My dryer door is loose and won't shut right.

You take a Phillips screwdriver to the hinges that hold it to the body of the dryer and turn the screwdriver clockwise until you can't turn it anymore. Holding the door up in the level position it should be in while doing will allow it to tighten properly.

The dryer does not pass 6 min mark and does not shut off. How would I test a humidity sensor? Thank you for help.

A dryer moisture sensor can stop working without notice, until you notice your clothes being over dried or still wet at the end of the cycle. It is a good practice to test the dryer moisture sensor periodically. There are two types of moisture-detecting sensors for dryers. Once you understand how they work you will see how to test each one.
1. Sensor BarThese sensors contain digits that protrude outwardly. They work on an electrical current and the moisture from the clothing.
The first step to test is to place completely dry clothes in the dryer and turn on the dryer; it should run for a few moments and then shut down right away.
Secondly, place damp clothes into the dryer, turn on the dryer and watch the timer. As the clothes begin to dry the timer will move and shut off.
2. ThermostatThe timer is regulated by the thermostat. The thermostat rests in a closed position. To test this type of moisture sensor, place damp clothes in the dryer. Watch the timer; as the clothes begin to dry, the thermostat should open and the timer will move forward ,eventually shutting off.

Dryer won't heat up and light bulb turns on then off when door is opened.

Does the drum spin when you shut the door and start the dryer if so it wouldn't be a bad door switch. 1st. thing I would check would be the igniter with front kick panel off dryer it's located at the bottom right hand outer side of drum in the burner duct. here's how you check it with door shut start dryer and look for a orange glow from the igniter if no glow it's a bad igniter if it's not the igniter it could be a thermostat or a flame switch check these things if need more help I'll be glad to help.

Replacing door on electric whirlpool dryer

On the bottom right and left of the dryer cabinet are 2 metal clips.
They are about 3 inches from the floor.
The door panel has corresponding slots in it for these clips to go into.
Put the clips in the door panel slot first, then align the door panel with the cabinet and close it shut. Replace 2 screws in the top right and left inside panel.

Dryer keeps running


okay, the timer wont shut the dryer off right? okay so maybe a a stuck start button, unplug one of the leads after you start it, unplug the lead and advance the timer knob to off and see if that was it. higher end dryers have that auto dry sensor feature that is supposed to shut it off when its done. Study the wiring diagram and find the circuit for autodry feature and disconnect one of the leads off that thermostat try that

Hotpoint washer dryer ultima 1200 model WD71S

most like cause is the door interlock is faulty but its one of those jobs that unless you have the right equiptment namely a tester you won't know for sure unless you change it. Could also be the voltage from the control board is't correct so best let someone who knows check it for you.

Frigidaire dryer

There is a switch under the lid,Look for a slot onder where the lid rests on the dryer,there is an actuator under there where the dryer lid when shut should avtivate,this switch is either bent out of place,or the little pin that hits it when shut is missing or broke off.
