Sounds like you have a problems with your timer. What happens is the time has keys that strike the different notches in the timer. Since the dryer is not shutting off itself, there must be a problem with the last setting before off. The switch is not opening allowing the dryer to shut off.

LG Dryer takes too long to dry clothes

Sure the outside vent is not clogged up? If so it will overheat and turn it self off and do a poor job of drying the clothes.

Also check and make sure that all of the heating elements are working properly.

My Neptue dryer wont dry unless I run it more than one cycle. model no. mdg5500awq. all lights work and seems to run fine it just wont dry the cloths unless I run it at least twice and jeans are three or...

Turn dryer on and go outside to the vent and check for a good amount of air coming out. If you do not have a good amount of air coming out, take the exhaust tubes apart and clean.

MY dryer wont dry all the way like it used to. Have to run it through a second cycle?? Could it be a moisture sensor?

It could be if you have it set on Auto dry the thermister is not working properly.But its much more likley the their is a clog or restriction in yor exhaus duct that is venting the dryer. Start by running the dryer and going outside and checking airflow should have agood flow of warm air,if not the entire system should be cleaned not just the flex hose behind unit.. You need good air circulation to dry the clothes properly thats what helps get rid of the moisture. If not what you end up with after one cycle is warm moist clothing..... Hope this Helps with your concern

Dryer will not shut off in any 'auto' mode. Time display ticks down, then jumps up again and keeps running. Dryer does works properly when 'timed dry' is selected. Checked and cleaned exhaust vent. ...

How long is the vent from the dryer to the outside? Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance.
Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dry-ability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads.
Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing.
If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry.

I have model # crgr7900A31 gas dryer front end loading. The dryer will not shut off. It continues to run.

Hi, If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.
Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle: The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees. When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.) The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

Our Kitchenaid dryer won't heat up - it's still under warranty, but we have a 2 month old and need it working asap - it runs and stops fine. For the past few months it has been turning itself on and off...

Hello, Before you proceed you should understand any service you perform on your dryer could potentially void any warranty, It is your discretion. I wouldn't be too concerned about the unit cycling on & off at the end of a cycle, many dryer's have an automatic "wrinkle guard" feature and that is how they function and some cycle on & off for up to an hour after or until the door is opened. I also am not clear if it is gas or electric soooo...if it's electric, disconnect the vent from the dryer and run a "timed" dry cycle not "auto-dry" without a load and see how it perform's. If it performs ok then you have your problem...poor or blocked venting. On the other hand if it is gas, you should not run the unit without it exhausting outside and consiquently you'll have to wait for a authorized pro. The other thing you want to investigate is how well the washer is spinning the clothes, are they fairly well rinsed before entering the dryer ? Just something to consider, obviously soaking wet is not good for drying in the dryer. Let me know if any of this help's and I'll watch for your response. Good luck and thanks for coming to fixya today. Please rate the info provided positively if helpful and reply to me if not helpful. Thanks again, macmarkus :)
