Hi.

If the dryer gets hot , but the cycle does not advance or stop, then the thermostat is not opening the circuit when the limit temperature is reached.

This dryers have two thermostats, both located in the heating unit. One is the safety thermostat that blows at 175F, and the other is the Warm thermostat, that cut off after 40C, allowing the cycle to advance.

The warm thermostat must be tested and eventually replaced.

Here the part. Call the seller to ensure you purchase the thermostat that best fit your model (they both mount, but temperature setting is different).

Timer not working....turn knob to 30 minutes and it stays on forever! Knob never moves from 30 mins....please help!


Most likely the timer motor or the main thermostat is bad (some dryers hold the timer off until the thermostat says the dryer is warmed up). I assume you have adequate heat since you do not mention any problem with the clothes not drying in the usual time.

Usually there is a wiring diagram hidden inside the control panel or posted inside the back panel. If you can read it, you can figure out whether a thermostat controls the timer motor. (I've never had to work on a Whirlpool dryer control problem, so I can't tell you.)

The timer keeps readjusting while drying clothes, will say there is 45 minutes left and clothes are perfectly dry, this could be a fire hazard if left unattended.


you will need to clean the vent tube/internal duct work:

The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature then the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

if the vent/duct work is clogged then 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.

I hope this helps here is a website on how to remove cabinet:

Amana model LGA30AW automatic setting doesn't shut the dryer off


You can make adjustments to your Automatic Cycles by adjusting the Factory Dryness Level:
Changing the Automatic Cycle settings to increase or decrease drying time:
If all your loads on all Automatic Cycles are consistently less dry or more dry than you would like, you may change the default settings to increase or decrease the default dryness
level.

Your automatic drying settings can be adjusted to adapt to different installations, environmental conditions, or personal preference. This change is retained and will affect all of your
Automatic Cycles, not just the current cycle/load. There are 5 drying settings, which are displayed using the time display:
0 Much wetter clothes, 30% less drying time.
1 Slightly wetter clothes, 15% less drying time.
2 Factory preset dryness level.
3 Slightly drier clothes, 15% more drying time.
4 Much drier clothes, 30% more drying time.
TO CHANGE THE DRYING SETTINGS: NOTE: The settings cannot be changed while the dryer is running or paused. The dryer must be in standby mode (power is off) to adjust the default settings.
  1. Before starting a cycle, touch and hold DRYNESS for 6 seconds.
  2. Touch DRYNESS to select the dryness level shown in the time display: 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4.
  3. Touch START/PAUSE to save the new dryness level setting.

I have a Frigidaire Dryer model GLER331AS1 and one day it was all lite up with heat I had to manually turn it off, after that it will run but it wont turn off if it's not on the minutes drying time it just...


hi Gwen. I can help you.
If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.

Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:


  • The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.

  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's 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 thermostat 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 the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

I repaired my broken fan belt with a drop of super glue - there is virtually no load on the belt and it now works perfectly again. A 30 sec quick fix.

Condensation is forming on the walls when I use my clothes dryer


Simpson may have a kit available for accomplishing this. Also, your dryer may have several optional ways of venting.

Simpson Sirocco 350 Dryer not heating


there is an oval cover on the back of the dryer. Remove this cover and you will probably find a broken fan belt. A replacement costs about $20 Aus.

NOTE: If you have been using the dryer for a while in this condition there will certainly be moisture inside the dryer. Replace the belt and leave the dryer for a few days to dry itself out (motor and electricals) before firing it up.
