if it's not advacing in time dry you have a bad timer,that timer should count down no matter what the dryer is doing,if you have it in auto then it could be no heat,when it's in auto or more or less cycle the heat comes on and the timer won't move until the heat shuts down,when the heat is off timer advances,when the heat starts the timer stops,it will do this until the clothes are dry and then timer will shut off but in timed cycle,timer isn't counting down get a new timer.
If it's stopping during a wash cycle, suspect the heater elemant not heating up and moving the controller on. See if it runs fine during a spin/drain cycle. If it is very slow on all programs, try the noise filter capacitor before condemning the controller.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but what your describing is a classis sign of a bad motor. When the motor is bad it will run will its cool...when it heats up it shuts off and will restart for a short time when colled off till once again hot and shuts off again.
I would pretty much guess it's a faulty heating element. After the machine stops after filling with water and running a while to get the clothes wetit stops to heat the water. Listen carefully to hear the water heating up, it sound simular to an electric kettle. If this does not happen the program is unable to advance.
MAybe the motorr is on an overload, check to see if the motor is heated and running slow, check the capacitor, replace and test. Check if there is friction on the spindle. Finally the programm controller by itself can be a suspect if all the above seems OK.
Hi, You don't mention the model or make of dryer but this problem is usually due to a small component in the machine called a thermal overload switch. This switch stops the dryer when the elements get too hot. However, it often malfunctions and turns off the dryer the moment you use heat settings. The overload switch is inexpensive and should easily be found at your local appliance dealer. Best wishes, Graemevm
