The timer is not advancing and there is no heat coming out. I replaced the timer unit for a cost of $100 and nothing changed. Any other suggestions? SuziNoHeat

    Does the dryer run at all? Have you verified the voltage at the wall receptacle and terminal block?

My dryer keeps shutting off after a few 10 to 13 minutes...and clothes are not drying. An element was changed some time ago. it does heat up but keeps shutting down...is it the timer or element?


Turn the breaker to the dryer completely off and back on again. Also check that nothing is blocking the venting. Remove the vent hose and run the unit if you are not sure. Make sure the lint trap is cleaned first. It probably is neither element nor timer since it is heating and quits without the timer advancing completely.

Will not heat just cold air and once it reaches 32 min left it stays there


Sorry for the troubles sounds like you have a bad timer since its not heat then the timer wont advance past a certain point. I would recommend you calling a qualified service technician come look at it and to replace the bad timer or you can do this yourself. You will need the model number off the dryer which will be on the back of the unit on the dash or inside the door opening take that number to your local appliance parts house so they can get you the proper timer. Now for installing it make sure you unplug the unit and then you will have to remove the back cover panel on the dash once removed slowly remove wire by wire replacing it to where its suppose to go on the new timer if you put a wire in the wrong spot you will fry the new timer once completed remove the old timer it should have 2 screws holding it to the dash and replace it with the new timer and put your cover back on and then plug it back up and set the timer to 60mins on the timed dry and tune it on and see if it Advances and heats. I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Dono heat and timer dont turn


HI. Due to the fact that the timer is not advancing, this will lead me to believe that the timer is the culprit here. The timer is equipped with a motor. this motor, when energized, will advance the timer dial, thus, activating the unit, and progressing the cycle. If the motor is damaged, as in your case, the unit will not heat, or run correctly. Simply replacing the timer control module will correct this problem.

Replace this damaged timer mechanism asap.

LER8648LW0 Dryer. Not heating, runs continuously (stops w/ door opened). Timer not advancing. Checked fuse(0 ohms), thermostats (0 ohms) and coil (10 ohms). Timer was at 10-11 K ohms,(high end). So...


One side of the element powers from the timer and the other side from the motor . Remove one wire from the element , and check which wire is not getting 120 V . Trace the wire NOT getting 120V and it will lead either to the timer or the motor , providing that the small t-stat looking piece (thermal cut-off) located close to the top of the heater box , shows continuity . If it does not , then pt # 3392519 is for it and the hi-limit t-stat . If you replace it , then replace both that come in the kit .

Won't heat, won't advance on auto, won't shut off on timed. air only fine


I suspect you have a timer motor problem. My experience has been in most cases you cannot buy just the timer moter, you need to purchase the entire timer....at costly expense. If you can get your ear near the timer while running, first listen to hear the motor. Usually when the motor is going to quit, it becomes fairly noisy. In any case, the timer should advance,

T700 Dryer Won't heat


not turning off, is caused by a small stepper motor attached to the back of the timer, that actually moves the timer (if a mechanical knob, my memory for obscure (sorry) models isnt perfect) they fail and are replaceable, separately to the timer, or the timer can be replaced with a rebuilt one, at approx the same cost as buying a stepper motor,

No heat is caused by the failure of a thermal cutout(thermal fuse overtemp cutout or any of a dozen other names) a small device like this 5850e1d.jpg or this 4947033.jpg screwed on the ducting between the fan housing and the exhaust, with wires to the terminals.
when you stopped the unit while it was very hot, heat built up enough that the thermal cutout melted. test with ohmmeter or bulb and battery, no conduct -replace

Notes
There are only a few cutouts common to most dryer models the local parts guy will have one to fit, even if marked with a different brand name,
generic compatible timer available at local parts guy
