The dryer will not advance to the next cycle. The nob does not move on its own.
Answer Hello Christina. You need to test for power to the timer motor. If there is power there and the timer does not advance, you will need to order and replace the timer 3976569 on 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 stop but the heat elements stay on. In order to stop it from heating up so high when cycle is finished and dryer has stopped from turning is to unplug the power cord. What is causing this?
Answer Hello DIYFIXER,
You will want to check your wiring from timer to the heater and look for any wires that may be shorting to ground. Check the timer to see if you are getting constant continuity from BK to R. If you are then the contacts in the timer are bad and causing heater circuit to continuously be open.
My dryer turns around, but no heat coming out..
Answer Hello Gerome. You will need to test the thermostats W10480709 and the flame sensor 338906 and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter and make sure it is getting hot enough to light the gas. 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
The Dryers timer will not stop at the end of the cycle it goes on to the next cycle it just keeps on drying the cloths.
Answer Hello George. If the timer 3976569 does not shut off, and runs past the off position, you will need to replace the timer. Hope this helps.
When I set the timer, it does not move. Is this possibly a bad timer? It will come on and heat up just does not stop drying unless it is on the cool cycle.
Answer Hello Mary. A few parts could cause your issues. The most common is the dryer's cycling thermostat 3387134. This part can be tested with a multi meter TJMA-DM1. I will include a link in this email to an article detailing how to test various parts with a meter. If you need more assistance, you may want to contact our repair forum. They may be able to provide more assistance. I hope this info helps!
My timer does not move after starting the dryer and there is no heat.
Answer Bas, have you started the dryer and let it run in the "timed Dry" setting, to see if it will advance, it should wether the dryer heats or not. If the timer does not advance you can be 95% sure, you'll need a timer, or you have a wiring problem. There is a 1"X1" square plastic cover on the left lower side of the front panel. remove that panel, it is an inspection opening, you can observe the ignition process and determine what is or is not occurring : When you start the dryer, there should be a click, then you should see an orange glow in a few seconds, it should glow for a few more seconds and you should hear a click the glow will start to fade and the gas should be ignited and you'll have a flame. Some indications, no first click / No power to gas valve , no glow / broken igniter or bad flame sensor, glows but no fade or click/ bad flame sensor, everything works proper but no flame/ignition/ bad gas valve coils or no gas to unit. Hope this was helpfull.
My Whilpool gas dryer turn on and runs but the gas does not come on. It does not click for the gas. I have replaced the dryer igniter kit on 12-10-10
Answer Hello Danny. Check and see if the igniter is glowing. Also test the thermal fuses and flame sensor. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Hope this helps.
