HI. the timer control module is experiencing difficulties. the advancement of the timer dial is crucial, and it must rotate in order to initiate proper cycle sequence. The timer motor is the culprit in this case, and the timer will need to be replaced.

Replacing the timer will fix this issue.

Dryer does not dry clothes completely


If your machine is taking that long to dry. You either have a clogged vent to the outside or your gas valve coils are bad. You can check to see if it is your vent by disconnecting it for one cycle. If the unit drys in time then clean your vent. Click Here to see what a clogged vent can do. Click here to see gas valve coils.

Our dryer works but it takes about two full cycles at 60 minutes each on high to dry the clothes


Sounds like the vent is plugged. Disconnect the vent hose from the vent and test again. If it drys normally your vent is plugged and will need to be cleaned.

The dryer takes three hours to dry a large load. It is almost one year old and it seems to take longer than it used to and the clothes don't actually get that hot anymore


is your dryer getting hot if so disconnect your dryer vent and run a normal load and if it drys that load in a normal ammount of time it is your vent pipe in the wall clogged

Dryer runs but on Automatic Perm Press the dial doesn't move and it literally is drying 8+ hours later. What should I do?


If its electric sounds like electric heater coils need replaced. Also check to see the vent hose isn't clogged with lint. That will restrict the air flow hence longer dry time.

Still drys but not as fast as it once did


Hello.

You have one of two problems with your unit.

1. The vent hose is kinked behind the unit and restricting air flow from the dryer.

2. The vent going outside is clogged somewhere between the wall and the outside.

Once you fix either of these two problems the dryer will work good again.

It takes usually 3 complete cycles to dry an average load of clothes.


try taking the vent hose off your dryer and running it through a cycle with it off...if it drys ok then you have a clog somewhere in your venting.

Dryer drys but the timer dial does not turn to stop automatic


Hi, You will need to change the timer. The timer motor has gone bad. You can test it by removing the back cover on the control panel and test the two wires going to the timer motor to see if it is getting 120V. If it is getting voltage, it should turn.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Dryer will not turn off


If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.

Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:

  • The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.

  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)

  • The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

I have whirlpool gold ultimate care 2 the dryer is heating but not getting real hot


You may be having a venting issue, disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer,if it drys normally then you have a clog in the vent line too the outside, if still takes too long too dry you may have a bad operating thermostat on the blower housing.
