    Also, the dryer could sit for an extended period of time and then it would work perfect again. Then out of blue, stops heating again. It has done this off and on and now has quit heating all together.

Timer won't stop after cycle finished.


Dryer will not shut off:

The timer: Located in the control console of the dryer the timer consists of a small motor connected to a series of gears that rotate cams, which turn electric contacts off and on inside the timer. The timer contacts control the dryer motor as well as the heat circuit and the timer motor itself. A defective timer motor or a defect in the timer's electrical contacts can cause the timer motor to fail and the timer will need to be replaced. The contacts can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. This test should only be made when the dryer is unplugged. Another test u can do is observe by eyesight and see does the timer advance or is it stuck on one cycle?


1. On gas and electric dryers that have an "Auto Dry" cycle, the cycling thermostat is often used to advance the timer as well regulate the drum temperature. Essentially, thermostat will alternately turn on the heat source or the timer motor when the temperature has been satisfied. To check this thermostat, you will have to check for power to the timer motor with a multi-meter, during a cycle. This is a live voltage test and caution should be used.

2. Some dryers will use a cool down thermostat to tumble the clothes without heat, at the end of the dry cycle. Power is routed through this thermostat to the drive motor to keep it running until the drum temperature has dropped to a specific temperature. If this thermostat fails it can cause the drum to turn indefinitely or until the door is opened. You can check the thermostat for continuity with a multi-meter. This test should only be made with the power removed from the dryer.

Lastly check the moister sensor for OHMS according to ur schematic as it must show a certain amount of ohms as per ur unit. When unit has been on short while

Maytag dryer stops running after 10-15 seconds.


Check the exhaust vent in the dryer and the one going outside, sounds like it's plugged. If it's plugged the dryer will get hot real quick and shut off so it doesn't catch fire...

the timer will not move if there's no heat.when the dryer starts to heat and then shuts off then the timer will move when the heat starts again the timer stops.you need to send the model number is it gas or electric?you might need to clean out the dryer and popped the thermal fuse from the dryer running to hot or you have a bad heating element or ignitor,you need to get in there and start checking parts to see why you have no heat.

Have you checked the belt? That's generally the problem when a dryer stops spinning.

Kenmore Dryer 90 Series will start but suddenly stop...


Hello , Sounds like your motor is over heating , it will run until the sensor shuts it down from getting to hot , it is most likley because the motor is covered in lint and needs cleaned. Hope that helps.
