Washer will not shut off.


sounds like the final phase is not being registered on the timer or the computer chip may need to have a service tech diagnose but it isn't a complex problem just an annoying one, the final phase is a cool down cycle and also you may need to see if you have the settings for cotton clothes, the dryer will tumble them so as not to let them wrinkle. hope this helps

The selector knob on my Whirlpool LER4634JQ1 does not move, so the dryer will not turn off automatically and no "end of cycle" buzzer sounds. Do I simply replace the timer?


Your timer most likely does need to be replaced. The timer has a small motor that causes it to rotate during the cycle and those can go bad causing the timer to not advance. Unfortunately, you cannot get just that timer motor anymore. Hope this helps!

GE dryer model DDE8200GALAD was working fine. After removing a load and trying to dry another, after inserting the load and shutting the door when you turn the timer to start it before pushing the start...


If you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.

Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.

I push the start button and nothing happens


Turn your power off and reach inside the drum and rotate the drum 1/4-1/2 turn, turn the power back on and try pushing the start button again.
Sometimes motors get dead spots in them and this helps to move it from the dead spot.
If that doesn't solve the problem try to listen very closely and see if you can hear the motor running...if it is then the problem is a broken belt.
Otherwise could be your timer switch faulty, or the start switch faulty.
I hope this helps
