Maybe. Heat actuated switch should be mounted on metal pipe of exhaust. You need to take front panel off to get to it. If you take the switch off, you can get a good unit to "click" by heating it gently with a match or lighter. The switch should be "closed" when cold. Probably, just replace it.

I have Samsung gas dryer model DV410. no heat, replaced two thermal fuse and hi low limit. Now it only works with timed cycle mode. the rest mode, it runs only for least the 5 minutes and shut off.


timed cycle mean dryer not on sensor dry mode. check wire connection on moisture sensor bars (i think you forget to put 2 wire connector put together). when you use other cycle dryer use moisture sensor to dry cloths so sensor not working dryer will stop in 5 minutes or so because dryer think there are no wet cloths to dry. hope this help you.

Gas dryer does not dry in "timed Dry" setting


In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

I have an LG DLE0442W and its having some problems. Well first to turn it on you have to hold down the power button or the lights will just flicker and it went turn on. When you hold it down it turns on no...


I suspect two issues
1. Need new power button. Easy fix. Check out repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com for how to videos and parts.
2. Your sensor strips in dry my have either lint under them or dryer sheet residue on them throwing off the moisture sensor reading and shutting down dryer early.

Dryer not heating or turning off


It can be multiple problems. First are you using it on sensor dry or timed dry? If it is timed try, it's possible your timer is not advancing. If you are using sensor dry it could be your sensor.

To test the timer, check for continuity across the timer. If it is open, replace the timer.

To test sensor, run the dryer on sensor with nothing in it, if the timer advances quickly, the sensor is not the issue. If it does not advnace, it could be the sensor.

The no heat issue; check to make sure you don't have a blockage in the venting or in the dryer. If there is no blockage, check your element. To check if the element is not heating up, check for continuity through the sensor.

Hope that helps.

Maytag Neptune Dryer-stopped heating


first, check the exhaust, make sure every inch of it is clean on the inside. if there is any blockage, the heat will build up in the exhaust and a sensor will shut down the heating element.
