Hi, I'm posting my own solution to my problem. Thank you fixya and the many people who had a similar problem who sent in solutions to others on this site.
The door switch to the dryer was hitting a worn out area of the gasket surrounding the door and prevented a connection to the tumbler. After manually checking the tumbler to make sure it wasn't stuck, I temporarily put a piece of masking tape over the switch with the door open. Then I turned the timer knob on while the door was open to see if the dryer started and voila! it started. Hope this solution helps someone else. Iris

The dryer works fine in TimeDry mode, but in Intellidry mode it dries very slowly. The "Moisture Moniture" indicator lights start and stay at "Less Dry". I have replaced the moisture...


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.

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.

My maytag dependable care plus electric dryer doesn't shut off


Does the timer move when it's almost ready to shut off if not most likely need a timer. Can you turn it by hand to finish the cycle and shut it off. If not must be timer.
Hope this helps

Dryer stops in the middle of cycle. It is not the door switch


There's not much here to work with. Is your dryer gas or electric? Do any of your clothes get dry? When you check inside, does if feel like it was warm when it turned off? How long does it run? My first guess would be the cycle timer. But you need to note if the drum was actually spinning and if the heat came on. If so, and everything was normal before it failed I'd go with the timer. If not ,there is another issue like a a safety switch for gas dryers which will not open the gas valve when the glow bar doesn't come up to temperature. Lastly, note where the dial points when it fails and most modern dryers have other cycle dials. Try one of those and see if it stops there too. You might just have a dead spot on the time because that is what you always use.

My Kenmore Dryer stops before the time I set is up.


Sounds like the operating thermastat may be bad letting it get too hot and causing the motor breaker to kick out . When it cools it will start again. Check all thermastats.
