On my kenmore dryer 970-c82062-00 I can get all 3 timers to start but the heated automatic dry portion does not time out.

that model number doesn't come up,you sure that isn't the serial number?also does the dryer have heat,when you run it on time dry the timer just counts down like a clock,when on auto or more or less the heat comes on until the dryer heats to temp. the heat shuts off and the timer will advance,when the heat comes back on the timer stops moving,it will do this until the clothes are dry,if you do have heat you could have a bad sensor or a bad cycling thermostat but you'll have to check it with a meter.send the model number and i can help you better.

Dryer wont stop buzzing

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is bad and need replaced. If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. replace the heating elements

I have a whirlpool dryer that doesn't heat up and it will not stop running and the dial doesn't seem to move

Hi, The timer will not move if there's no heat when you have it set on the automatic cycle. I need to know if this is electric or gas. Please get me a make/maodel 3 so I can help you through this.

I have a magtag gas dryer with that heat sensor cycle. when we set dial control there it does not move. It just runs ands runs. Clothes tumble for hours before their dry. Yet if I set dial control to timed...

Hi Joy Ann,

The automatic cycle of your dryer depends on air circulating in, through and out of your dryer efficiently. If air isn't circulating properly, your timer will stall and run forever.

Timed Dry, on the other hand is independent. The timer only does what it's told to do... count down time.

So, yes. You do have a blockage in the vent to outside. When you said the "Vents are clean", I presume you mean the lint filter. That's good. It's always good to keep that clear. What I'm talking about is the four inch vent tube from the dryer to the wall. How close is the back of the dryer to the wall? If it's less than 4", the vent is crushed. Take a flashlight and look behind the dryer without moving it. See that flex hose back there connecting the dryer to the wall? If it is pinched, so is your air flow. Either pull the dryer out about 8" from the wall, or shorten the hose.

If all of that checks out OK, though.. (your flex line to the wall isn't pinched) that means that the vent in the wall is blocked somewhere. Trust me... I've seen all kinds of things block vents to the outside. Bird nests mainly, squirrel's, reptiles, rodents... they all love to build nests in the warm place <--that would be your dryer exhaust.

Recommendation: pull the dryer out at LEAST 8" from the wall and see if that helps. If not, your Home's internal dryer vent should be professionally cleaned (should be done once a year for 2 story Homes).

Bottom line is this... if your dryer is heating, it's trying to do its' job. The only reason it can't is because air isn't circulating properly.

Look into it, Joy Ann... Dryer fires are serious and they are caused by blocked ventilation.

Hope this helps,

Gas dryer

blower motor relay is bad or the dials are bad
heres a way to check the dials
turn off the gas and run the dials if at anytime the dials stick during its cycle then you know this is the fault this usually the commen issues of all dryers the dials just wear out and so parts just dont work

also check the door switch this could be an issue why it gets cold clean out all vents and filters after "every use"
