Question about Dryers
I have a GE Dryer model #DDG7180RAL that drys OK but will not shut off. The timer does not move at all. I originally believed that the timer was/is bad, but my wife cleaned out some built up lint (beyond the lint screen), and the timer worked for a few times. It has sense stopped working again.
Is this the timer or a lint/vent problem?
I does sound like the timer has went out on your dryer, but there could be other problems as well. Sometimes exccesive lint build-up can cause a heat transfer issue with the thermostats. On GE models, anything o stop or delay heat transfer could cause the timer to stop working. If im not mistaken, this is a gas dryer correct? It could be a number of things that could stop the forward motion of the timer, primarily a stuck or inoperative thermostat, a defective flame sensor (highly doubtful if it dries), or a wiring problem. Be sure to check out all your wiring, then if you wanted to, try and replace the thermostats. Just dont want to see you waste a lot of money if it was a bad timer.
