Dryer not heating and it want shut off.
Answer You will need to test the thermostats and the flame sensor and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter to see if it is good. If it is not glowing, test for power. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter for the testing procedures. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I have a whirlpool gas dryer (model# WGD5810SW0), which does not generate any heat when running. Cleared the dyer air duct, but still dryer does not generate any heat. What could be the problem?
Answer Hello! The first thing you need to check is the ignitor. Check and make sure it is glowing at least a bright white. If it is ok, then test all the thermal fuses and make sure they are closed or 0 with a multi-meter. The flame sensor will read closed as well. If all of this is good, then you may have bad coils. Hope this helps.
My dryer keeps running does not shut off when I put it on the lowest drying cycle. It is the cycle that senses when it is done. I have replaced just about every part. And it keeps on running. I even replaced the timer. The only thing I haven't replaced are the coils. Do you think that it the problem?
Answer Hello Karen,
This is usually caused by a restriction in the exhaust duct. This can be a crimp or a clog and the duct has to terminate to atmosphere, (not under the house). To prove this, pull the unit out and dis-connect the duct from the back of the machine. With no clothes in the unit, start it on an automatic cycle. Within 5 to 10 minutes you will notice the timer has advanced. If not, the unit may have a bad or missing timer resistor 279872.
Delicate cycle does re-heat after first heating.
Answer Hello Mark,
The issue points to a bad coil 279834 on the gas valve.
My Maytag dryer will not shut off. Does not matter if the dial is set on automatic or timed drying. Model #MDG9606BWW
Answer Hello Mel. Test for power to the timer motor. If there is power there, and the timer does not advance, you will need to replace the timer on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
