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)

SOURCE: dryer runs but wont auto shut off

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.

SOURCE: Gas Dryer - takes to long to dry

Friend,
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

SOURCE: Dryer won't shut off at end of cycle

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
Jason

How do I turn on bell on my dryer


From the Whirlpool user manual:
(OPTIONAL) Your dryer may have an End Of Cycle Signal. The
signal is helpful when drying items that should be removed
from the dryer as soon as it stops.
?
On some models, the End of Cycle Signal is fixed.
?
On other models, the End of Cycle signal is part of the
Start button and is selectable. Turn the PUSH TO START
button to ON or OFF. The signal will sound only if the
selector is set to On.

My AEG T37400 lavatherm standanlone tumble dryer works for a turns of the drum then stops.


Alarm conditions during operation of the dryer

The LEDs begin to flash if one of the following malfunctions occurs:
  • NTC open (the LEDs flash in sequence from right to left)
  • NTC short-circuited (the LEDs flash in sequence from right to left)
  • If the START button is pressed for more than 20 seconds while a cycle is in operation all the LEDs flash.
25679338-hf2jxxovvq5cn05mugly0fcq-5-5.jpg If the microprocessor identifies one of the conditions listed above, operation of the dryer is interrupted; the LEDs continue to flash in order to warn the user of the malfunction.
If the error is eliminated, the dryer returns to normal operation when the programme selector knob is turned to RESET and the drying cycle is re-selected.

Whirlpool gas range self-clean cycle produces FSE1 on display and door doesn't lock, audible alarm sounds


I found this on an appliance forum. It sounds the same as your problem. They say the code is F5 E1. Apparently the door lock latch is stuck.

My whirlpool duet steam dryer appears to be stuck on the steam cycle. I put in a load of clothes that were barely wet and now they are soaking wet. The heating element is working but they are still...


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.It can be a stuck relay to the water valve or a water valve that is not closing all the way. Put a towel across the bottom of the drum a few hours and see if it gets wet when the unit is not in use if so the valve is stuck open and needs to be replaced.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Dryer will not start cycle


Hi-- none of the solutions I've read here are working. Same problem, dryer not starting, it says "Sensing..." and then "Wet" and does nothing. It worked fine on the last load, except I noticed it read 11 minutes for a very, very long time (I think it got stuck). New load? "Sensing..." etc.

Wash machine sometimes gets stuck on rinse cycle & dryer not dry


Sounds like the drain hose for the washer is too far down in the stand pipe at the wall causing a siphon effect, try raising drain hose a little. The dryer sounds like the vent line from back of dryer too wall is pinched causing an air flow obstruction. Hope this helps.
