Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

Whirlpool LGT7848AQ0 starts and stops after 1 minute, it wont start again unless I manually move the timer switch a bit and then it stops again. Sometimes it runs for a little longer, so we are drying moving the timer a bit every time it stops. Cleaned the vents, motor and ducking. Is it the switch?

If everything else works when the timer is in motion, then the timer is sticking. Replace timer.

SOURCE: Dryer stopping in middle of cycle but timer continues to run.

oK " It's your timer, it has to be replaced

it's not going threw all it cycles, will start but will not finish

not a big job, unscrew plate on back at the top you will see
timer , take it out and replace it

( can not stress enough that you have to unplug the electrical cord from the wall socket before working on a dryer or any appliance )

Replace the thermal fuse and the high limit switch.
They come as a set.
Clean the auto dry sensor with rubbing alcohol.

The buzzer wont stop when the cycle is done, it runs with the door open, and runs without pushing the start button.


"Tested start switch and it appears to be working normally". You need to be absolutely sure if the start switch is working and isn't sticking, which it sounds like. Isolate the start switch completely and then check it again with your DVOM. Make sure the switch moves easily without sticking.

Whirlpool dryer doesnt heat, time and shut off when you open the door


if you have it on time dry and it doesn't count down the timer is bad but it should stop when you open the door unless you have a broken door switch too,just open the door and push in on the switch with your finger,it should make a clicking sound,if not the door switch is also broke,if you have the timer on auto or more or less then it won't move without heat.on auto the heat comes on when the dryer reaches temp. the heat shuts off and the timer will advance a little,then the heat starts again and the timer stops,it will do this until the clothes are dry by using a sensor instead of time.

I have whirlpool ultimate care II and sometimes it stops working during washing, sometimes it wont start. now the only way it sometimes starts is when I switch the load size a few times, and then it will...


It seems a lot like a timer issue. Advice to you is the next time it stops just tap or knudge the timer knob, if it starts up then you just found your problem.

It sounds like the timer motor isn't advancing. You will have to replace the timer.

Stops during cycle


Maybe. Will the unit restart in the same position or do you have to move it? If it will work in the same position and all you're doing is waiting for a bit of cooldown...it could be a defective high limit switch that is resetting. If it will restart only after you move the timer, then change out the timer. This is a bit of a mystery since timers generally don't have 'dead spots'...they are designed differently than that.

Whirlpool not cooling properly


I would expect the defrost timer to stay in defrost 21 minutes. IT seems your timer is normal.
If turning the ref section temp colder made compressor come on, it could be that the thermostat is worn a little and just needs to stay on a little cooler setting. Check the freezer temp dial and It should be at just slightly more than 1/2 of available setting. If there is A B C you would want to be a little cooler than B about B and 1/4.
I hope this helps K S
