Dryer wont stop buzzing


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Timer
The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is bad and need replaced. If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. replace the heating elements

Dryer timer doesnt advance.


If the timer does not advance even on the time dry cycle then you have a bad timer motor. You would need to replace the timer to rectify the problem. Hope this helps _MJ_

Hotpointdryer timer problem


There are two coils in the heating element, and if one burns out, the timer will not advance in automatic dry. The timer should still advance when using manual (or timed) dry.

Won't heat, won't advance on auto, won't shut off on timed. air only fine


I suspect you have a timer motor problem. My experience has been in most cases you cannot buy just the timer moter, you need to purchase the entire timer....at costly expense. If you can get your ear near the timer while running, first listen to hear the motor. Usually when the motor is going to quit, it becomes fairly noisy. In any case, the timer should advance,

Timer does not advance, dryer keeps running.


in auto dry the timer motor receives voltage to advance by way of the cycling thermostat.[each time the thermostat opens to stop the heat the switch in the thermo then changes that voltage up to the timer and it will advance timer motor until it closes again for heat and this continues till clothes are dry]so as long as timer is receiving that voltage and not advancing then i agree its the timer.other wise it could be a failing/intermident cycling thermostat.a thought.in timed dry the timer motor receives constant voltage.so if never stalls in timed dry it may be a clue that the timer is ok. i hope this helps you understand whats going on. God bless ,tom

My Amana Model NDG5800AWW dryer has ceased to dry clothes dependably. The Only setting that still sort of works is HIGH timed drying, and this heats up to what used to be the "delicate" setting....


if you are using the auto dry setting and the dryer is still running after 5 hours you either have a timer issue or a thermostat problem.

The timer is driven by a motor, if the timer motor is bad the timer wont time out.

in the auto dry cycle the thermostat has to cycle off and on which then sends power to the timer again advancing the timer.

set the timer in a timed dry cycle for say ten minutes, if the timer advances and turns off then you know the timer works. if it doesnt advance you have a timer motor issue,

if the problem is the auto cycle, you could replace the thermostat, about $20 american. however a clock timer would be cheaper.

Based on how old is your machine and do you want to stick a timer in it after already paying the service man is up to you.

A basic bath towel load should be dry in about 50 minutes, this varies on how good your seals are and how long a vent you are running, if the dryer vent was plugged you already have shortened the life of your heating element.
