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.

We have an LG electric dryer Model number DLE2050W and when I turn it on it starts and runs but after awhile the illuminated board goes black,but the dryer continues to run. But it will not shut off.


I have an educated guess for you. A part of each control of a washer and a dryer is a little electric "clock". Those things can fail. I sounds like you may have a timer clock that is sticking and not advancing.
These " clocks" are a part of the times, and are not sold separately.
One way to possible tell would be to put your ear to the area of the control panel where the timer is and listen. Most of those "clocks" tick, and you can often hear them, or you can watch the dial, and it should advance with a click every so often.
Be blessed.

I have a maytag lse7800acw stack on with some years on it which always ran like new until the dryer completely lost power the timer dial won't even tick when you turn it to start it


First, have you check to see if one of the breakers have been thrown?
Second, if the breakers are good, check the "thermal cutoff" for continuity. It is located on the blower housing. Here is the part to order in case it is bad.
Post back your results.

Will not start but its making a ticking sound


Electric or gas dryer?
Depending on where the ticking sound is coming from, without more specific information, many dryers use a timer within their dial for timed drying. If the switches are malfunctioning, the ticking of the "timer" can still continue.
If you can hear a whirring sound, which would be the motor, then it may be the drive belt. If this is the case, then the ticking of the timer may be more noticeable due to it being quieter without the spinning drum.

If you have a gas dryer and the ticking is from below, then it may be the ignitor that's faulty. However, that shouldn't cause your dryer not to turn on. It that case the dryer would spin, but not get warm.
With more information, I may be of better assistance.

Can you turn drum by hand? If so you probably need a motor.
