Why does my gas dryer heat keep shutting off?


The solenoid coils on the dryer are acting up. This is a common problem. They work a little then heat up and short out. Easy fix I did some videos:

The dryer will not shut off automatically. It would run forever if I let it. It also takes a very long time to dry the clothes. As if it's not heating them properly.


Hi there,

Well first of all you may try running the dryer with the vent hose removed. A slow vent will cause what you're describing. Then you'll need to look at the cycling thermostat. That is the part that tells the timer to advance. It sends a signal to the timer when the proper temp is achieved in the drum. Means when the element cycles off the timer motor moves a little bit. When it cools down and the element comes back on the timer stops. This action takes place when you're using one of the auto cycles.
If you have a slow vent it can cause the high limit thermostat to do the cycling. Please let us know for further help or information.....

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Hotpoint nvl333gyoww gas dryer's timer stopped working and ran for an extended length of time (about a day). After looking over the dryer, i noticed that during the no heat cycle the timer would work. So...


the timer : if you use time dry the timer should always move and complete the cycle. if you use auto dry the timer uses a sensor to tell the timer to move. If your not getting any heat your sensor might not tell the timer to move.

So lets start with the no heat problem. First make sure your Vent is clear or just disconnect the vent and put a pair of womans stocking over the end to keep the dust down, This will ensure you do not have a blocked vent. ((( If you have a blocked vent on a gas dryer the safty sensor will shut off the gas valve and you will only get a little bit of heat))) Now try the dryer for small load, ((( if this solved your problem then you have a cloged vent )))

If this did not solve your problem then the coils on your gas valve in the dryer are probably bad.

We just finished a load in the dryer and it worked fine. When we went to start another load it wouldn't start. The circuit works, it is plugged in, and the door is shut


Are your lint traps clean? Also, your vent hose going out the back of the dryer sometimes gets clogged up, and this will shut down your dryer until it is cleaned out. Try this, and if it still doesn't work - try shutting the dryer's circuit breaker off (or if its easier to unplug the dryer), and then back on again. This will reset the breaker, and then you can try running your dryer again. In fact, you can do the circuit breaker step first. If this doesn't work, then clean the lint trap, vent, etc. - and then return to the circuit breaker step. I hope this works for you. If not, let me know. I'll check back with you in a little bit. Good Luck!  Jim

I have a similar problem. But I will provide a little bit of history first. My dryer just doesn't get hot enough (approx 100 degrees just prior to the exhaust vent). Three years ago, I had the same...


If the gas cycles on and off I do not think the coils are a problem.  Sounds like the flame sensor is not working correctly.  The flame sensor keeps the gas valve open after the ignitor shuts off.  Then the temperature sensor shuts off the gas when temperature limit is reached.  When the dryer cools down the gas cycle starts again (usually much more than 30 seconds).

Kenmore 68702 electric dryer heat doesnt shut off


If the dryer completes the cycle bit does not shut off, then you have to replace the timer control assembly.

If instead the dryer hangs at the middle of the cycle and does not advance, check the thermostate.

If the dryer does not heath and does not advance, then check the heating element, the thermostat and the fan.

Roper dryer res7745pq is taking 2 cycles to dry and vent is clean?


check if the thermostats in rear part of dryer are covered with lint. take power off to dryer and remove back panel you will see 2 or 3 thermostats if there is a lot of lint around them carefully remove lint. if that doesn't solve problem make sure clothes are coming out of washer spun dry enough .. check lint screen on dryer. is the vent clear all the way outside ?, in winter little critters like to set up housekeeping in vents where the temperature warms them up. you can also check if heat is cycling open door to dryer and press the door button, start dryer and observe heater , it will come on then shut down and it should come back on in a minute or two, if it doesn't come back on the cycling thermostat may be at fault

My dryer keeps shutting off, it is a Roper.


The motor is getting hot and shuuting down on overload. Checak see it the drum turns freely. If it does then motor replacement is imminent.To get int the dryer you yank out the filter first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing on top.Then use a putty knife to pop the top. Remove the screws holding the front panel on. VERY IMPORTANT! Raise the front up an inch before pulling forward or the panel clips will break! Some models have a panel on bottom. If they do then this panel must come off first. Then you remove the door springs and back off the screws holding down the bottom of the door panel. Then pop the top and remove the screws on top to get the panel out of your way. Get the idler loose and remove the drum. Oil the wheels and idler and check the drum glides. Clean out the dryer. Sometimes you can oil the motor but it is tricky. Cheaper than a new motor though. Since yours does run a little it is a prime candidate for a little R&R. Drill out the endbells with an 8th inch drill bit. Careful not to hit the shaft. The manufacturer does not supply oil orts so you must make some. Get some high temp resistant HVAC zoomoil and refill the cotton wells on both sides. Work the motor till it turns freely. Good luck.

Whirlpool Dryer LGR7646EQ3 - Auto Dry is not working


I went over the part list and I didnt see a sensor, if it is there it will be two silver wire bars either on the back bulk head or at front right just below the door, possibly your timer has gone south too.
The only item I saw was a dryer cycling thermostat that shuts off heat when a certain temp is reached, here is a link;
