Default Dryer won't shut off
Model Number: MED5700TQ   Brand: Maytag   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My dryer will not shut off in either the 'timer' mode or the 'moisture sensor mode'. The timer does not move at all. It seems to heat up ok and the clothing drys fine. Also, the dryer will shut off if the door is opened. I've checked the venting and everything is clear. I'm thinking the timer is bad, but obviously don't want to replace a good part, especially at the cost of it.

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for MED5700TQ models | AppliancePartsPros.com

Since it does not advance in either timed or auto modes the timer is the likely culprit.
The times motor gets power from different circuits in each mode.

Unplug the unit and one wire for the timer motor.
Then measure the timer motor winding.
If it is open (infinite ohms) it is toast.
If it has continuity, it may still be the motor as it may have other problems.

Then the only way to know for sure is to do a live test.
Set the unit to timed dry and start a cycle.
Measure across the timer motor for 120 volts AC.
If it is there and the timer does not advance then it is toast.

If there is no 120 volts it does not eliminate the timer as the cause since power to the timer motor does go through other timer contacts.

Unless you have some electrical experience I do not recommend doing a live test. There is 240 at the timer and that is lethal.

I appreciate your prompt response. Maybe a 'dumb' question, but when you say motor you a referring to the small round device with 2 wires that is attached to the timer assy, correct ? I checked it with an ohm meter and it shows a resistance of approx. 2750, but it doesn't beep when I check for continuity. Don't want to be a pest, but like to understand a little rather then just replacing parts. Thanks in advance, Ebb.

Yes

Not sure why you do not get a beep but it does have continuity.

Probably just the way the meter works. It may have to see 100 ohms or less to beep. you would have to look up the meter specs/operation.
This is with one motor wire disconnected, correct?
It is important to do this as it prevents you from reading an alternate/parallel circuit path.

Don't worry about being a pest. I am also like you, I want to understand how things work.

Thanks denman. I actually checked with one wire still connected to the terminal and with both wires disconnected and got the same reading. Anyway, I ordered a timer assy. so hopefully that will do the trick. I sure miss the old days of appliances lasting 15-20 years w/o needing repairs. I think the next set I buy will be a brand other then from the Whirlpool Corp. The last 2 sets I've owned needed repairs while less then 6 years old.

Thanks again, Ebb.
