Dryer wont stop buzzing


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Timer
The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is bad and need replaced. If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. replace the heating elements

Kenmore Elite Gas Dryer: Dryer does not dry clothes completely, even when I set the times for 80-minutes. I usually need to set the timer an additional 60-minutes resulting in 2-hrs + 20-minutes of dryer...


    • 1 Check the dryer's fuse if the dryer's drum operates but does not heat. The fuse may not be working properly if there is a break inside. If it happens to be broken, replace it with a new fuse.
    • 2 The dryer's heating will not function properly if the timer does not work. Fix a bad timer by disconnecting the leads from the motor and setting the Volt-Ohm, or VOM, to RX100. Clip off the probes onto the leads. If the timer is set on infinity, then it needs to be replaced.
    • 3 If the drum is no longer spinning, first check to see if the motor pulley is working correctly. If it is not, then it will need to be replaced. Once everything is dissembled, take time out to clean out the compartment with a vacuum to remove dust and lint.
    • 4 If the dryer still is not functioning, then the dryer's belt may be broken. To fix the dryer's belt, you'll have to replace it with a new one. Line up the replacement belt with markings on the drums seen on the damaged one. Wind it around both the motor pulley and the idler pulley.
    • 5 The roller also could be damaged if the dryer still continues to not work. Fix the damaged roller by removing the tumbler to gain access, then remove the retaining clip on the roller by sliding it off. Reverse the process to install a new one
    • 6 If the dryer is not working at all (when you turn it on by the switch and it still does not work), consider replacing the terminal block. Use the VOM to check for voltage at the terminal block. Use extreme caution as the power needs to be on to run this test. Call an experienced electrician for help if need be.
    • 7 If the dryer is not working still, test to see if the dryer's switches are working properly. Set the VOM to RX1 and get rid of one of the leads to the switch, clipping the probes to the switch's terminals. When the reader is switched to infinity, press the start button. If the reader does not switch to zero, then the switch is bad and needs to be replaced by a professional.

The timer on my dryer isn't working properly


HI. the timer motor is damaged at this point. The Auto sector is dead. This is not a serviceable part, and you will need to replace the entire timer mechanism to correct this issue.

The timer doesn't work


If it is an electro-mechanical timer, then only solution is to replace same.
If it is electronically controlled, then problem is probably due to faulty board, again, it means a replacement being fitted.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Dryer works but timer won't move; therefore I have to set my own timer and remember to check the clothes.


There is really no fix to the timer. You will have to replace it. I suggest using www.repairclinic.com . You can buy this item at a cheaper rate than a service call. Always remember to disconnect power prior to changing out parts. Good luck.

Stops during cycle


Maybe. Will the unit restart in the same position or do you have to move it? If it will work in the same position and all you're doing is waiting for a bit of cooldown...it could be a defective high limit switch that is resetting. If it will restart only after you move the timer, then change out the timer. This is a bit of a mystery since timers generally don't have 'dead spots'...they are designed differently than that.
