Whirlpool AWZ 8578 - does not stop, always needs manual switch off


These symptoms most usually are a bad timer/control. If the dial turns all by itself, and continues to turn by itself like a clock does, it is likely a timer/control must be replaced. Same results if it will not advance by itself either.
You could type in "Sears Parts" for the new part, typing in your complete model number. If you wished to try a used control, after obtaining a part number, you could type that in to "e-bay" and see what you find in new or used parts there. I do.
Be blessed.

Won't stop, have to manually open door


Sounds like a bad timer. Your dryer is a Whirlpool product.so a replacement timer should be easy to locate. If the timer is advancing but the dryer won't stop, the problem could be the control unit. Run another load of clothes and take notice of the timer's position. If it doesn't run out, then it's very likely the timer. The video below shows step by step instructions for replacing the timer unit.

My dryer will not stop running


Timer motor might be shot. Check it for continuity. If you cannot get a reading then your timer needs replacement. If the timer motor is fine check the heating element for short to frame.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II gas dryer won't turn off.


Dryer Won't Stop Running
  • Ultimate Car II Dryers are fitted with a mechanical timer that sends an impulse to the control circuit board to stop running once the set amount of drying time has elapsed. This is because, should an electronic timer fail, this would necessitate the replacement of the entire circuit board. Confirm that the mechanical timer is indeed broken by opening the dryer's door. If the dryer stops, the circuit board is working fine and is not the problem. Simply slide off the protective faceplate of the dryer, unscrew the control board beneath, and flip it over. Connected to the back of the timer's knob should be a small round device with two wires running to the circuit board within the body of the dryer. Unscrew this device from the back of the knob and disconnect the wires. A replacement timer costs a few dollars and should screw into place without trouble. Reconnect the wires and put the dryer back together. It should work fine now.

KitchenAid electric dryer, Model # 750LQ, has a broken (I believe)cycle selector (timer) control. The dryer turns on when the control is activcated by turning to the right, but is not in automated mode...


If you are setting the unit on automatic and the timer itself is not moving forward to the shut off position and you have to manually turn the timer off then you would need to order and replace the timer itself. If you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick
p.s If you need me to look up the part number for your unit please provide the full model number of your dryer and I will try to locate the part number Thanks Rick

Dryer timer won't shut off at end of cycle. Dryer runs, but no heat. It is a Whirlpool model number LGR4634JQ2.


Since you say that the dryer runs but have no heat, plus the timer won't shut off the odds are the timer is bad. The timer would tell the burner when to be on and when to shut down.
