SOURCE: Neptune Dryer Time keeps going forever

your problem is most likely an issue with the start button. if it is stuck, the dryer will keep running even though it has passed the off position. your start switch probably needs replaced. Joe

SOURCE: Hi, My dryer suddenly stopped drying. No power to

Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting...

Duet dryer is making a humming noise when cycle starts a d during


whenever i hear a humming sound in a dryer it's usually the motor or something caught in the blower wheel stopping the motor from spinning.open the door and see if you can spin the drum.if it spins by hand try this,open the door,push in the door switch with one hand,have someone push the start button while you hold in the door switch and spin the drum by hand helping it move,if it runs you have a bad motor,if it doesn't remove the bottom panel and see if the belt is broke and stuck in the motor but like i say usually it has something to do with the motor not spinning.hope this helps

Why does dryer spin with door open?


Hi Mandy,

The fact that the light bulb is out *and* the drum continues to spin when the door is opened - all point to a faulty door switch.

This switch tells the machine the "status" of the door position. When the door is open, it turns on the light *and* stops / prevents the drum from starting. When closed, the light is shut off *and* the drum is permitted to spin. You should have the switch serviced as if a wire came loose it adds a potential shock hazard - in addition to the safety issue of placing hands into a spinning drum.

The dryer is plugged in and the circuts seem to work however the dryer is making a humming noise but it will not turn on fully.


what do you mean it won't fully turn on?do you mean the motor won't run because usually when it humms you either have a bad motor or something is jammed and stopped the motor from spinning.try this,open the door,with one hand hold the door switch in and with the other hand spin the drum,have someone else push the start button while you do this,if it starts the motor is bad,if you can't spin the drum something could be stuck in the blower wheel or the belt broke and could of jammed up the motor but it sounds like you have a bad motor.let me know what you find and next time send the brand name and model number.

Dryer stooped working suddenly.


Replace the fan belt that turns the dryer drum. Use only the genuine replacement spare part for your dryer.

Doesn't spin freely, works for about half a cycle and stops spinning. won't turn back on or spin good until it cools for a few hours. then you might get another half cycle or so out of it.


open the dryer door and maunually spin the drum around. if it spins relatively easily, then it sounds like the drive motor is going bad. the windings open up and it stops. sounds like you need a new motor. it may be cheaper in the long run to get a new dryer
