Dryer runs with no heat and never shuts off on its own


what are you running it on?auto or more or less,if so the timer will not advance to off without heat,usually the heat comes on,the dryer heats up until it reaches temp.the heater shuts off and then the timer will start to advance to off,when the heat comes back on the timer will stop advancing and the heat will come on,it will do this until the clothes are dry,so no heat the timer will not move,now if you put it on time dry the timer should count down no matter what just like a clock.if you open the door and look around the opening where you put the clothes in you'll see a tag with the model number send this and i can help you.

Amana dryer not advancing on auto


Make sure the vent from the dryer to the outside is clean.
Reduced air flow can cause your symptom.

You can remove the vent hose from the dryer and operate the dryer in the automatic cycle.'
If the timer advances you know the vent needs cleaning.
Clean the lint filter housing also.
A flashlight helps to see all the way down the housing.

Motor runs, but timer does not advance, no heat.


if the timer is on auto it won't advance if there is no heat,you'll need a meter to read out parts in dryer,is it gas or electric?try first by checking the thermal fuse on the blower wheel housing,if that's good check the heater if it's electric,if it's gas check the ignitor,sensor gas coilssend model number and if it's gas or electric next time

Dryer does not heat up nor does the timer rotate as dryer runs could the timer be broken causing the dryer not to heat up?


IF you have the timer set in the auto dry setting, then it will Not advance if it does not heat. Set it on the time dry and monitor if the timer now advances.
A no heat issue can be one of many failed components--i.e. thermo fuse, ignitor, coil assembly etc

Timer does not advance, dryer keeps running.


in auto dry the timer motor receives voltage to advance by way of the cycling thermostat.[each time the thermostat opens to stop the heat the switch in the thermo then changes that voltage up to the timer and it will advance timer motor until it closes again for heat and this continues till clothes are dry]so as long as timer is receiving that voltage and not advancing then i agree its the timer.other wise it could be a failing/intermident cycling thermostat.a thought.in timed dry the timer motor receives constant voltage.so if never stalls in timed dry it may be a clue that the timer is ok. i hope this helps you understand whats going on. God bless ,tom

Dryer doesn't heat and runs constantly


depending on the model; if the timer is in the automatic cycle it will not advance if there is no heat, it must heat in order to satisfy a thermostat to tell the timer to advance this is what makes it automatic. If the timer gets to the end of the timed cycle and will not advance to off, sounds like a bad resistor connected to the timer, I would first check the heat circuit to find out why its not heating. Dont mean to complicate, but everything in the dryer has something to do with heating, element,thermostats, temp switch, timer and even the motor. Check for burnt wires at the terminal block for the cord. hope this helps.....
