Dryer does not shut off. Heats great, just will not shut off. Timer seems to tick even when it's not on.
Answer Hello J.C.,
Unless there is a shorted harness issue, this will be a stuck set of contacts in the timer 8566184.
My electric Roper dry only heats on high heat setting. Whats wrong with it?
The first thing that you will want to check is the venting from the blower wheel to the outside of the home to make sure that there are no restriction in the system. If the venting checks ok then you will want to test the cycling thermostat or thermistor depending on what your model has on it. We would need the model number to be able to assist properly.
This model wed5820sw0 doesn't advance the dial and doesn't shut off on accudry, works on everything else, good heat.
The most likely cause for the unit timer to no advance would be a faulty motor on the timer. The part number to replace would be 8566184.
New ignitor, no glow; fuse and flame sensor shows good continuity; no clicks; rest works OK. What else needs checking, start switch?
Answer Hello Christopher. Start tracing voltage from the igniter and see where your losing it at. Check the thermal cut-offs and everything.
