Question about Dryers

1 Answer

My dryer ran all night and the timer never shut it off. Now I have no heat from the dryer either, but it will spin. I have already reset the circuit breaker, didn't help. How can I test the timer to make sure it needs replacement? Can a broken timer cause the elements to not heat up as well?

WED5321SQ0 dryer doesn't heat or shut off once it's running


well if ran all night you maybe be running a even heat or auto dry cycle. i would first try on a timed dry see if heat then. if does heat (which probably wont) you will be need to replace either the sensor or board that controls the auto dry. or a very small chance that the timers bad. most likely you have a bad heating element. if the machine doesnt heat on the timed dry, then you need to check continuity on the heat fuse(located on heat element housing). if good then check continuity on heat element. i would say you have a bad element or heat fuse.

Dryer spins, no heat, timer does not seem to function


Your timer mechanism is damaged. this will happen if the timer motor is faulty. it will not advance the cycle correctly. replace the timer/control asap. Please rate and have a great weekend:)

Wont start after running all night without shutting off


Bad timer, When the machine just runs and runs and runs, or runs for a very short time and shows that it ran the whole cycle but the clothes are still wet then the timer has gone bad and needs to be replaced. IF you go to repairclinic.com. You can order the timer from there or your local appliance repair company. They are around 40 dollars and you can replace the part fairly easy

MAYTAG PYE3200AYW, WILL NOT RUN, PRIOR TIMER PROBLEM


When it ran all night was it heating then? Are any of the breakers tripped? Are the connections secure in the back? But I believe if the heat was working when it was running, the timer may be the problem and they are simple to replace and not that expensive. If this unit is older than 15 years, then it may be time for a new one. The parts and time wasted may be better spent on a new one.

Will dryer work if timer is inoperative


Check the breaker first, then check the connections in the back of the dryer, then check the element itself. It may be burned in two. The timer may be coincidentally bad as well.

Whirlpool electric dryer ran all night and won't heat


Yes it will heat. The two are normally not dependent on the other. The element could be bad. Check the breaker first, then the connections in the back, then the element. The timer could be bad itself allowing it to run all night. This could be a blessing in disguise as the clothes would have been damanged possibly from all the excess heat.

Whirlpool drier has no heat and won't shut off . . .


it was most likely caused by the timer not turning off and burning out the heating element or a temperature switch or tripping one side of the circuit breaker in the house. it really needs to be checked out by a professional. unless it is old then you might want to replace it.
  • best case scenario:
  • the breaker has tripped (turn it off then back on to find out)
  • the TIMER MOTOR is the only problem <$30
If the timer itself is bad then it will cost a lot more.

CK IF YOU HAVE 220V COMMING IN OR THE HEATING ELEMENT IS GOOD. OR CK THE THM FUSE.IS NO GOOD. BUT IF DRYER RAN OVER NIGHT AND DIDNOT TRUN OFF YOU HAVE TIMER PROBLUM. THE DRYER SHULD TRUN OFF EVEN YOU HAVE HEAT IN THE DRYER OR NOT.
