Question about Dryers
Unplugged for 24 hours and all worked correctly
After 1st load, returned to same problem
Cycle sector stuck in perm press - end of cycle alarm sounds constantly
SOURCE: Whirlpool Front Load Duet Dryer
Elsewhere on this forum a fix was given that is rather easy. Someone in your home has activated the child safety switch. On the lower right hand side of the control panel, hold the bottom button in for 3 seconds until the light goes out.(safety control lock switch)

On auto dry cycles, the cycle is controlled by moisture sensing bars located on either the rear or front bulkhead, ( visible inside dryer ) if the moisture sensor bars are shorted together (normally by wet clothing) the dryer will continue to run. If the dryer continues to run when the clothes are plenty dry, check and see if there is anything stuck between the sensor bars, (sometimes a metal sequin will cause this) or see if they are damaged. If not, you may have a problem with a timer contact, if the timer advances and stops moving at the same spot each time, I would suspect the timer. If this is an EvenHeat dryer, examine the control board located to the right of the timer in the control panel, for any burned components. Hope this helps.

huuum At your service!
Sometimes this can happen when the vent line is clogged.
1. Check if the lint filter is full and needs to be cleaned.
Try this first.If the vent line is kinked or blocked
2. Then check if the outside screen covering the exhaust vent if this is even half blocked
with lint there will be no heat! This screen is to keep small animals out!
Try checking this and if it is clogged or the spring loaded door is stuck closed.
Try to clean the lint out of the corners of the flap door,
and or remove the screen permanently!
NO ANIMALS LIKE TO GET BURNT,IT'S HOT IN THAT TUBE!
Take the vent line off the rear of the dryer and try if it works. If it does you know it's the vent line and not the dryer that's the problem the dryer.
You will be fine
Bless You huuum

First of all if you want heat it's probably a burnt up thermal fuse due to lack of air to the dryer. But if the timer is getting stuck you'll just have to replace the timer. Theres no way of fixing the timer just replace it and then replace the thermal fuse (it's located on the back of the dryer) and you should be up and running also have the ducting cleaned out.
Please remember to unplug the dryer before working on it.
Hope this helps
