Timer is humming but drying not turning on

Dryer is 1 years old. left dryer running at night and in the morning found the timer had advanced past the first off mark and went through another cycle. I tried turning on the dryer but all i hear is ticking at the timer but dryer wont run. we replaced the thermal fuse and it ran but got too hot and shut down. we then replaced the thermal fuse again and also the hight limit thermostat. dryer ran but again timer advanced past the 1st off mark and continued onto 2nd cylce. Now all i hear is ticking at the timer and dryer wont run at all..Any advice on what to replace next?

Countdown timer not working


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the timer on your Electrolux dryer, model#EIMED55IIW, is not advancing to show you how much time is left on the dry cycle. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and restart your dryer. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your dryer status has changed successfully.

-Best Regards-
WP

Element heats, dryer tumbles, no heat in drum, never shuts off


Hi, If the dryer heats but will not advance in either time or auto cycles, you need to change the timer.
You can test to see if the timer is getting voltage. Remove the top rear panel and locate the two wires going to the timer motor. There should be 120V when the dryer is running in time dry.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Dryer just sits and hums


if you push the start and it just humms it is a bad dryer motor to weak to kick on,to confirm this have sombody hold the dryer door button in and turn the drum when you push the start button,if it jump starts you know it's a bad motor-mike

Dries clothes but runs too long & clothes VERY hot


Fixable and possibly a warranty claim. The timer is bad. You will need to get behind the control panel and remove the timer and replace the timer. First I would call whoever it is that yall bought the dryer through and see how long your warranty is. Most of the warranties are only 1 year. But if you bought a extended warranty then you are covered. The part can be found at repairclinic.com

Dryer is not heating and will not stop running


if you were running it on timed cycle and it was still running with no heat then you have a bad timer and if you were running it on auto cycle and it was still running and its electric dryer then you have a bad element ,,, if its gas you may have a bad ignitor / larry

Kenmore dryer


Jeff, almost sounds like a timer issue, but I was fooled on this once. Under the consol is a inline resistor from the main plug. If this resistor is bad, dryer keeps running in timed dry. Part number for the resistor is 3401076. Look it up on the web so you know what it looks like. Just splices in.. Catriver..post back.

Maytag dryer PYE3300AYW Continuously runs


jefo, it sounds to me like your timer is not advancing. Does it move at all or stay in place? In what you are saying it will stop when you turn it to off, I would think it could be the timer that is the problem. Part # 53-1810.
