Is it heating? If so sounds as if it may be getting to hot and shutting off. Check your thermostats.

My roper dryer works fine, it heats and the timer advances, it just wont shut off at the the end of a timed dry or auto dry. What do you think?


A timed drying cycle uses the timer alone to stop the drying cycle. Once it times out like an egg timer a set of contacts open up shutting off the dryer. Or a set of contacts closes to activate a relay which in turn shuts off the power.
Auto dry usually uses a moisture sensor which would do the same thing as the timer. Once it doesnt sense moisture in the load for a predetermined time it in turn triggers a relay which shuts the power off. Some auto dry cycles just use the timer alone and guess-timate the drying time by the selection.
If yours does not use a moisture sensor then most likely it is your timer/cycle switch. There may or may not be a relay involved.
Most dryers have a basic wiring diagram on the inside somewhere on one of the panels which will help.
Since yours is acting up on both cycles Im guessing you have a bad relay or connection to that relay somewhere IF it uses a moisture sensor.

The beep that signals load is done sounds prematurely for about a minute ,the dryer continues until load is dry then shuts off


On this dryer each of the seven automatic cycles listed on your machine perform different functions based on fabrics, load size or variables. In essence the first four settings (Heavy Duty to Delicate) relate to your desired drying temperatures of high, medium, low or extra-low respectively. The moisture level of the load is determined by the dryer's sensor system and the machine will set the drying time to an optimal level.

Whirlpool added a WRINKLE FREE feature or what one might describe as an extended intermittent tumbling time. This added cycle helps reduce wrinkling when you may not be able to unload the dryer immediately after the end of the cycle when the buzzer goes off. Starting this setting is a simple one button operation at the control panel. TheWrinkle Shield™ Plus Feature is preset to on during the permanent press cycle.

Amana dryer not advancing on auto


Make sure the vent from the dryer to the outside is clean.
Reduced air flow can cause your symptom.

You can remove the vent hose from the dryer and operate the dryer in the automatic cycle.'
If the timer advances you know the vent needs cleaning.
Clean the lint filter housing also.
A flashlight helps to see all the way down the housing.

Whirlpool LER4634EQO Runs for about 2 minuts and shuts off.


It is possible your Cycling Themostat is not working properly. It determines at what temperature to turn heat on and off to maintain a consistent dryer temp. The High Limit Thermostat would turn off the heat but your dryer would still run. That leaves the Thermal Cut Off which is turning off your dryer. It might be faulty and turning off at too low a temp, or it might be doing it's job. In that case something else is wrong. If you can check the exhaust air temperature at the dryer, it should be under 175 degrees. If you are absolutely sure the vent is clear, then replace the Dryer Cycling Thermostat.

Frigidaire Gallery Dryer Needs Two Cycles to Dry Clothes


A dryer needs to exhaust properly in order to dry no matter where it's situated. Insure that the venting is not crushed at the back and that it has a good strong air flow outside

Hotpoint dryer takes 3-4 70 minute cycles per load to dry, no matter what size load


Check your rear exhaust vent for blockage.
Your dryer has 2 heating elements.
If it gets warm at all at least one element is broken.
The operating thermostat could also be bad.
Burned/broken wire at heater terminal.
Unplug the dryer.
Remove the front panel, then the belt and drum and inspect the heater and thermostats.

It takes several auto cycles on regular heat to dry a load of laundry when I think it should only take one. What's wrong?


first, check your exhaust, you have to make sure there is no buildup at all inside it. this is the most common problem to cause this. if lint gets backed up, there is a sensor that shuts down the heating element after only a few seconds. hope this helps
