The only light that is working appears to be the power button, which is useless. I have to open the door to get it to stop.


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

The selector knob on my Whirlpool LER4634JQ1 does not move, so the dryer will not turn off automatically and no "end of cycle" buzzer sounds. Do I simply replace the timer?


Your timer most likely does need to be replaced. The timer has a small motor that causes it to rotate during the cycle and those can go bad causing the timer to not advance. Unfortunately, you cannot get just that timer motor anymore. Hope this helps!

Maytag Neptune Electric Clothe Dryer Model MDE6700AZW Problem: Drum will not turn, no heat produced. When I start the cycle, there is one audible *click* sound and then nothing: no heat and no tumble....


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Dryer drum stopped rotating, dryer blower continues to work.


The belt probably broke, and coincidentally happened while drying the shoes. The belt is easy to replace. Open the back and you'll probably see the belt laying on the bottom

I have a Kenmore 80 series and the motor is not running but the heating coil comes on, what can be the problem? I have traced all wires and they appear to be OK


You could have a faulty motor, or possibly a faulty timer switch.
Try this:
Unplug the dryer, reach inside and try to rotate the drum 1/4-1/2 turn.
Plug the dryer back in and push the start button and see if it starts to rotate.
Sometimes motors get dead zones in them and this will help rotate the motor out of the dead zone.
If this does not solve the problem then the thing I would check is the motor.
Again unplug your dryer from the electric. Remove the box on top of the dryer that contains the timer switch, start switch, etc.
Be real careful not to knock any wires loose off of the timer switch.
Remove the top of the dryer, then remove the front of the dryer to expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt to expose the idler arm with pulley and motor. Now is a good time to check the condition of the belt and the drum rollers also. I will suggest that you oil the drum rollers at the shaft with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. This will save a problem of a squeaky roller in the future. If the drum rollers have flat spots on them they will have to be replaced.
Then check your motor.
Note: Make sure you note how the belt route is, this will come in handy when you go to put everything back together.
If the motor checks out ok, then I would think it is the timer switch, you will have to replace the timer switch as they are not repairable.
I will include a couple of websites that have parts and live chat assistance:

Good Luck,
I hope this helps.

Dryer drum won't rotate


if there is no air coming out of your vent on back of dryer then it would be likely your motor has gone out.

Extremely low drum heat but setting is on HIGH.


Electric (Kenmore - 60931) dryer takes forever (several cycles) lately to dry clothes set on high heat (actual heat in tub feels low though). There are no obstructions in the venting and the 240 volt connection is fine. The timer rotates the dial (timer motor working). Help!!!
