Dryer works only on high heat setting. Has been like this for weeks. Today would not heat at all on high, turned timer to low heat and it started heating again. Before this that position would not even come on. Right now comes on high heat position no heat. Other settings do not work at all. Is it the timer.
Answer Hello Tim,
As long a s the temperature switch is operating properly and there are no harness or connection issues, the most likely issue is a quick cycling thermostat. It is possible for the problem to be caused by the exhaust ducting and/or the timer. I would suspect the timer last though as it is not one of the more common issues.
Maytag electric dryer runs and heats but does not shut off. I put a new timer on and still does not stop with the timer.
Answer Hello Doug,
You should verify the cycling thermostat 694674 and the wiring between L1 and neutral through the timer motor. The cycling thermostat and wiring harness are the only two things in this circuit besides the timer. As a note, the original part has been discontinued and this adjustable thermostat is listed as a satisfactory substitution. It would need to be set on 140°F when installed to produce satisfactory results.
