Hi, My dryer stopped heating up about a month ago. My husband took it apart, tested the a part and replaced it. Since that time, the dryer keeps stopping (the timer jumps), only runs for about 10 mins at a time AND the part that worries me the most is that I haven't had to empty the lint trap which I usually do after every load?

Sounds like the vent tubing is not hooked up as it should be and that can cause a lot of lint buildup inside of the dryer parts. take it apart again and clean out all of the lint because this is a fire hazard. make sure that the vent is connected to the lint trap and try working it again. it sounds like maybe the buildup of lint is making the drying hard to do.

SOURCE: I clean my lint trap

Hi and welcome to fixya,

This problem can be caused by poor air circulation inside. In order to efficiently remove lint from clothes, load the dryer 1/2 of its drum capacity. It also helps putting fabric conditioner sheets to prevent clothes from charging static electricity which can attract lint..

Hope this helps,

The dryer keeps stopping (the timer skips from 50 mins to 10 mins in secs) AND what worries me the most is, I haven't needed to empty the lint trap.


Well, well.
Am I to understand the timer dial is going really fast as you watch it?
I didn't know that was possible, but maybe the wiring has been compromised (shorted out) somehow. If so, you would need to take it all back apart and look for a wire that is pinched or incorrectly hooked up. Some Whirlpool dryers have numbers on the back of the timer that are supposed to match numbers that are actually printed on the wires themselves.
As far as the lint trap, perhaps one of the "pipes" inside the dryer is unhooked or loose causing the hot air to miss the screen.
Be blessed.

clean the stainless steel sensor pads located just inside the dryer door with isopropyl alcohol,these sensors register moisture in the garments and adjust drying times accordingly,when you use dryer fabric softener sheets it coats these sensors and throws the system off,make sure to shut off power to unit as this alcohol is very flammable,then leave door open to air out before re-powering up unit

you could have bad gas coils.if the timer doesn't advance in auto dry most likely you're having heat problems,when the dryer heats and then the heat shuts off then the timer will advance,when the heat comes back on the timer stops,it does this until the clothes are dry.gas coils when starting to fail will work normally until they get hot and then no heat until the coils cool down then they will work again,on time dry the timer just keeps counting down until the time runs out no matter what's happening to the dryer.i've seen the coils fail after the first 10 minutes and other times for 20 to 30 minutes but usually if the load is big and in time dry the clothes will feel warm and you'll need to dry them a second time to get them fully dry,also while you're in ther you should clean out the dryer at least once a year,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vacuum out the cabinet where the motor is and blow out the vent line,if it's a long run i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,remove it from the back of the dryer,stick the leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out,i've blown out birds nest out of some lines, your clothes will dry on time,you won't go through so many parts and you won't have to worry about a dryer fire,the gas coils are on top of the gas valve,remove the two phillips screws,lift off the cover and change out the coils.next time you use the dryer keep an eye on it,after it runs for 20 minutws start checking it,you'll hear a click,then another click and the flame will lite,look into the gas tube and if the flame isn't liting then you have bad gas coils.

My Kenmore drier won't stop now! Perhaps timer isn't working?


Hi there. this is a timer issue. it counts down but, the actual shut off dial embedded in the timer mechanism is damaged for some reason. replacing the timer assembly will correct this issue. there are two parts to a timer. One, it times and last, it initiates the shutoff. the second action is not working properly. to be sure, check the relay before you purchase the new timer.


I have also provided you with a complete manual set that you can access and print out if you would like.
