Check the door switch. If the plunger is stuck, the dryer keeps running.

Hi Chloe,
Depending on where you bought this unit, typically, the first 30 days is in store exchange. This is a door switch problem. If you bought it online, contact the seller. I don't know what the warranty on this unit is..

Hello PB,

What i would most suspect as being the problem of why the dryer just stops randomly before the cycle is done,is a problem with the door switch or the door catch...does the dryer restart as soon as you restart it?? if yes i would check that the door catch was broken so the door will pop open stopping the dryer. Also check the door switch using a meter set to measure ohms and see if the contact is burnt ( a good door switch will be zero ohms resistiance)

My freezer door is stuck and refuses to open!

May be iced up . Gently hit side of drawer then the other . Lift up on drawer . If after many tries this way the only other hope is to unplug the fridge and keep trying till it lets go. You might try prying the gasket and applying a blow dryer . Keep moving the dryer so as not to get one spot too hot.

The flame in my Amana dryer (LGB109 W2) lights but keeps going out? Is it the solenoid? Termastat? At first it wouldn't ignite. Now it always ignites but doesn't stay on.


if your laundry room has a door try leaving the door to your laundry room open, that may do it, gas dryers and appliances must be able to breathe..

Not starting can be a door switch problem. Maybe when you removed the cover, something came unplugged. Flame suddenly stopping can be a sooted or dusty flame sensor. They do go bad, too. See if it can be bypassed for a test ONLY.
