Stops during cycle

I think I have a timer problem. dryer will only turn on in one cycle..but will turn back off a fter a minute or sometimes longer. i move the timer knob a little and push start and it will work again. it advances fine when it stays on...but i have to move timer knob quite often to get it to continue working.

Maybe. Will the unit restart in the same position or do you have to move it? If it will work in the same position and all you're doing is waiting for a bit of cooldown...it could be a defective high limit switch that is resetting. If it will restart only after you move the timer, then change out the timer. This is a bit of a mystery since timers generally don't have 'dead spots'...they are designed differently than that.

Washer stops during normal wash cycle for a minute or more, and then continues. Would replacing the timer fix it?


If it actually goes on and finishes the cycle and that really bothers you replace it. If not leave it alone and allow a little more time to complete its cycle. The lid switch only keeps the spin cycle from going with the top open.

Whirlpool dryer shuts off at the end of cycle, but timer continues to tick. It ticks through the next cycle and stops ticking at that cycles off?


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is faulty replace it If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. Replace it.

I have a whirlpool dryer, model number lgt6634dq0. The timmer does not stop after the drying cycle has ended. My guest it might be the timer. After the dryer has finished it's cycle I can hear the timer...


HI. The timer will be the culprit here. The timer motor is damaged, and the cogs seem to be worn, as well. I recommend replacing this failed timer mechanism. Once replaced, the unit will operate correctly.

Agitator no longer moving


sounds like you may have burned out the lid switch. if it is not working the timer thinks the lid is not closed and will not advance.

Dryer will not turn off aafter it's 40 minute cycle.it will start over with 1 hour 22 minute cycle


You should check your thermostats, they can cause this problem.
Look for the air tube that goes from the blower to the drum, this is where the thermostats are normally located and the heating coil is normally located there also.
Hope this helps

Washer model LAT9824AAE will stop during the wash cycle but timer still runs thru cycle. Sometimes fills and then will not agitate if you fiddle with the timer knob pushing side to side it will run is it...


Timer is definately faulty. the cam is plastic and eventually wears. This in turn creates excessive movement internally which stops the contacts from activating correctly. Replace it.

Dryer starts drying and thinks clothes are dry, but they aren't


Check the timer, and the sensor. Sounds like it is having a problem with the timer or sensor no noticing that the clothes are still wet. Please rate if satisfied. Thank you

Electric dryer intermittently doesn't heat


If your dryer has a timer with quick connects which easily plug into it then you can possibly fix this problem. Yank both connects off the timer and remove the timer. Take the 2 motor screws off and remove the plate carefully. Clean the contacts on each leaf switch with a file. Put it back and retry. Sounds difficult but it isn't. Remember only the timer with the 2 quick connects.
