The dryer runs and runs and runs and the dial never moves from "optimum dry." It is producing heat, though.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. I am using this model number: DBL333EAOWW
There are 2 things that cause the timer not to advance. Either the cycle thermostat or the timer motor.
The cycle thermostat is item 1315 on this drawing:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=206905&diagram_id=21330627#d21330627
but is not listed in the detailed items.
This is a close up view and source for the thermostat.

The timer is item 100 of this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=206905&diagram_id=21330624#d21330624
or here:

The cycle thermostat is located on the front of the blower housing and can be tested with a stick match and a meter. You remove the thermostat.. Heat the metal face with a match until it clicks and quickly test for continuity. It should only have continuity when it is hot.

There can be a wiring problem also on the thermostat terminals but you would note that during removal of the thermostat.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Whirlpool imperial 80 won't heat much


That clicking noise is normal. You may have a thermostat problem. It sounds as though it isn't letting the element get hot enough, or cycling the element on/off too often.

The timer is stripped inside and needs to be replaced. The cogged teeth are made of plastic and a tooth or two has broken off keeping the timer from moving while running

The timed dry cycle sometimes does not turn off;


If it continues running beyond the cycle point it probably is no longer producing heat and just tumbling. Eventually there is a heat sensor that is triggered. Mine does the same thing. It is likely the result of the timer going bad, though immediaely not a necessity to fix, in the long haul it will save you utilities.

Extremely low drum heat but setting is on HIGH.


Electric (Kenmore - 60931) dryer takes forever (several cycles) lately to dry clothes set on high heat (actual heat in tub feels low though). There are no obstructions in the venting and the 240 volt connection is fine. The timer rotates the dial (timer motor working). Help!!!

Dryer not drying clothes


your dryer is a 220 plug check the circuit breaker first
one 110 runs the heating element and the other 110 runs motor and dials
this is usually the cause of dryer malfunctions
heating elements are simple big mesh of curled metal wire like a toaster but more of it
it would take alot to knock out the heating element
check the dials too these could be sticking or worn dials you dont have to run dryer to check dials
