Hello Brian;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

I am glad your dryer is working. At least you can dry your clothes, open the dryer door and check to see if they are dry.

What you have is a dryer timer cycle control failure. I wish I could provide you with more information on how to repair your dryer, but you have not given me the model number. Dryers are not dryers when it comes to the controls.

Please resubmit your question to this web site with your dryer model number.

I would be more than happy to walk you through the repair.

    Hello Brian; I am going to have to add several comments due to limited space per comment and all of the probable causes. In general you have a air flow or heat problem. The blower wheel draws air through the dryer and pushes the air out the vent. If the dryer won't stop, the blower wheel may be plugged up or not be spinning properly, which reduces the air flow. Check to see if the blower wheel is securely fastened to the drive motor shaft. Unplug the dryer. Looking fron the back there is a housing assembly on the left side. It is mounted with several screws. Theses are duel screws. They can be removed either with a hex head tool or a flat head screw driver.

    The heating element warms the air before the air enters the dryer drum. If the dryer won't stop, it may be because the heating element isn't working - which greatly increases the drying time. Check the heating element for continuity. Facing the back of your dryer on the right hand side is another manifold. The heating element is at the bottom. Just like the fan air manifold it is mounted with the same screws. Unpug the dryer and remove the manifold. You need a multi-meter to check the heating element. Multi-meters are inexpensive, $25.00 US. They are very useful and will save you alot of money in the long run. Set the meter to the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol). Touch the 2 probes on the meter together. You should get a reading of 1.0. Now, touch the two electrical contacts on the heater, one probe on each contact. You should get a reading of '0'. If you do not the the heating element is bad, you have no continuity. The original manufacturer no longer provides this part. You are going to have to search the web. You are looking for part number 3403590.

    Although not common to the problem, but may be probable cause. Using you multi-meter, check the thermal cut off fuse. This is located on the left hand side, in the middle of your heating element manifold. Remove the 2 wire leads, again having set your meter to the lowest Ohms, with the meter reading 1.0, remove the 2 wire leads. Touch one probe to each contact. If the meter reads anything other than '0', it is bad. Your part number 279816. If this is bad you also need to replace the high limit sensor. This is located on the same manifold at the bottom below the thermal fuse. This also has 2 wire contacts. Using your meter check this as well. The high limit part number is 397767. Well might as well check your internal bias operator, part number 3387134. This also only has 2 wire leads. It is located on the right hand side of your blower wheel. I wish you well, Peter, Baltimore, Maryland USA

    The blower wheel draws air through the dryer and pushes the air out the vent. If the dryer won't stop, the blower wheel may be plugged up or not be spinning properly, which reduces the air flow. Check to see if the blower wheel is securely fastened to the drive motor shaft. Facing the back of the dryer the blowere manifold is on the left hand side. It is attached with serveral screws. Unplug the dryer, remove the cover and inspect the wheel. Dryer sheets and fabric softener can leave a residue on the lint filter, reducing the air flow. If the dryer won't stop, check to be sure air can flow freely, clean the filter as needed.

GE dryer starts but..... stops


What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.
Thanks/Mike

My dryer does not blow hot and will not shut off and no digital reading will display.


Hello Bryan;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

So, here are the probable causes:

1.) The blower wheel draws air through the dryer and pushes the air out the vent. If the dryer won't stop, the blower wheel may be plugged up or not be spinning properly, which reduces the air flow. Check to see if the blower wheel is securely fastened to the drive motor shaft. Check the blower hot air discharge manifold for blockage.

2a.) If the dryer won't stop, the gas valve solenoid coils might be defective. Over time these coils will fail, causing the burner to run intermittently. If the dryer is not heating properly it may not stop. Replace the coils as a set.

2.b) The heating element warms the air before the air enters the dryer drum. If the dryer won't stop, it may be because the heating element isn't working - which greatly increases the drying time. Check the heating element for continuity.

3.) Dryer sheets and fabric softener can leave a residue on the lint filter, reducing the air flow. If the dryer won't stop, check to be sure air can flow freely, clean the filter as needed.

4.) Although not as common, if the dryer won't stop it may be because the moisture sensor is either defective or shorted

5.) If the dryer won't stop, check the high limit thermostat. If defective, the high limit thermostat can turn off the heat prematurely, lengthening the time it takes to dry a full load. This is not common.

6.) The cycling thermostat regulates the temperature of the air in the dryer. If the dryer won't stop, it may be caused by a defective cycling thermostat turning off the heat too early. This is not common.

7.) The thermistor senses the temperature of the air in the dryer and cycles the heat on and off. If the dryer won't stop, the thermistor may be defective. This is not common.

MAY BE BAD MOTOR WITH BAD WINDINGS USUALLY STOPS AFTER 20 MINUTES OF USE? OR HEATING ELEMENT IS OVERHEATING? DUE TO BAD VENTING? THERMAL CUT OFF KEEPS SHUTTING IT DOWN?

Dryer is occasionally leaving rusty looking smudge marks on clothing.


don't open door (stop dryer) until cool-down and dryer stops. many times the heating element is still hot and when you stop the dryer in the middle of the cycle, the rear of the dryer where the heating element is, will scorch your clothes.

Dryer stops in the middle of cycle


The door latch has failed, that's why your dryer stops. When the door opens it stops the drum and turns off. Fix the latch.

Kenmore 80 series dryer stoping after running for 10 to 15 minute


Start any cycle. Dryer runs for 10 to 15 minutes, then stops before cycle is complete. Start again, stops again in 10 to 15 minutes.

Whirlpool dryer


If your dryer stops during its cycle, wait ten minutes and start dryer again. If dryer starts, then the motor was overheating.

Solution, Check for lint blockage around the motor and for possible overloading. If dryer repeatedly stops during its cycle, especially during consecutive loads, replace motor.

Good luck
