I have my dryer set at 70 minutes but after 10 minutes it stops. Is this a timer problem? Thanks in advance.
Answer Hello Pierre P.,
This is an electronic control issue. The control is not sending the timer motor voltage in pulses as it was designed. You will need to replace the electronic control W10116566 to correct this issue.
Heater element works when I bypass all the wiring. Is there a fuse somewhere?
Answer Hello Gary. You will need to test the thermal cut-off kit 279769 and make sure it reads closed for continuity. If one is open, replace both parts in the kit. 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
Gas dryer works great in timer mode. In sensor mode it just stops after drying for a short time (10-15min) knob does not advance to the end, it just stops. Sometimes it works for a load or two. I think that occurs after I unplug it to trouble shoot. Any Ideas?
Answer Hello Jim. It sounds like the venting system may be 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. Hope this helps.
