It sounds like it has a loose or burnt contact in the timer. you may need to change the timer.

I'm inclined to think that the problem is in the electronics, in the circuit board, since it's acting so oddly. The timer dial shouldn't allow the heating element to energize when the door is open.

If the thermal fuse is blown, you should NOT get heat.

Fault code f07


The type of dryer would help a lot.... If it is a Maytag you can try resetting the code...
To reset the error code you need to turn the dial to the 6 oclock position.
Press the start button 3 times
Turn the dial 1 position clockwise
Press start button again 3 times
Then turn to off and this should clear the error code.if you still get the F07 error code then the control board may be the problem
If it is a Hot point You have a lower element failure..

What is f04 Whirlpool 6th sense?


F04 indicates a fault in the heating circuit.
It can be a main board, wiring, thermostat or heater fault.
You would need to check the heater and thermostats with a multimeter to ensure they are not open circuit.
.
However, the first thing to try is a reset of the control board.
.
Turn the dial to off.
Turn the dial clockwise to the 6 o'clock position.
Press the start button 3 times
Turn the dial 1 position clockwise.
Press the start button 3 times.
.
This should erase the code.
Try the machine again.
If the code comes back, you need to check out the heating circuit.
If you change or repair any part, reset the board, then try again.

Frigidaire gallery drys heating element stays on when the door is open


L-2 goes directly to the element. You my friend have a shorted heater element which continues to feed whenever the timer is turned on. You need to inspect the element and see if it is touching the pan.

Zanussi TC7102W drying problems


not likely the timer but it does control the heat circuit. suspect the fan-air flow is being blocked and the elements are cycling on a safety thermostat instead of the operating thermostat. check for blocked or restricted vent and plenty of air coming out the vent when running. check for a flapper on the vent not opening or only open part way.

Dryer heating is sporadic, sometimes can dry in 45 minutes, other times 4 hours for same type loads?


Not sure what make or model you have but it sounds like you have a bad element. It's hanging loose and the ends are touching from time to time causing what you have described.
