The buzzer on the dryer keeps going off when i go to start the dryer and dryer wont start


That is a bad sign. If the buzzing starts when you press the start button and stops when you release its almost safe to say that the motor has a dead short or grounded out and causing that to happen. You can check the start switch by getting a multimeter and with the dryer unplugged take the wires off the switch, place a lead on each pin and press the start with meter set for continuity. If it shows continuity when presed and stops when released your motor is shot and needs to be replaced.

My dryer Bosch model number WTA3003GB/01 will not keep turning after being switched on. It works if the switch is pressed in but stops as soon as the switch is released.

MY SIMPSON MAXIDRY 362 3.5KG HEAVY DUTY DRYER KEEPS OVERHEATING AND CUTTING OUT. WHEN IT STOPS AND I PRESS THE SAFETY SWITCH IT TURNS ON AGAIN BUT ONLY FOR 10 MINUTES. CAN YOU ADVICE ME ON WHAT I CAN DO...


I would check the exhaust pipe outside and make sure it is not blocked and has good strong air flow while the dryer is running. If there is not good airflow, then clean out the exhaust hose and pipe. There could be other problems, but I would start with this.

Asko Dryer stops running when you release the start button.


Hi, this is a simple issue here. these switches will fail from time to time. the start switch is unable to hold the circuit, in return, opening it upon release of the button.

Simply replacing the switch will fix this issue. switch is 20 dollars tops.

Neptune Dryer Time keeps going forever


your problem is most likely an issue with the start button. if it is stuck, the dryer will keep running even though it has passed the off position. your start switch probably needs replaced. Joe

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.
