Driyer does not shut off runs continiously

Model: 97588210 Stock: 75882 gas dryer will dry clothes when set for "timed dry", but does not turn off at the end of the "timed dry" cycle and continues to cycle through "air dry" before shutting down. Is this a timer problem? If so is it difficult to replace?

Yes this is a timer problem. The timer is easy to replace but can cost around $100. You might try a used appliance store and see if they have a used one.

Gas dryer does not dry in "timed Dry" setting


In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

After dryer shuts off, timer continues to run. Kenmore model #110.86181810, part # I think is 692032 and sears says it is no longer in stock. Anyone still have one?


I assume you're talking about the buzzer. Many high end dryers do that until you remove the clothes. heated clothes can set wrinkles if kept in the same position for a long time. it's a feature, not a problem, unless it keeps buzzing after you remove the dried clothes!

I have model # crgr7900A31 gas dryer front end loading. The dryer will not shut off. It continues to run.


Hi, If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.
Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle: The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees. When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.) The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

Sounds like your problem could be the thermostats or the heating element, they will normally cause the dryer to take a long time to dry the clothes

Dryer smells of natural gas


Of course, this applies to gas dryers only. If you smell natural gas near your gas dryer, do not light matches or a lighter and don't operate electrical switches or anything that might spark, igniting an explosion. Immediately shut off the gas valve that serves the dryer. If the smell is mild, ventilate the area, wait until the air is clear, and re-light your pilot light. If the smell is strong, move everyone outside, leaving the doors open to ventilate the house. Turn off the gas supply valve --located by the gas meter on the gas inlet pipe-- by rotating the valve one quarter turn with an adjustable wrench. The valve's oblong stem should be perpendicular (at a right angle) to the inlet pipe to stop the flow of gas. Call your gas supplier (or the fire department) from a neighbor's phone or a cellular phone outside the house.
