Check the Timer Switch...normally this controls the running of the Dryer.

Maytag dryer stops after few minutes


ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

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.

DRYER WILL NOT SHUT OFF ON AUTOMATIC SETTING


Most of the time when a dryer won't shut of in automatic, it is because the sensors inside the drum are bad and cannot sense when the clothes are dry. If your dryer works good on a timed dry then is probably the moisture sensors.

Clean the sensors ... they are likely coated with something. Alternatively, the sensors could have become disconnected during the move. Remove the back and check this out. Use a 5/16 nut driver - not a screw driver - youwill save yourself a bunckof grief.

It will not automatically turn off when running, the knob does not turn while running.


Miss Stephanie you must replace the timer.
If you have a timed dry setting. Run timed dry. If it does not shut off timer is bad.
If it does shut off you have a sensor problem.
