stupid free dryer

10 posts in this topic

i am working on a maytag dryer model LDE 7500 and the only time it heats up is in auto dry, If i put it on time dry,it doesn't heat up, and in auto dry it heats up but doesn't shut off. Do i need a timer ir in of the thermostats?

check your heating element to be sure it is not broke and grounded, I think on this model the time dry is air fluff only . very good old dryer so it is worth trying to fix .

see if you are getting power to the timer moter,  it will only have power to it when the element is cycled off.
