You most likely have to replace the POS timer, my girlfriend\'s failed out of the box, a month later and again two years later. I dissected the timer and found the cheapest set of plastic reduction gears between the timer motor and the gear that drives the knob, and one of them had the teeth stripped off.

You can find them on ebay for less than $50 shipped rather than pay $100+ for one from a parts store.

SOURCE: Electric Dryer problem

the timer has a small motor to advance the timer. the motor is the likely problem. on some old maytags you can get just the motor, but you probably will have to replace the complete timer. hope this helps.

SOURCE: Dryer Timer dial will not move but dryer works

Will the dryer move forward in timed dry? if it does not then you need a new timer. If if will advance in timed dry but does not advance in auto mode then the high limit needs to be replaced on the heater.

I have a Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer that will turn on, rotate, but will not get hot and dry the clothes. A load of clothes in the afternoon, didn’t dry, tried again but didn’t dry – went to bed after putting on auto dry - next morning the dryer was still rotating and didn’t turn off. No hot air – only cold air.

SOURCE: maytag centennial commercial technology motor will not run

Sounds like the door contact switch is stuck in the on position.
You can replace the switch pretty easily.
Turn off the power, and with a phillips stubby screwdriver, remove the two screws in the front kick panel of the front panel and tip the bottom edge out. There are two metal retainer clips on the top edge of the front panel and as you tip the panel, the top retainers will disengage. There are 2 wires on the front panel to the door switch that are easily popped off and the switch will pop out of the front panel with minimal effort. I'm sure you can find a door switch for this online at repairclinic.com

Our Maytag Centennial Electric dryer is not cycling in auto dry mode but will in timer mode. Any thoughts?


There is a sensor that the clothes have to touch when the drum spins. This sensor measures how wet the clothes are. If you don't have enough of a load in the dryer then the sensor wont detect the dryness. Or it could be a bad sensor or connection or main board.

Why is my timer not counting down, and no heat?


Make sure the vent and heater air intake are not clogged with lint. Also, check the gas pilot to make sure it is not blocked up with gas line sediment, and the ignitor is working properly. The timer is probably waiting for a signal from the flame sensor.

Amana Gas CLothes Dryer Mod#NDG7800AWW dryer will heat and does dry some but when it moves to the less dry the dial does not move and the dryer does not heat


if your clothes are damp because you say it does dry some what then it sounds like it could be the gas coils,the coils will work for awhile but then they fail and the timer will not move if there is no heat on the more or less
