Dryer won`t stop
Your favourite shirt is in the dryer and you can’t wait to take it out and wear it, but then you notice that your dryer is not stopping. This can be a very frustrating issue. But don’t worry, there are a couple different reasons this could be happening, and the team at Express Repair is just a phone call away when you need help with your dryer.
- Door switch: if you open the dryer door and it continues to spin, there is likely an issue with the dryer door switch. The dryer door switch is a safety mechanism that signals to the dryer to stop when the door is open. So, when you open the door and it does not immediately stop, you are going to have to get the switch looked at.
- Timer: the timer determines how long your cycle runs for by sending signals to the dryer when it is time to start or stop. If the timer is not working properly, it won’t be able to send the signal to the dryer to stop, and the dry cycle will continue to run.
- Cycling thermostat: if your dryer comes with an auto dry function and you use it, this feature uses something called a cycling thermostat. This thermostat is what advances the timer to signal the machine to stop. If the cycling thermostat is not working correctly and is not accurately reading the temperature, it will not signal the timer, and the machine will continue to run.
- Cool down thermostat: if your dryer comes with a feature that continues to spin the clothing once they are dry to reduce wrinkles, it more than likely uses a cool down thermostat. This thermostat allows the drum to continue spinning until it reaches a certain temperature. If this thermostat is not working correctly, it can cause the dryer to continue spinning until you manually turn it off.
