The timer naturally won't shut off till the sensors inside the drum no longer get a capacitance reading when the clothes are completely dry. The moisture control board relays power to the timer motor when it is sure the clothes is dry. The heating element could be broken.Unplug the dryer. Take the back off. Get the heater off and take a look at it. Check your vent pipe, if it has lint in it then your high limit is probably open. The fuse ain't broken because the dryer still runs. Both parts in the kit need to be replaced. because the big one is supposed to shut down at 250F the little one(high limit) mounts in the upper heater housing and gives up the ghost when the temp reachs 300F. The fuse mounted on the blower housing is rated to die at 350F. It is tied into the door safety switch, when it dies it is the same as if you opened the door. The dryer will not run. BTW: if you ain't got the $ to get a new limit you can reset it by banging it on the floor in a fit of rage. LOL

Dryer runs but no heat and it does not shut off (timer not shutting dryer off)


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

What's wrong with my dryer & how do I fix it? Kenmore 70 series dryer won't shut off!! It stops when the door is open but won't shut off on it's own.


If the timer just keeps going past the next off and never shuts off then it could be one of two things. First, is the heating still on when door is opened? If it is then the electric heating element is broken in half and one half is getting neutral by laying against the metal heater case which will cause this problem. (assuming a electric dryer). If not then the timer is the culprit and check fleabay for NOS.

Kenmore 68702 electric dryer heat doesnt shut off


If the dryer completes the cycle bit does not shut off, then you have to replace the timer control assembly.

If instead the dryer hangs at the middle of the cycle and does not advance, check the thermostate.

If the dryer does not heath and does not advance, then check the heating element, the thermostat and the fan.

My Kenmore dryer (model # 11077732795) would not shut off or heat up. I replaced the timer and thermal fuse. The dryer now heats up and the timer moves but never shuts off. Any suggestions.


Just inside the drum on the front panel is a metal sensor strip that detects a change in capacitance as the clothes get dryer. When no more dampness is read the motor is energised by the moisture sensing board. Get the goop off the sensor strips so they can send a dry message.
