The timer not moving means that the timer has gone bad. The heating problem may have to do with the timer too. You can take off the vent tube of the dryer and make sure it is not restricted (from dryer to outside) If this is plugged it will also take longer to dry your clothes.

you could have bad gas coils.if the timer doesn't advance in auto dry most likely you're having heat problems,when the dryer heats and then the heat shuts off then the timer will advance,when the heat comes back on the timer stops,it does this until the clothes are dry.gas coils when starting to fail will work normally until they get hot and then no heat until the coils cool down then they will work again,on time dry the timer just keeps counting down until the time runs out no matter what's happening to the dryer.i've seen the coils fail after the first 10 minutes and other times for 20 to 30 minutes but usually if the load is big and in time dry the clothes will feel warm and you'll need to dry them a second time to get them fully dry,also while you're in ther you should clean out the dryer at least once a year,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vacuum out the cabinet where the motor is and blow out the vent line,if it's a long run i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,remove it from the back of the dryer,stick the leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out,i've blown out birds nest out of some lines, your clothes will dry on time,you won't go through so many parts and you won't have to worry about a dryer fire,the gas coils are on top of the gas valve,remove the two phillips screws,lift off the cover and change out the coils.next time you use the dryer keep an eye on it,after it runs for 20 minutws start checking it,you'll hear a click,then another click and the flame will lite,look into the gas tube and if the flame isn't liting then you have bad gas coils.

THE TIMER IS NOT ROTATING(I CAN MANUALLY ROTATE IT,BUT IT DOES NOT MOVE WHEN THE DRYER IS RUNNING). DRYER DOES NOT PRODUCE ENOUGH HEAT AND IT TAKES LOT OF TIME (4HRS)TO DRY THE LAUNDRY.


You need to buy a new timer and replace it. Be careful when replacing the timer as there are many electrical contacts in the back of the timer so when remove it, please label all the wires. Please follow the instruction from the manufacturer how to replace the timer. Of course, make sure you unplug the dryer because the dryer is powered by 220~240 VAC not 110~120 VAC.
As for the heater, there are two possibilities. The first one is, part of the heating element is open circuit and therefore, there is not enough heat to your clothing. The second possibility is, your timer contacts is broken, when the timer asks for high heat, the electricity supposes going to all the heating elements, but since the timer contacts are broken, you have only part of the heating elements working. The heating elements are quite easy to replace but please replace the timer first. You may fix both problems once you replaced the timer. WL

Hotpoint nvl333gyoww gas dryer's timer stopped working and ran for an extended length of time (about a day). After looking over the dryer, i noticed that during the no heat cycle the timer would work. So...


the timer : if you use time dry the timer should always move and complete the cycle. if you use auto dry the timer uses a sensor to tell the timer to move. If your not getting any heat your sensor might not tell the timer to move.

So lets start with the no heat problem. First make sure your Vent is clear or just disconnect the vent and put a pair of womans stocking over the end to keep the dust down, This will ensure you do not have a blocked vent. ((( If you have a blocked vent on a gas dryer the safty sensor will shut off the gas valve and you will only get a little bit of heat))) Now try the dryer for small load, ((( if this solved your problem then you have a cloged vent )))

If this did not solve your problem then the coils on your gas valve in the dryer are probably bad.

Hotpointdryer timer problem


There are two coils in the heating element, and if one burns out, the timer will not advance in automatic dry. The timer should still advance when using manual (or timed) dry.

Does sound like the timer, although the clock is moving, the contact for the heater element is burned out inside the timer, you probably have used this timed dry for your normal day to day use and worn out the contact, new timer required.
