While the dryer is turning slowly advance the timer knob to the end of the cycle. The dryer should stop. It sounds as if the timer motor has died or is not being powered for some reason and is not advancing the timer.

SOURCE: Dryer knob sticks in one spot- won't move

 Door switch / Door switch actuator leverThe dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

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.

The timer knob is no longer moving when drying - so the dryer never shuts off. Do I need to replace the whole timer

Dryer timer knob


This control could be the problem IF the blower wheel ain't stripped, the dryer is clean, and the duct work is free of air restrictions.It is located on the blower housing next to the fuse.ec8cbee.jpg

I have a maytag dryer and when you start it the timer doesn't move - it will run for hours unless you stop it. now when you pull the knob to start it doesn't respond


Sounds like the problem is in your timer contacts, in which case you would have to replace your timer. A no heat scenario on auto dry could also cause a dryer to run continuously.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Timer runs continuously - Does not stop at all


There should be a timer motor on the timer. That is most likely burnt out and will cause the timer to not shut down. Just replace the timer and that will solve the problem

Maytag dryer PYE3300AYW Continuously runs


jefo, it sounds to me like your timer is not advancing. Does it move at all or stay in place? In what you are saying it will stop when you turn it to off, I would think it could be the timer that is the problem. Part # 53-1810.
