problem. Suggest you remove back (after turning off electrical supply) and look at the water outlet pipe - you may have a sock or two in this - remember to reattach outlet and secure in position.
