You may have a faulty timer, or a safety limit is shutting down the dryer because it is heating up. How long do you have to wait before you can turn it back on after it goes off?

SOURCE: Time skips from 18 minutes to 6 minutes on automatic mode

It is the moisture sensor system, it is not sensing the wet clothes. Open the door, inside you should see a part with 2 metal bars that is around 3 inches long, clean these bars with a mult purpose cleaner. Sometimes fabric softner sheets and detergent builds up on this so that the machine cannot sense the moisture. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: dryer runs for 2-5 minutes

When you have to hold the start button to run the dryer you are doing the job of the motor centrifigal switch. Initially you press the button and the motor turns over closing the motor switch so it will run and heat to dry your clothes. These days that switch is not replaced, only the motor. So you need a motor and I will be happy to find you one if you can supply me with a model number.

Dryer is set to run 40 mins when it shouts off at 0 on the dryer is has only run 20 mins according to my stove timer


Dryer has a moisture sensor that detects the clothes are dry so it shuts off earlier. If the clothes are still damp then the dryer vent may be plugged and causing the unit to run hot or not able to fully evacuate the air from the machine. Clean the vent and make sure it's completely free and try again. If it short cycles again and clothes still damp you may have a sensor controller issue.

I have an Amana NED7200TW dryer that is approx. 2 1/2 years old and am having issues. The first sign of a problem was it would not come back on after running a 40-50 minute cycle. Nothing would come on,...


Open the cabinet and look for lint buildup around the motor. Lint will act like a blanket and hold to heat in on the motor which in turn will cause it to shut down by way of it's safety mechanism. Check that out and post back your findings.

I have a 6 station orbit timer and I have problem with station 2 odd days coming on again after station 4 odd days the time is set to come on at 6 am and run for 60 min an10 min after it shuts off to start...


I am somewhat confused about your station numbers. How many stations do you have? What is Ihappening with stations 1, 3, 5, 6?
Regardless, this is probably what is happening.
No matter how many stations you have, YOU ONLY PUT IN ONE START TIME. That one start time begins the cycle that starts with station 1 and proceeds to the other stations based on your station RUN times.
If you have one start time of 6:00 am, and a run time of 60 minutes for each zone, then
At 6:00 am station 1 starts.
at 7:00, station 1 shuts off & station 2 starts.
at 8:00, station 2 shuts and station 3 starts, etc.
You are not programming the individual start times for each station.
If you put in more than one start time, the timer remembers and will run all stations then go back and begin again and if there is a third start time, it will begin a third time.

Hi I have an Electrolux dryer which has started showing the error message e60, when i hold the start button and the one next to ity I get error e62 showing can you help?


the "E60" error code will appear when there is an error with the door switch and sensor, An unbalanced door will produce the E60 code. Try to close the door gently and listen for the click. If the error remains, the door switch may need to be replaced.

the "E62" error code will appear when the lint filter and tubing need to be cleaned or replaced. The dryer will start and run for 15 seconds before shutting off. It will restart when prompted and run for another 15-20 seconds before shutting off. These steps must be repeated until the dryer continues to run the full cycle. Tim

Descaling process counts down on the displat but no solution is running through the unit and thr counter stops on 1 min remaining


This is normal behavior, your machine is fine.
For example, the machine says "5 minutes remaining" and then it goes 5:00, 4:59, 4:58....etc all the way down to 4:01.Then it changes to "4 minutes remaining". Which is 4:00, 3:59, 3:58, etc.
So at "1 minute remaining" the machine is really at 1:00, then 0:59, then 0:58 and all the way down to 0:01.So, after the "1 minute remaining" goes away, the machine is actually done cleaning itself.
