Dryer drum stops turning when it get to cool down cycle on all setting.
Answer Hello James. It sounds like the timer W10185982 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
My dryer takes at least 3 cycles to dry my clothes. They are hot when they are done so there's heat. But it doesn't matter the size of my loads, unless 10 small items, it takes forever to dry which is costing $$$$. It looks like troubleshooting thru the internet, I might need a thermostat cylinder. Do I need new heating element too? Or am I wrong in my solution?
Answer Hello Austin. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
Dryer shuts off on automatic Dry high heat Energy Preferred cycle, but works fine on the timed dry cycle.
The most likely cause for the unit not operating properly in the auto dry would be the timer itself. The cycling thermostat will need to be tested but if it checks ok then the timer is the issue.
Dryer will only heat on timed dry setting, and only stays hot for a few minutes then goes on and off. Tested with multimeter and cycling thermostat seems to be the culprit...it has continuity between two of the terminals, but does not between the two others. I just want to make sure before I order. Thanks!
Answer Kyle, to test the 3387134 cycling thermostat, at room temperature, you should read resistance (closed circuit) across the two larger silver colored terminals. Across the two brass colored terminals you should have a resistance reading of 56 to 84 K ohms if the bias heater is in tact. When a dryer works in one setting, but not the other(s), that could be attributed to a faulty time W10185970. You may want to check the timer heat circuit on all settings, before you order your parts.
Dryer does not start cycle. Panel shows sensing but no start of cycle.
Answer Hello Vince1949. You will need to check the thermal fuse and make sure the belt is not broken in the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
My dryer will not heat on the high heat setting but will heat on low dry or timed dry. What part would I need to possibly fix this issue?
We would need to have the model number of your unit to be able to assist properly. To properly assist you we will need your model number to help you with this. Please post your model number with a new question on the parts page. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
