My dryer heats but doesnt stop wben timer is set


In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

Goes into codes o1 and o2 and sometimes the numbers on the time dry flickers back and forth to other numbers


The first thing that comes to mind is that you are experiencing a ground fault. If you have any knowledge of electronics I try cracking open your control panel and trace down your ground lines and see if one hasn't jarred loose over time

Doesnt get very hot


Most likely the heating element,,,but there are also about 30 other items that could cause the unit to run and not heat. The first is the line voltage coming into the unit. Other items could be the thermal limiter, a burnt wire, A shorted thermostat,a burnt contact in the timer. Temperature selector switch, operating thermostat, hi-limit thermostat...a sensor, electronci control... and the list goes on.
Do you have a voltage meter and know how to use IT? Waiting to hear from you,Eric and Ann Campion

The dryer appears to be overheating. The top of the dryer housing get hot while drying a load of cloths. More than normal. Checked dryer vent, lint catch (clean) and exhaust hose and all appears clear.


Excess lint can also cause a dryer to get too hot. Again, you should check the filter and the vent for lint. Clean them if needed. Another thing that could cause a dryer to get too hot is a bad blower. This would need to be replaced if damaged. You should also, never use white plastic vent. This can cause your dryer to overheat and also be a fire hazard.
If you are not already a repairman, there will be some problems that arise that you cannot fix. The idea is to know what to look for and to fix whatever problems you can. This way, you don't purchase a new one or call a repairman unless it's necessary. When making repairs, always unplug your clothes dryer for safety. If parts are needed, make sure you have your manufacturer and serial number with you before going shopping. This will help ensure that you buy the right parts and save you another trip to the store. Most of us are intimidated at the thought of dryer repair. Just keep in mind that a lot of common dryer problems are simple (excess lint) and can be fixed by anyoneIf the dryer heats when the Fabric Care/Temperature switch is set to AIR FLUFF (No Heat), check the following:
-HARNESS/CONNECTION
-HEATER RELAY
-FABRIC CARE SWITCH
-EVEN HEAT CONTROL
Procedure:
1. Perform the Fabric Care/Temperature Switch Test
2. Set the following configuration:
Door- must be closed
Fabric Care/Temperature switch- AIR FLUFF
Timer- TIMED DRY
3. Press the PUSH TO START switch
a. Check voltage on Heater Relay. If P3-1 to P3-2 is 0VDC, replace the Heater Relay
b. If P3-2 is 48VDC, replace the Even Heat control.

Whirlpool duet dryer control panel problem


It sounds like you will need a new control panel. There are a number of places online that carry them.

http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-GEW925-%3d%3dd651896ei1060819&PartID=1060819

is just one example, but you might be able to find a better deal by shopping around. These guys will let you return it if it turns out that it didn't fix the issue. Also, when you shop around, be sure to use the complete model number on the sticker inside the door of the unit. There are many different versions of the same model out there- every year Appliance companies come up with a new button to add and one to take away, so if you don't have the complete model number, the part may not fit.

Replacement is actually pretty easy.

Unpredictable heat


hi i think you have problem with thermostat. t hermostats, the dryer temperature control switches, are controlled by the temperature inside the dryer or by the heat of the motor. One or more thermostats on the panel can be adjusted to control the temperature in the dryer. Operating thermostats sometimes stick, causing control problems. These thermostats are usually positioned near the exhaust duct bulkhead or the fan housing of the dryer. Remove the back panel of the dryer to get at them. 
Before you make any checks, try tapping the housing of the thermostats lightly with the handle of a screwdriver. This may jar the contacts loose. Temperature control switches are located behind the dryer control panel, and the panel must be removed for switch testing or replacement. Here's how to test and replace the thermostat:

Step 1: To check the control panel thermostat, make sure power is off to the dryer. Test the thermostat with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Clip one probe of the VOM to each thermostat terminal. If the meter reads zero, the thermostat is working. If the needle jumps to a high reading, the thermostat is faulty and should be replaced.

Step 2: If necessary, replace the thermostat with a new one of the same type. Connect the new thermostat the same way the old one was connected.

Step 3: To check an operating thermostat, first make absolutely certain that the power to the dryer has been turned off and the dryer is cool. Then disconnect the leads to one side of the thermostat. Test an operating thermostat with a VOM set to the RX1 scale; clip one probe to each terminal of the thermostat. Disconnect the leads to one side of the thermostat so that the meter won't give a false reading. If the meter reads zero, the thermostat is working. If the needle jumps to a high reading, the thermostat is faulty and should be replaced.
thank you .............please rate it
