Is there power to the Dryer? If so then Dryer most likely shut off due to a air flow blockage. This could be a clogged Lint Filter, or a Clogged Air Duct Exhaust (the hose that goes from your Dryer to the outsideof your house). If there is no air flow over the Heating Element the Heating Element will OVERHEAT and the Thermal Safety Fuse will Open cutting off the power. Some Thermals will re-set after cooling down. Others have to be replaced.

    Forgot to mention the most important component, The Blower! The Blower must be operating in order to circulate the air. If the Blower is not operating when power is restored, then do not run until Blower function is restored.

What does it mean when a dryer starts to tick like a clock


the ticking sound you hear is the timer motor.this is normal on timed dry.on auto dry you should only hear it when the heater is turned off.if the dryer shuts off and will not start after 20 to30 min. the motor has over heated and stopped to prevent over heating.venting is the no.1 cause of this.the vent system needs to be checked first.if it is a magic chef,admiral,or maytag under a few years the part below the lint screen needs to have all that lint removed every 6mo.

Stop running,no door light or motor running.


Check panel for tripped breaker. Check with a volt meter that you have 2 legs of 125v to back of dryer. See youtube for demonstration of testing. Can you hear the timer run? It is pretty quiet, but is a ticking noise.

Dryer stopped working, sounds like timer still running


I suspect it is the thermal fuse. Seen here. You will need to determine what caused it to blow. on these machines the blower wheel is notorious for getting loose and causing the element to over heat. This makes the heating element shut down faster and takes a long time to dry the clothes. 7fc125e.jpg

I've got a Magic Chef dryer that will not start. But power is getting to it, I can hear the timer clicking...what should be the first thing I check?


The door switch must be checked for continuity. The thermal overload fuse near the heating element must be checked for continuity. If either has no continuity it is a bad part and must be replaced.

My magic chef dryer heats but will not blow air


A dryer fan is usually directly connected to the motor. If you hear the motor running, maybe the fan broke off, or the duct is really clogged.
