Question about Dryers

Timer no longer works.

Is it worth trying to replace a timer on a 15 year old Maytag LDE model? It no longer works in AUTO mode or Timer. Set it to any of the positions and it still heats up and runs but does not time or auto dry.

Maytag Dryer MDE6400AYW. Dries clothing but does not shut off in Auto Mode. Tried Timer mode but the knob does not advance on its own and dryer does not shut off in that mode either. Replace Timer?


Some of them timer can be oiled, (just a little zoom oil no wd-40) if it is real hard to turn, the knob can become cracked and the timer motor itself it may not have enough ump to move the gears and sometimes oiling the timer and moving it around many times loosens em up.

My ge model 15117 heavy duty timer will not go off in the auto mode. I changed it from auto to off to turn my pump on and then went back to auto and now did not turn off when timer expired


I cannot repair defective timers, and there are complaints about this timer's MODE button.
Most people complain they can't get mode to set.
Avoid the MODE button after programming timer.
Reset the timer by pushing CLOCK PROG MODE buttons. Then re-program the timer per instructions, and then press CLOCK button to exit programming and timer is in Auto mode and ready to work.
No need to press MODE after programming timer.
Typically, this timer has limited 1 year warranty.

15117 is not heavy duty timer. Both outlets combined are rated 1000 watts incandescent and 1/4 HP. Check nameplate on your pump for HP rating.

For limited-lifetime-warranty timer, rated 1/3 HP, choose Intermatic HB800RCL 2-outlet timer.
Cost twice as much as GE 15117.
For 1HP outdoor pumps choose Intermatic P1121

Even though the times are all set correctly, and it is on AUTO mode, the timer automatically turns itself to OFF after one cycle. So say i have the timer set from 1-1:15 and from 2-2:15, it always goes...


look at your manual, and then add a comment with brand and model number of timer.
or
Describe timer in detail and I will find a manual that matches your product and read it alongside you.

I test timers, some arrive defective, some go bad after a few months, most have 1 year limited warranty. Some timers suggest resetting timer when problems occur. Some timers have reset button, other timers have to be unplugged, other timers require you to hold on-off button while pushing reset button.

I have a GE Heavy Duty Digital Timer product # 15117. It also says it is a Jasco Product. I am having a problem getting the clock function to work. I can set the time yet I do know see where there is an...


My auto function on my GE outdoor timer didn't work orginally. So, I programmed the "on" time to be 5 minutes from the current time (10:15 p.m.), and the "off" time to be the time I wanted (10:30 p.m.). Then I put it on automatic and waited for 10:15 p.m. to arrive. It turned on. Then, I set the "on" time to 5:30 p.m. and it works fine now. Apparently, it has to cycle through the "on" time in order to activate the auto function.

Good day,
If you need to wedge the timer to get a normal cycle, then the timer has gone out. Suggest you replace it along with a new knob, spring and clip. The parts house will point out how to install the knob. Was/is a really good washer.

Dryer not turning off when clothes are dry (model LDE 400ACL)


Normally if you have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry, it will do it with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a "pre-set" temperature.
When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. If there is 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 termostat 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 this problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork and make sure the vent is not compressed or kinked. If that doesn't work, then your thermostat, moisture sensor or timer could be the culprit.

Dryer element stays warm


If it heats w/ the timer in off position whenever plugged in the the element is shorting to ground, its most likely due to either a broken coil or a cracked insulator. If heating w/ timer set for drying but motor is not running, the heat circuit thru the centrifugal/start switch on the motor is stuck closed.

Maytag model


You really need a volt / ohm meter to check for Continuity & VoltsIts well worth the investment... $15.00 bucks give or take a few

 

I would check to see if you have 220v to back of dryer where the cord mounts to dryer,

 

If dryer is getting only 1 leg 110 volts instead of the 220 will it not heat.

 

Check themostates & heater for Continuity... Most models, Now have a.. Hi-limit fuses that need to be checked for Continuity they have to be replaced
