Dryer will not stop when clothes are dry in auto-sense mode


Try "timed" cycles. If it shuts off on timed it's not the timer. It's more likely it's not cycling on the thermostat due to an airflow problem like the vent. To rule that out (or in) run ONE load through it with the vent disconnected. If it shuts off you'll know where to look

Verify that the wrinkle prevent switch is good. If so, the timer is likely the problem. Sometimes the switch contacts inside the timer can be cleaned to restore operation, bit it is a tricky item to disassemble and reassemble.

The gas dryer works on timed dry but not any autosense cycles. The sensors were cleaned and 2 seperate service people checked it.


your post did not say if you have removed the vent tube and ran the dryer in any of the auto-sense cycles, I would do this first. If it runs normally with the vent disconnected then the vent is restricted. if you have already tried this then the reason it may not be working is that the wires(either blue or green) behind the sensor bars is/are disconnected/broken. There is a diagnostic mode you can enter to test the control's ability to sense the bar contact that is illustrated in the tech sheet which is located within the control panel, when you are in the diagnostic mode touch the two wires of the sensor together and if the light illuminates, it means the wiring to the sensor block and logic of the control is good. If the light doesn't illuminate, then either the control is bad or one of the blue wires is broken or not connected at the control. Hope this helped Tim

You may need to replace the timer, but watch the video below and it will walk you thru the troubleshooting process. The timer not moving in the "auto sense" mode maybe due to a bad thermostat. Here is a link to the timer in case you need it.

My whirlpool dryer heat does not stay on. when i first start it , its hot then the heat turns off. it continues going with no heat


With the limited information you gave I will assume this is a gas dryer that the flame starts for a minute or so and then shuts off. This problem is going to be your safety valve coils...basically they get old and over time of heating then cooling develop a short when they heat up...It may appear the gas lights to start but then goes out until the safety valve coils cool back down. Here is a picture of the coils 57d5263.jpgThis The coils are mounted to the gas safety valve, This should solve your problem. Hope this helps, Please feel free to comment again if you have any further questions or concerns. Good Luck! Mike

Auto sensing does not work. dryer continues to run


Inside the drum under the filter is 2 long skinny strips of metal mounted in plastic. Clean then sensors up with alcohol. They get goop on them from soap and fab softener. I have a manual here that feature auto sensing circuits and photos CLICK HERE FOR THE MANUAL
