HI. the Control Board is defective, There are two logic chips that are responsible for initiating the proper selected drying cycle. if these chips are damaged, it will prevent the unit from automatically shutting down. replacing this damaged board will fix this issue.

Why do the Automatic cycles on my Whirlpool Duet Electric Dryer not always work?


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.

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

The drum on my kenmore 70 series dryer won't turn and the dryer won't get heat up either. The drum will start to turn if we take the lid off and manually push it but not automatically


The dryer will not heat till the motor starts . If the dryer makes a hum when you activate the start switch' but won't start, then either the motor switch is bad or full of lint. If there is no hum then the start switch may be bad.

My ge automatic dryer model ddp 1275 c willnt


Sounds like motor trying to start. Simplest answer is article of clothing caught in the blower wheel and thus keeping motor from turning. Second is motor switch mounted to motor is bad. Not all dryers replace motor switch separately from the motor. Third, is the motor which contains a new centrifugal start switch with it.

Dryer won't turn off when in automatic cycle.


Typicall there is a moisture sensor or equivalent that tells the dryer in automatic mode to stop (and not bake your clothes). Sound to me this sensor is defective.
