Electric dryer model no. 110.62702101 timer will not advance in auto cycle but heater comes on. Timer does advance in timed cycle.

Vent has been disconnected and dryer does heat properly in timed mode. I cannot find a resistor on this model. Could the resistor be inside the timer?

SOURCE: Dryer Timer Won't Advance in Auto Mode

Inside the dryer there should be two small metal strips (about 6-7 inches long and about 1/4 inch wide). These are the pieces that detect how much moisture is in the clothing. If possible, unscrew the plastic piece that they mount to, and see if the wires are still attached.

Bear in mind that "auto dry" doesn't usually work well unless you have a well filled dryer (one or two items may not come in contact with the sensors enough to tell the machine to continue heating— since it isn't coming in contact with wet clothing, it thinks the load is "dry".

The problem could also come from the circuitry in the control panel, but I would check these first. The fact that the machine works fine in regular timed cycle indicates that the upper limit and multi temp thermostats are working correctly.

As always, unplug the unit before unscrewing anything.

SOURCE: dryer timer will not advance

the timer will need to be replaced if it's stuck in the mode as you stated. the timer is built with cog teeth gears that rotate slowly as the timer operates normally. If a cog tooth breaks off the timer is stuck in that position causing your problem here

Kenmore dryer model 110 does not stop during automatic cycle


Make sure the small orange wire is connected to the 250 limit at the base of the heater assy. That is what powers the motor on auto cycle.

Roper dryer res7648kq0, replaced heat element, thermal fuse, cycling thrm, thermal kit, checked outlet, circuit breaker, still not heat, will not advance on AUTO, but will on timed cycle. Now what?


Wow.
In electric dryers with an AUTO cycle; the heater runs on 220 volts, but the timer motor runs on 110 volts. There is a resistor in the system to cut down the voltage. If the resistor is bad, you will see the same symptoms as if a thermostat was bad. The timer motor will not run in the automatic cycle. You need to make sure that you test for continuity in the resistor.
I've looked at two parts diagrams for your washer and cannot find a sensor anywhere in either, so the thermostat is what tells the timer to advance once the dryer reaches a preset temperature.
The thermostat will only tell the timer to advance if the dryer reaches the proper temperature, if you have some clogging in the vents, the dryer may never reach the proper temperature, and thus not advance on the auto cycle. but i'm sure you've probably checked that. I'm baffled. Let me know how it pans out if you can. Thanks. I'm still trying to find a wiring diagram for that model.

thanks,

Mike

Takes 4 ever to dry clothes. Will run & run when on auto dry.


If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle: The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees. When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.) The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But...if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

The drum on my dryer will turn when I set the timer to any setting, but the timer does not work, nor does it heat up. Any suggestions?


See if the timer advances in the timed dry or the auto dry cycles. If the timer advances in timed dry but not in auto dry, then you could have a wire connection failure in the orange wire from the heating element to the timer.

If the timer will not advance in either type of cycle, then I recommend checking the timer part number that you are using.

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.

Motor runs, but timer does not advance, no heat.


if the timer is on auto it won't advance if there is no heat,you'll need a meter to read out parts in dryer,is it gas or electric?try first by checking the thermal fuse on the blower wheel housing,if that's good check the heater if it's electric,if it's gas check the ignitor,sensor gas coilssend model number and if it's gas or electric next time

My Amana Model NDG5800AWW dryer has ceased to dry clothes dependably. The Only setting that still sort of works is HIGH timed drying, and this heats up to what used to be the "delicate" setting....


if you are using the auto dry setting and the dryer is still running after 5 hours you either have a timer issue or a thermostat problem.

The timer is driven by a motor, if the timer motor is bad the timer wont time out.

in the auto dry cycle the thermostat has to cycle off and on which then sends power to the timer again advancing the timer.

set the timer in a timed dry cycle for say ten minutes, if the timer advances and turns off then you know the timer works. if it doesnt advance you have a timer motor issue,

if the problem is the auto cycle, you could replace the thermostat, about $20 american. however a clock timer would be cheaper.

Based on how old is your machine and do you want to stick a timer in it after already paying the service man is up to you.

A basic bath towel load should be dry in about 50 minutes, this varies on how good your seals are and how long a vent you are running, if the dryer vent was plugged you already have shortened the life of your heating element.
