Tip

Dryer Dry Time Appears to Jump or Stall During Auto Dry Cycles


The operation of dryers during the Auto Dry Cycles is based on the moisture content of the clothes as they cycle over the moisture sensor. At the start of the cycle, the default estimated time is displayed depending on the cycle selected. The moisture sensor feeds information to the control based on the "wetness' of the clothes during the first 5 minutes of the cycle. The control then calculates and display a new estimated time making the time appear to "jump".

Recalculation happens again based on the reduction in the "wetness" of the clothes when the Estimated Time Remaining is between 15 to 5 minutes. The control will extend the cycle and display the Estimated Time Remaining unchanged if it "sees" no significant reduction in the wetness level of the clothes. The dryer will run longer than initially projected and give the appearance that the displayed time has "stalled".

Clean the sensor bars for any films or dirt build up to make sure it sends accurate information to the control. Level the dryer front to back and side to side to ensure the clothing will tumble properly and making good and proper contact with the moisture sensor bars. Check the dryer vent duct for any restriction to ensure a good air flow as the operation of the Auto Dry Cycles is based primarily on the air flow condition.

It is highly recommended to clean the lint filter before every load and make sure the dryer is grounded at the wall plug.

My maytag neptune dryer quit heating, after my wife changed the temp setting on the console from regular, to extra low drying temperature. The heating element reads 10.5 ohms. The thermal cutoff reads 0.02 ohms. The hi-limit thermo reads 0.02 ohms. The power coming into the dryer is 240 volts. What can I check or need to replace.
