When the dryer is open the dryer keeps spining and wont stop you have to unplug it


Check the door switch. If the plunger is stuck, the dryer keeps running.

MY DRYER STOP SPINING WHAT DO I DO BUT THE HEATING ELEMENT STILL WORK


There may be a belt around the drum and the motor pully that has broken. You can't get a solution until the real cause of failure is found. You or someone is going to have to look inside and see what turns the drum. Look fer it!
