Dryer won't stopp running, ran all night!
« on: July 14, 2012, 08:33:32 AM »
Model Whirlpool lgr4634jq2 
I put cloths in the dryer last night before I went to bed and started it.
This morning the dryer was still running. The cloths are dry, but it does not seem like it's heating now.
I can't afford a new dryer, please help me try and fix this one, thank you.

You may have a faulty advancer motor in the timer. Check on timed dry with a volt meter. You should have regular line voltage across the two leads. Appr 120 volts. If not replace timer.

If your Gas Dryer is set for Automatic Dry,
and if the white Thermal Fuse blows,
(because of a Vent problem)
the Drum Moltor will continue to Tumble,
but there will be no heat,
and the Timer Motor will be paused ....
