The selector knob on my Whirlpool LER4634JQ1 does not move, so the dryer will not turn off automatically and no "end of cycle" buzzer sounds. Do I simply replace the timer?


Your timer most likely does need to be replaced. The timer has a small motor that causes it to rotate during the cycle and those can go bad causing the timer to not advance. Unfortunately, you cannot get just that timer motor anymore. Hope this helps!

My Whirlpool LEB6300PWO will randomly not start, or will start but only run briefly then stop. I know these types of problems are not usually related to the timer, but we have found that by either lightly...

Gas dryer not maintaining heat. 70 Series Kenmore/Whirlpool 76722


Fuse is ok . Problem is the soils on the burner valve . If the dryer heats when started , the electricity goes thru the coils to open the valve . Once the coils get warm , 1 will open (short) until it cools back down . The coils can be replaced just by removing the front panel . Only 2 screws hold the coils in place . No turning off gas , dissasembling dryer .

I would like to shut off buzzer in dryer please do not answer if there is a charge


If you are trying to shut off the buzzer because it sounds constantly, there is a problem with the dryer timer motor, and that is an entirely different problem.

However, if you are like me and find it really annoying and loud - and are trying to disable/remove it this is how to do so:

Tools: #2 Phillips head, 8-10" long
#2 Phillips head, 3" long
Optional but recommended: Vacuum cleaner with flex hose. (Unless your dryer is new or you maintain regularly, it is full of lint that is a potential fire hazard - this is a great opportunity to clean it out)
Optional but recommended: Duct tape, the metallic sealing kind, not the elastic adhesive tape

Steps:

1. REMOVE THE POWER PLUG FROM THE WALL. TURN THE DRYER CONTROL TO TIMED DRY AND TURN THE START KNOB TO ENSURE THE POWER IS OFF (IF THE DRYER STARTS, YOU PULLED THE WRONG PLUG - TRY AGAIN)

Note 1: As you start removing panels, it would be a good idea to clean as you go, otherwise you will have a big dusty mess...

Note 2: As you remove the panels either screw the screws back in to where to took them out of, or screw them into the holes of the panels you are removing, they can get mixed up or forgotten easily...

2. Remove the 2 screws that hold the cover from the underside of the dryer tumbler (above the lid for the washing machine)

3. Remove the 7 screws for the tin sheet that covers the blower/tumbler motor

4. Remove the 2 screws for the front control panel with all the knobs for the washer/dryer

5. The panel can be lowered out slots on each end by applying some pressure inwards, then down. Mine was a little more difficult to remove because of all the lint/**** built up so I used a screw driver for a little prying action. If you try this, pry on a side the that is not exposed in case you cause any dents, scratches, etc... for aesthetic reasons.

6. Once you have the panel down, vacuum this area very well, there are exposed contacts and terminals here that will be a source of ignition if a contactor goes bad and there is a lot of lint build up.

7. On the left side where the dryer controls are, there is is a little black rentangular box with two wires going into it - mine was between the dryer cycle knob and the start knob. It is the only component on the backside of the panel that will not have a corresponding knob on the front of the panel. Remove the screw that is holding it in place, and pull it up at an angle to clear a metal clip that holds it in on the side opposite the screw.

8. Once you have the buzzer free, follow each wire from the buzzer to its termination point on the dryer cycle controller. The buzzer should have black a wire going to the "common terminals" labeled either B or C, the other black wire is for the switch terminal of the dryer cycle controller. There should be "female" connectors on the wires from the buzzer, connected to the "male" terminals of the dryer cycle controller.

9. Remove these female connectors, which will disconnect the buzzer from the dryer. Be sure that you do not accidentally pull off an incorrect wire - and if you do, make sure to reconnect it before removing any other wires to avoid confusion as to what goes where.

At this point, get a flash light and take a look around the inner dryer housing. With your vacuum - if you have a brush attachment, use it - clean out all the built up lint from everything you can reach, especially around electrical connections, wires, the dryer motor windings, etc... Take your time, do it right - you spent the time taking the thing apart, it will not kill you (and actually may save your life) to spend 15 minutes cleaning the inside of your dryer.
If you have some duct tape, tape the blower exhaust connections from the plastic blower housing to the metallic duct and the flexible duct. I also taped the plastic piece that the lint screen inside the dryer door sits in because the foam rubber stripping had come apart. There areas are the main places that lint escapes into the inner parts of your dryer.

10. When you are done cleaning, reassemble the dryer in the reverse order you took it apart in.

11. Once reassembled, plug the unit back into the wall.

12. Turn the dryer control knob to as close to the end of a cycle as you can, turn the start knob to start the dryer. If the dryer starts, then stops at the end of the cycle without a buzzer - you were successful.

Clothes Dryer will not stop or be quiet


On some Kenmore which is made by whirlpool, there is a resistor connected to the timer control. when the machine is off can you listen to the timer switch and hear it running, making a clock ticking sound? If so, you need a new resistor. Being a dryer, when you open the door and it stops the button needs to be reset before it starts again, right? So I wouldnt be looking at the door switch as much as the start button. It may be the evil one.
