Make sure the door does not come open while running.

If it turns off only during the auto-drying cycle, the moisture sensor may have failed.

If it turns off during the timed cycle, the operating thermostat has most likely failed and the high limit thermostat turns the machine off when it gets too hot. After the machine cools down, it will start until it heats up and turns off again.

Maytag dryer se1000 runs for 15 minutes then shuts off


Clean your sensors if you have them. They might have junk on them that could be forming a moisture barrier preventing the sensors from feeling the wetness of them clothes. The dryer may think them clothes is dry because it cannot sense wetness.

Amana electric dryer timer doesn't advance during


If this is one of the electronic models: Clean the sensor strips located inside the drying area. As wet clothes rub against these the control monitors the resistance changes and knows the clothes are still wet therefore it continues to operate. When buildup from dryer sheets and fab softener get on them strips a barrier is formed that repels dampness. Therefore the control does not know the clothes are wet and goes to the end thinking all is Kosher. Clean them sensor strips with Windex and party on!

The dryer turns on but isn't warming up so clothes are not drying.


Look for goop on the dryer sensing bars. get some windex and clean them . The moisture sensing bars send back resistance readings to the control. No moisture sensed and the control thank they ain't no wetness in them clothes, it goes for cooldown and shuts down with wet clothes.
thats one scenaio. if that don't fix it we will go to the next step. let me know

Dryer door opens before cycle is finished


The clip on the door is just been used to much, using a small flat head, (if the clip is metal only) you can twist and expand the eye of the clip, if it's plastic and looped you can stick toothpicks and use em as shims to expand the hole. usually the eye has been crimped shut not letting the clamps grab and the wet clothes knock the door open shutting the dryer off. Usually when you got a date or big job promo soon and you were not there to notice the flaw and you find your clothes still soaked ten minutes from the time you were gonna go. LOL

Your moisture sensing bars may have junk on them. The way your machine detects drynesss ir with we clothes.
As them wet clothes rub them bars they short out the board and that way it knows them clothes need a bit more time.
If thm bars get a bit of softener oem and glaze over the bars then wetness won;t be detected no more and the control won't know them thangs is wet or dry and most likely declare a No Joy.

Dirty moisture sensing strips? Have you tried cleaning them with windex?e03f8f0.jpg

Number 34 these measure resistance by picking up wetness from the clothes. Dryer sheets can coat these with a non penatrable film which fools the brain into thinking them clothes is dry so it moves towards the cooldown mode and shuts off with wet clothes. Clean them sensor strips real good and party on!

NO HEAT WHEN CLOTHES ARE ADDED


Check to see if vent hose is not restricted. If it goes up inside wall, it could have lint clogging it. Most dryers regulate heat with air flow. Wet clothes can restrict flow even more if vent is clogged or pinched. Air flow is crucial to heat cycle. If the vent is resrticted, heat will rise quickly, but not cool down fast enough to allow heat thermostat to cool down and turn on heating element again. It may seem hot inside dryer but if no air flow it will increase dry time or not dry them at all before timer shuts off. If vent goes up inside wall, buy a small chimney brush and try cleaning out vent from attic if you can.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II does not completely drain.


Mine will do this if clothes are left in it for a long period of time. The pump will not drain all water out because the will dry out the seals if they do. Your wet clothes dripped in the tub raising the water level to the bottom of the drum and that is why you have wet clothes. Remove clothes as soon as they are done, use cycle signal to avoid this.
